When NIU (Who) Wisc. and Louisville go to BCS Bowls and OU,Georgia, LSU, A&M Don't that's a Major problem in the system. JMO.
It's straight horsesh!t...
Chit woulda been narley...unfortunately, Terrelle Pryor and and bs top 16 rule make this BCS lineup super ghey
Yeah it is garbage. The best teams aren't going and that is a problem. This years slate of games is embarassing.
Worst part is it coulda been a great year of games too
Kirk Herbstreit agrees wholeheartedly, and I think it's a legitimate gripe. But what's a better system? 16 team playoff? No more conference tie-ins to bowl games? More ridiculous "rules" governing who is eligible based on wins/rank/standings? I fear it's only going to get worse.
South Carolina deserves to go before Louisville, OU, Wisconsin or NIU!
Yep. I wish it was back to the good 'ol days when the bowls got to pick who they wanted with no stipulations. Enough of this "everybody gets a shot" BS. It's killing the bowls.
#7 team going to the Peach Bowl, enough said
The better system is to have the bowls (including the ones in the 4 team playoff) select who they want.
This from a Sooners fan?
Same thing that makes you laugh...
kill them whitey ded
It's the method that the BCS uses to get around anti-trust lawsuits. It's not a football decision.
Fact is that the fans just don't matter anymore. Nobody on top cares what the masses want. And nobody cares what would be "good" football games. All about money, whether making it, keeping it, keeping it out of other people's hands, etc.
Don't understand your point I am Not laughing. And yes I did Forget the The Ole Ball coach's team.
What if we had the "comity" that will be selecting the top four teams for the playoff also formulate all other bowl matchups as well. We could then have all bowls bid for the predetermined matchups. That way all matchups would be made due to accomplishments on the field and intrigue of contrasting styles or storylines and not do to contracts.
Nah, I think the bowls still should choose. Would teams with small fanbases get screwed? Yep. I don't care.
Why do you think the bowls choosing would be a better system than the one I propose? Just curious.
Because they would get pressured by the lesser conferences/teams to "include the little guy". Since they would be an official committee, that would open the possibility of a lawsuit if they ignored the smaller schools. If the power went to the bowls, no lawsuit would be possible.
I stole this from a commentator (Oklahoma fan) on EDSBS because it's brilliant...
An obviously sub-standard team made it in over us. They have 1 (ONE!) win over a top 25 team, and they lost to a team that didn’t even sniff the top 25 all year, whereas OU’s only losses were to top 5 teams. Oh sure, they won their conference, but that conference is awful awful awful. I mean, they even had something taken from them by NC State this year! I don’t think it’s too late in the process to change the bowl matchups, and I hope the Orange Bowl committee will do the right thing and rescind their invite to FSU.
I don't think many FSU fans disagree.
Now that is legit. Wish that could really happen. SMH
Why So Serious?
Take care of your shit on the field and you wouldn't have to worry about it..
Umm, why would you have OSU in the Rose Bowl?? Had they not have been on probation they'd probably have faced us in the BCS NC game..
I think it's hilarious....
You don't understandmy point cuz yer a sooner fan, and therefore slow. The sooner have benefitted several times from stupid rules... same thing that makes you laugh, makes you cry...
Don't' start acting like it's not poetic justice, either... it is clearly karma

The sooners benefitted a few times when they should not have been in a bcs bowl like when they lost to Kansas state in their championship game.
There was a problem in 2000 when Florida State was selected to play in the national championship instead of Miami...
