This is Boise State's schedule this year,

# 19 Georgia (at the Georgia Dome)
@ Toledo
v. Tulsa
v. Nevada
@ Fresno State
@ Colorado State
v. Air Force
@ UNLV
v. TCU
@ SDSU
v. Wyoming
v. New Mexico

If Boise goes 12-0 against that schedule and goes to the BCS title game ahead of a one loss SEC team, it will be an absolute sham.

Tell us how you really feel... You are absolutely 100% correct though...

It won't happen... The BCS will find a way to trick the system if it has too
ESPECIALLY if its Bama or LSU and the one loss came from the other.

Thats bull crap. The BCS is the worst college football has ever been. Remember in 1984 undefeated BYU won the national championship. Todays Boise is a similar story. They built a resume over a long period of time, beat a few big boys along the way, got a high ranking and had things fall there way. If Boise was #4 going into bowl season in 1985, and the top 3 teams all lost, they would have had a great chance at a championship.
Today the bcs is such a sham, that it automatically sticks an sec team with the next closest ranked team.............every year. Its not hard to see.

stop about the SEC... That is getting old.

The BCS is better than what we had before this... period. It's not perfect... but better!

Nope, its not perfect nor better. The BCS is in the process of destroying college football. Its destroying traditional conferences and rivalries, not to mention creating a two tier system in division 1 football.
I dont care, that you dont care, but its the truth.

Not surprisingly we're picking up where we left off last year.

I deleted dozens of posts off several threads as a result in nothing but an MFing contest. That's not happening this year. Childish behavior in them? The little girl in this video had more smarts than a bunch of the posters involving this issue. And the juvenile behavior eventually turned in to dozens of reported posts that I had to take care of.

We're not going through that again.

We're just not. Thread closed.
