    As a UF fan/graduate I'd be somewhat happy with Oklahoma.., More so? Oregon, as the next highest ranked.
    Even Georgia.., again. Those two teams would have filled the 'Dome'.
    Louisville? Sorry. Although I like Charlie/ his team and have followed them since he went there.
    Louisville will definitely have more 'purpose'.

    Georgia gets skewed. Although they get Nebraska and that will be worth watching, their payoff is $4.5 million
    The Sugar Bowl? $17 Million.*

    Conferences share the BCS money their teams bring in, so it's not about the money to them. The reason we have F'd up bowl match-ups is because so many people cried when teams that had pudding schedules went undefeated and everyone cried that they were being "screwed". so they wrote in some rules to oppen it up to ****ty, small schools with weak *** schedules. Now you have Northern Illinois taking a spot away from OK.

    Certainly understand the above.
    Even so, how much would your Univ./conference want to share? The 17M, or the 4M. And if you're one of the top 5 teams who would you EXPECT to play?
    This 'transition' period is SUPPOSED to get us to an equitable ending! The JOURNEY sure suks.

    Both the UF and FSU game matches are sad. Shameful actually.

    Here is some good perspective. >>>>> http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/73059/beyond-top-two-games-bcs-lineup-is-weak
    Which ever one(s) of you little boys complained about quotes in the signature should be ashamed of yourself. :blowkiss

    Instead of complaining to the moderators you should just quit playing on this board.

    Yep. Big let down. I was pumped about UF vs. OU.

    The winner in this whole thing is the Cotton Bowl. Two teams that are former conference rivals and both ranked 11 or higher. Sucks for OU. Really lucky for the Cotton bowl.

    I can't wait to see how the refs handle ND v BAMA. They normally cheat so hard for either team, they won't know what to do.

    And good lord, if Musberger calls that game, the nostalgia-overload may kill him

    Man, Nebraska is going to get pounded in that game. On the flip side, I think FSU is going to get all they can handle and then a little more...

    The system really showed how screwed up it can get this year. The Big East automatic and non major automatic really weakened the slate.

    The link to the Nebraska site was great :rotflmao

    The bcs is a mess this year why.......the bcs didnot want the AP playing spoiler with a different #1.......there are at least three other teams that can lay claim to the bcs exclusion game. That is outside of bama vs ND
    Here is one case. Uf playing Oregon ducks, kansis, or even OU. UF winning the game inhances its SOS to levels that NO teams level of dificulty pcomes close to.
    AP would love to play spoiler if ND did not win. BCS made sure that No team will play a meaningfull game with enough fan fare to cause them any problems.
    Pure crap to protect their very failed system.
    For the love of all outdoors recreational activities....what my spelling is off, that will learn ya. Pimping ain't easy unless u went to FSU, its a BS course.
    What do u get when you can connect the dots, color inside the lines, and get your release papers.....sentence served, times up at Felon sentenced university.
    Floridas first woman's college.
    The only difference between FSU and all the other colleges are other colleges accept you into the university's. At FSU you are taken into custody.

    Or they just followed their own flawed rules

    I just wish they would take the bowl proceeds and divide them evenly among all FBS teams to make it fair to all, then schedule the games like they should be scheduled. No team should be playing on New Years Day or after who is not in the top 10 unless it takes you out to #15 to schedule the games. Furthermore mid conference teams who get beaten by teams that rank in the bottom half of the SEC, ACC, PAC 10, Big 10 should not be eligible for ranking (ie Kent State losing to a 2-10 Kentucky or Northern Illinios losing to a 4-8 Iowa). At least Boise State played and won one tougher game each year.
