Yeah, sometimes it wouldn't help. But sometimes it would. It's certainly not going to be worse, so if it helps once ever 2 or 3 years, why they hell would people be against that just because that other year is the same as it was before?

It's the same thing with people saying the BCS is better than what we had. It doesn't work every year, but sometimes it works perfectly. Better than before where the system NEVER worked.

Besides, it's one step closer to an 8-team playoff, which WOULD pretty much solve everything. Once you fall down to being seen as the 9th best team or worse, you've done enough bad that you don't really have an argument to be considered as the best in the nation.

Your right, OSU won the Big 10 but they went to the National Championship, the Rose Bowl gives the "auto bid" to the champions of both conferences unless one of them goes to the National Championship. If that happens the "auto bid" goes to the second place finisher in their respective conference. It's not really an "at large" pick, Illinois was the 2nd place finishing team in the Big 10.


I believe Deeray has it right Metroid. If the auto-bid goes to the NC game the bowl just gets moved up to the 1st pick amongst the at large teams, they are in no way forced to pick the #2 team from the conference that would have had an auto-bid.

Really? I always thought it went to the 2nd place finisher. :-?

Bagel/Deeray are right. However, make note of exactly what Bagel said. They can choose an "at large team", not any team. There are certain rules for qualifying for a BCS game (the basic two are that a team must be in the top 14 of the final BCS standings and must win at least 9 regular season games, although there are some exceptions and disqualifying stuff that is pretty intense and I don't feel like going into atm.).

For more information on BCS bowl selections please see: http://www.bcsfootball.org/bcsfb/eligibility
