    The BSC sucks. But maybe, just maybe, the backlash of having Neb. in the Rose Bowl will lead to some type of playoff system.

    I like the idea of having a conference championship game as the first level, then the winners of each conference playing each other (big 12 v. big ten, ACC v. Pac 10) etc. Until you have a true national champ. Keep the bowls as a losers bracket type thing.

    Bottom line, you can not have a team that lost it's last game by 30 points playing for the national championship

    I am in total agreement with you, and I like the conference champ situation. Oregon is getting screwed! It sucks that the computers can't factor in weather in the crunching. Everyone NOT ON the East coast saw what kinda crap Oregon and Oregon state played in. It was HEAVY rain and a pretty strong wind. On top of that, to penalize Joey Harrington and say that his last game was (and I really quote an ESPN analyst!) "horrendous" is completely unfair. It would have helped if 7 passes weren't dropped by his receivers because it was so slick.

    still venting!!!

    I agree with you guys that the BCS is not the way to go in College Football even though I think that it is better than the coaches and writers polls. I disagree that Oregon should be in the Championship game though. It should be Colorado and not Nebraska. After all they beat Nebraska and Texas to win the big 12 and both teams were in the top 5 when they beat them.

    The college football polls/ranking/etc. have always been completely fucked up.

    They are always biased to a ridiculous level towards East coast teams, the Florida ones in particular, and then the midwest teams who will always be ranked even if they lose 2 or 3 games.

    Nebraska didn't even get to play in, much less win the Big 12 championship. They have no business whatsoever playing for a national championship.

    The only fair and reasonable thing would be for Miami to play Oregon in the Rose Bowl.

    Unfortunately, the corrupt system probably won't allow that.

    Some of my reasoning that Oregon should go over Colorado is the 2 loss factor and that Oregon has been the more conistent than COL or NEB. Oregon's loss was VERY close, and actually led by 14 or 17 going into the 4th. Colorado lost BIG the first time to Texas (41-7). Plus Oregon beat Wash. St. when Wash St. was undefeated (in Wazzu), beat Oregon St. when they were on fire, and UCLA wasn't playing to badly either with only (I think) 1 loss, at UCLA.

    Colorado may be the hottest team right now, but over the whole season they weren't near this. Something else I noticed was that in Colorado's loss to Texas, 41-7 they, Colorado, turned the ball over 5 or six times. In the win against Texas, Texas turned the ball over 5 or 6 times and still did come close to beating Colorado. It wasn't close to begin with but Texas sure came back.

    You could make a case for all 3, this is just mine for Oregon- because I am an Oregon fan.

    And if not Oregon, then Colorado (even though they do have a slightly worse record).

    Nebraska could easily beat Miami but that doesn't supersede the fact that they shouldn't be playing them, to begin with.

    College football needs a playoff system. It's the only way to have a clear national champion.

    BCS = Bull Crap Shit (So what if it's redundant? )

    At least BYU lost this weekend, so they weren't whining about the BCS also. They often have a good record, but they also have an easy schedule, so that's why they don't get taken seriously.....

    It's a fact that the PAC 10 is one of the toughest conferences in college football. I'm not especially an Oregon Ducks fan, but there is no doubt that they earned a shot at the championship this year, in a conference where the Cougars, the Cardinals, the Huskies, hell probably half a dozen teams up until the end of the season were in contention for the championship.

    By contrast, in just the last few weeks, we have seen Nebraska and Texas fall down despite their hype, yet remain ranked. Colorado scored 62 points against Nebraska, yet is ranked behind them? That's a crock.

    I may actually boycott the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1978 if Nebraska is allowed to play there.... Since I despise them as much as I do Miami, there's nobody to root for.

    It doen't matter if Neb. wins or not. The point is the do not deserve to be on the field at the Rose Bowl. Even if Miami wins, arguments will still be made that Oregon or Colorado could have beat the 'Canes.

    It's a situation that just plain sucks.

    The problem with post season college football is it makes no sense. They have something like 40 thousand some odd bowl games and make new ones just so teams that are ratings draws that didn't earn a spot can be in a bowl anyway.

    The whole thing has always been a clusterfuck. This idea of a "National Championship Game" is nothing but a promotional joke.

    it's all about the benjamins.

    but get this....

    nebraska is in because TCU won late in the game, sealing it with an interception. and wasn't oregon supposed to play colorado eariler this year but couldn't due to the sept 11th attacks?? that would have entirely changed this thing.

    Actually, Colorado was supposed to play Washington State, not Oregon. But that still could have changed things, because Colorado was not playing well and Wash. St. was HOT! I think Wash. St. would have won. That would have given Colorado 3 losses and they would not be close to where they are now, therefore changing alot of things in the computer polls and helping Oregon.
