    If Oregon plays in the NC, many project the Rose Bowl picking ND over a Pac 12 team because they get the at large option, meaning instead of 2 BCS paydays, the Pac 12 gets only one in with Oregon. This means an average loss of revenue of $500k per team, meaning no buyout for Embree! Doom!:bang:

    If this one scenario keeps us from making a sound decision, we should just give up. I think we'll find the money if it's what they want to do. However, yet another reason to hate Notre Dame!!

    LaTech may get a BCS bowl too depending on how the Big East plays out too.

    Edit: Hopefully they can score 57 again, too. Those SEC juggernauts.

    That assumes ND doesn't lose. They play SC in their last game and I think they will lose which may drop them enough to miss the BCS bid (especially if SC lights them up).

    USC can solve this problem by beating Notre Dame in a few weeks.

    So CU is now a welfare program? I find it sad that CU is at this new low, having to hope for handouts from the PAC12 to make financial decisions on coaching changes. You are truly in dark and troubling times.:cry:

    Or Texas can solve it by beating KSU.

    I think you should have left your original comment because we are acting like a program that survives on handouts.

    You guys are assuming Oregon wins out, they still have to play the #14 and #15 teams in the country, one in a rivalry game. That is easily the toughest road of the three remaining unbeatens.

    Best way to get Notre Dame out of the picture is for Notre Dame to lose. If KSU was to lose, Alabama might jump Notre Dame in the BCS standings and Notre Dame would still be going to the Rose Bowl.

    USC has a good shot to beat Notre Dame.

    Could USC be playing Notre Dame to get their arch-rival UCLA into the Rose Bowl as an at large (if UCLA wins out until Oregon) if they beat ND? Would be ironic.

    Holy ****.....CU football has reached an all time low, now we are looking for hand me downs. We are truly the red headed stepchild of college football

    do you guys think Oregon has some uniforms they aren't using anymore? They are probably a little big, but just put them in they dryer a few times and it should work.

    ND is getting a BCS bowl bid even if they lose to USC by 80.

    But doesn't the Rose Bowl get the first at-large spot by losing one of their teams to the BCS title game anyway? Point being, if the Rose Bowl doesn't select ND then they will select someone else who's not a Pac-12 team. Believe me I'm not defending ND, but this is more of a factor of the Pac-12 likely to not have a 2nd BCS-worthy team (they may right now, but if Oregon wins out that would mean that Stanford, Oregon State, and USC/UCLA would get 1 more loss).

    If things ended today, the Fiesta would get the first at large selection since KSU would be lost and is ranked higher than Oregon.

    I said it a few weeks ago. This is the year that Texas finally gets the last laugh with KSU. Diaz actually has their D playing well the last three weeks.

    Then I am rooting for KSU to hold on to that top spot, so that the Rose Bowl has to take the next best Pac 12 team.

    The Rose will take a P12 v B10 if possible, however, there is a good chance there is no P12 team in the top 14 after Oregon.

    So true. UCLA, USC, Oregon State, Oregon and Stanford all play each other over the remaining two games of the season probably knocking each other off.

    The good news is that Oregon losing has made two Pac 12 teams in the BCS pretty likely. Meaning we have the Embree buyout now. Yay.

    Still a lot to be decided in the Pac 12.

    Stanford and Oregon both have tough road games. Hopefully both win - that will greatly help the Pac-12's BCS chances.

    Stanford has to beat UCLA in the Rose Bowl this week for the right to host UCLA in the P12 title game. Be funny if Stanford can get high enough in the BCS to help Oregon jump up in the computers and snag a championship spot if the SEC teams or ND falter.
