Why would they send UCF out to Glendale, instead of down to Miami? It's like how they sent UConn out there a few years ago instead of down to Miami. As a result, you had thousands of empty seats.

Scout.com has UCF going to Miami vs Clemson in the Orange Bowl. Missouri-Oregon would be an interesting matchup in the Sugar Bowl. So would a Baylor-Texas A&M Cotton Bowl,

Yep. And that was a lose-lose situation for the Sooners. Horrible matchup.

I don't agree with Stanford leapfrogging Baylor and hope that the Bears will get a chance to leapfrog the Cardinal if they win out. Like the Big10, the Big12 might be having some hard times right now, but they're still a legitimate conference, with established football programs that are usually competitive year in and year out. Going undefeated in that conference is an accomplishment.

Harrier buys the Kirkland brand of laundry detergent from Costco.

Go Huskies! (Costco is a Seattle based company - and Harrier is a Washington fan.).

It's a pretty good possibility right now.
Now it is only the Buckeyes, Seminoles, and laundry detergent from your list.

Because UCF deserves a Fiesta Bowl bid, just as did UCONN a few years ago.

Not saying they don't deserve a BCS bid, just saying it makes a lot more sense to send them to the Orange Bowl over the Fiesta Bowl.
