^ but then there's the argument that with the way it is set up now, every game means something. It's like a playoff game every week, whereas if there was a playoff system, a lá NFL, a team could sneak in and win it all, thus rendering the regular season less meaningful than it presently is.

There's pros and cons for every system. Nothing is perfect I guess.

Except for the fact that the top teams from different conferences never play each other.

The lesson the BCS teaches is that if you're a major-conference team, you should try to play as weak a schedule as possible, and if you're a mid-major team, you're screwed no matter what you do.

I can't wait to see the spread for this game.

I'm not trying to be a prick, but tOSU plays one bad game (41-14) in years and now they can't play at all? I don't get it?

Who, in your mind, do you think should be playing for the MNC?

Also, I do respect your sports knowledge but not sure where you're coming from regarding tOSU.
This is where I'm coming from:

Quote:
Sep 01 Youngstown St. won (38-6)
Sep 08 Akron Won (20 - 2)
Sep 15 @ Washington Won (33 - 14)
Sep 22 Northwestern Won (58 - 7)
Sep 29 @ Minnesota Won (30 - 7)
Oct 06 @ Purdue Won (23 - 7)
Oct 13 Kent State Won (48 - 3)
Oct 20 Michigan State Won (24 - 17)
Oct 27 @ Penn State Won (37 - 17)
Nov 03 Wisconsin Won (38 - 17)
Nov 10 (20)Illinois Lost (21 - 28)
Nov 17 @ Michigan Won (14 - 3)
That schedule is not enough to get a top 10 ranking let alone a title shot.
At season's end you have one ranked opponent, and you lost that game.
You non league games are Youngstown St, Akron, Washington and Kent St a 1-AA team, and teams that finished 4-8, 4-9, and 3-9, and only WAS is from a BCS conference.
Combined with the Big 10 being terrible this year, I see LSU stomping tOSU.
Nothing personal my friend, but I don't think a team playing that schedule deserves a shot at the title.

You could have shortened this sentence to :
The lesson is : Be Ohio St, don't be Hawai'i.

Not being Boise State or Utah is also a good idea.

That's honestly what their schedule was??? I knew it was easy, but that's unbelievable. No way they should be in the NC game.

On the bright side, they are going to be absolutely annihilated by LSU, who's been playing tough SEC opponents all year. Me likey

ETA: What's the deal with the "t" in front of OSU?

Or you could lay a mere 5.5 points on most of the Internet books right now.

Mizzou, Oklahoma, and Kansas would all stomp OSU. What a disgrace.

USC v.s. Illinois in the Rose Bowl...really...

I'd so much rather beat Ohio State or LSU...

Ah, but losing to STANFORD... will do that to you...

Jesus...I might be compelled to make my first real sports bet if the spread stays close to that.
