Default 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.

Feel free to add a link the next time that you jack an entire article.

As much as I'd usually agree with the thread title, he's right in his Boise/TCU point. Like I've said before, if you let them in the NC game, you might as well open the BCS title game to any undefeated football team in America from any football level.

Outside of Wisconsin, what tough teams did Ohio state play this year? Can't wait to see the buckeyes get stomped in their bowl game.

Miami and Iowa aren't exactly cupcakes. But yeah, their schedule wasn't much tougher than Boise or TCU.

Didn't even need to hear anything more, that part of it right there told me that this person is clearly a dangerously insane human being not deserving of the air he breathes.

It's not a baseless point. I'm not at all convinced that a school like Boise State could run the table in any of the four major conferences (sorry ACC).

Utah will be a good barometer of that next year. Until then we really can't say.

That said, they deserve a chance at this point. There's nothing left for them to do. If they get stomped, they get stomped. End of discussion.

Utah got stomped by TCU not sure how good of a barometer they'd be considering that...they are a good team but they were not a top 10 team. And next year will be different than this year, just like this year is different than last due to the turnover at this level.

Because, of course, one game is worthwhile for a broad basis of comparison.

The argument is always that schools in the MWC might be able to pull of an upset in a big game, but couldn't endure playing a conference schedule. Seeing as how Utah is one of the top current non-AQ schools over the last 10 years, that's a pretty damn good barometer since they will actually be playing in BCS conference next year.

Seriously, sometimes I think people argue just to ******* argue.

I'm shocked the Big 12 hasnt pandered to TCU but I think they are still bitter about ******* Ann Richards who basically did all she could to include Baylor in the formation of the Big 12 and not TCU.

My guess is that Baylor would be on UNT's level if they werent part of the the Big 12.

Is it too much of a stretch to say that, if Ohio State were to play Boise/TCU in the Rose Bowl, they'd lose? They'd certainly be "favored" but with TP at QB (that's actually not fair to real QBs...I should call him a "passing athlete..."), you can't totally count on OSU against a legit opponent, which I think Boise or TCU would be.

Boise in particular hasn't just been squeaking by against their weak opponents, they've been absolutely crushing them. They're not a whacky team who gets by with trickeration on offense like they when they beat Oklahoma or like Hawaii with Colt Brennan.

I'd love to see Boise (or TCU) play OSU.

No big surprise here, one of the biggest beneficiaries of the BCS does not want anyone new stirring the pot.

TCU or Boise St. have just as much talent as OSU. They both have great defenses and I bet each offense could put up numbers on OSU. I would love if somehow OSU is matched up with one of these teams in a bowl game this year, nothing like seeing a team from the establishment losing to one of these non-traditional college football powers.

And I'd hope that they'd beat OSU handily too....If the Boise team that beat Oklahama played them 10 times, I think Oklahoma would have won the other 9.

But this Boise team is totally legit, as is TCU imo. I don't think they'd run a an automatic qualifier other than the Big East, but I think they'd have a great chance at winning most of them with a loss or two. Their talent is on par and they've got excellent coaches who have committed themselves to the programs.

TCU or Boise would definitely be the favorites to beat Ohio State this year.

That's also the most realistic Rose Bowl matchup at this point.

I don't think OSU will pass Wisconsin. I think if we see OSU beat Michigan they'll play in the Orange bowl, with the Sugar bowl taking TCU to play an SEC.

The idiocy in this thread made my head explode.

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.

If this is the case then why do these teams even play in the same division?

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?

They don't. That's why Boise's not in an AQ league.

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

In a perfect system everyone that is playing should be able to win a championship. Currently that cannot happen.

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.

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.

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

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.
