Sharp this is the best compliment anyone has ever given me. Thank you sincerely. If he is crying I must be writing some really inspiring stuff. Again thanks.

But as I said hard to get up for a game you feel is under you.

Enough with the Jesus comments, please. Sharp, Cowboys, this is not a forum for discussing the merits of Christianity, a topic which is sensitive to many here. Let's please just focus on whether or not the current and future BCS is worthwhile, K?

Yes any team in the Holiday bowl is a loser. Thats what I've been saying. 1 team is going to be a highly ranked team who is let down and the other will be someone who is just happy to be there. Its the type of bowl game you don't want recruits to see you in because it turns them off to schools with the favoritism that get helped into the good bowls.

This is where you're wrong. I feel that as a whole, people are beginning to miss the point of the Bowl games. Bowl games are not simply about that one December or January day that the teams take the field. Bowl games allow for a few things, and probably most importantly is the extra month of practice that the teams get to have if they make it to a bowl game. This gives coaches an opportunity to look at the other, younger guys who will be contributing next year, something that is very difficult to do during the regular, one week preparation time that you have for a game.

Similarly, this gives the players an opportunity to have a great time. Imagine that you are an inner city collegiate football player who lives in Detriot. You get noticed by some recruiters and get the opportunity to go to college at Michigan on a full scholarship. Now you get to go to a bowl game as a player on Michigan, let's say (hypothetically) it's a BCS bowl, the Orange Bowl. That means that you get to spend a week in Miami on the University. Would that opportunity have been possible for this kid without football? without the bowl system? no way.

Lastly, it gives the players another opportunity to compete. Any athlete at the collegiate level is a competitor in everything they do. You ask a senior on Oregon or Oklahoma if they wanted to play on that game for two reasons. If they're a pro prospect they will want to display their skills for the scouts. If their career is done after college, they want to play that one last game, even if it is "for 100,000 people".

there wont be that bad of matchups, the bowl game chairman of the 2nd bowl behind the national championship will choose the next two best. all this makes is a crappy 4th and 5th bowl which we usually have every year.

It would be selected as this.

Champ: USC - Texas
Fiesta - Ohio State - Notre Dame
Orange - Georgia - West Virgina
Sugar - TCU - Oregon
5th bowl - PSU - FSU

those are 3 good games, and watching oregon last night that TCU game would have been good too. so 4 out of 5 is not bad at all.

What about Bruiny here? Don't leave me out.


Thats what its all about VF. I'm enjoying this discussion because I don't know S about Coll Fball. I told you I'm more of a basketball fan but I'm trying to get into it. I'm bound to take a few arse kickings in arguing something I don't know much about.

I just see a lot of flaws in the system. And there is whether you believe it or not a ton of psyshology, politics and favoritism in the sport. Most sports don't end the year in question. The Pats are the champs, Spurs are the champs, and W/sox are the champs. No question. I like being able to gage whos best but in Coll Fball you can't. Only #1 and #2 like you said.
