    Like I said in a previous post, unless you want the government getting involved in college football, non-BCS teams have to have a reasonable chance at playing in these games.

    FSU is not exactly the class of the BCS either. Lost to unranked NC State, whipped by Florida, won a very weak ACC.

    NIU is not the problem, the BCS is. The sooner it dies, the better.

    Yes, that has been the common thought.

    The BCS conference powers are realizing they have more leverage, with-in 10-15 years non-BCS schools are going to be yearning to go back to times like this.

    Agreed, which is why every school is scrambling to get itself into a BCS conference.

    All the more reason to have promotion and relegation throughout all levels of college football.

    This match up would be great in a playoff scenario. Underdog and all that. As it stands, all but one bowl are meaningless, and without an interesting match up, I don't watch.

    Re: NIU vs Florida St. "We Don't Want You Here"

    This should be a good game. NIU will be playing with a lot more emotion and a major chip on their shoulder, trying to prove they belong there(even though they don't). FSU is likely going to try and fail to care about this game. I would like to see FSU blow them out, but doubt they bring the effort tonight.

    ND has its very own loopholes.
    And those rules are idiotic. Punishing good teams like OU because a team from another conference sucked.

    Im not sure there would be a case there either. The BCS games are games that had exclusive deals with the BCS-AQ conferences before the BCS system was created. Without the BCS, the minor teams had zero chance at those bowls. Its not 'collusion' by the conferences to simply package up that into the BCS system and its really the bowls saying 'we have no interest in small time conference football, because the ratings suck and thus cost us money'. And the orange bowl is essentially saying that today. The only real case they would have on collusion would be for a new game (the national championship game) but any team that is #1 or #2 is making it into that game, regardless of conference.

    Not if this 3 and out crap keeps up..FSU will light up their D in the 2nd half if they can't keep their offense on the field any longer than this.
