    If it didn't happen last year with OSU/Michigan, it's never happening. Add in the Nebraska mess from several years ago, and I doubt you'll see a team that didn't win its conference/last game playing for the title ever again, either. You would probably see either USC, LSU, Oklahoma, or Georgia in the game.

    Boy I have to say I actually have come to like the BCS, I hated with a passion the old system of conference champs being locked into bowl games.

    The Hawaii-Boise State has been very entertaining. I love watching WAC football, especially Hawaii. Hawaii has yet to the run the ball all night and we're in the 4th quarter. Not once with the RB. Colt Brennan has throw for 456 yards and 5 TD's through 3 quarters. Hawaii should get a BCS bowl bid IMO if they hang on to beat Boise State tonight and then beat Washington next Saturday.

    If I were a highly rated QB or WR I would love to play for Hawaii. June Junes is a great coach, they throw the ball 70 times a game, and Hawaii has to be the most beautiful place in the US.

    The BCS runs through Kansas City this year. Who woulda thunk it?

    Re: BCS 2007 Discussion Thread

    I was in Columbus yesterday - yeah, my wife talked me into taking her shopping/out to eat - and we were at the Polaris mall. I could see I wasn't the only husband dragged into it either. As the women were hitting the sales, men were huddled around every TV set they could find watching the LSU-Arkansas game.

    I picked Arkansas to win this game simply because LSU's defense is simply terrible. When they gave up 450+ total yards to Ol' Miss, right then and there I knew this was not a #1 team. They were "chompin' at their bits", hoping and praying for an OSU loss.

    What a screwy year this has been. When you make #1, somehow you find a way to play like #2 (if you know what I mean). Being "crowned" #1 is almost like being cursed.

    And why is this loss kinda sweet for me? Nothing against LSU, the SEC, our their fans. I think they are the better conference right now. But when OSU was #1, all I heard from ESPN and all the "experts", was how they didn't deserve to be there, and that somehow LSU was the "true" #1.

    No team with two losses has ever played in the national title game; but again, what a topsy turvy year this has been.

    Who should be in the NC game? Heck I don't know! Flip a coin. Whichever team reaches No. 1, it'll be the fourth top-ranked team in this season of instability. The last season with four No. 1s was 1997. Right now, IMO, it should be WVU and the winner of today's Kansas-Missouri game. But if the winner of that game gets beat next week by OKlahoma, then isn't the pretty obvious choice then OSU?

    And what happens if Connecticut somehow happens to beat WVU? On paper one could say it ain't gonna happen - I think the Huskies are going to have a hard time with QB White and the option-attack. Huskie coach Edsall plays a conservative approach (Committed to the run, pass efficiency, no turnovers). They aren't flashy. It SHOULD be an easy win for the Mountaineers at home. I said SHOULD.

    That lone OSU loss to Illinois stings even more right now. Damn!

    Can Oklahoma do it again? They beat Missouri in October 41-31.

    All I know is, that as a Buckeye fan, on Dec 1st I'm gonna take the "S" out of OSU.....







    I don't think WVU, at home, is going to have a bit of trouble with Pitt next week.

    Yes, the one positive concerning the BCS is that almost EVERY regular season game is like a playoff game.

    LSU is still ranked in the top 5 despite losing to two unranked teams? Wow. LSU drops four spots with a loss to unranked Arkansas and ASU drops SEVEN spots after losing to top ten USC. These clueless pollsters are ruining college football.

    That's the AP poll, which I don't think is affiliated with the BCS anymore, so it doesn't matter. LSU is 7th in the coaches poll.

    More hilarious observations:

    8-4 Auburn is ranked yet 9-3 South Florida isn't despite South Florida beating Auburn AND having one less loss. Way to go guys, that makes sense.
