The Status quo means undefeated or NO FUCKING SHOT for the bucks. Right or wrong it's just the way it is... Between the perceived weak-ass B10 (all internet arguments aside) or the failure to win on the big stage, outside of a playoff what real shot do the the Bucks have? Do we get to stand aside each week and golf-clap Stanford or LSU as they go blowin' past after a big win? At this point watchin' teams lose and hoping we move us is apparently fruitless.So given all that at this point I'd much rather see BSU-TCU assuming Bama takes care of Auburn and Oregon trips up. If we go with the one-loss theory does anyone here seriously want to watch LSU-Nebraska in the title game? Sure a lot can happen but the thought of watching that game over TCU-BSU disgusts me. I wouldn't favor either team over TCU or Boise. Yet if Auburn can win the title game of the SEC look for the LSU drum to be strong. So apparently this is a long-winded way of saying screw it if we sit aside and watch teams pass up the Buckeyes anyway, don't expect me to cheer on LSU-Stanford or a potential one-loss Oregon against Nebraska. If all the big conferences produce one-loss teams let the NCAA eat a little crow while TCU takes on Boise.

Head into the SEC title game with the clear Heisman winner in Cam Newton... only to lose to South Carolina or Florida... perhaps taking away Cam's Heisman... and then after South Carolina or Florida get their BCS invite as conference champs... LSU gets the at-large invite for either the nat'l title game or the Sugar Bowl...Could go from BCS or bust... to truly bust...

dmiles wrote:I think pairing off TCU and Boise in the BCS last year was harmful for each school. First of all it was a rematch because the prior year TCU beat Boise 16-10 in the Poinsettia Bowl.Second it disallowed each an opportunity to win against a BCS quality school. I remember when that pairing was made thinking, what the hell? Given the Bowl selection process, and how the teams fell into the BCS I completely understand how the matchup came about, I just mean as a fan, it was the worst possible thing. If TCU and Boise go in and get spanked by a BCS team then all the doubts about each school are warranted. On the other hand if they both win their games then everyone knows that you have to give them their propers. Again I understand the issue about playing weak teams, but hasn't the MWC prior to the this season had some decent success against the Pac-10? Or just beating up on the weak-sisters? Boise of course isn't in the MWC and with them moving over next year had Utah stayed things might have gotten interesting. And of course Utah gets spanked at home throwing that theory out the window. How many WAC teams would Purdue beat on the road? Indiana? Vandy? Are you betting Indiana out at Fresno or Nevada? I am not. The MWC is another one to consider. Air Force is currently in 5th place of the MWC. To me I'd have to go to about 6th place (Colo. St.) before I start giving Indiana much of a chance on the road. I am not taking Purdue over BYU in Provo. My point being if Purdue can muster up an upset at home against an Ohio State, are we to assume that other schools in the MWC couldn't do that? Hell SDSU played us DAMN tight right in Columbus a few years back (Michigan too). Getting back to the main point that TCU going undefeated in that conference is an indication of being a BCS Bowl quality team and possibly a BCSCG worthy team. I just don't see those conferences as being as pathetically weak as they are made out to be. Weaker than the Big-10/SEC/Big 12, moderately weaker than the Pac-10, and in the case of MWC, stronger than the Big East.

Their margin for error is none. I don't care if they win out from here, not a fan of seeing them get a shot at BCS championship. Regardless of what goes down, the situation begs for a national playoff.
