    Undefeated!

    I have a strong feeling that Ball St is going to be left out in the cold when it comes to bowl game nominations even though they will probably end the season undefeated (left on the schedule is Western Michigan and the MAC Championship which will probably be against Buffalo).

    Too bad really, I have watched some of their games this year and they are a good looking team.

    Sucks for Ball St, but imagine being Boise St, being undefeated and in the top 10 BCS and you've gotta settle for whatever bowl the WAC champion ends up in when someone like Cincinnati, North Carolina, etc., ends up in a BCS game when almost everyone in America knows Boise St could pound either the Big East or ACC champion into oblivion...

    Re: Undefeated!

    What about Utah? They have defeated a couple of top 25 teams this year and are undefeated and will likely get left out of the BCS.

    They will be in the BCS, just not the national title.

    No they won't - the highest-rated non-BCS school that finishes the season in the BCS top 10 earns an at-large BCS bid. A second non-BCS school can also earn a bid, but unfortunately once again the BCS would rather see Ohio St get embarrassed on a national stage than to see another round of "upset magic" by Boise St.

    Re: Undefeated!

    I would love to see a Utah vs. Boise State matchup. That would be perfect justice IMO.

    I would love to see:
    1. Penn State vs. USC - Rose
    2. OU/Texas vs. Bama/Florida - Championship
    3. OU/Texas vs. Bama/Florida - Sugar/Fiesta
    4. Crap Big East vs. Crap ACC Orange
    5. Utah vs. Boise State - Sugar/Fiesta

    Now those would be some intriguing BCS matchups!

    Unfortunately, I think the Fiesta and Sugar are each guaranteed a Big 12 and SEC team respectively. (That completely blows IMO, and avoids awesome matchups that could and should happen)

    Instead, OU/Texas will get Utah in the Fiesta, and Bama/Florida will get Ohio State/USC in the Sugar. Crap Crap Crap.

    Look at the teams that Ball State beat:

    Northeastern: 2-10
    Navy:6-4
    Akron: 5-6
    Indiana: 3-9
    Kent State: 3-8
    Toledo: 3-8
    Western Kentucky: 2-9
    Eastern Michigan: 2-9
    Northern Illinois: 6-5
    Miami (OH): 2-9
    Central Michigan: 8-3

    I know its hard to go undefeated but that schedule isn't exactly a gauntlet.

    What is our record if this was our schedule this year? I would say 7-4

    7-4?

    I would say we would be 5-6 at best with wins over Northeastern, Kent St, Western Kentucky, Eastern Michigan and Miami (OH) and IMO, 5-6 is being generous!

    Or that "magic whatever" that Hawaii tried to bring against Georgia last year.

    Yeah, that wasn't the most "awesome" game ever, but I didn't think Hawaii was going to win that game either. It certainly didn't help matters that Hawaii drew Georgia, a team that honestly felt that they got screwed out of the BCS championship game and was out to punish whoever got paired up against them. Hawaii was nothing but a sacrificial lamb in that game. I think Georgia does the same kind of damage to whoever they end up playing in the Sugar Bowl last year, be it West Virginia, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Illinois, or even LSU or Ohio St. I think the only team that would have given Georgia a "game" in last year's BCS was USC, who themselves thoroughly dismantled Illinois (they were feeling the same kind of "snub").
