If this were to happen, do you think the BCS tries to take the easy way out with another TCU-Boise matchup?


No doubt. There is no way the Rose Bowl lets Boise or TCU play IMO.
Because of fan appeal and Revenue they get pushed down to the level where they compete fan wise with the other schools in the pool (ACC and Big East). At this point they get paired together.

If I were in charge of making money on a bowl game, I would rather have runner-ups from the SEC, Big 12 and the Big Ten. I don't think this will happen because it would cause a uproar, but as far as money goes its the best bet, so we will see...

If Ohio St goes to the Championship game The Rose has to take a NAQ (either Boise St or TCU).

Nope, This was implemented because a few years ago the Rose Bowl took the Second Big 10 school (think Michigan) and they got blowed out. While two NAQ had to play against each other. So if either PAC10 or Big10 champ goes to the Champs game a NAQ will take one of their spots.

While Im typing here is my predictions.


BCS National Championship-Ohio St -WVU

Rose Bowl-Oregon- Boise St

Sugar Bowl-Alabama - Nebraska

Orange Bowl-Miami vs. Arkansas

Fiesta Bowl-Oklahoma vs. TCU


WVU wins the Championship and the BCS collapses.

Glad you are not showing any bias at all!! haha


Even if WVU goes undefeated, I bet a one loss team will be ranked higher than them

Probably so they are ranked 22nd in AP. Even if they beat LSU they wont have any other ranked team on there schedule unless Pitt gets ranked. They can go undefeated but we will blow it somewhere down the schedule.

Thing that will blow up the BCS is if Boise St and TCU go undefeated and everyone else has a lose. They are ranked so high in the AP that they cant drop.

Also I hope WVU does go undefeated and dont make the Championship game because of a one lose team. Maybe then they will leave the Big East and find a good Conference.
