You're kind of new to College Football, is that correct, Dave?

Yeah, this is the first season I've actually paid attention to it. It always just confused the hell out of me before.

Well, one thing to keep in mind is that not everyone in the world of collegiate athletics looks at things objectively.

For you and me, we want the best 2 teams in the Championship game...then 3 should play 4, 5 vs 6, etc....but, that's not always how it works. The Rose Bowl, for example...they might invite Illinois, they might not...but, what they're looking for is to make sure that they sell out....that the largest # of eyeballs see the game (higher ranking does not always translate to higher TV ratings....traditional programs are a safer ratings bet than a team that emerges from out of nowhere), they want to know which school will do the most to expose the Tournament of Roses and all it entails to the American public, etc. And the same goes for the other bowls as well. Also, there is a rich history with the Big Ten/Pac-10 and the Rose Bowl, so, they always keep that in mind, even if the Big-10 champion happens to go to the BCS Championship game. Illinois or Georgia will be going to the Rose Bowl to face USC, I think. Nobody else. If Illinois were ranked 8th, we'd not even be talking about this, it would be Illinois....but, since they are 13th....it's a tougher call for the Tournament of Roses people. Hopefully, for me, they choose the Illini.

Well put...I hope that SC is given the chance to play the best team available...I think the viewing public deserves that following this recent up and down college season ...

Sure they do. It's just that the object is usually money.

Join the club.

It would have been easy to keep tOSU out of the national championship game...the six teams ahead of them two weeks ago should have won their games.

That's on the brink of being witty.

I'm certain its a National broadcast (except for the Frozen Tundra), but Fox is broadcasting the official BCS results at 8 p.m. Eastern...

I don't suspect the Harris Poll to come out any much sooner than that...they're getting very slow lately...I wouldn't expect any major changes.
