    Rivals thinks we will be left out of the BCS



    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: Rivals thinks we will be left out of the BCS

    Memphis was included in at least one guy's list and he didn't have ISU. Um, maybe it's just me but Memphis is terrible at football and hasn't had a great basketball program really ever. They had a few solid years recently, but that's it. Overall, those dudes haven't a clue. Which, like someone said above, it's a good thing it's not their choice.

    Duke and Kansas basketball left out of a BCS conference? That would go over well...

    I'm not even going to read it. From the posts above mine, it sounds like they are just throwing darts at a map to pick teams.

    If there are 4-16 team conferences, chances are ISU will be left out...

    That, plus the fact that nobody really knows anything. Most of these people's opinion on the matter is about as valuable and informed as mine.

    Agreed, but I think the only ones who actually want 4 16 team conferences are sports writers.

    This. The media is perpetuating this super-conference myth. They stand around in a circle and....

    Re: Rivals thinks we will be left out of the BCS

    Is there a reason that I would care what rivals thinks?

    Those guys are just as inaccurate and uninformed as the rest of the media running wild on this story. Why should their groupthink opinion matter?

    Cold, hard reality: basketball doesn't matter. Football rules in this whole discussion. BB is just icing on the cake.

    I should add, I don't give Rivals much crediblity on this.

    Isn't it odd that this is the one year that I can't remember a single article calling out the BCS for not using a playoff system to crown the national champion?

    As long as the BCS exists in it's current configuration it doesn't matter if there are 4 20-team super conferences, a play-off system will not be introduced.

    Re: Rivals thinks we will be left out of the BCS

    Welp, if Rivals said so, you guys might as well just pack it up and call it a day. Have the administration folks call up the students and tell them that Iowa State University is, as of September 14th, 2001, disbanded.

    Last one out, hit the lights.
