well, if the season goes as i think it will, cal will win the pac-10, which would steal an at-large bid from a top 12 team in the BCS. so, sorry to boise state....and LSU, Wisconsin and USC. because of course the fiesta bowl would take notre dame over any of them...

I like Rutgers, but if they lose to WV, IMO they don't deserve a BCS game. There would be too many other teams more deserving.

I thought as long as an unbeaten non-BCS team made the top 12 they were guaranteed a BCS bowl. Maybe I'm mistaken.

I'm still a little unclear about how the BCS picking works. This is my best guess. I think Rutgers loses to WVU and that drops them out of BCS at-large contention. Fiesta Bowl is on record as saying they L-O-V-E Louisville and reps for the bowl have been to Louisville several times. LSU beats Arkansas.

Of course, I could be an idiot...

Notre Dame in the Rose Bowl would be incredible. I'd have to blow my student loans to get tickets though, but it'd be worth it :) Like someone else said, I dont really see the rematch happening though. But if a OSU/UM rematch happens in the Champ game it would set it up since the Rose Bowl would take an at large team.

There has been some talk that the Rose Bowl would take the Irish if Ohio State were to lose to Michigan and USC ended up in the championship game," Catlett said. "I don't know how they'd feel about a Michigan-Notre Dame rematch. It's hard to believe they'd break their ties with the Pac-10."

But if Cal loses to USC Saturday, it's going to be difficult for the Pac-10 runner-up -- either Cal or Oregon, to meet the requisite requirement of being in the BCS Top 14. Likewise, Wisconsin, even at 11-1, would be left on the outside



Seems to me like that Rose Bowl would be OSU vs ND and a Michigan vs USC championship game.


"The bowls don't care who the best team is outside of 1 vs. 2," Catlett said. "Outside of that, the rest of us are trying to get good, deserving teams that put people in the stands, give us good television ratings so that our title sponsor is happy and so we can write those big checks to the schools.

"The beauty of Notre Dame is the same thing with the Dallas Cowboys. Everybody in America that's a college football fan either loves Notre Dame or hates Notre Dame. Nobody has a neutral opinion about Notre Dame. And from a bowl's perspective, what better scenario can you have?

"People who love them are going to watch them on TV, and the people who want to see them get beat are going to watch them on TV. Either way, they get the highest ratings. And that's why whenever I get a chance to put them in my bowl game, I do it."


I just recently started considering if ND would get a BCS game if they lost another close game to USC, this article seems to think it's almost certain.



Apparently the scenarios that could see the BCS fifth-ranked Irish (9-1) fall completely out of the BCS have dwindled to one.

Losing Saturday to Army (3-7).

Rutgers get no respect, but rightfully so. With the way it's set up you can't just show up for one year and expect it. It's a great cinderella story for New Jersey but the're the only ones who want to see 'em play.

so many things would have to happen to get louisville in there. USC, UF, arkansas, notre dame and rutgers ALL have to lose. and even then, the loser of the OSU/michigan game would probably go in anyways.

and "lowly" rutgers beat them. so whatever, you have no clue what you're talking about. anyone that doesn't love the rutgers story isn't a real football fan.

Hey, you're the one who started a thread that called for "extreme BCS predictions", so then dont slam those who do.

How would they possible jump a 1 loss ND or UF team? It cant happen. Unless you have ND and Florida both losing another game and still getting into the BCS? And can Auburn still win the SEC? I'd thought they were all but out of the BCS?

I wasn't aware that all those teams were given wins to finish out the season. Well **** of course it can happen. Will it, porbably not, but its my prediction.

If they were to lose more games I dont see how they make BCS games is one issue. How Auburn makes a BCS game is another. The third issue is that I dont believe UL can win the Big East, the odds of a team not winning its conference and jumping other 1 loss teams for the champ game seems pretty unlikely to me. And if UL cant win the Big East then they wouldnt be the only Big East team in the BCS

It can't happen. It just can't. A two loss Louisville team will still be ranked below a one loss OSU, Michigan team. Even if everything else happens, Michigan and OSU would still be 1/2. Just because Louisville pillaged the Hurricanes doesn't mean they're good or should be ranked high, the Canes suck.

Assuming we get a rematch national title game, and USC loses to Cal, what are the odds of a Cal vs ND Rose Bowl? Idea just popped into my head and now I might want USC to lose.

Title Game - OSU vs UM

Just a thought, people saying ND shouldnt jump a 1 loss Michigan team (assuming of course ND beats USC)because UM beat ND it has happened before. ND beat FSU in 1993, finished with the same record as FSU but FSU played for the championship not ND. I dont see ND jumping UM, but I could see if ND beats USC and if UF and Arkansas both lose again some voters wanting to see ND vs OSU over a rematch.

Id be happy with Florida playin for the title and ND being in the Orange Bowl though, just throwing some perspective out there.

I'm not against a team passing someone else who beat them early in the season. I believe teams change during the season, and you have respect the team as it currently is in your voting. It's just a blowout at home... I like ND, and I'd much rather see them succeed than Michigan, but they don't have a realistic shot at the NC game at this point. Even if ND beats USC, and every other team loses, I think we'll see a rematch over ND.
