Simple question. I want a debate, about why they should or shouldn't. There's a solid chance that they go undefeated again. How many years in a row can they be ignored?

I hope they go undefeated this year and don't make it to the BCS title game. I hope a couple of other teams do it too.

Anything to get rid of the system we have now and replace it with a playoff.

It really depends on what other teams do. I'd still put a 1 loss team from the Big Ten, Big XII or SEC in over them. And while their win over VT last night was nice, it wasn't the convincing win they needed.

Boise St getting the shaft isn't going to get us any closer to a playoff. We need to put that notion to rest right now.

I'm not sure if the first game of the year qualifies them for the "big" win. Now had they beat Va Tech maybe the 3rd or 4th game of the season, that would be a different story. If they run the table and there are not two other undefeated teams from one of the big conferences, let em play for the championship and see what happens. At least they won without any trick plays. If they get drubbed in the Natl Champ, then we won't have to hear about the cinderellas every year.

Two undefeateds from majors get in first. Other than that, Boise gets in.

I mean, they beat VT who was ranked 10. They are dominant up front. Their line on both sides were relentless against VT.

They beat Oregon last year and the beat #3 ranked TCU last year in the bowl game.

It all depends on how other teams do. If Alabama and Texas are still undefeated, or Ohio State and another marquee team is, then I would give them the nod. What Boise has done is great, and that was a great win over Virginia Tech, but I really don't consider the Hokies a top tier team year after year.

And despite all of that, they blew a 17 pt lead, trailed for a lot of the second half, and got bailed out from a ticky-tack call on their final drive to win by 3 pts.

What would probably be better, is if they go undefeated, get ranked in the top two, and get into the championship game say against Alabama. And have another team say like Texas be undefeated, and not get in. Then things might change. Not if Boise gets snubbed again.

If Ohio State goes undefeated except for their ONE quality opponent (like most years) and gets in over an undefeated Boise St, the system is a sham.


(although, at least this year they are playing Miami in the non-con)

How did they get bailed out? They had picked up the first down already and were moving the ball at will at that point. All the 15 yard penalty did was give VT more time after BSU scored a couple of plays later.

Every fucking year. Man I really hope Oregon State takes these smurfs out. I understand that the easy scheduling isn't their fault, but it still has to matter. If they had come out and proven they were head and shoulders better than VT it would be different, but to squeeze out a victory with the help of a ticky tack call in your only game against a ranked opponent isn't showing you deserve to be there IMO.

Would Nebraska deserve a shot if they run the table? They only play 1 ranked team, Texas.

Would Oregon deserve a shot if they run the table? They only play two ranked teams, the highest being #16 USC.

Every time Boise plays a highly ranked team they've demonstrated they belong in the game.

Nebraska would also play the a team in the Big XII Championship, and that team would be ranked.

Oregon plays (currently) three ranked teams (Stanford, USC, Arizona).

They are ranked 3rd right now. It will only take a loss from Bama or Ohio State to put them in the drivers seat.

It's been proven, this team can hang with anybody. They have the talent. A good college QB. A great system, and a mauling offensive line. These guys can play against any team and even if they lose, they won't get blown out.

It would be too simple just to do something like this.

8-Team BCS playoff tourney, the BCS computers determine the rankings just like they do now. Now there are going to be arguments about teams ranked 8,9,10, which last team to make it in, who's in and who's out etc, but there's always going to be that argument, just like there is in Men's hoops w/ bubble teams etc. The point is really, there are about a handful of teams that should be in the National Title picture. Yes sometimes it's clear cut on who's 1 and 2, but a lot of times that's not the case. They also need to do away w/ conf title games. Big12 has a conf champ game, Big Ten does not, and confs that do have title games, just get another game/another chance to blow it. I think either every conf should have a title game, or every conf should do w/o it.

Ranked teams 1-8 would play in the BCS Bowl Sites for the 1st rd, and the sites/matchups would rotate, so one site wouldn't always get the #1 seed game.
For Example:

2011
Rose Bowl (1 vs 8)
Orange Bowl (2 vs 7)
Fiesta Bowl (3 vs 6)
Sugar Bowl (4 vs 5)
** Like I said the matchups would rotate bowl sites, so the next season the Rose Bowl wouldn't have the #1 seeded game, and the winner's could still be called "Rose Bowl Champs" etc.

