    NIU did not deserve it, and is the reason there are so MANY shoddy Bowl Games

    I guess I'd just rather see Florida State play Texas A&M or Georgia in the Orange Bowl.

    Your true colors are starting to show through......might want to tone down the "Bama was lucky" type posts......those don't play well out here.

    No it wasn't.

    We are happy to be 11-1 this year after the past 2 dismal seasons.

    We were thrilled to get into the Sugar Bowl.

    Were we excited to have a shot at the BCS Championship? Heck yeah! But ultimately Bama and Noter Dame earned that distinction.

    I'm sure any team that has won national championships and then goes into the toilet can relate to that scenario.

    I stand corrected then, but going back to previous posts... I still can't see how Florida are "victims" in this situation.

    Orange Bowl rep to NIU: We didn't even want you here

    Actually bowl tie-ins are a problem too. It would be cool if they dropped it and placed top 10 teams against each other. After next year it will be less of a problem with the Semifinal setup (quarterfinal) for the SEC .

    I am not a very articulate person, so I find it dificult to express why I feel the way that I feel - but I know that I will be an NIU fan tonight.

    You could argue the term 'victim' applies if the discussion centers around a flawed system.

    I don't know any #3 ranked team who would want to play a #21 ranked team in their BCS bowl.

    To that position.....victim is an appropriate word, IMO.

    Hard for me to accept anyone as a "victim" when they're playing in a BCS bowl.

    I never said that Alabama was lucky, so please stop with that stuff. My posts and my feelings are consistent - Alabama is the best team, has the best coaching staff, and has the best program in America right now. Don't make me out to be something that I am not just because we disagree about this subject.
