About the same as oSu schedule compared to 'Bama's this year. Obviously hindsight says Florida deserved to be there.

More hindsight. Bowl games this year haven't been played so I can't come back with an argument. I might have one in month or so. I'm more just playing devil's advocate.

Beating one more BCS top 25 team doesn't make up for losing to a 6-6 while Bama lost to by far the best team in country in my opinion.

On Ole Miss it was just pointing out they were not a bad team. Certainly not a 6-6 team.

I'm not really arguing for oSu or against 'Bama. Like I said before, a rematch for the MNC with two teams from the same division is lame. I have always given the BCS benefit of the doubt. That ends this year. Shutting out two one loss teams from having a shot is fine with me, just not when you are giving another 1 loss team two shots. It's not logical and it sucks for College Football. Thats all. I have nothing emotional tied to this, I hate all teams involved equally, except Stanford I guess, I mean who hates Stanford? LOL

That's pretty much what most people are saying when they say OSU deserves a shot. You're supposed to play the best team of an OTHER conference. Isn't that what sports is supposed to be? Oh well, I hope this game is alot more exciting than the 1st match-up.

Cal hates Stanford, but no one else cares all that much....

I don't really blame Bama or even the voters for any of this...after Bama lost you had several teams that had an opportunity to take over, and all of them managed to blow it in one way or another. I think most years, someone would have stepped up, because that's usually what happens as the early contenders drop off over the course of the season. This time no one did.

I don't think it will really hurt anything so long as it doesn't become a regular occurrence.

No. It's supposed to be the two best teams.

Big 12 has no one but themselves to blame.

I don't see how this is the Big12 fault. It's oUs's fault for being oSu. If it were Oklahoma, texas, michigan, ohio state, notre dame, USCw with the same repertoire, they would have been #2. I have no doubt.

Who's to say OSU isn't a better match-up for LSU offensively? Who's to say there offense is more potent against LSU's defense? Oh well. It is what it is.

Big 12 was against a plus one.
