    BCS National Championship

    It will be between the SEC representative (Alabama or Florida) and the Big 12 representative (Tech or Texas).

    Any other scenarios are far fetched.

    Yeah, I think you are right. We can root for Florida to lose to FSU...as you said, far fetched.

    Re: BCS National Championship

    Don't forget about USC if the Big 12 South champion gets upset in the Big XII title game.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Could easily be OU or OSU representing the Big 12. Still pretty open. The wild thing is all 4 of those Big 12 teams have legitimate claims at being in the title game at this point.

    Re: BCS National Championship

    But isn't Iowa in the running now that they beat the number 3 team? That must mean they're 1 or 2, right?



    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Another CF thread...another thread diverted away from the intended topic and instead toward the Hawks.

    Ugh.

    I wish that I could use the words "Iowa State" while having one of these conversations!

    Iowa beat Penn State, thereby knocking them out of contention for the BCS National Championship.

    There.

    Oh, but I accidentally brought up Iowa. Sorry.

    Re: BCS National Championship

    Firstly, it's not the BCS National Championship, it's the BCS championship.

    Secondly, I still don't think that Big XII vs Big XII is out of the question. Alabama still has a championship game to play yet. If they were to lose there, you're looking at a whole herd of 1 loss teams competing for #2, including maybe 2 of the Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech or Okie State trio.

    If Alabama wins out, it's them vs. Big XII champion (unless Missouri were to win the Big XII championship).

    Re: BCS National Championship

    Honestly though, as much as I dislike Iowa, I am thrilled we don't have to see another Big 10 team in the national championship. Let thet two best teams from the thwo best conferences duke it out. I think Florida is the best team hands down in the SEC but the verdict is still out in the Big 12. I still think Texas has a slight edge but these last few weeks should be very interesting.

    Re: BCS National Championship

    What if Texas tech beats OSU, OU, Baylor and Mizzou to end the season. Meanwhile Texas Wins by 30 ppg in their final 2 games against KU and A&M?

    Alabama loses to auburn or florida in the title game.
    Florida loses @Florida State or to Alabama in the title game.

    That would mean Texas Tech versus Texas in the National Championship.
    I don't think Texas Tech can survive this stretch of games though.

    Re: BCS National Championship

    I have to say it's nearly impossible to imagine that two BigXII teams would compete in the championship game, not without a playoff system. While I see some serious contenders in Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma, I just don't see that the in charge would ever let it happen.

    There is no language that outlaws it. It's #1 vs. #2, all the way. No exceptions. The voters in the Harris poll will do their best to keep it from happening.
