The BCS games are a joke.

USC Illionios will be over by the 2nd quarter, UGA will destroy Hawaii, Va Tech and Kansas is boring and VT will win big. Only WVU and Oklahoma actually intrigues me. That one should be interesting.

The Non-BCS bowls that nobody cares about certainly have a few teams from the Cesspit state.

not a great bowl season to be honest, can't see myself watching many of these games.

BC vs. Michigan State could be good
Music City Bowl looks interesting
On the BCS Bowls
agree with Cro Batman, can't get into many of these games outside of the Championship game and maybe Oklahoma/WVU

It's going to be hard to match last year's bowl games

The biggest joke has to be Illinois getting in a BCS game just because the Rose Bowl (tradition) wants a a Pac 10 vs Big 10 match up. Honestly how in the hell can Missouri be left out of a BCS game when they were #1 last week plus they already beat Kansas and they even beat Illinois in week one. On top of all that they got stuck playing in the Cotton Bowl which is basically the crappiest new years bowl you can get and sorry i'm a Michigan fan but Missouri deserves to be in the Outback Bowl before us but because they wanted "attractive names" and a Big 10 vs SEC match up... once again Missouri gets screwed over.

An 8 team playoff is the only solution to this mess!!!

Agree on most part. P.O. sistem for sure, maybe not 8 team in it, hey but that's just me.p No way i am gonna watch that LSU national game. They don't deserve it. I'll cheer for ASU and now especially ( cause of this crap) Hawaii.

I would also much prefer a playoff system too ... :hopeful: but Im being realistic as to whats out there, and the TRADITION is not goinn to change .... they might alter the way they arrive at the weekly rankings ... specially AFTER a year when everything went Topsy Turby ...but not much more than that ..

I am aware of loads of cash which Bowl games brings, but every year more and more fans in the USA ( you know that as well as i do are against this BCS crap. Fans pay tickets, buy jerseys etc. The change will be done eventually.

The fans have been buying jerseys, tickets, paraphenalia and airplane tickets for over 100 yrs .....their $$$ input is a spit compared to the other $$$...

Again...I REALLY listen to and follow NCAA Football very, very closely .. to me the NFL by comparison is Pee Wee Football ... The national concensus is that MOST the public wants a change (Not ALL the public....remember that) , but the POWERS TO BE will not change the way NCAA Football has run in this country for over a century ...

I happen to believe that the way the rankings are put together might change...but that will be the extent of the ammendments ..

Colo, i would never question your knowledge on this subject. After all, you're living in the States, and i live in Serbia which is far far away from the NCAA and NFL crime scene.p I do follow american football for almost decade through TV and internet. I follow it as close as it's possible for the fan of american football in Serbia.

Seems to me that this years national game won't be viewed in much home across States as some previous national games. Heck, some other Bowl games could end up with a bigger TV audience.

Am i right on this one? Give me an info from the crime scene.

BNS ..... when the day comes .... the WHOLE nation will be watchinn the National Title Game...no doubt.............................I know there are horrible match-ups in this yrs bowls, but that has always been a problem...but its like I said earlier... I love College Ball so much and since I realize this is IT untill 7 more months... I will try to watch every single bowl game if possible...and many, many more are like me ...

If there is a FAIR way of doing sports it has to be by a playoff system, but USA is not from this world, and in this country they will strive to do things oppossite to the rest of the world...Get my Drift ???

On the NFL front ... I love Football and My Bucs, but I dont go crazy on the NFL...its like ....hey its great but....gimme NCCA ... The crime scene is everywhere......remember that to begin with on any sports, anywhere in this universe...that is a way out of poverty, the slums, crime and decadence...Many players carry into adulthood unwanted friends, relationships so forth and so on...Again that happens every day and on all sports...and ultimately that can become the crime we all hate to see..

I dont think the NFL, the NBA, the MLB or national leagues around the world are excempt from it, but it is not a serious problem.

What is becoming a horrible trend here (And it did flourish in Brazil a while back) is for crooks and thiefs to go after well known RICH athletes ...And unfortunately that is how Sean Taylor's life ended so abruptly...(BTW today i happenned to drive past his house..where he was shot....police tape all over the perimeter still ) ...

Hopefully things will simmer down from now forward...but there is no guarantee ...

Cuj:smileani: !

We've been complaining about this system for decades. The bowls go back to the 20's and nothing has changed for over 80 years. They make too much money and they care too much about tradition.

I think the only thing they would reasonably do is have the BCS and then plus 1. Play the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange on New years and the Eve and then 10 days later have a national championship.

I think that's possible but I'd even doubt this scheme.

That's is the problem as well. Until the fans stop watching, stop going and reporters stop caring we will always have this system.

They will get a mega rating for this just as big if we had a playoff final.



These bowls suck. Georgia will demolish Hawaii. I'm sorry Hawaii almost choked against Ty Wilingham's UW. Georgia too much speed too strong too big too physical. Too much of everything.

Illinios will get it handed to them.

Games should've been like this.

LSU v OSU
USC v Georgia Rose
Oklahoma v WVU Fiesta
Mizzou v Hawaii
VT v ASU Orange

Non traditional but some good match ups. USC an UGA will be amazing. Mizzou and Hawaii will be much more even and high scoring. and TV and ASU would be a competitive game.

VT
