    Still of large note wrt BSU's schedule issues is that they have turned down both a 2 and 1 deal offer by Nebraska and Texas.

    Anyone, anywhere (except the good teams).

      What game would #1 Ohio State-#3 Boise State lose to in terms of ratings this season?
      Well now that Ohio State is 1 and Boise is 3 it would do well, but that wouldn't have been they case when they actually played cause OSU only has conference games left.

      But sure, it would do very well. I honestly dont think it would make Ohio State much more money, I think the network would benefit more then either of the schools. And the Big Tens profitability has everything to do wihh the ratings because Ohio State gets many millions every year from the BTNs profitability.

        Every school in the Big Ten gets $22 million per year from their TV deal.

          Here's my question... what OOC would be good enough to allow Boise State to play in the National Title game? Where's the line?

            Yes, their out of conference was satisfactory this year. But satisfactory simply isn't good enough for a team like Boise, that plays a pathetic conference schedule.

            They had to have a ridiculous out of conference schedule to boost their sos enough to compete with the real conferences.

            I'm all for Boise playing for the title, as long as they don't get handed the soot over a team that deserves it more. The BCS wont let that happen, so I don't know why I give a damn.

              Hear, hear, more of this, smoothy.

              I would love to see college FB's flavor of the month boutique team play an SEC team not named Vandy or in the state of Mississippi away from their weird blue field.

              Or a Pac 10 team not from the state of Washington. Half their team is from CA anyway.

                So your Alabama Crimson Tide getting monkey stomped by 3 TDs by the Utes didn't convince you Boise State could beat a decent SEC team? Seriously?

                Like both teams from Oregon?

                  Hard to say. If they're one of only 2 undefeated teams left, what they have now is fine.

                  If they're 3, they'd have to have the schedule to hop them. It's gonna be different for every team, all depending on whose left undefeated.

                    This thread is why the BCS works and is here to stay. Because it creates ALL this discussion and promotion of their product. If there was a playoff, no one would care, we all would know Boise would be in the playoff and be done with it.

                      I dont think Boise can't compete, I think they're a really talented team. I just don't think they should be in the title game over teams that have done more to earn the spot.

                        I have always kind of agreed with that, but the BCS isn't making money off this message board, and I can't believe a playoff wouldn't draw amazing amounts of attention and money.

                          No one cares about playoffs.

                          The NFL, NCAA basketball tournament, NBA, MLB? All barely hanging on. Deciding who their champion is on the field and people being happy with that result? Passe.

                          Eleventy billion people watching the Superbowl is definitely not as good as people discussing college football's system of picking a champion. Because discussion moves product and sells air time.

                          Edit: And the BCS may be boned and it has nothing to do with fans, coaches, players, or anything else you'd think of... it may be boned due to our good friends at the IRS. Only the Rose Bowl is on the level with how they operate.

                              I've seen comments about UT, but a quick search yielded nothing.

                                Relevance, seriously? Utah >>>>>>>>>>>> Boise St.

                                Or how about your Ohio St. Luckeyes, think they would monkey stomp them?

                                No one cares about playoffs.
                                No one? Only about 75-80% of fans polled in every yr. I've seen a poll, + heavyweight FBS/BCS coaches, + the President of the US...... I could go on.