Next rd, "Final 4" teams would be played at the BCS Title game site, like how it is w/ NCAA hoops, as well as the final BCS National Title game would be played here as well. I know this would extend Bowl season about a week, but they space it out too long already, a lot of teams don't play for almost a month from their last reg season game, til Bowl season, they need to change that.

Then the teams ranked 9-10 would play in the Cotton Bowl. Since it's not a true BCS bowl game anyway, this would IMO make sense since it's the best next bowl game.

I'll say the same thing for Boise St as TCU (and I'm a TCU fan), IF there are undefeated teams from the BCS conferences, then TCU or Boise don't go to the national championship. If there's not, then the debate begins. Boise's schedule is complete garbage. TCU's is mediocre to poor depending on how Utah and BYU do.

Ok, yes the WAC isn't legit, but people forget that Fresno St (who just beat Cincy) and Nevada (who they play in Reno this year) are decent teams. There is a good chance Boise could lose either one of those games.

If they go undefeated, they should be given a shot...if they get blown out or win, at least the debate over this will finally be over, and we will have an example to fall back on lol

You can't put them in there considering that cake conference schedule they have. It would take 4 top 25 teams in the pre-con to come close to what most top schools play in a year.

Undefeated is undefeated. If there are only two undefeated teams then those two get in the championship game. Anything less and the system is fixed. Would you actually settle for two one loss teams from majors and leave them out of it if they are undefeated?

Oh yeah, that crap conference that won 2 BCS games last year. What on earth was he thinking putting them in there? They're so slow they probably would never reach the stadium, right?

I have no problem with BSU--wait, actually I do, I hate their blue field and the way the media adores them. But that's besides the point, which is that they simply do not deserve to play in the national title over a 1 loss school from a major conference. The fact that there's such a heated debate about this one week into the season demonstrates how absurd their schedule is.

Would Nebraska deserve a shot if they run the table? They only play 1 ranked team, Texas.

Would Oregon deserve a shot if they run the table? They only play two ranked teams, the highest being #16 USC.

Every time Boise plays a highly ranked team they've demonstrated they belong in the game.

Evens still, you can't put teams like San Jose State and Utah State on the same level as the middle-of-the-pack and bottom dwellers in major conferences.

VT might turn out to be bad, anyway.

TCU and Utah have gotten several good non cons lined up. When you are a good team in a bad conference you don't get to ask for a cupcake payout, that's why they don't get games.

Really bad teams can get upwards of 800 thousand dollars for a game, however they are a sure win. No AD in the country is going to pay nearly a million dollars to possibly watch his team get beat.

When your team is good lower your price, TCU and Utah have done this to get games.

If you want to compare, Bama beat VT (who was ranked #7 at the time) in last season's first game by double-digits. Alabama then went on to beat 4 additional ranked teams prior to beating their 6th ranked team of the season in the BCSNC game.

Are you high? In the last 3 years they beat OK, Oregon, TCU and now VT. All top 15 or better ranked at the time. The only way they should not go to the big game is if they lose or OH St and Alabama are undefeated and that's it. The BCS put them at 3. That's too high to drop them unless they lose.

A one loss Big 12 team over undefeated Boise? They would beat any big 12 team as it is right now.

Until there is a playoff, there isnt a true national champion, just a BCS champion....

I hate to see people discredit Boise. V-Tech didn't underestimate them IMO. They came out and took it to VT at the line of scrimmage and got a break and a huge play because they were getting huge push at the line. Boise was kicking their ass physically. Then to VT's credit they got it together and actually showed something. Plus it was pretty much a home game for VT, and Boise still calmly marched down the field for the win when it mattered. Smooth and composed as could be after it looked like VT had gotten away. I think it was a great win. I think by the end of the year some team like Bama will have fought through enough tough games to win the title, but Boise State is legit regardless.

