Since every team in the NCAA has at least one loss but them. They should get to share the National Championship.

They shouldn't have to share squat. Until there's a playoff system for them to lose in they're the best team in the country. Just look at their record, it's proof.

As stated in another thread, it would be hilarious of the AP voted BSU #1.

They won't....the only way they'd split is if the other team was a name big conference team.

You'll have to come up with something better than that... which doesn't include the phrase "you can only play the teams on your schedule".

Undefeated is undefeated. They are the only undefeated team in the country. Regardless of schedule that is not an easy task for any team.

Get a playoff and put them up against Florida. The BCS is ridiculous and we all know it. Until the university presidents begin to understand this, it will always be a joke.

Hitler was a Christian too, wasn't he guy? So...great point and STFU.

And Boise St beat OU, don't confuse that with Florida or USC or Ohio State. Oregon racked up 500 yards on OU, and Stoops needed a 4th and 1 at his own 20 to win at A$M. We also barely escaped OSU.

I think its funny how Florida fans were crying that OSU fans weren't giving them no respect. Now Florida fans won't give Boise St. any respect. If they think there school is so much more superior then a littl ole Idaho school, then why not put their money where there mouth is.

I really wish there was a playoff, and if anything, BSU/UF would be a fun game to watch. Had Oklahoma not been screwed by the refs against Oregon, they would have been in the NC talk (and Oregon would have no quality wins, so USC wouldn't have jumped 7 spots when they beat them).

At the moment, LSU, BSU, USC, and even Wisconsin and Louisville would all like UF fans to put their money where their mouth is, but with the current system I think they had the right two teams playing tonight, so they're all SOL.

Boise State, BCS come out legit


The little guys huddled up and called the plays with the imagination of a kid scratching out the diagrams in the sand on a playground.

The hook and ladder -- a forward pass plus a lateral -- was something Knute Rockne might have conjured up nearly a century ago at Notre Dame. And then the takeoff on the ancient Statue of Liberty play to win the Fiesta Bowl in overtime and stun a nation of hungover college football TV addicts.

All the ancient gimmicks except the flying wedge.

Boise State proved it was legitimate. Geographically isolated Boise State, from what is now referred to as a mid-major conference, with a wannabe program. And with the verve and audacity to knock off one of America's most prominent football powers in a bowl game.

A BCS bowl game to boot.

It was fun to watch, more fun than watching Michigan roll over and succumb to Southern California earlier on New Year's Day in the Rose Bowl.

And so much more imaginative than Mike Hart over left guard, Mike Hart over right guard, sack, punt.

So odd.

Boise State, out of Idaho, proved it belonged in college football's upper echelon with its 13-0 record.

And Michigan proved again that it was the second-place team in an inferior conference. Lloyd Carr's bashers are out again with their whips. But Michigan's undoing was not its unimaginative offense. It was the simple fact that Southern California played the Rose Bowl with superior personnel, with better football players, plus more sizzle.

The Tiny Ten Football Conference was back in flower, overrated as the football representatives of Middle America, basically creamed in the intersectional bowl games.

Only Ohio State can now rescue the Big Ten from the scoffers across the country by whipping Florida in Monday night's national championship game. And what once seemed destined to be a rout in the BCS finale in Arizona could become a genuinely competitive football game.

On the day that Boise State became legitimate as a qualified football power, Michigan legitimized the BCS.

A month ago the Michigan blues engaged in the traditional whining and wailing and griping when Florida vaulted from No. 4 in the standings to qualify to combat Ohio State for the national championship. It was explained that America did not wish for Ohio State to play Michigan in a rematch for the championship. The gripe was that Florida's leapfrog jump over Michigan, then No. 3, was unfair and dishonest and undeserved.

I joined the protesters. I believed in logic -- that when No. 2 Southern California went poof against UCLA, that No. 3 Michigan deserved be elevated to play in the championship game, not the No. 4 team.

My apologies!

Again, I had been blinded by Michigan's unexpectedly flawless season, unbeaten until it played Ohio State -- then beaten by the slim margin of three points.

But on New Year's Day there was the realization that Michigan never should be been voted to such a lofty spot as No. 2 in the polls. Nor should Michigan have ever been ranked as high as No. 3.

