    Who do you guys think we will get for the BCS Bowls?

    Orange: FSU vs. Rutgers
    Fiesta: K-state vs. LSU
    Sugar: Florida vs. Oregon
    Rose: Stanford vs. Nebraska
    NC: Notre Dame vs. Alabama

    I'm assuming LSU gets the nod over the other two loss SEC teams (A&M, Georgia, South Carolina) but I'm not an expert on the BCS rules, so if there can't be three SEC teams playing in the top games (which is BS, but whatever) then Oklahoma replaces LSU.
    We're better than you
    And we know it

    I don't think you can have 3 teams from the same conference.

    That would be one of the worst Rose Bowl matchups in awhile.

    And the Orange Bowl.... WoW but that game here recently has been mediocre

    For some reason Im thinking that the Fiesta gets their pick before the Sugar bowl and seemingly would take Oregon.

    Sugar gets first pick according to what I read.

    I'd much rather see us play Oregon but I think it will be a 2008 Championship rematch against Oklahoma in the Sugar.

    Only two teams from one Conference can be in the BCS, unless they changed the rules. LSU won't get in a BCS game.

    you can only have 2 teams from a conference in the BCS games, so bad news for LSU and the bama gerogia loser. your ten BCS teams are imo these ten:

    ND vs Bama
    Stanford vs Nebraska
    FSU vs Rutgers
    Oreogn vs KSU
    Florida vs Oklahoma

    I know this isn't the best source, but it could spark discussion at least. Being an NIU alum it would be cool to see them face FSU in a BCS bowl. Even though they would probably get destroyed. Also I would be pissed if Georgia beats Bama and gets in the title game. Their one loss was by 28. I have a hard time rewarding a team for that.

    I don't think NIU is getting destroyed easily. They would scare a lot of teams. I would take them over any Big East school.

    Probably the most underrated program out there.

    I understand your point, but that's not saying much

    More on Georgia, Florida was the only ranked team they beat. Their next best win was Vanderbilt who went 8-4. After Vanderbilt their next best win was Ole Miss or Georgia Tech...both 6-6. The other 7 teams they faced have losing records or were FCS level.

    Looks like Louisville will be in the Sugar or Orange bowl.

    Whatever. This Georgia conversation is getting old. If Georgia beats Bama, how do they not deserve to play in the NC game. They will have beaten the #4 team in the nation (Florida) and the #2 team in the nation (Bama). Nothing else will matter at that point.

    I'm not happy about it either but that's the system until the playoff. But honestly, which teams other than a 12-1 SEC Champion Georgia would have a legitimate case to play for the National Championship? Kansas State? They were hammered just as badly as the Dawgs by a worse team. Oregon? Perhaps. But just like Georgia, they've played two good teams all year and went 1-1 against them. And Georgia's best win beats the hell out of Oregon's best win.

    As far as resumes go, Florida has an argument until you look at where the L came from in their W/L column.

    Oregon will face the Big 12 Champ in the Fiesta Bowl. Also, Boise State may worm their way into a BCS bowl...lol