If you watched the game, you would have seen that VA Tech basically farted away the first 17 points in the game.

A botched handoff on the first drive? A blocked punt because two guys forget to block a guy coming in? A kickoff out of bounds?

VA Tech giftwrapped that game. And yet the game came down to the final drive.

Given that Boise State looked well prepared and mistake-free, I have to question whether that game has a totally different outcome if they played in week 5 instead of week 1.

The fumble was a big break, but that block was beautiful. Boise was driving Taylor nuts in the beginning. I thought the kid was going to try to "Vick" it every play for awhile there. He showed some composure and they got the game plan together. Give Tech credit for not getting killed. I think Boise can do a little better myself.

Sure, let them into the championship game. Let's see if they are for real. Their cupcake schedule makes it impossible to tell. It would be reall interesting to see Boise and Bama swap schedules for a season. I'm guessing Boise loses more games and players in a single season than they have in a long time while Bama sends boys from opposing teams home crying to their mothers.

TCU and Utah are getting games, if your team is actually good you don't get cupcake payout.

What great football games are Utah and TCU getting that Boise State isn't?

The reason Boise State asks for a higher payout is because A.) they can and B.) the bigger programs don't want to schedule a home-and-home because they're afraid to go to Boise and lose, so Boise has every right in the world to ask for more money for a one off road game.

They actually were near an agreement for a home-and-home for Ohio State to start in 2012, but Ohio State wanted to push its visit to Boise back to 2017 and they'd have probably found a way to get out of that game before it happened. It's a lose-lose situation for Boise. I would think as a "USC fan" you might understand this, but I guess not.

At this point, they're the third-ranked team in the country and a lock for the BCS if they win out. They don't have to pretend to be some lowly mid-major that has to cowtow to the demands of the traditional powerhouses anymore.

Not over a 1-loss SEC, Big 12, or Big Ten team. Unless the BIG EAST or ACC proves a whole hell of a lot this year, then I wouldn't have a problem with Boise going.

If it comes down to it like this

Alabama 11-1
Iowa 11-1
Ohio State 11-1
Nebraska 11-1
Texas 11-1

Then no way in hell Boise State deserves a shot. They might be as good as those teams, and it's not their fault, but they still get essentially 9 free games where they might as well be playing the Kansas School of the Blind.

If you watched the game, you would have seen that VA Tech basically farted away the first 17 points in the game.

Given that Boise State looked well prepared and mistake-free, I have to question whether that game has a totally different outcome if they played in week 5 instead of week 1.

Yeah those two turnovers and 11 penalties by BSU was definitely "mistake-free". Face it...both teams made mistakes. You can rationalize it all you want to fit your agenda but the fact of the matter is they both had their share of mistakes (running into kicker giving VA Tech a TD ring any bells) and the better team won.

I know you hate BSU for no reason simply because they generally play lesser competition but it doesn't take away from this victory.

Every ****ing year. Man I really hope Oregon State takes these smurfs out. I understand that the easy scheduling isn't their fault, but it still has to matter. If they had come out and proven they were head and shoulders better than VT it would be different, but to squeeze out a victory with the help of a ticky tack call in your only game against a ranked opponent isn't showing you deserve to be there IMO.

What great football games are Utah and TCU getting that Boise State isn't?

The reason Boise State asks for a higher payout is because A.) they can and B.) the bigger programs don't want to schedule a home-and-home because they're afraid to go to Boise and lose, so Boise has every right in the world to ask for more money for a one off road game.

They actually were near an agreement for a home-and-home for Ohio State to start in 2012, but Ohio State wanted to push its visit to Boise back to 2017 and they'd have probably found a way to get out of that game before it happened. It's a lose-lose situation for Boise. I would think as a "USC fan" you might understand this, but I guess not.

At this point, they're the third-ranked team in the country and a lock for the BCS if they win out. They don't have to pretend to be some lowly mid-major that has to cowtow to the demands of the traditional powerhouses anymore.

Bullshit.

