    2 BCS bids for the Pac is virtually inevitable, unless Stanford somehow gets dropped below #4 in the BCS rankings...

    I think the Pac is all just about guaranteed a 2nd BCS bid at this point. The Fiesta with Stanford-OSU and Rose with Oregon-Wiscy should both be good ones. Meanwhile the Orange is forever snake-bitten with the ongoing Big East-ACC matchup.

    Wut? Clemson/West Virginia is going to be a ratings and ticket sales BONANZA!!!!!!!!!!! :woot:

    From what I heard yesterday, TCU was only a couple spots short in the BCS rankings of getting an automatic BCS bid (non-AQ conference champ ranked in the top 12 gets a bid to a BCS game). Decent chance they could pass OU and UGA to get to #12, would probably land them in the Sugar Bowl. Outside chance of the Fiesta.

    BCS field right now:

    Auto qualifiers

    LSU
    Okie Lite
    Oregon
    Clemson
    Wiscy
    West Virginia

    Likely to get auto bids for being ranked in top 4

    Bammer
    Stanford

    Possible auto bid as a top 12 ranked non-AQ champ

    TCU

    Other possible at-large (best 1 or 2 from conferences other than $EC or Pac-12, 1-2 get in)

    Michigan
    Michigan State
    Bailer :lol:
    Oklahoma :lol: :lol: :lol:
    Virginia Tech
    Boise State

    think a bcs berth is worth ~17m to the conference ... and that money is going to be shared between all 12 teams, so a second pac bcs team is worth ~1.4m to cu´s empty pockets

    Harris poll will be withheld until after bcs poll is released.

    Here is a theory on how OSU can pass bama at this point:

    At least the 'Eers will fill the place, unlike every other Big East school. This will be the best crowd for an Orange Bowl in years.

    The participating team should get all their expenses covered first, then the remaining money after that should be split. No way should a team go to a BCS bowl and lose money or barely break even.

    Either Boise or TCU will get an auto bid. If TCU is not top 16, Boise will get it as the highest ranked non-AQ in the top 12. If TCU gets in top 16, I assume they'll get it.

    Stanford and Bama can't both get an "top 4 autobid." Only one for the top four. So, if OSU gets in the MNC, Bama takes the auto bid at 3 and Stanford would need to get an at-large bid. But, if Bama is number two, then Stanford will get the top-4 autobid.

    EDIT: Also, cross MSU off the "at large" list because if the Big 10 gets a second it's definitely going to be Michigan. VT needs a :lol: after its name too.

    WV travels pretty well, but will the WV fans travel that far? Clemson will undoubtedly represent well given that this is their first BCS bowl.

    I think the Orange Bowl is going to have their best crowd in years. VT has gone a lot and never travels well to Miami. And this year they finally dodge Cincy and Louisville out of the Big East.

    I'd bank on WVU bringing a huge contingent down there. Still within driving range, and they love to soak up the sun in Florida..

    Yeah, had VT won last night there was something in the works to try and send the Hokies to the Sugar Bowl due so many Orange Bowls for them in recent years. The novelty of the OB has long since worn off for them. Clemson, meanwhile, is ****ing psyched.

    That top 4 autobid is only good for 1 team? That's the stoopid.... :rolling_eyes:

    And I thought they said TCU had to be top 12, but I guess they were at 18 and need to get to 16. That might actually be tougher, since nobody really close in front of them lost, and the team right ahead of them, Bailer, actually won. And I wasn't aware of the rule that would put Boise in if TCU doesn't make it. But looking at how ****** the options for at-large are beyond a second Big 10 team (Meatchicken is probably a lock), I doubt Stanford would have anything to worry about either way, and Boise might well make it even without the auto-bid. Where else is a bowl going to go? Va Tech is probably the best of the other candidates... :huh:

    Go Bears!!!!!!!

    TCU gets a crappy matchup with La Tech in Sandy Eggo. Assuming Boise does get a BCS bid, decent chance this could send WYO to Las Vegas....

    Seriously? Boise-hoax plays in the MWC, Bama plays in the SEC.

    Sun Bowl has been nutting off to Georgia Tech for weeks now. Not sure why, they're one of the worst traveling fanbases in the ACC. Music City looks to be Virginia/Mississippi State. VT to the Sugar would mess everything up though

    Boise. 2 ranked opponents, including a win over an $EC division champ.
    Bammer. 3 ranked opponents, including a loss to an $EC division champ.

    The $EC may have had 5 ranked teams at the end of the year, including Bammer, but Bammer missed two of them (UGA and USC).

    And no, I don't think Boise is anywhere near as good as Bammer. I just love jacking with $EC honks and Boise haters. You just happen to be both... :smile2:

    Is this official? I've also heard UVA mentioned as a possibility for the ACC rep in the Belk bowl.

    FSU-ND in the Champs Sports and VT-Auburn in the Chick-Fil-A sound like certainties. The Chick-Fil-A is the most successful non-BCS bowl out there.
