Yep...... It would still be much better to have a playoff system, though.

Agree, the BCS just never did it for me. Granted, they weed out teams who should never have a shot at a championship game, but that sure doesn't stop them in any other sports.

if the polls would have placed Cincinnati at the top of the polls at the beginning of the year then they would be in the big game, Florida was destined for the championship before the season even started cause they started at #1 and stayed there, guaranteed in.

True, although they are a tremendously talented team. No getting away from that.

I'm a concerned fan for Virginia and was wondering.

After coaches are fired, how long do they take to vet and ultimately choose a new guy. Realistically I see it being a couple of months, is there any averege length of time?

I would guess a bit sooner. They don't fire coaches unless they have already been doing some headhunting.

He's talking about the first ever Big 12 championship game, in 1996. Nebraska was a powerhouse at the time, having just come off the 1995 national championship. Texas was a big underdog, but upset the Huskers. Texas went for it on a 4th and 1 on their own 28 yard line. The play was a pass play, with James Brown throwing to Wane McGarity for a 66yd touchdown. Texas won the game in huge upset.

Now the roles are reversed, so some people are making parallels...

However, I still think Texas rolls easily. They are 14 pt favorites, and Nebraska doesn't have the offense of the '96 Texas Team. The A&M game was more of a concern to me. Nebraska has come a long way, though, and I hope for the conference that they make it competitive -- and that our players give them the proper respect.
