    The same one's that are complaining about Oklahoma St. somehow getting screwed are the same one's that will be turning the channel halfway through the 1st quarter when Okie Light is getting blown out by LSU... so they can watch their NFL or college hoops...

    A full fledged playoff is going to be difficult to have happen because the NCAA would control all the money. The conferences are the one's that control the money and it's going to stay that way so they can keep the bowl games/bowl tie-ins in tact.

    If anyone got screwed over from the Big-12, it's a team like Kansas St. who were passed over for a spot in the Sugar Bowl in favor of Virginia Tech. But it's not the first time Kansas St. has been screwed over in the BCS.... it boils down to how well your fanbase travels, spends money, etc. The bowls have to make money, and there's too many bowl games already and many of them lose money. At least VT's fanbase travels well and can fill up 30,000+ seats in the Sugar Bowl. Kansas St.'s fanbase can't, which is why they were passed up for a BCS bowl 1998 despite being undefeated.

    The best college footbal can hope for is a +1 playoff format where the top 4 teams in the country (BCS) can have a playoff for the national championship, while keeping the 4 major bowls in tact.... which is exactly what the SEC tried to propose.

    Every conference other than the ACC shot it down and wanted no part of it. This is the way the Big-12 wanted it, so this is how they're going to get it.

    Back to where we started ..BCS just cut out the middle man.
    How do we know these are the 2 best teams is the point? LSU has proven it but has 'Bama? I don't think so, their sched was not difficult and they lost their toughest game which they had at home. You should have to earn the right to play for a championship, like GB earned their SB last year. if it was the BCS it would have been NE vs. Atlanta and neither team even won a playoff game.

    CFB is a joke and will continue to be a joke. I love CBB and the NCAA Tourney is the best postseason in all of sports but if CFB had a playoff it would blow it out of the water but these big schools want to win one or 2 tough games a year and be slotted into a title game rather than earning it.

    Okay...this is just silly....Stanford has a better gripe than Okie St.
    Their one lose was to Oregon...Ok. St lost to IOWA ST...Let that sink in.
    Ok. St has no one to blame but theirselves...end of story.

    There is No way,and I mean no way to defend losing to a almost 4 touchdown underdog..
    No way.

    You want to put Stanford in? Ok, they both deserve it over Bama.

    Bama lost at HOME to LSU, that should have removed them immediately unless they had fewer losses than Ok St or Stanford.

    Thats a big negative....all Stanford and Okie St. had to do was win after Bama lost.
    It was set up for them and they failed.
    Is this not true?
    Just win and don't leave it up to nothing else...this isn't like a undeated team getting screwed over like Auburn in 2004.
    This is about teams shooting theieselves in the foot.
    They held their own destiny in their own hands and screwed the pooch.

    Losing at home has nothing to do with it. The home team has zero advantage in this rivalry... doesn't matter if it's in Baton Rouge or Tuscaloosa. The game is typically going to come down to a field goal worth of difference even if they played in a grocery store parking lot in Europe.

    Oklahoma St. didn't beat a single ranked opponent on the road, they have zero decent road wins. Alabama went on the road and beat #24 Penn St. in Happy Valley.

    Did you see the LSU vs. Bama game when they played on Nov. 5th? If anybody would've watched that game for the first 60 minutes of regulation and then shut their television off... they'd swear up and down that Alabama was probably the better team, and ended up winning that game...

    Both Bama and LSU have only been in one game all season that was even a contest... it was against each other.

    Stanford got blown out by the Pac-10 Champion... the same team LSU blew out. Stanford didn't "win their conference"... hard to argue for them and against Bama using the same logic.


    Oklahoma St. removed themselves immediately the instant they lost to Iowa St. Prior to that, Oklahoma St. removed themselves the instant the Big-12 decided to pass up the SEC's offer of a +1 playoff.

    This is the system they wanted, this is the results they got.

    Being at home is a huge edge and can tip the scale of 2 evenly matched teams.

    You are using PSU as the marquee win? PSU's best win was over Ohio State.

    Stanford didn't get a chance to play LSU at home either, in reality you should have to win your conference to play in the title game.

    Why?...Where is that rule?
    The BCS 's job is to pit #1 against #2.
    Like it has been said before the SEC offered a plus one awhile back.
    The other conf's. voted it down.....It's called Karma

    Being at home isn't a huge edge in this particular rivalry. LSU and Bama are too evenly matched. The road team has won 7 of the last 11 times.

    Beating Penn St. on the road is Bama's best road win. It's a ranked opponent.

    Oklahoma St. hasn't beat any ranked team on the road. Period.

    Bama's best win was over the #6 team in the country (Arkansas) in a 38-14 blowout. We had scrubs playing the 4th quarter of that game. Arkansas only two losses are against the #1 and #2 teams in the country.

    Okie St.'s best win is against #8 Kansas St.... the team a healthy Oklahoma blew out 58-17.


    You shouldn't have to win your conference in order to play in the title game. But if they want to make it a rule, then make it a rule.

    But it won't be until after LSU and Bama have played for all the marbles.

    They let Nebraska and Oklahoma into the BCS title game before without winning their conference, and neither of them had to compete with the #1 team in the country within their own conference.


    Being a conference champion holds no weight until all the conferences are playing conference championship games. Secondy, it holds no weight because all the conferences aren't equal. There's at least 3 teams in the SEC that would go win every other conference undefeated.

    Teams from the Big-10 and Pac-10 have been getting into the BCS championship game for a decade without having to play a conference championship game.

    It's worked in their favor for a decade. It worked against them this year.
