    Re: Who's Pulling for the Huskies of NIU?

    Well- If I actually thought that it would change the way the BCS does things with these limitations and stupid rules then I'm all for FSU putting it on 'em. But I don't think it will change anything so i think it would be funny to watch Jimbo squirm and possibly lose this game. Besides- I hate being the only big name school that the Huskies have ever beaten (within the last decade at least) let 'em add FSU to that list.

    This is hilarious. Who said Louisville is deserving??? Neither team is deserving. The current BCS is a HUGE problem. Only the NC and Fiesta bowl matchups are good.

    I hope NIU and Louisville lose by 30+.

    NIU beat Buffalo 45-3. UGA beat Buffalo 45-23.

    I have no issue with it. It's not even in the top 10 biggest BCS game screw ups.

    And by the way, who did NIU drop a game to?

    I hope NIU is completely destroyed. The only way this game would be fun to watch would be if the old Cumberland College record were to fall. Putting them in a BCS game is a joke on football fans and an insult to major football teams.

    So by that logic I guess NIU would have beaten Alabama? Come on man. It's a ridiculous selection resulting from a ridiculous rule.

    Re: Who's Pulling for the Huskies of NIU?

    I love how suddenly the Orange Bowl became some sacrosanct entity. People seem to forget that once it #1 and #2 were selected, the BCS Bowls were NEVER about placing the most qualified teams in the remaining spots. The BCS itself put this rule in place so it wouldn't get hit with an anti-trust lawsuit.

    Re: Who's Pulling for the Huskies of NIU?

    If this was a 16-team playoff, NIU would be seeded #15 and would play the #2 seed. (For the benefit of any barners reading, that team would be Alabama.) Since NIU isn't close to being one of the top 50 teams in the nation, they would have absolutely no chance against that particular team. Therefore, their only real shot at victory would be to put the other team's best players out. Chop-blocks, late hits, you name it -- and why not? Take a few penalties, win a few games, and collect millions of dollars. (Please note that I'm only using the current teams as an example. I'm sure NIU would not stoop to such a level, regardless of the money involved.)

    And isn't that sad? To avoid lawsuits brought by schools with no chance at the BCS money, we're now guaranteed a chance at one good bowl game a year.Wait until the playoff system starts and all the directional schools feel left out. It's way past time for the major conferences to separate from the NCAA and form their own system. I know it's been tried before, but maybe it would work this time. Otherwise, we could end up with federally-mandated revenue sharing in college football. Wouldn't that be great? We could even draw names out of a big fishbowl to determine who gets which recruit. Parity is so interesting.

    NIU wasn't selected for a BCS game. That's not how it this worked out. It's like saying UGA was selected for the SECCG..
