    E Gordon Gee

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Even if TCU and Boise State run the table, they still don't deserve to be in the Bowl Championship Series title game, Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee said Wednesday.

    In an interview with The Associated Press, the president at the university with the largest athletic program in the country said that TCU and Boise State do not face a difficult enough schedule to play in the national championship game.

    Gee, long an admirer of the BCS and the current bowl system, said he was against a playoff in the Football Bowl Subdivision because it was "a slippery slope to professionalism."

    A former president at West Virginia, Colorado, Brown and Vanderbilt universities, Gee said he favored the "mixed-up mystery" of the current system.

    Haha, SickWitIt neg repped me on this post and simply said "Get a clue." I guess we know his intellectual capacity is limitless!

    Big East has a lot more depth though, it is a big pile of steaming mediocre teams, none with realistic title ambitions and none that are so truly horrible that you question their existence.
    While I have been known as a Mountain West supporter on this board I have to say that even with the addition of Boise St., Fresno St., and Nevada to the MWC when TCU was still a part of it would NOT have been a better conference than the Big East. While, for the most part, the Big East has eight mediocre teams in it with the cream of the crop being West Virginia the MWC would have had two or three top teams (Boise St., TCU, maybe Nevada) but then a bunch of horrible teams (New Mexico, Wyoming, UNLV, San Diego State, Colorado State) that would get hosed by any Big East school.

    The Big East just plays a tougher strength of schedule on average than any Mountain West school and while it was fun rooting for the underdog MWC to get a BCS bid when Utah, BYU, and TCU were in it, those three schools realized that the old saying "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" is true and that is exactly what they have done. Blame Craig Thompson, Mountain West commissioner, for not inviting Boise State, Nevada, and Fresno State sooner. If he would have invited those schools 2-3 years ago then the MWC would have had a title game and more than likely a BCS bid.

    Well I guess Utah is leaving aren't they? BYU as well if I'm not mistaken. Still it's a lot closer than one would think between a non-AQ and an AQ conference.

    Well, they are going to the Big East now. They obviously are high profile enough to not have to do some type of compensation model. I don't knock TCU for not taking games against huge schools without those schools giving them a home game back. It's not an issue anymore.
    As of 2009 it wasn't obvious. That's certain. Also, it's always about the money.

    I'm glad that TCU is joining the Least. Win/Win IMO.

    Great quote: "They don't play the games on paper, son."

    Let's just skip the NFL playoffs, and let's put the highest rated team from each conference into the Super Bowl, and base the rankings off Don Banks, Chris Mortenson, Peter King, and Apple's rankings.

    No playoffs in college football (somehow there is in lower classes) is one of the most corrupt, wrong, backwards-assed rules in America today.

    So what is your point? TCU backed out of an open date that OSU had to fill with Navy.

    TCU pusses out against an elite team and then whines about not being able to play the big boys after their schedule is questioned.

    TCU: Anytime, anywhere, except when we don't feel like it?

    These teams have to come up with some sort of compensation model if they want a home and home with the big teams that bring in millions of dollars per home game.

    Errrr, Ohio State wouldn't do a home and home while LSU would for 2012-2013. I understand TCU then just went to Clemson for one year only, but I can understand the hesitation with the money involved bringing tOSU in.

    BTW, lost in the BSU/TCU vs OSU comments, is the fact that TCU backed out of a game last season vs OSU.

    TCU = Wimps