Of course, but Boise in turn shouldn't just bend over to the demands of the big programs because of that. Boise's attitude is, if you'd like to come play us at our house after we come to you, then great. If not, you're going to have to pay us a little more. I don't see what's wrong with that. They've earned the right to ask for it.

Given that Boise State looked well prepared and mistake-free, Hardly. BSU had a costly turnover when they were driving that VT capitalized on. Also, the stupid roughing the kicker penalty on the FG miss that gave VT a 1st down and then a TD on the next play. Lets not pretend VT giftwrapped this game for BSU. VT got their ass handed to them in the 1st. VT got their shit together and made a game of it. Both teams made their fair share of mistakes. It was a great game. I enjoyed it.

It completely baffles me how college football fans cannot respect a small school having national success. Hell, if BSU plays Ohio St. for the NC, I may root for BSU.

Look, MORE THAN HALF of the SEC is made up of teams like Ole Miss. I'm an Arkansas fan, but when people talk about how tough the SEC is "week in and week out", it's because of teams like Ole Miss..who has won the last two Cotton Bowl's.

Oregon State is a perennial top 25 team and Coravallis is a hell of a tough place for anyone to go play.

I don't hate BSU. You're right, though. I did forget about BSU mistakes. But I still stick to the original point that Va Tech looked sloppy early on and it wasn't due to BSU pressure. It was because they looked cold, which you come to expect in the first game of the season. Again, I have to ask if the outcome would be different if the two squared off against each other in midseason as opposed to the first, nerve-wracking game of the year.

And I think if BSU wins out, they deserve to go to the BCS title game, but then again, they don't. It's a fault of the most retarded sports system in the world and unfortunately, somebody's going to get screwed.

VT is one of 2 teams that has finished with 10 wins or more the last 6 seasons. The other being Texas.

That doesn't matter, BSU basically played Iowa State on a neutral site in Idaho.

VT deserves some credit here too, second year in a row they've opened with a top 5 team. They should be rewarded for not scheduling the local high school in the first week.

Are you high? In the last 3 years they beat OK, Oregon, TCU and now VT. All top 15 or better ranked at the time. The only way they should not go to the big game is if they lose or OH St and Alabama are undefeated and that's it. The BCS put them at 3. That's too high to drop them unless they lose.

A one loss Big 12 team over undefeated Boise? They would beat any big 12 team as it is right now.
Sure, they may be able to beat any one Big XII team, but can they beat as many as 9 of them? Because that's what another Big XII team would have to do in order to remain undefeated. There's a big difference between playing a one or two game season and a 8 or 9 game season. That's what so many of you that are riding Boise State's jock can't seem to comprehend.

So it's definitely not enough to beat really good teams....you must be several times better than them.


Unless of course you're Florida/Texas/Alabama. If they were to beat VA Tech by 3 it would be an excellent win showing how great their team is.
No, it's not enough when you only have 1 real opponent. You need to leave no doubt, and they didn't AFAIC. Plus we don't even know if VT is a 'really good team' yet anyway. If they drop 2 or 3 more games then last night's win means even less.

And Florida/Texas/Alabama have no relevance to this conversation, I have no idea why you brought them up.

You play who is put in front of you. Boise State has done that and has beat everyone. They've had at least 5 or 6 "they better win this game if they want to be taken seriously" games over the last few years and have won all of them. Playing a stronger schedule doesn't give you any sort of preferential treatment in the NFL, so why should it in college?

Let's not also act like everyone in the Big 12 is Texas either. That's the problem with this argument, is you'll have dolts like Vailpass who will laugh at Boise State playing a team like Ole Miss, but then use Ole Miss in his argument for why the SEC or Big 12 is so tough. In the Big 12 on a year in, year out basis you have Texas and Oklahoma and after that it's kind of up in the air. Now yes, the rest of those teams are better than the teams Boise State faces in their conference, but it's not the grueling grind some people make it out to be either.

The NFL's schedules are far more balanced, so that's a retarded comparison to make. And for umpteenth ****ing time, I'm going to favor the team that plays 5 or 6 tough games every year over a team that plays 5 or 6 tough games over the course of several years.

