NIU did not deserve it, and is the reason there are so MANY shoddy Bowl Games
We learned about honesty and integrity - that the truth matters... that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules... and success doesn't count unless you earn it fair and square.

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.
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 .
To heck with both UF and FSU
