    If the BCS had any credibility going into this year, it completely lost it.

    Nobody should ever be defending the BCS. I mean like ever again.

    Apparently, someone important was watching both ACC and Big Ten football this year and was like "Yes. America wants THAT."

    Big 12 got screwed. Va Tech/Michigan is a money grab. I'd love to hear an argument that it's not. Even ESPN (Herbstreet) said that it was... I don't agree with him on much, but he's right.

    Re: 2 ACC eams in BCS bowls - wow

    I've never really thought the BCS was that bad but now it is clear its a complete joke. How is a system that doesn't award the most deserving teams even allowed. Its so pathetic and something needs to be done. Its pure robbery.

    Yes, but Stanford and Oregon are deserving of a BCS bid.

    Re: 2 ACC eams in BCS bowls - wow

    I absolutely hate the purple kitties, but the BCS bowl selections were horrid!! The love affair with the Big 10 + 1 +1, is sickening. And, as you said - the ACC? the ACC? This is NOT BASKETBALL!!!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    I really appreciate what Kirk Herbstreit said about the BS of the BCS. Just because these teams have bigger fanbases they are in. Not because they are better.

    Really can't argue against the 12 Pac - one team was rated #4(?) in the BCS. The other was the conference champion...

    Re: 2 ACC eams in BCS bowls - wow

    The problem for the Big XII is that the teams with the accepted names were not the top two candidates. It isn't who deserves to be invited. It is more of a popularity contest.
