    Re: Northern Illinois to the Orange Bowl

    My issue is NIU is getting in not on their own merit - but due to 2 conference champs being average, "unranked" teams.


    As a result, NIU gets in and another conference gets screwed - even though that conference is very strong.


    Bad conference - rewarded
    Slightly above average non-AQ team - rewarded
    Good conference - punished

    Worst ever BCS team if true?

    I think I'll take FSU to cover.

    Why does it seem the conference that gets screwed is always the BIG XII? Two years in a row now. Bowls are fun and everything and I am in favor of them over playoffs, but the people that vote on the top 25 need to stop voting based on W-L, and vote on the teams overall actual play. No reason ANY non-bcs team should be top 25 this year


    Life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think

    Re: Northern Illinois to the Orange Bowl

    If true, I'll be cheering for FSU to drop 70 on them. Just ridiculous.

    Lose on a "neutral" field to a terrible Iowa team, play in BCS game.
