    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/po...lineup-is-weak

    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...
