    Re: let's talk the stupidity that's the BCS

    A dreadful Rose Bowl, which is sad. Wisconsin has five losses and finishes third in their division. Fiesta will be fun to see what would have happened if one weekend had not happened. Other than that who cares. The rest have no interest to me at all.

    Re: let's talk the stupidity that's the BCS

    From a left-coast point of view, the Rose Bowl is never crap if it involves a competent Pac-8 (oh, sorry, 12) team against a competent Big 10 counterpart.

    Despite Wisco's overall record, I think this year's fits the bill.

    Couldn't agree more. Even the Bowl honchos have to rue the day they got talked into it.
    Is this year's Major Bowl line-up the WORST ever? The BCS Bowl is well and good, and the Fiesta is very good, but even the Rose is deficient. After that, it's total crap.

    Sugar No. 4 Florida vs. No. 22 Louisville
    Orange No. 13 Florida State (11-2) vs. No. 16 Northern Illinois (12-1)
    Rose No. 8 Stanford (11-2) vs. Wisconsin (8-5)
    Cotton No. 10 Texas A&M (10-2) vs. No. 12 Oklahoma (10-2)

    It really WILL take an 8-team play-off to right this ship. But even in that case, the hottest team, TA&M, is SOL.

    1. Notre Dame
    2. Alabama
    3. Florida
    4. Oregon
    5. Kansas State
    6. Stanford
    7. Georgia
    8. LSU
    9. Texas A&M

    It would, however, be fun to see

    ND-LSU (LSU wins)
    Bama-Ga (Been there, done that, but the ending was tantalizing for a rematch)
    Fla-Stanford
    Ore-KsSt (Meant to be!)

    then

    LSU-Ore
    SU-Bama

    then

    Ore-Bama, which is better than the ND-Bama game we're stuck with.

    The best year for the BCS was 2009, when the ten BCS spots were taken by the top 10 in the final BCS rankings.

    let's talk the stupidity that's the BCS

    yes, I realize there's a separate college football thread for the year, but that seems well clogged with divergent thoughts already. From this morning's SF Chron:

    <<...We have an unranked team (Wisconsin) that had the sixth-best record in the Big Ten playing Stanford in the Rose Bowl.

    We have a team (Louisville) that's 21st in the final BCS standings in the Sugar Bowl paired against a team that did not reach its conference's championship game (Florida).

    And in the Orange Bowl, we have a Mid-American Conference team (Northern Illinois) that is 15th in the BCS and lost to an Iowa team that finished 4-8 overall and 2-6 in the Big Ten.

    When the Huskies face Florida State in the Orange Bowl, they won't even have the coach who got them there, because Dave Doeren left to take the job at North Carolina State on Saturday.

    Only five of the top 11 teams in the final BCS standings will be among the 10 teams participating in the five BCS bowl games....>>