Sure they rotate, but on a season-by-season basis, it could certainly be seen as unfair. If you had two teams who finish 9-7 and one team's non-divisional games were against the NFC East and the others were against the NFC West and the team who played the NFC West ended up making the playoffs, you don't hear much "Well we played a tougher schedule damnit, we deserve to be in the playoffs!"

Yes, the difficulty of NFL schedules do vary from year to year, but there is never the kind of discrepancy we're talking about here. Apples to oranges.

And I don't think Boise St is being punished, if they get a bid to a BCS game that's a significant reward for a small school. And it is their own fault to some degree, if they were good at any other sports they could've gotten into the PAC 10.

Going undefeated in a cupcake conference is arguably easier than only having 1 loss in a really tough conference.

And I doubt people would complain if BSU was undefeated and got the #3 or #4 seed. The issue is just placing them in the National Championship game without consistently proving they can match up to top competition later in the season.

The only goal of a playoff should be to remove most doubt about who should be #1 or #2. I've rarely heard of anybody complain about a #5 seed not being #2.

A team's on-field performance during the regular season is the principal factor in determining its position in the BCS standings. The formula consists of three components, each weighted equally: the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Harris Interactive College Football Poll and an average of six computer rankings. The Bowl Championship Series is designed to ensure that the two top-rated teams in the country meet in the national championship game.

Still waiting to hear what's so bad about Oregon State and Ole Miss, but I'm guessing you're not smart enough to have any logical answer. Should Boise State make trips to Ohio State, Texas and USC every year to please you?

Look at hillbilly boy throwing out the "not smart enough" line. This is the guy who says things like "lest we not forget" (have someone from north of the MasonDixon explain the concept of double negatives to you).

I don't expect Boise to plan their schedule around me but if they could get their hayseed supporters to quit posting on Chiefs Planet that would be nice.

A team's on-field performance during the regular season is the principal factor in determining its position in the BCS standings. The formula consists of three components, each weighted equally: the USA Today Coaches Poll, the Harris Interactive College Football Poll and an average of six computer rankings. The Bowl Championship Series is designed to ensure that the two top-rated teams in the country meet in the national championship game.

Wish they weighed SOS more heavily, like they used to.

Its just I find it funny that people are bashing Boise St for being in a shitty conference..

Yet, people cant beat them, the big boys are scared of them and when they go to a BCS bowl. They win.

I dont have a dog in the fight, Shit KU cant even beat NDSU right now. But IF everyone wants to protect College Football from the likes of Boise St. Then the traditional powers are going to have to schedule up Boise St on a home and home. Start beating them down and send them on their merry way.

Until then... its cute watching everyone scurry away like cockroaches when Boise St flips on the light switch....

The worst thing about the BCS is how much it favors teams who start the season ranked highly. I don't give two shits about Kansas, but I think back to 2007 when Kansas finished 11-1, but an 2-loss LSU team made the BCS title game over them because Kansas kind of came out of nowhere that season and had an uphill climb in the rankings.

I feel like if a team like say, Indiana, had a huge year this season and went 12-0 or 11-1, they'd still have no possible chance of jumping the Florida-Ohio State-Texas caliber teams, even if those teams finished with the same record, or had one more loss than Alabama. It's just a flawed system.

Flying to Boise St and playing an OOC game has nothing to do with being "scared" and everything to do with $$. Why would Florida give up a full 90,000+ capacity stadium to fly all the way to Boise Idaho to get a share of a 32,000 seat stadium? It makes zero economic sense. That's not even considering the fact that Florida's schedule leaves nothing to prove.

For last year - all 5 undefeated teams would get in the playoff, plus Florida, and then the BCS would determine which of the six 2-loss teams would get in.

For 2007, same thing - the three teams with 1 loss or less get in and the BCS determines which of the 2-loss teams round out the final 8.

Obviously, that would still leave fans of some teams pissed, but in the end you're letting 8 teams get a shot at the national champonship, which is A LOT more fair than picking two teams to play for the title and shutting out the other undefeated teams or other teams that have the same record.

