Stanford had the advantage of an extra win. By the logic they used for FSU’s loss, however, Stanford should be down near FSU in the rankings, or FSU should be up where they are.
Only 9 SEC teams? hehehe...
I would want a P12 SEC bowl showdown series.
Stanford vs. Alabama
Oregon vs. Georgia
Oregon St. vs. Florida
UCLA vs. LSU
USC vs. Texas AM
And frankly, Northern IL, Louisville, and Wisconsin have no business in the BCS bowls.
Stanford has the much better schedule than FSU.
Stanford played 13 games, 10 games were against teams in a post season bowl, one loss was at ND on a questionable call, and one win was on the road at Oregon and they also beat a 9-2 UCLA team twice to end the season.
Fl ST. played games against 5 teams going to a bowl.
Wouldn’t it be easier to just have one bowl game between the two teams who weren’t selected for a bowl game?
Umm, nope! You can thank the Ohio State University for violating NCAA rules and former OSU coach Jim Tressel for not reporting it to the NCAA & lying about it which caused OSU's probation, bowl ban & removal from the BCS ranking system.
You can also thank the Penn State University leadership for hiding & lying about former Asst. Coach Jerry Sandusky's pedophilic adventures on the Penn St. campus. This cost Penn State a probation, bowl ban & removal from the BCS ranking system.
Perhaps you can even thank the University of Nebraska for their matador rushing defense, but I think Wisconsin would have obliterated any SEC team (and most NFL teams) with the offensive game plan and execution they exhibited on Saturday night.
NIU earned their BCS spot by going undefeated in MAC conference play - which is better quality than Big LEast conference play and about on par with ACC conference play.
Actually, you should thank the University of Arkansas for abandoning the old Southwest Conference for the SEC. That single event upset the balance of college football conferences across the country and led to all of the current bad ideas in college football - the demise of the Southwest Conference, conference expansion, conference realignments, conference division alignments, conference championship games, the start of the BCS system, the modification of the flawed BCS, its replacement with an even worse BCS system, the end of most conference bowl alignments, famine and plagues, fire from the skies, cats and dogs living together, etc.
Suhey Pig indeed!
Don't you mean the 2nd most excruciating game behind last year's 9-6 Alabama-LSU "thriller?"
No, that would be last years’ UF-FSU game.
This surprised me too.
What did it was the human polls, not the computers. Usually the less prestigious teams (Boise State in ‘08, Miami of Ohio in ‘03), the computer rating is higher than the human poll rating.
Also NIU’s win over Kent State vaulted them 6 slots in the polls. That’s quite a rise for a fairly evenly matched opponent. (21st vs. 17th going into the game).
Alabama is a early 9 point favorite over Notre Dame.
The Kumquat Bowl? ;-)
Boomer..... Sooner! :-P
The OU - A&M game is terrible for me! One of our sons graduated from OU and the other from A&M. Argghhhhhhh!
Living in the burnt orange area I am a closet A&M fan but I have no loyalty issue on the 4th.
