    I want to face TCU so we can end their love affair with the media.

    Yeah, that's what people said about Boise State when they played Oklahoma and Utah against Alabama. Fact is, these programs have closed the gap.

    My guess is if UC and TCU played in a bowl game, the Vegas line wouldbe very close but it would most likely be in TCU's favor. I wonder how many who are minimizing TCU have actualyl watched them play a full game. They are legit and can play with just about anyone. They play on both sides of the ball.

    But like I said, I don't care if they are from the little conference, they are undefeated, I just don't see what they have to "prove".

    I don't think they have anything to prove to us or themselves Krono. It is the talking heads we want to shut up. TCU and Boise beating a big time program would go a long way towards doing that.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Nah, Boise beat Oklahoma and Utah beat Alabama, it will never stop until they are "big" conferences or the few good schools in those conferences join the big ones.

    TCU vs Boise would be a good game

    Re: BCS Bowl Selection Sunday

    On another note, how does a bad 6-6 team get into a new years day bowl over 4 teams from the same conference with better records?

    What a joke.

    But even those rankings are based on brand name and the conferences they play in.

    The rest of the ACC teams agreed to it as a farewell gift to Bobby Bowden.

    Plus it would just be the same bowl game for those kids. TCU beat Boise St last season in the Poinsettia Bowl 17-16.

    Not only do you screw the kids in that one, but also the fans.

    The BcS sucks. That's all I have to say.

    Re: BCS Bowl Selection Sunday

    Did I see that right? TCU ranked #4th? I guess that answers the question if UC would leapfrog them.

    Damn. 1 second away. *sigh*

    And Boise State v. TCU is an awful matchup. Neither of schools gain anything from that matchup.

    #3 UC and #5 Florida at the Sugar Bowl as Fox talks like it's a foregone conclusion that Kelly is headed to Notre Dame.

    Exactly. The reason these teams want to play the big boys is that is helps their arguments in the future when they go undefeated. The more often a Utah beats an Alabama, the more likely it will be for the voters to finally give one of these teams a chance to play for the title.

    Should TCU be the team getting so much hype and respect in the rankings compared to Boise this year...Boise St. beat Oregon for crying out loud. Boise has hardly gotten a mention it seems from the talking heads this year.

    Oregon is the only team that Boise beat who would even go .500 against the schedules of Texas, Cincinnati or TCU. They just don't have the schedule that really gets them in the conversation. Not that its entirely their fault, the league really let them down this year.
