[quote=“Craftsy21, post:2, topic:431”]blah. college football is so anti-climatic ain’t it?
Interesting though that a BCS bowl this year is a repeat of the Humanitarian Bowl from not long ago. [/quote]
I thought that the TCU/BSU matchup in the Fiesta was a real crock… TCU and BSU are kind of like the NCAA hoops where the “little guys” just want a shot at one of the “big boys” but alas, that won’t happen.
The BCS can go around saying that “see, we include the little guys, now get off our backs” while there’s no chance of upsetting the status quo because whoever wins will only be the champs of the “non bcs conference bowl”. The last thing the power brokers want is another one of these small conference schools knocking off a big BCS conference school and demanding a playoff. Imagine TCU beating Florida in the Sugar bowl. They’d have a legitimate complaint that they should have been in the “big game” instead of Texas.
If they didn’t match them up, then there’d be the possibility that you could have 4 undefeated teams at the end of the year… Bama/Tex winner, Cincy, TCU and BSU. This way, you eliminate the TCU/BSU loser from the argument and you don’t embolden their case by not giving them a BCS conference opponent.
I just really dislike how the Fieasta went down. (and it has nothing to so with the fact we’re not there… I thought Iowa deserved the BCS bid and not us)
