If Boise State runs the table this year, I think they'll have a great shot at getting in.

Michigan because, well, I'm a homer.

bearsfan_51 05-14-2010 04:00 PM

I voted Penn State. Good recruiting base and good program stability. Also, unlike the in the SEC or the ACC, only 1 team (Ohio State) has been to the NC game from the Big Ten. That's a big advantage for teams from the Big Ten and the Pac 10.

I think its easier to get to the BCS NC game as a non-OSU big10 team than a non-USC pac10 team so i picked PSU over oregon. Was tempted to pick boise but and be a homer and pick ND but I could resists

Penn State for me..

If none of these teams reach it in about the next 4 years, watch out for Clemson.

Their recruiting class this year could be insane.

Aside from that, I don't see Georgia staying quiet for long, and Penn State's another good bet.

Miami could also make a play.

Miami's already made it twice. This is a list of teams who haven't reached the title game yet.

I'm a big proponent of what Kelly is doing over there in Oregon, and although I'm not necessitating that they reach the title game this year or even the next, it's going to happen in due time. Nonetheless, October 30th @ the Coliseum could potentially be a very important date, as I see it. It's going to be a very interesting rivalry to follow over the years to see two of the greater young offensive minds in college football duke it out. Hopefully we'll pull through more often than not.

It was hard to not vote Boise. Their a team who I would of probably been upset made the Title game a few years ago, but they beat OU on the big stage, beat TCU down, continually go undefeated so I don't see why they wouldn't deserve an opportunity to go.

This came down to Penn State, Oregon, and Boise for me. All are consistently good in recruiting and on field performance, all come from conferences that are 'due' for a title contender (USC only Pac-10 team, OSU only Big 10 team, and Boise from the WAC), and I can see either of these 3 teams competing for a title in the coming seasons, as soon as this year.

I went with Boise because I can really see them running the table this year, but I could have gone with any of those.

keylime_5 05-14-2010 09:03 PM

Out of those who haven't made it yet, I think Boise clearly is the odds on favorite to be the next. Can't sleep on TCU though. Penn State seems like they knock on the door a lot but they don't get the draw of luck to get in. In 2005 they were on pass to Mario Manningham from going undefeated in the regular season. Two years ago they slipped against Iowa. They have the talent to get there.

Brent 05-14-2010 09:08 PM

I want to say Boise, but I went with TCU because I like them more.

This is why I voted Penn State. Oregon is also in a very similar situation. The quality of the teams in the Pac-10 has gone down in the last couple years. We don't know if USC will be able to maintain their level without Carroll. If they stay ahead of USC for another year or two, they have a legitimate shot at making the NC.

I'll say Notre Dame. They added Brian Kelly and are able to recruit nationally. They don't have the hurdle of a conference championship game and their popularity would be an advantage if the BCS had to pick between them and another team or two.

TitanHope 05-15-2010 08:56 PM

I'm just going with a hunch with Auburn, but it'll depend on if Gus Malzahn stays on as the OC for a few more seasons. They're recruiting great, and having a great season in the SEC will trump other teams in other conferences.

North Carolina

*runs*

Boise should. They lose Kyle Wilson who IMO, wasn't their best DB last season and he went in the 1st round. They return almost all of their starters coming off a BCS bowl game win. All the pieces of the puzzle are in place.

TCU lost three very good players in the draft in Hughes, Newhouse and Washington. They should win the MWC tho if Utah doesn't contest them

bearsfan_51 05-17-2010 01:35 PM

A lot of people are banking on Boise State doing it this year, because if they don't do it this year, I don't know when they will.

JHL6719 05-21-2010 04:57 AM

Oregon should have made the BCS title game in 2001 and played against Miami instead of that joke Nebraska team they put in there...

I'm going to say Papa Joe's Nittany Lions...

BuckeyeDan17 05-21-2010 11:44 AM

Gotta go Penn State here. Like said before, they're a manningham catch away from contending for one a few years back. Plenty of talent, just gotta avoid the big ten upsets.

Who's gonna be QB'in at Penn State?

tjsunstein 05-21-2010 01:38 PM

Boise State has to do it this year or they're going to be waiting a whole. I went with Notre Dame, surprisingly. I think they have the schedule, recruiting, and talent to make a run in the next couple years.

critesy 05-21-2010 01:46 PM

auburn should of gotten the NC in 2004... :rolleyes: :)

BeerBaron 05-21-2010 01:50 PM

I love Boise, and I'd say them easily, but I don't see them beating VT this year. And that'll probably be their only loss, and enough to keep them out of any hope for the title game, and quite possibly enough to keep them out of the BCS altogether. I hope I'm wrong...hope hope hope it.

I went with TCU on that list. Great defense and run game gets you far, even in this era of pass happy spread offenses in the college game. While I think either TCU or Boise could stand toe to toe with any program in the country right now and have a shot, I like TCU's chances in a close game a little more than Boise's thanks to their defense.

So, with me thinking that Boise will go down vs. VT (not that I think VT is insanely good or anything, I just think they'll win that particular game this year,) I'm going with TCU. I favor them over anyone on their schedule, and while Oregon State isn't the worst team in the world, I think TCU is outright better and will win that one, which is the hardest ooc game they have. They'll go on to crush their division and work their way into top 2 consideration on an undefeated season this year and their history of success the past few seasons.
