Let's assume Bama wins out, as well as Oregon, KState, and ND. We will most likely see Bama v. Clemson or Bama v. Louisville or some such game in the Sugar. Meanwhile, we'd see ND playing someone like Nebraska in the Rose or maybe OU again in the Fiesta.
Would be pretty sweet to see the next 2 and the next 2 after that playing each other in bowls, even if it doesn't affect the championship. Bama v. ND or Bama v. KState would be fun matchups to see. Or, say UGA wins out...sub them in place of Bama in all scenarios. Just seems like a buzzkill to see Bama/UGA v. Clemson/Louisville.
Maybe I'm wrong. Thoughts?
100% agree... and I think next year is when that starts. But not this year.
The selection order this year is Fiesta, Sugar, Orange.
If the BCS Champ game is oregon vs k-state. Then...
Rose - Big Ten Auto (nebraska) vs #1 selection (replacement for oregon - probably a Pac 12 team due to close ties)
Fiesta: #2 selection (replacement for k-state - notre dame) vs #3 selection (???)
Sugar: bama vs #4 selection (???)
Orange: ACC Champ (fsu) vs #5 selection (probably big east champ - louisville)
There is no way the Sugar would pick an sec team... so oklahoma??? Not sure.
Would much rather see bama vs notre dame... not gonna happen.

Glad I'm not the only one. I've felt this way since these &hi% games started happening. Not only is it not what we want to see, but the really good teams that come up just shy have a hard time getting up to play in these games. When it comes to non-champ games, at least the Rose has the traditional matchup (at least in theory). The Cotton Bowl is usually a better matchup than the last 2 BCS games.
Of course it would be awesome to have 1v2, 3v4, 5v6
Last year we had that, and the Stanford-Okie State game was great
One thing I have to add is expecting things to "stay as they are now" is ignoring history. College football has a way of figuring itself out, and going 12-0, 13-0 is very, very hard, as Bama learned yesterday.
Oregon's 3 week season features 3 teams that are all worse than them, but fatigue/focus could become a downfall
KSU plays Texas, and Texas at their best can match up with KSU. Not saying it will happen but it could
ND still has USC, and of course that could be their downfall.
In truth, I think there will only be one undefeated team, and the UGA/Bama winner will backdoor it's way in
Clemson vs bama would be a good game imo

Well, my OP was a hypothetical and really wasn't about the championship game. If we don't get in, so be it. Win or you're gambling, IMO. Was just pontificating about the great matchups that could be had outside the championship game, but won't be happening.
Think about how great a playoff would be this year of the top 8 teams...
(using Ap poll so we can include my Buckeyes)
lsu at oregon
florida at kansas state
Ohio State at notre dame (I'll take that game)
georgia at alabama
I love the holiday season
