    Another reason for a playoff system. Overrated Big10 had a easy trip to the championship game. Ill beat OS.

    I am surprised by Michigan over Florida though. That was a huge surprise.

    Surprise ? ... Florida proved again that it was overrated ... I had to laugh when the commentators prior to the game were stating that ... Well if they beat Michigan ( an unranked team ) then they'd have to be ranked #1 at the beginning of next year ... LOL ... What they proved instead was that they couldn't beat an unranked Big 10 team.

    I for one,find it very confusing on how they rate teams.Wish they would adopt a better system.It's hard to get behind a team with that crappy way they do things.

    yes rankings make no sense. LSU is favor to win against OS, yet OS is the voted by all to be the #1 teams.

    Illinios made USC look good, plain and simple. Who in the hell doesnt throw a foward pass a whole half?

    Although I'm very happy for the scholl of Hawaii, they really had no buisness being in the Sugar Bowl.

    I think Tebow is a good kid and deserved the Heisman...but Urban Myer is a prick and deserves to lose.

    It would not have broke my heart if Alabama had lost either. Mr. "I AM NOT GOING TO BE THE COACH AT ALABAMA" (many times over) is right up there with Myer on the prick scale.

    One of my favorite teams is ANYBODY who plays Ohio St. so I am defintely pulling for LSU.

    See...I AM an SEC fan and know it pretty well....

    Well if you have ever seen a LSU game in the dome you'd have a better idea of why this is the case ...

    I was there a few years ago when LSU topped Oklahoma ... Oklahoma really couldn't get it together the entire game ... That much crowd noise in a closed in stadium could cornfuse anyone ...

    O Who ? ...

    The Georgia game was just pittiful. I respect Hawaii, but they are for from the caliber needed to be in the BCS,

    I pulled for every SEC team in the Bowls. It has been said many times that the SEC is the strongest conference in college football, its time we showed it. 6-2 in bowls games this year, thats great. And LSU will cap it off with a victory.

    Myer "deserving" to lose? Hmmm...as an SEC fan watching and SEC team in a bowl game, I wouldnt say so. Regaurdless of how you feel about him personaly. I want all the SEC players to win their bowl games.

    Sabin? Alabama? I'm glad they won as well. Even though I dont care for Sabin.

    Welcome to the BCS...
    I wouldn't go that far. Georgia might be the best team in the nation right now and alot of good BCS team has gotten blown out in the last few years. USC blew out Oklahoma, Florida blew out OS, and USC blew out Michigan and Ill in recent years. ND got blown out by LSU and OS in their last two BCS appearance but I guess a good argument could be made that they did not belong.

    What Boise St did last year should be justification enough that a Non BCS conf team that goes undefeated should be in one of the 5 bowl games.

    Boise St. was an aberration. Boise State had an outstanding defense and had already proved it could beat a good team with a 42-14 win over Oregon State that went 10-4 last year. Most of the non-BCS teams that work their way in do so with an extremely weak schedule (like Hawaii's) and the result is usually just like last night. If you want to play with the big boys...act like the big boys.

    Also an SEC guy here. They're doing pretty good so far. Only surprise was Michigan who came out on crack and beat Florida. Hats off to them for a great game.

    Here's a little bit of wishing rearranging to this years BCS. Personally I'd love to see an 8 team playoff.

    USC vs. Georgia – Rose Bowl
    These two are arguably playing the best ball right now. I’d throw Oklahoma in there, but they play tonight and we’ll see if they’re in the same boat. I know folks out West love the Rose Bowl, but Illinois had no business playing USC. The Rose Bowl would be okay in a playoff system, but as long as they rope in the Big10 and Pac10 it’s going to keep muddying the water.

    Hawaii vs. Illinois – Sugar Bowl
    Ask Colt Brennan if he ever wants to play Georgia again. I kind of felt bad for those guys.

    Virgina Tech vs. Missouri - Orange Bowl
    We all know Missouri got shafted for loosing their conference championship game. They romped on Arkansas and I predict they’d be better competition for VA Tech over Kansas whom they beat last game of the regular season. I'm still trying to figure out how Kansas got into this game.

    If you put Illinois and Hawaii in an 8 team playoff...that would be a travesty. Neither one deserves to be there.

    Good lord, Georgia is not the best team in the nation, and that's exactly what's wrong with this BCS crap. You're free to say it and I am free to say you're wrong. There's no difinitive proof and we'll never know for sure, because the best teams won't hash it out on the field. Instead we rely on the voters to pair the 'right' teams, whatever that means.

    I am not a conference lackey, but I will laugh if tOSU walks all over LSU, which I have a sneaking suspicion they will.

    Aside from the gigantic pantload that is the BCS, the teams that stopped playing in late November are not the same teams playing on the first of the year. It's almost as if winning the bowl games is reliant on which coach babysat the best for 4 weeks.

    The best teams don't always win a tounament championship either (ie: the NCAA BB tourney). The team that get's the best break or the team that happens to he hot a that particular time is usually the winner in a single elimination playoff. All a playoff would prove is who wins at that particular time...nothing more.

    Georgia is about 3rd in the SEC. Far from the nations best.

    I think it comes down to, not who belongs in the BCS, but who doesnt. There are many great teams, but if you look at it as a whole, the BCS standings are right.

    I am just disapointed, as a football fan in general, that better games were not played. As far as the "top" Bowls were concerened.

    Congradulations Hawaii for playing in the Sugar Bowl, now you see what it takes to play in the BCS, take your $4 mill and make your school even better.

    Sure if you can say the same of Ohio State. They played two meaningful games all year, Michigan and Ill and lost one of them. Compared to the rest of their creampuff scedule, it's no better than Hawaii.

    Let Hawaii play Ohio State's schedule and if they go 11-1 so be it. Hawaii would do very well to even go 7-5 with that "creampuff" schedule.

    Yeah, but it sure is nice after the basketball tourney that you know who the real champ is and don't have split titles. There may be no nirvana scenario with college football, but I'll take a simplified playoff over what we've got now.

    So what?

    I mean, really....you can argue who the best really is until you're blue in the face. A 'W' or an 'L' is a result, which is what most fans desire. The current convoluted system just causes ridiculous comments from conference/team fans who can claim whatever they want, true or otherwise. We'll never know because the put up or shut up matchups never happen.

    Agreed.

    Its unfortunate that Hawaii could not have been more competitive on game night.

    yeah Okl might be a tad overrated this year and last but there are 5 bowl games and 10 teams. There are bound to be 3-4 BCS teams in there that's overrated. Out of those 10 spots, if you're from a non BCS conference and go undefeated, you deserve to take at least 1 of the 10 spots.

    My point exactly...Everyone keeps saying we want a playoff to find out who the BEST is...not who is the champion is. There is a difference and a playoff doesn't necessarily prove who the BEST is. I really don't care who the so called champion is...obviously some do.
