    Big 10 FB...

    I don't care what happens during the Big 10 conference season...there had better not be any Big 10 team in the BCS championship game...this conference is horrible.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Honestly the Big 12 ain't looking so hot either. Texas is the only team really worth a legit championship team spot left.

    The Big 12 has not looked good...especially the North. I would say both UT and OU still have legit Championship game aspirations and Okie State has BCS potential.

    Oklahoma State loses at home to Houston and they still have a BCS sniff?

    Um, why wouldn't Penn State have a right to be in the BCS title game, if they go undefeated? Texas didn't look too hot at Wyoming, BTW...

    Re: Big 10 FB...

    If either Okie St or OU run the table from here out, they will be in a BCS game. If Texas can go undefeated they should have a spot in the title game.

    As for the Big 10, I think that USC pulled it together just in time to prevent tOSU from having a shot. Now I think the only thing you have to worry about is PSU finding a way to go undefeated and crash the party.

    Because they have a lousy non-conference schedule and they play in a lousy conference...running the table in the Big 10 is not that special and with the fact that they do not have a conference Championship game...I do not want to see any Big 10 team in the BCS Championship...even an undefeated PSU. The Big 10 is just plain given too much respect that is no longer deserved as a conference.

    If you run the table in any conference you will get a shot in the BCS

    Don't agree - Penn State - if they run the table - will be in the mix, and should be.

    They don't play anyone. Sadly, they could get to the title game by going 12-0 with no quality wins and no conference championship game, and be there ahead of a team like Florida, Texas, or USC. Those 3 all have a chance to run the table also, but their schedules are a lot tougher than Penn State's. The last time PSU played a legitimate top-5 team was in the Rose Bowl last year, and they got treated like a kleenex at a snot convention.


    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.

    Objectively, it would be hard to argue that any BCS conference has a worse bottom three than ISU/KSU/CU right now.

    I don't know, by the end of the year you'll probabaly be able to compare those three to Minnesota, Purdue, and Indiana.
