Is that Miami of Florida listed on the MPC Computers Bowl? :lol: For some reason I doubt they'll accept that bid.

Bowl Projection:Florida State vs. UCLA

Looking forward to this game for some reason. Two teams you dont see play each other. And Miami doesnt have much choice unless they just want to sit this one out completely.

It doesn't have all the bowl names up, because it is pacific Life Holiday Bowl, but they only have Holiday Bowl. Because I think there are some pretty stretched out bowl names.

I think the Holiday Bowl could be good.

As for the Texas Bowl, it sucks that UT aren't in a bigger game, but I'd enjoy seeing them play Iowa.

Also, I don't know why everyone is projecting Florida to lose the SEC game. As good as Arkansas are, they're not going to beat UF.

I dont know, I can see the SEC champ game going either way. It's looking like ND will play the winner in the Sugar Bowl but I'm not sure which team ND has a better chance against so I'm just hoping for a good game.

I've been calling for a ND v Florida Sugar Bowl for the last few weeks. I'd love to see that game. Two storied schools, two great coaches, two deep rosters, and I just think it would make a great game. I think it would be the more competitive bowl game, like PSU/FSU was last year.

I think it'd be a good game. A lot of the projections have had that as the matchup most of the season I think, so a lot of people must want to see it. They could play up the Meyer vs the team he turned down also

found this. I'd be surprised if it doesnt go down this way



The official announcements won't come until Sunday, but barring a major change in attitude, the Rose Bowl is ready to have its first SEC team in Pasadena since Alabama in 1946.
Notre Dame would slide to the Sugar Bowl to face the SEC champion, the winner of Saturday's game between Florida and Arkansas. The Orange Bowl would then pair the ACC champion (Wake Forest or Georgia Tech) vs. the Big East champion (Rutgers or Louisville). The Fiesta Bowl would match Boise State vs. the winner of the Nebraska-Oklahoma Big 12 championship game.
And the BCS title game would be No. 1 Ohio State vs. No. 2 USC, as long as USC beats UCLA.

Orange and Fiesta Bowls dont excite me at all, others will be fun to watch though

Orange and Fiesta will be pretty drab, I agree, but I'd love to see Michigan vs LSU and Florida vs Notre Dame.

USC vs Ohio State will be great also.

Hysterikill why must you torment me with your sig pic?? :boohoo: :boohoo:

On topic, OU has officially announced that if they win the Big XII CCG they will go to the Fiesta Bowl, and if they lose they will play in the Cotton Bowl.

Just a ? if we win and go to the Fiesta Bowl, will Bob Stoops be the first coach in the BCS era to go to all 4 major bowls? Orange (00 and 04) Sugar (03) Rose (02)

Isn't Notre Dame ranked 10th? They don't deserve a bowl game. I like Notre Dame but come the **** on. IMO, they should give the top 4 bowl games to the best 8 ranks.

I think Wisconsin can beat Notre Dame.

There are 5 BCS games, guess what 5X2=10. Also Wisconsin cant go to a BCS game because 3 teams from 1 conference cant get BCS births. OSU and Michigan take the spots Wisconsin gets left out. Take it up with the BCS.

I think LSU/Michigan is a great matchup and something we haven't seen before.I :pray: that game happens. College football really needs a SEC/Big Ten match up.

Does anyone else wonder why LSU is already slotted for a BCS game?
If UF wins against Arkansas, then LSU should be in w/o a doubt.
But, if Arkansas wins that game, then what's the reasoning of LSU over UF? UF won in that match up, and it wasn't like either team's loss to Auburn where officiating probably determined the outcome. There was a couple of poor calls in that game, but even LSU fans admit that UF was the better team in that game.

I do think OSU and USC will be a good game. USC does show up for the big ones.

I think if Arkansas wins it'd throw a wrench in the plans and LSU would be out. Despite their politicians calling bowl representatives and saying they deserve a BCS bid. I think the report that LSU was in the Rose Bowl was a little premature, but I'm sure it'll happen if everything works out Saturday

It's funny, LSU is arguably the #4 team in the SEC (finished behind Arkansas in the West, lost to Auburn) yet they seem guaranteed a spot in a BCS bowl by virtue of not making the SEC championship game.

However prepare BSU we got a lil guy named AD comin back, im sure youve heard of him :D Oh and our defense is much better than the powerhouses of Oregon St, Nevada, and dare I say Sacremento St.

Its all in fun heres to a great game in the desert, after living in Idaho for 2 years, your fans will make it interesting in Glendale, as I know you guys will all wanna be there

AD could of really came back if he wanted to for the Big XII title, but im sure Stoops was comfortable with Allen Patrick and Chris Brown enough to not jeperdize AD's health, we are saving him to go out in style in the Fiesta Bowl.

I can't see UM coming to play. How are you going to get a bunch of Miami kids to be ready to play in a COLD Dec bowl game against a team that won't attract much national publicity? Especially for a Lame Duck coach?

There are some who would have you believe that the WAC is comparable to Division 1-AA in stregnth. Boise's accomplishment against such "weak" teams is a joke and a dishonor to the BCS system.

In fact, the WAC has teams that are of a high quality and I believe that they will sweep the bowls they are invited to: the Hawaii Bowl, the MPC Computers Bowl, the New Mexico bowl and the Fiesta Bowl. Will this be enough to silence the critics? Hell no, the elitist attitude of the East Coast towards the Western teams will always be there.

Oregon is no big deal. They were defeated several times during the year, even once to Oregon State who Boise defeated handily 42-14. If a Ref call was enough to win the game for Oregon, then Oklahoma didn't do a good enough job distancing themselves scorewise.

but what im asking is in the last 5 years, what pac 10 or other bcs confernce teams have you played? honest question, not trying to be a dick :D