Um no, it's the exact opposite. I said I think Ole Miss is a tough team and they've had two straight seasons that ended in a Cotton Bowl victory to prove it. Boise State going to play in Oxford is an incredibly tough game.

He actually said that earlier in this thread. "Lest we not forget". Arkansas FTW!

Sorry, I was "under stress"...wasn't that your excuse for whatever retarded drivel you posted a couple of pages back?

If both of these teams ran the table......which would deserve a shot at the NC?

Team A:

vs Purdue
vs Michigan
@Michigan State
vs #25 Stanford
@Boston College
vs Pittsburgh
vs Western Michigan
vs Navy*
vs Tulsa
vs #20 Utah
vs Army*
@#16 USC

Team B:

vs #10 Virginia Tech
@Wyoming
vs Oregon State
@New Mexico State
vs Toledo
@San Jose State
vs Louisiana Tech
vs Hawaii
@Idaho
vs Fresno State
@Nevada
vs Utah State

If they both go undefeated, then they both "deserve a shot" at a National Title. That's why I want a playoff.

But yeah, as others have said, what does Notre Dame have to do with this? For one, they aren't going undefeated anyway and secondly, you're one to really question the fairness of it all considering that Notre Dame has the most ridiculously unfair contract with the BCS of anyone in college football.

Whatever two teams end up in the Division II Championship usually end up playing 15-16 game seasons, so I don't see why it would be such a hardship for the Division I programs.

IMO the best teams have won the Championship the past 5 years. I think the current system is extremely exciting, moreso than a playoff. Instead of gunning for a top-4, top-8, top-16 or top-whatever finish, you need to gun for a top-2 finish to get a title shot. It's fun watching games you otherwise wouldn't give a shit about to cheer for upsets and teams ranked ahead of you to lose. If it moves to a playoff that shit wont matter near as much. As long as you finish atop your conference, what happens elsewhere wont matter.

Find out for real? I don't think a playoff necessarily results in the best, true champion. Do you think the NCAA Tournament Champ is a true National Champion?

Even in the NFL a playoff doesn't guarantee a 'true' champion. Were the Giants the best team in the NFL when they won the Super Bowl? Not to me they weren't. The BCS takes into account a team's entire season and, in most years thus far, pits the two best teams against each other for the title.

Yes, I think the NCAA Tournament Champ is the real champion. Because that team beat every team in a playoff format that was presented to them by earning their right to play each other by process of elimination by defeat. The best team isn't defined by talent, it's defined by "team." That team played the best in crunch time, when it mattered most, so for that, they are the best. The other team is not. JMO.

What do you mean the Giants weren't true champions? Are you serious? If the Patriots were the best team, they should have beaten them. I would rather the Giants get to the Super Bowl because they beat legit playoff teams than OSU go to the national championship because they beat Michigan to win their division. And this is coming from an OSU fan.

The BCS is retarded. I don't know how anybody can defend it. If we're talking about baseball, where every team gets an equal chance to play every team about the same # of times, then fine. If we're even talking about football, where you have 3 divisions per conference and you have to win your conference, fine. But how can you justify a college football system where certain conferences have zero chance to make the title game, conferences have ENTIRELY different strength of schedules, and most teams in the top 10 have a similar record?

5 out of the last 6 BCS Championship games have resulted in blowouts. The National Championship game isn't even fun to watch anymore.

Come on, this is completely ridiculous. As a sports fan, you can't really believe this, can you? The only true way to determine a champion is to let the best teams play it out on the field. I don't want that to be decided by a computer.

The only year where, IMO, it's arguable is 2007 with LSU. Otherwise, there's no doubt in my mind that Texas, Florida ('06 and '08) and Alabama were the best teams.

I don't agree with this. In 2006, USC and Michigan were both playing excellent football and were as deserving of a shot at the National Title as Florida. IMO, USC was playing the best football of anyone at the end of the year.

In 2007, Oklahoma and USC had great football teams and both deserved a shot at a National Title as much as LSU did.

