    KSU was robbed completely. Boise shouldve got in too but that one loss screwed em over. No non-BCS team will get in a BCS bowl unless theyre undefeated. Its sad but probably the reality.
    My south caronlina gamecocks, sittin pretty at #9 and didnt get a bcs bowl either, we completely punished clemson two weeks ago, and they still got a bcs game. Whats the point of finished top ten in bcs ranks if you are not able to play in one of the five bcs bowl games?

    Crappiest system ever...

    And it's Alabama. Close but no cigar for the Cowboys. They had a great win against the Sooners as well.

    What about the 2008 Florida Gators? They lost to an unranked Ole Miss team by 1 point in regulation & still played in the championship, and won. Don't forget that Ohio State lost to an unranked IL team & still played for the championship

    Period.

    Does anyone even have a valid argument against that? I mean, I've pointed it out time and time again and the only thing anyone can say is... "well, Alabama didn't win their conference."

    Winning your conference isn't a requirement and it doesn't explain why OSU deserves a shot.

    I agree that winning the conference should be a requiremnt, but it's not, so it's a moot point.

    Someone, anyone, please give me a logical, valid reason that a team who lost to an UNRANKED opponent even remotely deserves a shot at the national championship?

    I'm sorry, but while it might be a crappy deal that a team that didn't win their conference gets a shot at the national title, it'd be an even bigger mockery of the sport if OSU were allowed to play for it when there are more deserving teams out there...

    Hell, Kansas State only lost to ranked teams... THEY deserve a shot at the national title before OSU does!!!
    AMEN! glad to see someone with common sense.

    Having said that I hope it is ANYONE but Alabama. That game will be another snooze fest. It will be a game of field goals because of the elite defenses and embarrassingly bad QBs.
    yeah l guess everyone wants to see LSU smoke Oklahoma State 55-7, because that's what will happen.

    Oklahoma State is a joke.

    Sorry i'll take Bama vs. LSU, at least it'll be a good game.

    It's a shame Wisconsin couldn't come through on 2 plays this year. 2 plays are the difference between a Rose Bowl and a National Championship.

    I believe Wisconsin could compete with LSU.

    But on topic, yes Alabama is the second best team, but I just don't want to see that game again.

    To me the only reason this is an issue is because the polls made a huge mistake in only dropping a couple of spots OK.St when they lost to ISU. They should have dropped to 10th at best. That gives me concern that it will be Ok.St in the championship game because its clear the pollsters didn';t want them dropping out of a championship shot.
    It should be Alabama, they've dominated everyone they've played except LSU, and even then it was only because of their kicking game they lost.
    I cant see the LSU BAMA rematch being a snooze fest, both teams have had time to go over the game films and I could seeing it being much higher scoring

    You're absolutely correct. Losing to ranked teams as opposed to unranked teams isn't a requirement either.

    Your example is great... except Florida hadn't lost to an unranked team, there was no valid reason that Florida shouldn't play that game except experts thought they'd get their butts handed to them. They were a legitimate contender for the title.

    And the other gigantic difference between 2006 and now is that OSU and Michigan would have played BACK TO BACK games.

    This year is completely different. The choice comes down to a rematch of a tight game lost in overtime to #1 over a month ago, or a team who lost to an unranked team, and, imo shouldn't be ranked nearly as high as the are right now.

    I'm sorry, but no one has yet to answer why a team who lost to an unranked opponent should unseat the legitimate number 2 team and get a shot at the title.

    I'm hearing lots of reasons why people think Alabama shouldn't play, but there just isn't a team worthy of the shot instead of them.

    Alabama should not play for the title....look at Michigan vs OSU a few years ago...Alabama had their shot to win the division and lost at home....letting a team in that didn't win their own division is a joke....

    and like I said earlier....michigan barely lost at OSU when they were 1 and 2...but Florida leap-frogged them any way even though they were widely considered the best two teams, and that OSU would roll Florida...Ok. St. should be in...
