This guy that puts out the projections changed them now.

It wouldn't surprise me if they changed their votes to screw over NIU. Its not like they are Boise State, TCU, BYU, or Utah. NIU isn't a sexy pick unlike the ones just listed.

"Peach" is not LSU vs TBD, everyone already knew before today Clemson was already in. The unknown, before today, was LSU

BCS would rather have one bowl go to shit (Orange)
than 2 (Orange and Sugar)

Looking from the rankings, NIU is 16 in the Coaches and 19 in the Harris Poll

Doubt their computer avg is high

There's already 2 teams that don't deserve to play in a BCS bowl. No need to make it 3.

There's really nothing that can be done the two team limit is keeping 4 well deserving SEC teams out of a BCS bowl.

The dangers of declining a bowl bid: Louisiana Tech said no to the Independence Bowl (because UL-Monroe was already there), isn't invited to any other bowls. 9-3 with the top-ranked offense in the country, not going bowling.

It's just pitiful that the better bowls are forced to take undeserving teams. I could understand forcing them to take deserving teams with undeserving fanbases.

I'm just thankful we got a great matchup and a good bowl/destination.

That's just stupid. Can't believe La Tech would pull that card. Serves them right but someone should be fired over that dumb decision.

You are preaching to the choir I think its absolutely pathetic that teams with double digit wins are getting relegated to 2nd and 3rd tier bowls.

Doesn't look like it will be changing any time soon.

Figure it this way with the new playoff format.
Playoff would be:
Nd, Florida, Bama, Oregon

then the "BCS" Bowls with the new rules in Place
Orange: FSU vs Us, A&m LSU or Georgia
Sugar: K State vs Us,A&m,LSU or Georgia
Rose: Stanford vs Wisconsin
Fiesta/Cotton: NIU vs some other at large team

The two team limit in the BCS is just plain stupid, you have teams that aren't even in the top 10, some barely in the top 25, and some unranked while the SEC should realistically have 6 teams in BCS, teams like aTm, Georgia, LSU, and South Carolina are left in the cold while teams like NIU, Wisconsin, FSU, Oklahoma, and Louisville are in. The BCS bowls should only be for teams in the Top 10 of the BCS, reward finishing in the Top 10.

Conference winners have ABSOLUTELY EARNED their spots. You want to play too? Take care of your own business.

Not really. You can lose all OOC games and still make it if you win your crappy conference. BCS bids should be on merit, not conference. It's basically affirmative action and hurts the more qualified teams.

Conference Automatics should be for big, 64 team playoffs like bball
