Down goes UM, down goes FSU...Could Boise State crash the party too?

    Haven't heard much about this at all, but:

    Utah won, finished undefeated, and looks like they will be no worse than 6th. However, Boise State finished undefeated, and was ranked 9th in the BCS going in to this week. 7th and 8th were Michigan and Florida State, who both lost, potentially moving them up to 7th. Sooooo, if Texas A&M beats Texas Thanksgiving weekend.....could we have 2 non-BCS teams finish in the top 6?

    Yup, and that would lock Cal out of the Rose.

    Even crazier possibility is that OU and AU could both miss BCS bowls (not just the Orange, but Sugar, Fiesta, and Rose) completely.

    I think that would by hysterical. Oh what I would give to see OU and AU only lose 1 game each (their respective championship games) and miss the BCS completely to Boise State and Utah.

    Each year a new "problem" with the BCS system is exposed, and I expect this year to be no different.

    Personally, if they insist on a system, I think last year's system did exactly what it was designed to do - and I don't care if USC fans bitched. The system was created in an effort to take the NC out of the hands of the pollsters. People are bitching cause the BCS didn't match the polls? Fuck them. If there was one tweak I think needed to be made it is this, you don't win your conference, you don't get a shot at the title - call it the Big XII rule (Nebby and OU made the NC game without a conf. title.) Otherwise, last years' BCS system did exactly what it was supposed to do - differentiate between 3 otherwise "tied" teams.

    Ultimately, I don't think the BCS is the answer at all, and would prefer a playoff or maybe a +1 system. Whatever playoff scenerio we get, it should be limited. I don't want the regular season to lose it's importance.

    I would love to see Boise v. Utah - the Broncos are tough, and I think they would punch the Utes in the mouth (what the heck is a Ute anyway?).

    I think Boise and Utah would get rolled by any other BCS team except Boston College, but who knows...I think if they play one another people are going to bitch even more next year about how they weren't given a shot

    Every year its the same story, their is always people complaining about the system, it amazes me that these university presidents, tv people and conferences cant meet on common ground and do what they need to do, and thats develop a playoff system with the bowls kept intact.

    Its the only way to end the bickering about the BCS.......basketball has a tourney...why not football?

    The Utes are a Native American tribe that inhabited the lands now know as Utah. A few years back Wisconsin dropped them from their schedule because of an idiotic, self-imposed rule that forbids them from playing teams outside the Big 10 with Indian names and mascots. What was really dumb about this situation is that the Utes have given permission and actually like being the namesake of the University.

    So what do the Badgers intend to do if they ever get to the BCS championship game and have to face somebody like Florida State? Forfeit?

    If OU and AU lost, would that make a rematch of Cal and USC for the title? :2004:

    here is a questions... teams from outside the bcs conferences get an automatic bid if they are in the top six. if oklahoma, texas, and auburn all lost.. cal and usc play for the title? but what if utah and boise state are both in the top 6? thats 3 at large teams "garaunteed" a bcs bowl...

    Down goes UM,

    I'll be in favor of a playoff, or a bowl game(s) + 1 when the games stop being a source of tourist dollars for the South. I want to see U Miami (and both of their fans) play a Big Ten team in the big house with the temp hovering just above freezing. I want to see USC come into the Shoe in January and try and win a national championship. We (and the rest of the Big Ten and Big 12) get screwed year in and year out by having to play an away game that determines our final standings. The 02 Fiesta Bowl was a rare exception, where the team from the Midwest enjoyed an advantage in fan support.
