How does that even work? Isn't a team like Georgia ranked above NIU? BCS just confuses the fuck out of me at times.

Since Louisville isn't ranked as the BE champ and has an automatic birth, NIU gets a birth as well if they are the highest ranked non-BCS conference team inside the top 16. Boise should also be right there, but NIU probably jumped them.

BCS can only take 2 teams from a conference..So once they do that, BCS bowl has to take next best available for matchups..

Pertaining UGA & UF, I believe it's constructed where Florida goes over Georgia because of a rule that was put in place after the Cal/Texas Rose Bowl fiasco that top 4 BCS teams automatically go to BCS game unless as we see now, there are more than 2 in the top 4 from the same conference..Florida will be ranked higher in BCS than Georgia, so Florida gets the 2nd bid

So how do you explain Mizzou in 2007? They were ranked 6th before the bowls. Hawaii was the only other non AQ Conference team in the top 16 at #10. But they were not above any AQ Conference winners.

Ohio State #1
LSU #2
VTech #3
OU #4
USC #7
West Virginia #9

Even then Kansas got into a BCS Bowl that year and they were ranked 8th to Mizzou's 6th. I think Mizzou just got fucked that year. I don't quite remember the reasoning for them not being in a BCS game.

Gotta correct myself 1st..Aftermath of Texas/Cal fiasco was no more AP poll in BCS formula not auto for top 4 teams..That was already in place..

To answer your question: Kansas made it over Mizzou because the bowl wanted Kansas over Mizzou honestly..When it comes to those at-large bids, for the most part, bowls can choose whoever they want

And Boise was the other non AQ that year too..that was the yr they did that Statue of Liberty play

I'll be happy when this shitty system is gone. Won't affect the atrocious Missouri Tiger team that is currently assembled though.

It's not leaving anytime soon

Does the playoffs start next year? Imagine if it did this year? People would be complaining that it's not a 8 team playoff and arguing about which one loss team deserves that final spot

If a NON-AQ cracks the top 12, they auto qualify as well. Only works once though, in 2010, TCU, Boise, and Nevada all fit that rule, but TCU was ranked highest.

I'll be surprised if Northern Illinois gets a BCS bid...I thought when Kent State got beat that it gave the BCS an excuse to keep the non-AQ schools completely out this year.

The bowl bids were best described by a guy that was on with one of the local yokels here on our sports talk station. He said that the bowl games want fans that know will travel. He compared to wanting a convention of sci-fi geeks or doctors...saying the doctors will spend more $.
