    BCS decision: 12-0 KSU vs. 12-0 ND

    Ubben just tweeted the following: https://twitter.com/davidubben/statu...92956894466050

    K-State fans, facts are facts. Oregon is debatable. ND is not. If Irish run the table, no way do the Wildcats get in the title game.
    In my best Lee Corso voice, I'm going to say "Not so fast my friend!"

    KSU already has the advantage of ranking on ND. (#3 vs. #5)
    They have computer rankings on ND. (.940 vs .900)

    The only thing ND has in their favor right now is strength of schedule, but even that might even out after ND finishes playing Pitt, BC, and Wake Forest the next three games.

    The one thing everyone seems to be counting on is an ND victory over SC pushing them ahead of KSU, but USC will be a three-loss team after Oregon KOs them next weekend.

    In my opinion, undefeated KSU gets the nod over undefeated ND, because IT'S THE TITLE GAME. The FORMULA decides, not the BCS committee. The formula can't screw KSU because of bias. The voting components can, but I don't see those outweighing the computers. Discuss?

    There is absolutely NO WAY ND is going to be left out of a NC game if undefeated for Kansas State.

    The real question is whether or not we will finally have an SECless championship game.

    Kansas State would lose out on this deal. It's a shame, but they would find a way to get Notre Dame in there.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I completely agree with your assessment. No freaking way N.D. plays it if KSU is undefeated.

    Re: BCS decision: 12-0 KSU vs. 12-0 ND

    This is one of those where they "eye test" should matter, the reason the BCS is 2/3 voting and not just computers...oh wait even though KSU looks much better according to the eye test of dominating a common opponent the media will still probably vote ND in.

    I wish it was a full half computer formula instead of just a 1/3.

    Re: BCS decision: 12-0 KSU vs. 12-0 ND

    if alabama loses to Florida in SEC championship game, any chance two undefeated teams of KSU, ND, Oregon leave bama on the outside looking in?

    Don't think it'll ever get to that.. florida doesn't have the offense to hang close to bama. Unless oregon slips up, I don't think it'll matter what kstate or ND do. Btw, that was the ugliest florida vs georgia game I've ever watched.
