    2 BCS for Big 12?

    Hoping all of the upsets today land Kansas State an unlikely BCS bid.

    So... if we were still on the same schedule rotation as before realignment... assuming the same teams won the same games against each other... OSU wouldve missed us and gone undefeated if they also beat nebraska. KSU wouldve missed Oklahoma and wouldve come away 11-1 (assuming they beat nebraska\CU).

    You would assume with KSU beating us today that it would put them in a BCS game along with Oklahoma State. If that happens look for Oklahoma to move into the Cotton Bowl. Personally I feel that Okie State deserves to be in the BCS Championship game over Alabama. Bama did not win their conference!

    Re: 2 BCS for Big 12?

    The biggest question for 2 B12 teams getting in the BCS is TCU.

    Do they get up to #16 or not?

    You know Alabama and Stanford are locks. Michigan will probably find a way up to #14 to grab a spot. If TCU doesn't make it, some bowl will be left trying to decide between Va Tech and K-State. Who would they choose???

    Re: 2 BCS for Big 12?

    Yeah, I think so. I think with everything happening (Georgia losing, OK losing huge, Houston losing) it should happen. I think Houston losing got the B12 two and probably got Michigan in as well. That one is one no one saw coming.


    It's all snark from here on out

    WVU is in a BCS game.
    OK State is in a BCS game.
    KSU might be
    TCU might be
    KSU and TCU both might be
    even Baylor might be a possible at large choice

    That's 2-4 BCS teams from the real Big 12 :-)

    Meanwhile A&M fired their coach and Mizzou is praying the bowls don't reject them for Iowa State like usual.

    Re: 2 BCS for Big 12?

    All depends on if TCU gets in top 16. If they don't, KSU to BCS, ISU to Holiday!

    I don't think TCU makes it into the top 16. The only team that lost that wasn't at least six spots ahead of them in the human polls was Georgia. The computers are really going to hurt TCU.

    Re: 2 BCS for Big 12?

    what I don't understand is why does everyone say Mich should get a bcs spot over KSU. Just because they are Mich?

    KSU has clearly the better resume.

    Best two conferences should get two bids.

    Re: 2 BCS for Big 12?

    Why does everyone assume if TCU is in the top 16, they are BCS bound? That just makes them eligible, right? They still would have to get voted in over KSU, correct? Just asking.

    If a team from a non-AQ conference finishes in the top 16 they get in I believe. Only the best team from a non-AQ though.
