OH I forgot....Houston has the number one ranked offensem no one on the schedule that can give them any challenge, so they too will be undefeated....maybe they can play Boise State in the Totinos Frozen Pizza Bowl while the SEC teams with 5 losses plays the Rose bowl against 2 loss Penn State

I would not want to see a National Championship within a division, but clearly politics are involved, and newer programs like Boise State will not get a chance regardless. They need to go join the PAC 18 and Houston needs to join the SEC

the type of question that could create the scenarios of which teams play for the national championship are so complex that few could answer them except for the geniuses and Harvard, Yale, and MIT. MIT doesn't have a football team. But Harvard and Yale do and they once dominated college football.

I say let tradition kick in and have the Crimson and the Eli's battle it out for the BCS championship when no other reasonable game can be arranged.

People are already starting to write about this scenario...


"There’s no shame in everyone else playing for third. And by third I mean the winner of the LSU-Alabama game simply gets a tougher road to the BCS National Championship Game.

The winner takes the SEC West Division and must win the SEC Championship Game (a foregone conclusion). The loser has to finish out the season without a loss (a foregone conclusion) and hope the human polls embrace reality instead of potentially unbeaten teams in the Big Ten/ACC/Big 12/Pac-12.

And if everyone (other than the winner of LSU or Alabama) has at least one loss, it’s not even a question who plays for it all."

Did you watch the Houston UTEP game? That was the two sorriest excuses for defense that I have ever seen in one game.

Have they done away with the requirement that a team has to win their conference to play in the BCS NC? I can't remember.

Not that I know of... I'm pretty sure its still there.

But Here is the selection rules. I didnt have the patience to read through all of it. But I didnt' see it as a requirement in there when I skimmed over it...

I hate to say... I told you all so again, but I told you so!!!



PS: I was just using LSU losing as an example... I picked LSU to beat Bama...

Spoiler


or

oklahoma & oklahoma state doing the same thing?

Or

nebraska vs wisconsin?

Or

clemson vs virginia tech?

Basically what i'm getting at is... Are you all ok with 2 teams from the same conference playing for a national title even if they are the #1 and #2 teams?
no ! ! !

I actually thought about this thread more than a few times over the past couple of weeks.

The crazy thing is just about all of the things have happened that I thought would need to happen before at least some people would be okay with it. Probably going to have a bunch of conference champs with two-loss records, and a lot of teams with embarrassing losses. The Pac-12 South has a 6-6 champion because USC is ineligible. Just seemed like a lot of teams under-performed this year.

About the only thing that keeps it from absolute chaos is LSU most likely going undefeated.

yea, it played out as needed... I expected most of the teams to have 1 loss... the fact that most have 2 just makes the case stronger for a rematch.
