    Orange Bowl Nightmare possibility - Kent State vs. Ga Tech

    Orange Bowl Nightmare - Kent State vs. Ga Tech! If they win their last games along with a couple of other events.

    Take the ACC's CG winner's automatic BCS birth and another rule that awards a BCS game to a non BCS conference champion if they are ranked in the top #16 and higher than a BCS conference team and throw in some lack of common sense with the polls and the result is an Orange Bowl with a team that lost by 33 to Kentucky with a creme puff schedule and another that's 7-6 and lost to Colorado.

    IMO, if this works out, would be the biggest stinker in BCS history. Since the start of the automatic bids, the best games are usually the one's that pit the big conference's against each other, like the Capital One or Cotton Bowl. Rutger's could end up souring the Sugar Bowl too.

    It would be pretty bad. Unlikely, but bad. And we have current and former Big East teams to blame.

    Current Big East champion for being ranked below Kent State; former Big East team Miami for forgoing postseason play and allowing a miserable Tech team in.

    If Kent State is in, then Rutgers is the one that is out. Neither will effect the Sugar Bowl. They are the Orange Bowl's problem.

    Wouldn't have this problem if a conference could have more than 2 teams in the show! Bama, FLA, GA, USC, and LSU should be in the BCS series.

    Now Now...we must be fair and ensure that every conference gets a participation trophy.

    Exactly. This is the very philosophy that is rapidly tearing down the country. It's counter to nature.

    Even funnier, Kent State could well beat Georgia Tech.

    The scenario I saw explained on 'Talking Football' was Florida vs Kent State in the Sugar bowl, and Oklahoma is left out of the BCS unless they win the Big-12.

    Yesterday on the radio, someone (maybe Brando) said that Kent State would replace Oklahoma (assuming K-State wins Big 12) in the Sugar Bowl against Florida.

    That is the same as I heard. Isn't Rutgers Big East & aren't they locked in if conference champion to Orange vs ACC?

    they can't lock the big east champ out of a BCS bowl just because it's not deserved. The Kent St inclusion has to do with an at-large bid but the BCS is contractually obligated to take the big east champ. so it's a team like Oklahoma that would get shut out...has no impact on SEC teams at all
