Broncos are a top 20 team, cool.

The final College Football Playoff is out and it is a complete joke as the committee doesn’t care one bit about the Group of Five. This season was one of a kind for the Group of Five with multiple 10-win teams but the respect in the polls are non-sense.

Memphis is going to the Cotton Bowl by being the highest-ranked Group of Five team and despite beating a No. 20 Cincinnati team did not move up at all.

Boise State also winning the Mountain West over Hawaii in a convincing matter by three touchdowns did not move up at all. Appalachian State defeated Louisiana and moved up one spot and only because fellw G5 Cincinnati lost.

The committee had no reason to move up Memphis because they already were ahead of all of the Group of Five because there was no way that Boise State would jump the Tigers if both won.

There are a trio of teams with three losses each behind every one-loss Group of Five champions. The Mountain West, and other leagues had multiple victories over Power 5 teams, more double-digit win teams, and nothing.

Air Force at 10-2 is not ranked yet a four-loss Virginia team is No. 24 who are going to the Orange Bowl and then there is Oklahoma State sitting there at No. 25 also with four losses.

It seems after these final rankings there seems no point to even include the Group of Five in the playoff rankings or how it is currently constructed.

Why not just have a separate ranking for the token New Year’s Six game that is a nice gesture of goodwill toward the teams not in a power conference.
