** I do NOT consider this obviously corrupted college football national championship game as legitimate. If you study college football history, the alleged final national championship game has been corrupted even before the Bowl Crap Series. The current college football playoff system is a joke to me.

The University of Central Florida finished with a perfect regular season record, 12-0, and yet they were not only overlooked for the number one playoff seed but had to settle on a Peach Bowl bid. You could argue that college football has been corrupted since its inception. However, my solution is to list teams by win loss records.

The teams with the top 16 or even 32 records get to play. The current bowl games would be scrapped or used as playoff games. I never care about the current ranking system. I never cared about the ranking system thirty years ago.

It is NOT rocket science. You just select the top teams by their win loss records. The teams that could have played in a six team 2017 NCAA Division one playoffs should have been:

* University of Central Florida 12-0
* Clemson 12-1
* Oklahoma 12-1
* Wisconsin 12-1
* Georgia 12-1
* Alabama 11-1
