the whole rating system is worthless might as well drop a camel from a plane at 3,000 feet onto a huge area with little squares with teams wrote on them and where it lands is how they pick them.

SEC champion > Michigan.

Exactly. No one but Michigan fans want to see it. Everyone with common sense knows a 1 loss SEC Champion deserves a bid to play Ohio State more than a 1 loss non conference champion Michigan (who has already lost to Ohio State )

Re: 5 minutes to go...

I am not going to argue this because it will do no good, because I am obviously a minority, but it all boils down to the BCS is a flawed piece of **** program that turns college football into a ratings and money sport rather than a playing the game sport.

by minority you mean Michigan fan.

Check this out
ESPN.com - NCF - Schlabach: Gators boost BCS résumé with win against Arkansas
Quote:
1. Florida beat nine teams that are projected to play in bowl games. Michigan beat six.



2. Michigan beat five teams that finished the season with losing records. Florida beat two teams with sub-.500 records.



3. Florida's 12 Division I-A opponents had a combined record of 89-57. Michigan's 12 opponents had a combined record of 84-61.



4. Michigan's best win is considered a 27-13 victory over Wisconsin on Sept. 23. The Badgers are 11-1 and have climbed to No. 7 in the AP Top 25 poll, despite having played only one ranked opponent -- the Wolverines -- the entire season.



5. The 12 teams Florida defeated finished the season with 11 combined wins against opponents which were ranked in the AP Top 25 poll at the time the game was played. The opponents Michigan defeated claim just three wins against ranked teams (Notre Dame beat Penn State. Indiana beat Iowa. Vanderbilt beat Georgia. The Nittany Lions, Hawkeyes and Bulldogs, it should be noted, haven't been ranked in seven weeks).



6. The Gators went 3-1 against ranked opponents, beating then-No. 13 Tennessee, No. 9 LSU and No. 8 Arkansas and losing at No. 11 Auburn. The Wolverines went 1-1 against ranked opponents, beating a highly overrated No. 2 Notre Dame team (that lost to Michigan and USC by a combined total of 46 points) and losing at No. 1 Ohio State 42-39 on Nov. 18.



7. The Gators' average margin of victory against Division I-A teams was 13.5 points. They won seven games by 14 points or fewer, six by less than 10. The Wolverines' average margin of victory was 17.3 points. They won six games by 14 points or fewer, two by less than 10.



8. The Gators played Western Carolina, a Division I-AA team, and won by 62 points. The Wolverines played Ball State, which should be a I-AA team, and won by eight.



9. Since the Wolverines last played and lost at Ohio State, the Gators won at Florida State (The Seminoles are 6-6, but rivalry games are tough to win. Just ask USC coach Pete Carroll) and then beat the No. 8 Razorbacks, who defeated then-No. 2 Auburn and No. 13 Tennessee by 17 points each.



10. Michigan didn't win the Big Ten; Florida won the SEC. Winning your conference should be a prerequisite for playing in the national championship.
Remember we all agreed that to get a NC bid you must win your division. Well Nate, Michigan would not even have a chance under a playoff system

My whole point was that had we had this wonderful playoff system this year instead of the BCS, Michigan would have still lost their Divison to Ohio State and not been eligible to play in the NC anyway or eligible to be in the playoffs against other Division winners. So how can you argue Michigan deserves it more than Florida? They played two good teams all year and lost win it counted.

The SEC can only send one team to the NC each year. The winner of the SEC Championship. If you win every game except the SEC Champ you aren't going to the NC. So why can Michigan win every game but the one that decides that they are division champions and go to the NC game?

Re: 5 minutes to go...

Auburn didn't get to go to a BCS bowl because only 2 teams from a conference can go.

I think LSU earned their right to go over Auburn. They only lost to Auburn 7-3, and that was in the third week of the season. Their only other loss was to the #2 team in the country. Their schedule was ever so slightly tougher than Auburn's because they had to play Tennessee. Of course, first and foremost, they didn't lose to an unranked team like Georgia.

Auburn's problem this year has been that they were not consistent, particulary on offense. Also, I'm sure Arkansas fans are making the same argument right now... after all, they beat Auburn. Their only losses have been to #5 USC, #4 LSU and #2 Florida... I honestly don't see how they are ranked lower than Auburn personally. Sure, they have an extra loss... but they also played freakin' USC in a non-conference game in the first game of the season.

All that aside, I think Florida has a good chance against Ohio State. They have a very potent offense, especially when Leak is on top of his game. And you'll never see an SEC championship team that doesn't have an above average defense.

As much as I hate the BCS... I think it actually did a "decent" job this time. The team that probably got ripped more than anyone else is the Wisconsin. I don't think there's any way Wake Forest or Boise State should be playing in a BCS game when they aren't.

The Michigan coach is *****ing saying that the BCS is flawed (which it is). He's acting like Michigan deserved to be in there ahead of Florida.

Re: 5 minutes to go...

I still don't understand the issue with michegan. Being a non college fan, it makes perfect sense to me that if you don't win your division/conference, then you shouldn't be able to play in the national championship game. How can you be the national champ if you can't even win your own conference?

None the less, my hope is that Florida blows ohio out the water...and I am sure LSU is going to win big over Notre dumb....then all those saying the SEC is a bunch of nobodies can STFU....

Alabama shouldn't have a problem with Oklahoma St. now that Shula is gone. I would guess the offensive coordinator is actually going to be making the calls now.

Re: 5 minutes to go...

Looks like the SEC has a chance to really clean up if they all play their games. That would definitely be nice, tho I am not so sure Florida can stop OSU, but it will be a good game.

BTW, I think Michigan is going to slaughter USC (I hope so anyway)

However they are a 3 loss team and one of those losses was to LSU. LSU is only a 2 loss team. So I can see both ways though. Just another example of how the BCS sucks.

True, but that third loss was in the SEC Championship, meaning Arkansas played 1 more game than LSU, but I do see what you are saying.

Edit: I also just noticed where Arkansas is 7-1 in the conference, LSU is 6-2.... oh well, whatever.

7-2 if you count the SEC Champ

Re: 5 minutes to go...

Eh, yeah, but I don't think its fair to count that game when the rest of the conference was already done playing. I just really wanted Arkansas to get a BCS bid because they came out of nowhere and made the SEC an even tougher conference. They had a hell of a year from being one of the beat up teams, and I just hate to see them not get the nod.

If done properly, conference records stand and in this case, LSU holds the tie breaker due to the fact that they beat Ark.
