    Need Okst to win out & TT to Lose out?

    The Ideal plan would be to have OKst beat Texas
    and TT lose out.

    Hopefully this would put two Big12 teams in the BCS (Okst and TU)(although, it would help the EIU)
    It would allow Oklahoma to get the #2 big 12 bowl game and ISU could slide all the way up to the #3 Big12 Bowl game.
    At least maybe the #4 or the #5 seeded bowl game.

    Thoughts????

    Wouldn't that bump Texas out of the BCS conversation? Late losses hurt, and if they aren't playing for the conference title the only thing they have to hold on to is their record.

    While we want the best bowl possible aren't we at least concerned about winning the game? If we go to the #3 Bowl slot we will be facing some very stiff competition and that could be a bad thing if we get to a bowl game, get the exposure, and get blasted by somebody only because we slid up a few extra spots in the bowl pecking order? That doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

    If you want 2 big 12 teams, Let Texas go undefeated then lose the big 12 championship game. Then Texas and a north team will get the BCS

    A Texas loss now all but guarantee's only one team from the Big12 in a BCS game.

    I won't root for any scenario that puts EIU in the BCS Title Game unless it involves ISU losing i.e. ISU running the table and meeting Texas in the Big XII Championship Game. I'd obviously root for ISU even if it means EIU going to the BCS Title Game in this unlikely scenario. Go Cyclones and Whoever is Playing EIU!