2008 was one of the worst years, IMO. Florida and Oklahoma played in the title game as a pair of 1-loss teams, but you had a handful of teams all playing excellent football at the end of the year. USC, Penn State and Texas were all 1-loss teams who deserved a shot at the National Title game just as much as Florida and Oklahoma. Plus you had UNDEFEATED Utah who pounded Alabama and would have certainly made some noise in a playoff. That was the one year, above all others, where I was just dying to see a playoff to let those teams duke it out.

Come on man, really?

2006: USC? Playing excellent football? By losing to two unranked teams, including UCLA the last game of the season? Yeah, give them a title shot! And Michigan? The team that didn't win their conference. Didn't they essentially have a playoff by losing to ohio state in their final game? Then they went on and lost to the 2-loss USC in the Rose Bowl. Yet you think USC & Michigan deserved title shots? ROFL

2008: It was either Texas or OU. That comes down to their own conference tiebreak scenarios. If there were super conferences like you all want then Texas wouldn't have made the playoff anyway as OU represented the conference. Penn State obviously didn't deserve a shot, losing to USC in the Rose Bowl. USC is the only team that has a potential argument that year. However, their resume (beating #5, #8, #21, #23) wasn't near as impressive as Florida's (beating #1, #1, #4, #6, #20 and #25).

Yet you think USC & Michigan deserved title shots? ROFL

2006 is admittedly a weaker one than the others I listed, but there is still an argument. USC did lose to UCLA, but one loss to an unranked team (Oregon State finished the season in the top 25) hasn't kept teams out of the BCS title game before. In 2007, LSU lost to two unranked teams and still made the title game.

I don't like the "they lost to a weaker team so they don't deserve to play for the title" argument either. New Orleans lost to the lowly 3-13 Tampa Bay Bucs last year, does that mean that some team with a similar record who beat Tampa last year deserved it over them? No, because the Saints fought through the playoffs, beat the best teams, and earned the championship. That's the only way to do it.

2008: It was either Texas or OU. That comes down to their own conference tiebreak scenarios. If there were super conferences like you all want then Texas wouldn't have made the playoff anyway as OU represented the conference.

In 2008 Texas BEAT Oklahoma and yet Oklahoma gets to play for the National Title even though they were both one loss teams? There's really no way to deny that Texas should have had a crack at a National Title that year.

Penn State obviously didn't deserve a shot, losing to USC in the Rose Bowl. USC is the only team that has a potential argument that year. However, their resume (beating #5, #8, #21, #23) wasn't near as impressive as Florida's (beating #1, #1, #4, #6, #20 and #25).

How can you honestly say that about Penn State and then say all the right teams have made it to the BCS Championship games? Just because Penn State lost to USC doesn't mean they didn't deserve a shot. That's like me saying that every team who has lost in the BCS Title game didn't deserve to be there, like Oklahoma in 08, because they lost. Losing to USC doesn't mean that Penn State couldn't have still defeated other teams and advanced to the second or third round of a playoff.

And your comparison with USC and Florida is exactly what's wrong with the system. You have two great football teams who are both deserving of a shot and you're reduced to nitpicking through their schedule and going through how high every opponent was ranked, or how much they beat that opponent by, to determine who is "better". It's completely ridiculous. I can't think of one college football fan (except apparently you?) that wouldn't have wanted to see USC vs. Florida or Texas vs. Florida or Utah vs. any of those teams.

maybe it should be JMU vs Boise St? Sucks that your only big game is against a team that lost to JMU at home.

Yeah that does blow. However I do have a a copy of the Fiesta Bowl a few years back if you'd like to borrow it.;)

That JMU vs. Vagina Tech game shoots a ginormous hole in BSU's claims to fame. Heck, they might move down in the poll this week.

doesn't mean you belong in this years championship. I don't need to be convinced that Bob Stoops can't get a team motivated to play a bowl game. Great win for you guys 3 years ago. Isn't it time to let it go?

It is hard to know what to make of it now. Look at that Alabama game and tell me those guys aren't nails. Boise is still a great team, but just how great?

Not a knock on OU, but the team that lost to Boise St. would get smothered by this years Alabama. They are solid all around.
