Default BCS and Northern Illinois Loss

I'm not too up on the whole BCS roulette that takes place, but in y'all's opinion who gets that spot now that NI lost?

Tell me Bowling Green doesn't get an automatic bid, that would be a crime.

Doesn't Clemson have to be ranked in the top 12 to get an at large bid. They are #13 now and Oklahoma's (#17) win today may allow them to jump the taters.

IMO Baylor.

UCF heads to the fiesta now (because it has the last pick) and the SEC champ players Baylor in the sugar

Unless FSU loses tonight, Clemson has pretty much been an Orange Bowl lock most of the season.

That sound you hear is a collective sigh of relief from the Sugar Bowl committee.

BCS system had to go...

Baylor is more deserving than Clemson. Clemson beat one quality opponent all year. What a joke...

Where as IMO we have 3. UCF Missouri Clemson

3 Top 10 Seasons and no BCS game. That has to be some sort of record

Just playing Devils advocate here, but I know there have been threads about SOS.

According to SOS rankings, Clemson's is tougher than Baylor's. (53-62)

I don't care what that SOS says, Baylor is 10-1, and will have beaten quality teams Okla, Texas tech, and Texas (most likely).

Look at the teams Clemson beat...

None of those are really quality wins. Just big name brands that are a shell of their former glory...

And Texas Tech is 7-5 this year.

I'm not by any means defending Clemson, just adding Baylor really hasn't played much either.

I agree but Okla and Texas are at least ranked. TCU and Texas tech are decent

Going by the tOSU argument, the fact that you are undefeated, regardless of who you play, matters.

This...
-Go undefeated and NIU earns respect as they should.
-No one knows how good they are and no one can say for certain until they play someone that is respectable (which happened last night)
-Even in FBS CFB, we need to give the cinderellas a chance...their players have worked as hard as anyone else and deserve their shot

I agree kinda but they play in a real conference they are 9-3 at best. These teams get to go to the bcs at the expense of deserving teams like this years USC team.
