    Sorry not everyone on this board is a UC/Big East cheerleader.

    Paint and I had a nice little discussion. Sorry you're not capable of that.

    I think Florida is 2 touchdowns better than UC.

    lulz. . . except Miami.

    Also, Boise/TCU is a good matchup. What would be better? Boise or TCU vs GT or Iowa? I think both teams are better than the Orange Bowl matchup.

    TCU/Boise is a good matchup, but they played last year in the Holiday Bowl. I'm not going to go out of my way to watch that one or the Orange Bowl. Iowa is the weakest of all the BCS teams and they get the winner of the ACC Wheel of Destiny that lost to Georgia.

    They'll be good football games, but they'll get lost amongst the other BCS matchups.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    The matchup between the two teams in a vacuum isn't the issue. The fact of the matter is that winning that game is about akin to winning the NIT. It will only settle one debate in the minds of the "talking heads": who the best team in the non-bcs conferences is. Neither of these teams gain anything from this game at all, aside from the increase in money and potential increase in exposure. Until these teams are given a "real chance" there will never be an opportunity to see a TCU or Boise St. in the national championship, regardless of who is on their team. They could have 22 Tim Tebows and would still finish 6th or 4th and not make the national championship.

    And, let's not forget that the BCS will gladly pimp this matchup as a "battle of the unbeatens" and so on, regardless of how poorly thought out the bowl selections were this year. Simply switching Florida and Boise would have fixed this in a heartbeat.

    Florida and UC should be a fun game. I hope UC wins so it will shut up SEC fans a little.

    If Florida wins, it's because UC sucked all along. If UC wins, it's because Florida didn't play well and was distracted, or something.

    The media will spin this in such a way that UC has no way of winning the perception battle no matter the outcome on the field. And of course, all non-Florida SEC fans will take credit as if they accomplished it themselves. I never understood that attitude.

    I can explain why I feel conference pride... when you play in the grinder that is the SEC East, season after season, it's hard NOT to begin to develop those feelings. That's just me, speaking for myself. I certainly won't feel anywhere near the elation that I would experience were it MY team winning the game, however.

    That's ridiculous, I wonder how much it was the ACC giving the finger to the Gator bowl since they have decided to ditch the ACC for their next bowl tie in.

    Yup. I spend 8 weeks a year watching the SEC kick my favorite team's butt. So it gives me a bit of pleasure when the SEC breaks it off in an out of conference game against a "good" team.

    Perfectly stated. It's nothing malicious, so don't take it personal, UC fans or whomever else. I enjoy rooting for my conference.

    Only, it's not the SEC. It's Florida and Alabama; or before Nick Saban, Florida and LSU. I've also never understood how people get some kind of fulfillment from the this. The reason UK and Vandy get kicked around week in and week out is because they're just not very good football programs. UK would get kicked around in most major conferences out there with the ocassional season where they win some games (like they did in the SEC a few years ago). Of course, I'm sure their fans believe it's only because the SEC is so tough, but it would be the same in the Pac-10, Big-10, Big-12, and maybe even the Big East. Heck, they'd be lucky to be 5th best in the Mountain West. Every conference has the teams they beat up on.

    I'm a UK fan and an SEC fan of sorts, but I would never root for Florida, Georgia, or any Steve Spurrier coached team under any circumstances.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Really? Really? You better check the SEC's out of conference and bowl record the last few years. Heck, even doormat Vandy got a bowl win last year over the ACC runner up last year. And doormat Kentucky is working on a 3 season bowl winning streak.

    Tennessee is my bugaboo. Spurrier and Petrino are close. I respect Richt a lot, as a man, so it is hard for me to root against them.

    Exactly Mike.

    So what do they do? Pair these two teams up against each other. Didn't they play each other in a bowl game last year?

    Will it be a good game? Sure. But it's still a smack in the face to these smaller schools IMO.

    Cincy gets that opportunity by being paired up with Florida. And while I'll be rootin for, and hoping, the Bearctas beat them, I just don't see it happening. But.....
