    He thinks Ill, Mich and OSU get in? Should only be OSU in the BCS.

    Fat chance in that.

    Then again, this is the NCAA

    Ok, what? Ill has 3 losses??? Then MU, KU, OU, and Texas should be in from the big12.

    Basically the only chance for Iowa is that OU loses today, and beats the winner of KU/MU, which would make the national championship tOSU v LSU. That may open up #2 in the big10 to a BCS game.

    A conference cannot have three teams go to the BCS. Michigan has no chance to get in. Illinois might have had a shot if they didn't lay an egg against Iowa, but then Iowa wouldn't be bowl eligible at all.

    Re: Miller begging for Illinois into BCS bowl...

    Michigan got pasted by a 1-aa and drilled at home by oregon. Then lost the last 2 games of the year. They will drop out of the top 25.

    Illinois has 3 losses also. How does that make sense for them to jump all those teams with one or two losses?

    Its OSU and that is it. Their only chance is that OSU gets into the BCS Championship game which moves everyone up one bowl

    Iowa needs a lot of teams in the top 15 to lose, so Big 10 can get Illinois in.

    Re: Miller begging for Illinois into BCS bowl...

    One of the Big 11 tie-ins IS the BCS Bowl. There are 8 teams ahead of Iowa, no way they make a Big 10 tie in Bowl even if another Big 11 team made it (no way in hell). There are something like 46 teams already with 7 wins ahead of the also and 13'ish with another game to play with 6 wins...

    Re: Miller begging for Illinois into BCS bowl...

    Ugh.

    Illinois lost to Iowa. IOWA.

    No way they deserve a BCS bid. And to think...if Illinois beats Iowa...today based on OSU beating Michigan, they win the Big 10. IMO, Illinois is the best Big 10 team - they just didn't show it.

    Yay you Iowa...you actually had a say in something - you won your bowl game already - you just didn't know it yet.

    I mean, c'mon - I have little respect for anyone that thinks Iowa deserves to play in any bowl game this season. Get real.

    3 Big 10 teams in the BCS this year? Seriously?

    Heck...2 would be a crime.

    Re: Miller begging for Illinois into BCS bowl...

    Jon Miller must be sniffing the same crap that Mr Zipperhead drunk Zablet has for the last 50 yrs. Zable has about the most warped sense of reality when it comes to the little bumblebees and he is the one solely responsible for my hate for EIU that will be named EIUCC in the very near future hopefully.

    OSU wouldn't jump WV if that were to happen.

    Re: Miller begging for Illinois into BCS bowl...

    Ok, I was looking into this. How could Ill get into the BCS? If OSU is picked for the nat championship, then the rose does not select big10 #2, they get to select from the top 14 in the BCS.

    Even then, Iowa is too far down the pecking order because Indiana, Mich St, and Purdue have 7 wins and must be selected before them. Iowa is just not going bowling this year.
