The SEC’s commissioner is getting crushed for his “advice” for UCF’s football program after the Knights missed out on the College Football Playoff.
UCF, which has won 25 games in a row, missed out on the College Football Playoff for the second straight year.
Greg Sankey, the SEC’s commissioner, thinks that UCF needs to “look inward” moving forward.
“We had a similar issue in men’s basketball a couple years ago, when we only had three schools selected for the tournament,” Sankey said, according to ASU Sports Law & Biz. “Rather than looking at the committee, the schedule, etc., we need to look inward. How can we do better for ourselves?”
This is a comically bad take. https://t.co/FXtvIomDM7

Of course, people are laughing at this comment, considering UCF has won 25 games in a row. Is it possible to do any better than that?
Well, UCF could attempt to schedule stronger non-conference games. If the Knights had played a major Power 5 team or two in the non-conference, maybe they would’ve gotten more consideration.
However, these major Power 5 teams have little reason to schedule UCF. So, even if the Knights were trying to schedule these major games, it might not be possible.
For now, UCF will just continue to try winning a bunch of games in a row. The Knights will face LSU in a bowl game.
