    Does the BCS give into the SEC?

    Now that they have A&M they feel that their argument is stronger to abolish the 'two team maximum in BCS bowls' rule.

    Will they give in?

    Re: Does the BCS give into the SEC?

    Why should the other conferences vote yes? They know who that 3rd spot comes from.

    Re: Does the BCS give into the SEC?

    I don't really understand how the BCS works. Are there 6 votes available, one from each of the BCS conferences? Who gets to make this decision?

    I think we could fairly say that the PAC and Big East will be against it.

    I'm pretty sure the Big 10 and SEC will be for it.

    I'd assume the Big 12 will be against it. Who knows about the ACC now that they have more than 12.

    True, but if a conference has more teams, they need more opportunity for those teams. I would guess the 14-team ACC would vote along for it, as will the new MWC-CUSA merger. Could it also cause the Big Ten and Pac-12 to tip their hands? If those two are planning to expand soon, they may vote for it as well.

    Re: Does the BCS give into the SEC?

    Here is a link to an article.

    BCS might consider lifting two-team per conference limit on bowls - latimes.com

    I think the executive director of the BCS feels it will draw more TV revenue to the BCS....

    According to the BCS website:

    The BCS is managed by the commissioners of the 11 NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision conferences and the director of athletics at the University of Notre Dame. The conferences are Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Conference USA, Mid-American, Mountain West, Sun Belt, Pacific 10, Southeastern and Western Athletic.

    The conference commissioners and the Notre Dame athletics director make decisions regarding all BCS issues, in consultation with an athletics directors advisory group and subject to the approval of a presidential oversight committee whose members represent all 120 Football Bowl Subdivision programs.

    If this votes yes then that will be the end of football as we know it today and probably eliminate the big east from existence.

    People that are complaining about the SEC, this would have benefited the Big 12 more than any other conference over the last 5 years.

    Why should they? They shouldve taken that into account before expanding.

    The MWC\CUSA wont vote for it, that takes a potential spot from them.
    The ACC probably wont get more than 2 anyways so why vote yes when #3 from the SEC could take away #2 from the ACC?

    Yeah, why would the MWC/CUSA vote for it. They can't get in the BCS in the first place, and voting for it would further reduce their changes to get an AQ bid.

    How are all the non-AQ conferences on the committee anyways? Conferences like the Mtn West have been fighting it for years, yet they supposedly have a say?

    Personally I'd rather see a #11 ranked Pac 12 play in the BCS as with an at-large spot, than a 3-4 loss SEC team ranked #18 get the SEC's 2nd BCS at large spot. Just because it leads to more money doesn't mean its best for the game.

    Re: Does the BCS give into the SEC?

    The two team limit is one of the only things keeping the 16-team superconferences from forming. Make sure the 9 sign the 6-year deal before that rule changes... Please!

    The reason that the MWC/CUSA is merging is to get an AQ bid. Once they have the AQ bid, given the number of teams in that conference, there is no reason for them not to support the SEC.

    Removing conferences auto bids is not up for discussion. This would be about somebody like the Orange Bowl having to decide between like a #10 ranked Oklahoma State who'd be 10-2 vs. #15 ranked Florida who'd be 9-3 or 8-4 when the SEC already has 2 teams off the board.

    You remove the 2 team limit and a better Oklahoma State team gets left behind every time.

    And just exactly how would this work? You'd have 7 auto bids out of 10 total picks. That leaves 3 at large bids. You can bet that all 3 every year will be a combination of SEC, Big 10, Notre Dame, or Texas/Oklahoma if one of them would finish in 2nd place in the Big12.

    Pac12 and ACC would never, ever receive an at large bid unless they made it into the top 6 or whatever it is to received the mandated at large bid.

    Remember that Stanford at 11-1 last year was almost left out in the cold.
