Slowly the "tide" changes for UCF

The clueless one is still you, and apparently others. The NCAA FBS Record Book linked earlier in this thread LITERALLY AND QUITE CLEARLY spells out how FBS national champions are determined starting WITH the BCS era. There is no gray area. Starting in 1998, the record book goes out of its way to separate a national champion determined by a recognized process and a team that was just the highest ranked in a final poll.
 

 

So this means UCF should change all their "National Champions" banners to "National Poll Leader" banners.  I have to tell you, "National Poll Leader" is much more fitting. 😂😂😂

This was actually determined months ago but I guess their crushed natty hopes for this year have them in reminiscent mode.

I notice you skipped right over the second bullet of point #2...so let me show it to you again:

- If the NCAA really stopped considering the polls/formulas they previously considered, why do they still list them (and the teams they rank as #1) as PRESENT selectors in the official record book?

YOUR bullet point doesn't mean **** in this conversation. The NCAA has spoken in regards to national champions post 1998. Y'all were the highest ranked team in one final, loopy poll, not a national champion. Unlike ats, I know how to cut and paste and will continue to do so until this sinks in:

From 1998-2013, the BCS was used to
determine national champions in FBS.
All
“major selectors” not otherwise listed also
selected the BCS champion as its higest
ranked team in those seasons. In years where
a “major selector” had a team other than the
BCS champion as highest ranked team in its
final poll that team is listed below the BCS
Champion.


+Beginning in 2014, the College Football
Playoff was used to determine national champions
in FBS
. All “major selectors” not otherwise
listed also selected the CFP champion
as its higest ranked team in those seasons.
In years where a “major selector” had a team
other than the CFP champion as highest
ranked team in its final poll that team is listed
below the CFP Champion.

Other keywords to notice are how they used the term "major selector" in there rather than "national champion major selector". They are making it abundantly clear that they are not associating champion with someone who was only top ranked in a poll.

Notice the NCAA record book uses the term "CFP Champion" and not "National Champion" in that paragraph. One of several indications that there are multiple ways to be listed in the record book as a national champion.

I'll do you one better than a "copy and paste."  How about a screen shot of the actual document itself!

Notice the circled parts...National Champion...and the effective dates 1896 to PRESENT.  Not 1896 to 2013 or 1896 to 1996 as you seem to believe.

I realized awhile ago that this has pretty much turned into you just stringing us along because there's no way you're this ******* clueless .... but as a good host, I'll oblige and just assume that maybe you have a vision problem that keeps you from differentiating red from white. I'll use green this time:

Because of your irrational dislike for the best football team in the American conference since it was formed, I know how hard you REALLY want to ignore an actual screen shot of the NCAA record book associating the words NATIONAL CHAMPION with the formula that ranked UCF #1.  I feel sorry that you guys have not come close to experiencing the highs that UCF fans have been able to experience. So sad.

Here's a question. If it was as clear cut as you claim it is, then why doesn't he NCAA simply make a modification to that page in the NATIONAL CHAMPONS section of the document to say 1896 to 1996.  And why doesn't the NCAA simply remove UCF from the NATIONAL CHAMPIONS section of the document?