It was fluff -- the product of an early-season rout of Notre Dame in South Bend.

Notre Dame, so haughty and so respected before the season that it was considered a championship contender! Mighty Notre Dame, embarrassed victim of Louisiana State in the Sugar Bowl two days after Michigan's pratfall to Southern California.

Another example of football as played in the Midwest vis--vis the Southeast.

The BCS, with all the ridicule, with all its problems, with its convoluted selection process, now has come out as legitimate with Ohio State vs. Florida. Two conference champions in a climactic finale.

But the BCS needs a smidgen of fine tuning.

The rules should be -- must be -- amended: no second-place teams allowed in the national championship game. Only conference champions and/or specially qualified independents should be selected to participate in the ultimate BCS game. Thus, if Notre Dame ever regains its stature it would be eligible.

Michigan, as runner up in the Big Ten, never should have received consideration. Even before it was exposed in the Rose Bowl debacle.

But the muck mucks who control the NCAA and the BCS stubbornly refuse to exercise common sense. So college football ends every season with controversy and griping by delusional alumni and their fellow travelers.

No imagination.

Hurrah for Boise State!

Associated Press
Undefeated Boise State Stands Alone
By RALPH D. RUSSO 01.09.07, 1:54 AM ET



Boise State has something not even the national champions can claim - an undefeated record. The Broncos finished the season as Division I-A's only unbeaten team after No. 2 Florida upset No. 1 Ohio State 41-14 Monday night in the BCS national championship game.

"Let's go play 'em next week," Florida coach Urban Meyer said with a laugh about Boise State. "I love Boise State, but I wouldn't want to do that. We're done."

Boise State finished No. 5 in the final, post-bowl Associated Press poll, with one first-place vote.

A week before the Gators' gadgetry had the Buckeyes spinning at University of Phoenix Stadium, Boise State opened up its bag of tricks and put on the bowl season's best show on the very same field.

The Broncos used a hook-and-ladder to score the tying touchdown, a Statue of Liberty play to score the decisive 2-point conversion, and the Broncos beat Oklahoma 43-42 in overtime to become America's favorite underdog on New Year's Day.

Some questioned whether the Western Athletic Conference champions even belonged in the Bowl Championship Series with the winners of the Big 12. But by the time quarterback Jared Zabransky, running back Ian Johnson and the rest of the Broncos were done with the Sooners, Boise State had become college football's version of George Mason, the mid-major that made the NCAA basketball Final Four last year.

And if the Broncos' wild Fiesta Bowl victory wasn't enough to win over most football fans outside of Oklahoma, then surely Johnson's proposal to his girlfriend on the field right after scoring the winning points was.

Some of the Broncos were looking for more after the Fiesta Bowl.

"We went 13-0 and beat everyone on our schedule," Zabransky said. "We deserve a chance at the national title."

Boise State coach Chris Peterson, who'd never asked for more than a chance to simply play in one of the big-dollar bowl games, wouldn't bite when asked about the national title after the Fiesta.

"Hey, we don't worry about that," Petersen said. "We just go and play who they tell us to play. The pollsters vote how they want to vote. We're just happy to control what we can control."

Boise State was the second team from outside the big six conferences (Big Ten, Pac-10, Atlantic Coast Conference, Big East and Big 12) to play in the BCS, joining Urban Meyer's 2004 Utah team.

The Broncos were the first to make it under the BCS's new five-game format, put in place to give teams from conferences such as the WAC and Mountain West better access to college football's marquee games.

The Broncos needed to finish 12th or better to automatically qualify for the BCS and finished eighth in the standings.

Florida's got the national championship, but no team in Division I-A has a better record than the Broncos.

"There's only one way to figure out who the better team is and that's go play the game," Meyer said.

The whole thing is retarded. AFter what I saw tonight, Florida would have killed Boise St. If the idiot presidents would allow a damn playoff these problems would just go away.

I was happy to see at least one writer gave them a number 1 vote though.

Dan, I know you are happy and congrats on the championship.

But if the two were to play, Boise State would be underdogs just like you were against OSU and they were against OU. Do you think that they would come out and at least play a respectacle game against the gators?
