    That's all well and good, but it's not happening.



    Not sure what you're going for here.
    In a perfect system everyone that is playing should be able to win a championship. Currently that cannot happen.

    Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

      I do know, having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it's like murderer's row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.
      Haha wow

        I hope BSU and TCU play big boy teams this bowl season. We'll see how they actually rack and stack compared to teams with real depth and strength across all positions.

        And you can't just handwave their crappy schedules away. The biggest difference between a powerhouse and a team like BSU is the depth of quality players. A tough schedule is going to cause players to get injured and force backups to play significantly more.

        If you are playing a bunch of terrible teams with poor players, you aren't going to suffer much attrition. They haven't had to go through that.
        You guys keep saying you hope they play the big boys this year, i dont ******* get why that is. You guys all think theyre going to get their ass kicked and aside from Hawaii every single Non-AQ school that has gotten the chance to play in a BCS game has come out on top.

        BSU stunning OU, Utah beating the **** out Bama, BSU over TCU....great game but i guess you can say one lost.

        You guys act like its a given that these teams are just going to roll over once they get on the field.

        If you watch BSU play they have just about as much depth as anyone in the country. You can see someone different playing the same position on every snap of the game and they wont skip a beat. But what it really comes down to, is i think that BSU and TCU have arguably the 2 best coaches in the country and that shows week in and week out.



        insert (play a ******* schedule) rant right here

          Like I've said before, it's not hard to get up for one game when you've played a bunch of patsies all year that don't really force you to use your depth and challenge you consistently.

            If a team has no chance at the beginning of the year to win a championship it seems like they should have a seperate division altogther.

            I would make college football more like English Premier League style demotion system. Have say 40 teams across 4 Leagues in Division 1. You demote the bottom 5 and promote the top 5 from each league.

            Currently say if Boise had 3 or 4 top 25 teams on the schedule they still don't deserve a chance at a Championship. Why would it make sense they are then even playing?
            Because in college football the divisions are interested in protecting each other.

            On that note, however, a system like that in major league baseball is a LONG time coming. It's ridiculous that the Yankees and the Royals are in the same league year after year, especially when a minor league system already exists.


            Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

              Ok, then if its not that hard why do you all assume that they are going to get their asses kicked?

                All this being said, I don't really have a problem with the BCS, but this is the wrong year for Gee to be making these statements (which is why he's making them).

                Boise State and TCU have played pretty tough schedules.

                  1) We are saying that they don't deserve it because they don't play the schedule that would expose their lack of depth.

                  2) You are right, a one game season (i.e. bowl game) gives them an optimal chance at success.

                  If we are going to reward this kind of crap scheduling, a traditional power like Notre Dame should just play rinky dink teams all year to get to the NC. Texas should quit the Big12 and play nobodies.

                  We'd have a bunch of undefeated teams that are untested claiming that they were the best and should be in the NC.

                  Gee is an attention *****, and loves to give soundbites. A playoff is needed, if, and only if, we really want to see a vetted national champion.

                    You will be hard-pressed to find a quote from me that says Boise and TCU would get their asses kicked in a one-game scenario.

                        I too did not say that they'd get their asses kicked. I said that I'd like to see them play quality teams this bowl season.

                        I do contend that they would not be among the top 10 teams if they played a BCS conference schedule (minus the big least, they are worse than the WAC).

                        And with that contention, I feel that they do not deserve to be in the NC game discussion. They have not had to earn it. They will have played two quality teams by season's end.

                          Boise State plays two difficult teams a year. The first week of the seaosn, which allows them to gameplan for an entire offseason for their opponent. And then the bowl game, where they can spend 3 or 4 weeks gameplanning for the opponent. Put them in a league where they are tested every week, Boise State will lose multiple games each year with the talent they have.

                          And to whomever said Ohio State and Boise State had comparable schedules, you are crazy. Iowa and Wisconsin are better than any team Boise played. Miami is better than all of them outside of Virginia Tech.

                            Nevada is ranked higher ;)

                              Rankings are not the end-all-be-all in determining which team is better. For example, Oklahoma lost to Missouri, but is still ranked higher.

                              And there is no way Nevada would beat Miami. Who have they beaten besides a mediocre Cal team?

                                no way to prove that until they play, one is ranked and one isnt. No way of proving this. Would Miami be the favorite? yeah probably. But dont start makin claims.
