Too many college presidents of mediocre 7-5 football teams love the current system. They can tell their alumni and fanbase "Hey, we had a great season and topped it off with a trip to the Papajohns.com Bowl."

If there's a playoff, all of those teams not involved don't have their sweet (and lucrative) December vacation/football game for their alumni.

You can still do those sh***y bowls on the side. They don't matter now, why should they matter then? It would be just like the NIT in basketball, but there's no reason you have to do away with them.

I say if you are in the top 12 or even 8 you are good enough to compete for the championship game. Every single season there will be griping and moaning until there is a playoff. It's not KU's fault that we got the better bowl, that's what the "experts" picked and that's how it is. MU fans really need to stop crying like a 6 year old who didn't get what he wanted for Christmas.

Wow, congrats. You are a good poll watcher. Doesn't mean you have a future in Vegas. I'm not saying KU will win. But I can't wait until I get to pull up some of these ridiculous predictions and shove back in your retarded face. :p

Well, I'm 1-for-1 so far compared to your 0-fah.

So good luck, kid.

Missouri did get screwed. But so did all the other top 10 teams that didn't get to play for the National Title. Everybody on here acts like they know which team is better than who. Let's be honest, none of you all have any idea. That's why they play the games..but you can only play one game for the title....and leave the rest out to play in some meaningless games. College Football really has some explaining to do.

It's absolutely hilarious... it happened last year, too. The second the schedule came out, everyone knew which teams were going to 'be destroyed'. People have incredibly short memories.

Like, how Mizzou beat Kansas a couple of weeks ago

actually K-State was ranked when we beat them in Manhatten off of their win against Texas. If you go by your justification MU sucks for only beating a crappy KU team by 6 points.

The credibility is there in Miami for the taking. If Kansas beats Virginia Tech, assuming you think VT is good, they can be a team that turned out to be for real, even though they benefited from a shady bowl selection. If they lose to Virginia Tech, all that anybody is going to say is "Guess we were right about them."

So... prove it.

Why does a third place team deserve it instead of a second place team? Why does a team who lost to the other deserve to get picked over them?

There's no argument. It's just business, that's fine. But there's no argument.

Totally sucks for MU. They beat KU, play a tougher schedule, and at the end of the day...end up going to a non-BCS bowl. This was probably the best case scenario for KU fans after the loss lost weekend. That said....

It is what it is guys. None of this shit matters. Cry me a river about why your team didn't get in or how much of a fraud KU may indeed be, but it's not changing anything and no one on the selection committee is listening to you right now.

I'm not mad at KU, as I've stated in other posts/threads. Although I won't accept KU fans using this to argue that it proves their superiority more than a head-to-head game on a neutral field does. :)

I am raging against the BCS and particularly the Orange Bowl cocksuckers. AFAIK, KU didn't put a gun to their head or blackmail them to pick them.

THE KU FOOTBALL TEAM SUPERIOR TO THE MU FOOTBALL TEAM!!!!!!!!










Our head coach is a portly and has a healthy appetite. The Orange Bowl committee saw a larger profit margin in potential food sales. So there.

This post was taken from the Tigger board admist their melt down after losing out on the BCS bowls... Just thought some of you might get a chuckle....


Perhaps the Orange Bowl wanted us as their choice, but took Kansas as the back-up choice. Perhaps Pinkel & Alden wanted to play in Dallas, Texas where we've got a serious recruiting pipeline underway, where we can easily get lot of our fans to, where lots of our current recruits and their families can see us play, where Chase Daniel will get incredible local publicity as a hometown hero, where we get to play a name opponent that we most likely can handle, and where we can still play on New Year's day as the first game out of the gate. Other than the Orange Bowl having a bit more prestige as a BCS bowl, we will get more mileage out of the Cotton Bowl. That's why I pose the possibility that the Cotton is what Pinkel wanted.




Remember before the BCS show at 7:00 started it was rumored here that MU was accepting the Cotton Bowl. If true....................................QUIT UR ****IN BITCHIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I found that it's about $17 million for the Orange and $3 million for the Cotton... but those are 'conference payouts'.

I saw one article that said a team got about $1 million of the $3 million for the Cotton Bowl last year, and the conference split the rest. Would it be the same split for all bowls?

I admit that I have never followed recruiting much, basketball or football. I'm just telling what I read (I think on Rivals a couple months ago) suggested that a couple of Florida recruits were interested. Nothing more, nothing less. I will tell you one thing that I know.

SC pulled Mike Williams and Keith Rivers out of there and I'd tell you that SC very lightly recruits Florida. To act like KU recruits Florida because they have a story up about 1 player that likely won't commit to them and spin that like "oh you don't know what you are talking about" is frankly comical.

Uhh..Kansas has exactly 0 commits from Florida.....yes there is a nice story on there that they are looking at a player from down there but odds are he won't go to KU.

SC pulled Mike Williams and Keith Rivers out of there and I'd tell you that SC very lightly recruits Florida. To act like KU recruits Florida because they have a story up about 1 player that likely won't commit to them and spin that like "oh you don't know what you are talking about" is frankly comical.

By the way Jeff Brinson is a 3 star recruit....
Can you say PIPELINE?

Georgia didn't win the conference or their division. They shouldn't be playing for the NC.
I know that by the "rules" they shouldn't be playing for the NC but, IMO, they would beat OSU and LSU.

Wait what.....KU doesn't recruit Florida and probably shouldn't......there's 3 huge schools there..not to mention the UCF's and USF's the whole SEC recruits that state and even SC will go down there for players...

Competing in that state isn't a good idea unless you have major pull.

That's not even mentioning Illinois, WVU, Rutgers and USCe (with Spurrier) which all get quite a few Florida players each year.

The statement was "nobody" was interested. KU has to recruit nationally, we don't have enough in-state recruits, and those we have we have to split with K-State. We focus on OK and TX, but that doesn't mean we can't go elsewhere. Why are you in such a tizzy? Is it because we're doing so well with three star recruits compared to your five and four stars? I didn't claim a pipeline to FL, I'm just responding to the "noboby" comment. By all means, go to a Trojan board, you really shouldn't be sullying yourself with the likes of us.

What? I wish the Rose Bowl had taken KU I WISH, it would have been a rape of brutal proportion.....

I'm sorry KU is not on the level of SC or Florida or any of those teams...

And you'd trade your class for ours in a heartbeat.

I didn't say I wouldn't, I'm just wondering why you're so nervous about the whole thing, like you're on the USC staff or something. I don't go to other school's boards comparing basketball recruits, telling them their program sucks and will never be on the elite level of KU, but for some reason, you feel the need to do so. I don't care if we're not "on the level" of those schools. This was supposed to be an 8-4 season at best, I'm thrilled where we are. I wish KU would have gotten to play USC as well. Hell, I probably would've gone to the game. By the way, I saw how you "brutally raped" big bad UCLA as well. You are all that (whatever that means by proxy of the team you chose to root for), I bow to your superior football-ness. The only thing I know right now, is that in the sport we actually did get to go head to head, beat you at your place.

You said nothing about top Florida recruits. Your exact words were:


I called you out on that ridiculous statement.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were picking nits and arguing semantics. My mistake. :whackit:

Yes, Lzen, I'm sure that if some kid from Florida gets rejected by every team in Florida, the SEC and the ACC, but Kansas offers him a scholarship, he'll happily take it.

Feel better now?

:rolleyes:
