    Big 10 BCS games...

    Why do we have to watch this same rerun every year?

    Im loving PC letting his guys fly around the field, celebrating as they are POUNDING Penn State.


    Take away the Big 10 BCS ties.

    Re: Big 10 BCS games...

    I can't understand why people continue to vote Big 10 teams in the top 10. If Penn State is the 8th best team in America, we're in big trouble.

    Unfortunately, this is just USC. They're making PSU look silly right now.

    Re: Big 10 BCS games...

    Ive heard of schemes that would do just that, actually since the Big/Pac 10 are the biggest opponents to change

    Just wait until the second half because the Big 10 plays defense.

    A lot of voters probably put the top team in each BCS conference pretty high by default. Based on how bad the Big 10 is, it's time for the BCS to re-evaluate whether it really deserves an automatic BCS bid every year. It would be better if the Big 10 lost it's automatic bid and it was either given to the MWC or to another at-large team. Then we wouldn't have to sit through this annual Rose Bowl blowout every year.


    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.

    Yup, people said the same thing about the Big East a few years ago.

    Enter WVU.

    Conferences go through down periods. It's been obvious that the Big Ten is not very strong, and this is a good example of that.

    But if you don't believe that USC has a case for the best team in the nation, then you're an idiot. Put any team in there, and they'd do basically the same thing. I'd put money on it.

    Re: Big 10 BCS games...

    It is just extremely frustrating that people KNOW the Big 10 is crap and has been crap over the past years, yet they still get TWO teams in the BCS.

    Makes no sense to me. Until the Big 10 wins an out of conf game that is meaningful, I will consider them to be the 5-6 worst conf in the nation.

    I place no value on in conf wins for Big 10 teams when it is proven over and over again that they do not match up with the nations elite or above average.

    They actually do this. There are provisions for changing which conferences have automatic berths.

    It is tough to watch. I don't like the little eleven; however, I can't stand USC either. I just hope Oklahoma gets off the snid from their last 4 bowl efforts.

    No, all we know is that USC is pounding the Big Ten's champion. USC had to fight like hell to beat Cal, for instance, only scoring 17.

    They would not embarrass Oklahoma, Texas, Florida or Alabama. I won't predict wins or losses either way, but they would be great games.
