    Wanna hear something funny?

    CFN.com has it's new rankings out, and ISU is a few spots better than Pittsburgh.

    But Pittsburgh right now would be in a BCS bowl game, probably the Orange Bowl. That's how bad the Big East is.

    But Boise St or TCU might not make a BCS bowl. What a great system the BCS is!

    Re: Wanna hear something funny?

    I just wish Boise would get the respect they deserve. They have a pretty stout defense and there pretty good offense is led by the best quarterback in the nation.

    Boise still plays nobody. They beat Va Tech, and now play high school teams all year. Does Gonzaga deserve a 2 seed in the NCAA tournament every year?

    Re: Wanna hear something funny?

    I don't want to see Boise State get a shot at the title, and here's why:

    They would get a month to heal up from any injuries they may have. They would get a month to plan and scheme for the opponent, and they would likely win because of these factors. Make them join an actual conference, let them play through it and we'll see where they're at. Until then, they shouldn't get a shot at it.

    Boise may get more respect if they actually had some academic standards.

    Wouldnt take them lightly, but also wouldnt take them as a national champion based on what theyve shown.

    I'd rather see TCU in the title game than Boise.

    Exactly. Its said that 'the regular season is the playoff'... in the case of Boise State its like winning the NIT, and then wanting a berth in the NCAA title game because of it.

    Would the other team not get a month to heal up, plan, and scheme?


    Boise puts scheduling offers out to top teams every year (and not just at home), and a good chunk of them back down. It's not their fault other teams are scared to play them and cover it up with the "lose-lose" scenario. They don't have the budget to be in a "real" conference but anytime they play a team from a "real" conference they're usually pretty damn good, if not the better team.

    TCU has a much better case for the national title than Boise State.
