I would love to see Oregon play Florida. But it doesn't see likely.

 

But why not? no has has really explained at all why the Sugar Bowl would take oklahoma over oregon as their at large bid choice.

The whole point of bowls is to match up teams from different conferences. With the potential (and even then quite rare) exception of the national title game, no BCS bowl is going to pick teams from the same conference. That's just not the way it works. So what I was saying is that you will NOT see KSU and OK in the same bowl.

I dont care about oklahoma state and k state though lol the fiesta bowl can do whatever they want. My question is why would the sugar bowl take number 3 florida and then a not even top 10 Oklahoma, when they could take number 3 florida and number 4 oregon?

What you are missing is that this year the Fiesta picks its second team before the Sugar.

Plus, when you look at nationwide popularity, I think Oklahoma would have the edge over Oregon which means more viewers which means higher income from advertisers.

The Sugar will get Florida to replace the SEC champ, who will play in the NCG. But they will not get to pick their second team until after the Fiesta selects its second. The Fiesta gets the Big12 champ automatically as its first team, and so the assumption is that it will choose Oregon as its second team with its at large, because it gets to pick first. The Sugar, picking second, will take Oklahoma, and that will mean the Orange will be forced to take the Big East champion to pair with the the ACC Champion that they automatically get.

If KSU loses to Texas this weekend, then Oklahoma will go to the Fiesta and that's who the Ducks would almost surely get.

If Ohio State had taken their bowl ban last year instead of this year they would be playing ND.  Urban Meyer can coach.

i will freely admit that im no BCS expert lol i was just going off of what i read in the ESPN comments, some of them were saying that the sugar bowl was going to get to make both their selections first this year cause of them losing bama/georgia to the NCG. but if thats not the case then i completely understand...not that ill be happy about it.

 

oh and rob...OT, but what ever happened to your mjolnir review?

As an Oklahoma Sooner fan (that's from Texas which makes it that much sweeter cuz UT sucks) I'd love to see an OU - Florida Sugar Bowl but I think even if OU beats TCU that they'll play Jonny Football and the Aggies in the Cotton Bowl.

You mean future Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Football? smily_headphones1.gif

I heard it was going to be 2 Heismans, maybe 3.

Assuming OU beats TCU, I think it's almost a given that OU ends up in a BCS bowl.  It looks to me like the next best choices are Clemson and Kent State.  The ACC is 3-14 in BCS bowls. They don't deserve a 2nd team.  More important: OU would travel better and get better TV ratings.  Kent State?  Not happening.

If the winner of the MAC title game, NIU or Kent State, finishes in the Top 16, they are required to get a BCS berth. At this point it seems very likely that they will.

You are correct.  It looks like Kent State could get into the top 16, especially if UCLA losses to Stanford.   NIU looks iffy at this point but you never know.

Kent St vs Florida? Gator bait. *squish*
