    I think OK State gets the NCG, and Michigan goes to the Fiesta to play Standford. Alabama to the Sugar Bowl.

    Lots of possibilities. Hoping for no rematch.

    12 in the coaches poll is a good sign for UM. MSU also stays in the top 14. I thought OK State had a chance to move to #2.

    MSU has a SLIM to none shot of staying in top 14. They were #9 last week, that is a 4 spot drop. The problem is the computers dont like them, some had them as low as 20 last week. I dont think #13 in the Coaches poll is enough to keep them top 14, since coaches poll is likely going to be the highest they are going to be ranked in any of the components

    And really BCS can only take 2 teams from Big Ten, so as long as Michigan is in top 14 also, I think its a moot point.

    based on current computer projections (OSU 2 in 4 of 6), OSU must now pass Bama in Harris poll by 5 points to be #2 overall.

    Michigan is in. State has no chance.
    the above opinion is not respected by Deleterious

    I am sick of hearing players and coaches who lose a chance to make BCS complaining they are not in it. You had a chance and blew it....STOP COMPLAINING. Especially if you have no title game arguments, because bowls could have picked other teams over you even before the BCS

    I'll take a Cap 1 bowl or Outback bowl for MSU. Sure it would have been nice for a BCS bowl but we lose so it is what it is.

    Now I got a question for you guys on the bowl money thing. They say like a BCS game pays out like 20+ million or so right? And that money goes to each team in the B1G evenly or what? Cause of MSU still gets some money from it then its still winning for us at some point.

    1. They were saying Houston cost their conference about 13 million by losing during their game(they said people are over-estimating the amount and they confirmed it to be around that number)

    2. All bowl money is split amongst conference teams. Having Michigan in the BCS instead of Non BCS. It also pushes all the Big Ten teams up a slot. The worst bowl game is about a 750k payout. So it is a difference of about 10 millions or so dollars, which would give each team almost a million more by having a 2nd team in.

    SBJ: BCS payouts grow along with big shares for Big Six conferences - NCAA Football - Sporting News

    The Mountain West made just short of $13 mil last bowl season from BCS because of TCU

    Although ACC/Big 12/Big East made $21 mil for only one team in it and Big Ten/Pac 10/SEC got $27 mil for having two teams in it. So maybe adding a second team only is about a $6 million dollar difference.

    And then Kirk Cousins comes off whiny with this quote - "We belong in a BCS bowl game. I don't know how you can get punished for playing, and someone else gets to sit on the couch and get what they want." Uhm, all you had to do was win and you were in. Plus every team beside LSU has benefited this season by sitting on the couch and watching other teams lose.

    I think MSU is a BCS quality team. But they should have won one more game.

But that aside, I think Cousins quote comes off as whiny. If he had something like "Im disappointed, I feel we are a BCS quality team" or something like that, I might feel different.

So it is a difference of about 10 millions or so dollars, which would give each team almost a million more by having a 2nd team in.
    Sweet thanks J Mac.

    I agree with you, by the way. But it's seriously hard for a 22-y-o, even one as mature as Cousins, to keep focus in the aftermath something that emotional. From experience, I would bet that he gives a different quote 24 hours later.

    I would expect almost any 22 year old kid to say something like that. No big deal.

    It's the coaches crying and whining that bothers me. Kids are kids, the coaches are supposed to be grown men.

    I can't remember a bowl BCS standings that have ever come down to the wire like this before... ESPN and their selection show must love it.

    And I would guess VT would play Michigan in that game.

    I think, assuming it is true, it means

    1. TCU did not crack top 16
    2. VT was picked over K State and Boise for an at large

    Right now I'm hearing VT and Michigan

    Whatever the case, Michigan is a lock for a BCS bowl. MSU is probably on the outside looking in

    Which is somewhat of a shame. But the amount of whining that will go own in-state will be unbearable.

    Nothing really shocks me there other than Penn State's fall...

    Western Michigan doesn't deserve the Pizza Bowl, they were only selected because they have "Michigan" in their name.

    Northwestern has a shot at A&M, especially with A&M not even having a coach right now.

    Ohio State v. Florida has quite the storyline thanks to Urban Meyer. Should be interesting.

    Weird picks by the Chick-fil-A... Auburn makes a little sense because they won it all last year, but Virginia? Odd... That all but confirms that Va. Tech. is in the BCS.

    FSU played in it last year, and Virginia beat FSU. Also I know Champs Sports Bowl has been wanting ND v. FSU for weeks. Wonder if they told chick fil a they would open up 10 locations in Orlando if they passed on FSU

    I'm sure the stink on the Penn State name has a lot to do with their fall. Nobody wants a week of scandal stories associated with the sponsors.

    Sounds like it will be correct, so he might just be going out on a bit of a limb, citing sources he doesn't have to seem important.

    I knew they would fall, but I thought Insight would be the pit, they fell all the way to the #8 selection! They aren't even on ESPN, they'll be on ESPNU.

    There are a large number of "Hoos living in the Atlanta area. Virginia Beat FSU and Georgia Tech. If VaTech is heading to the Sugar Bowl, this makes a lot of sense

    Having already booked a hotel in Orlando (I assumed VT was going chick fil a, and its easy to cancel a hotel, but I wanted to book at team hotel), I dont mind one bit that Virginia jumped us, because I would rather spend 3 days in Orlando in late December than in Atlanta. It will be the first bowl game I have ever been to, and given local ties, I would rather play Notre Dame than Auburn as well. So I dont care that we are in a "lesser" bowl, because I like that bowl better this year.

    Tulsa to play BYU in the Armed Forces Bowl; California to play Texas in Holiday Bowl; Boise State to Las Vegas - No BCS for you.
