I agree with this. Ranking are irrelevant now. Auburn heading the BCS title game, Bama to the Sugar, Missouri to the Outback, and we're heading to the Capital One. Small chance for the Cotton, but I doubt it.

Auburn will win. After everything they've done this year, there's no doubt in my mind they will beat FSU.

Thank you for asking respectfully. I actually answered this earlier, but you may not have seen the post. The higher we finish in the polls, the better, because we can use it as a little bit of a recruiting tool. We can say, "We play in the best conference in the country, and we still finished at #___."

fair enough I will say that if you can say top 10 it is impressive but I don't think saying 8 versus 10 means anything really but I understand why you think that

After years of agonizing about the BCS and bowls, matchups, etc. I finally came to a simple and long overdue realization this year:

The BCS and the entire bowl system is stupid and not worth caring about. There is not a dumber postseason in sports than these meaningless exhibition games.

The BCS is not about rewarding the best teams in the nation. It's not about matching up the best vs. the best. The BCS is solely about two goals: 1. Money and 2. Making sure 1 conference does not dominate. The pool of teams available to the BCS is limited because these conferences got together and decided they didn't want one conference to get too many teams, no matter how many "deserving" teams got left out. And each big conference had to get their champion in, because no conference can get left behind, no matter how poor the team is (*cough* 2012 Big Ten Champ Wisconsin *cough*). So we end up with a pool of eligible teams that have some very questionable inclusions and some very unfortunate exclusions.

Then, the bowls decide who they're going to choose. Do they pick based on who is most deserving? Hell no. That isn't even a consideration. Instead, the bowls decide: Who will bring more fans to the game? Who will have more TV viewers? Which team is closest to our stadium? Which team are we being pressured to take? Which team has the most alumni on our bowl's board of directors? And on and on and on. Every reason under the sun, aside from anything actually pertaining to what happens between the lines of a football field.

The entire system is ridiculous. Why should we care about the BCS bowls? Because the NCAA has the audacity to tell us with a straight face that these games are important? BS! I have realized that the BCS is a complete sham and not worth giving a damn about.

And the big loser is...the chic fil a bowl. They jumped on the Uga vs Miami matchup only to have the acc cry and make them take duke. Uga then went to the gator and now how many ATM fans will travel all the way to Atl for a duke matchup??? Not to mention duke only had a fair showing of fans in Charlotte for the acccg.

We'll have to see if Duke going to Atlanta is a bad thing since that alumnus stepped up and offered to buy all the student tickets.

Watching the NM Bowl.. SEC crew... They have called holding twice in the first 7 minutes of play... Damn, that might equal the holding calls by an SEC crew all year.
