    Don't hate the player, hate the game :)

    (despite benefitting from the system, everyone knows I favor a playoff)

    I personally think they could make more money with a playoff system if I knew something was at stake

    what game really matters now? just the BCS championship game is it, all others really don't mean much. there is only one "Real" trophy

    well for me, I'll probably watch UT and A&M and that is it.

    but some live for College football, I usually try to follow just the teams i like

    I'll be honest, the system has ruined once meaningful bowls to me, as a fan. If we're not playing in the title game, it's kinda' like, ehhh.... Yay.

    Even when we finish the season strong we usually don't get to go to the Rose Bowl, which used to be our goal every year.

    And now, even the prospect of going to the Rose Bowl was a let down with hopes of the title game.

    Even when you do make it to a good bowl, the other team is usually based on.....a "BCS at large bid?" huh?

    Since the old bowls don't mean what they used to anyway, let's reassimilate them into a playoff system.

    How about a playoff system where every match is a Bowl?

    I'm a little surprised by the Ohio State selection. They haven't really beaten anyone this season, and lost to Illinois. Not to mention that they haven't played a game in two weeks.

    So? The Big Ten accelerates it's schedule and skips having a bye week.

    Can't wait for another SEC stomping of Ohio State. If they had trouble against the speed of Illinois, what are they going to do against LSU? This is going to be over by half time.

    LOL. Illinois is 9-3 & finished in 3rd place in the Big Ten (had the same record as Michigan but lose head to head).

    They are ranked #13 in the country.

    I honestly do not like Ohio State, but they deserve to be in the title game, or at least deserve it more than the other teams.

    The only selction I dont like is that Missouri beat Illinois & Kansas, but both those teams are going to the BCS and Mizzou is not.

    I think it is fine to have Illinois in the Rose Bowl to keep the traditional matchup, but Mizzou should have definitely got the BCS bid over Kansas. Sorry YTF.

    Why? We have only 1 loss. It wasn't a bad loss at that, and it was on neutral ground. Mizzu has 2 losses, granted to the best team in the nation, but 2 losses is 2 losses. Mizzu had a very poor showing last weekend as well. They in no way deserved to be there over KU. Also, how the heck does KU drop 3 spots when they don't play, and the top 2 teams lose? We should be, by that simple math, be at the least #3 in the nation.

    According to what I heard on YESP this evening they, and only they, don't get points taken away for a soft schedule.

    And I quote, "You can't blame Ohio State because the Big Ten isn't good this year." I've have never heard that said about any other team, in any other conference, on that network. Could be they have, I just haven't heard the sentiment from them before.

    I think OSU is worthy, was just was a little surprised to hear it is all.

    By that sentiment, I'm guessing you believe that Hawaii should have gotten into the Title Game before Ohio St & LSU because they have less losses?
