Clearly the principle irony that this thread was to complain about complaining was lost on most people.

I guess I'm officially confused, because isn't referencing the fact we played in the Cap One bowl two years ago after going 10-2 in the regular season and beating CU looking at "where we came from"?

Some folks are trying to have it both ways. They want to tell others not to look at the previous state of the program in order to justify where it is now as being successful, but most of those people then want to say, "but look what we did in the past," to justify this bowl game/scenario as being a disappointment.

What chaps my ass is not the bowl its the money!!! Clemson will get 17 million for playing in the Orange bowl while SC will get 4 million. This is why your goal should be BCS or bust when you have the talent and coaching we have at SC. Yes am I happy we won 10 games again but I am damn sure disappointed in how we finish these 10 win seasons. Beating clemson is just another game, our goal is an SEC championship and Sugar Bowl thats it. We have accomplished everything else.

Woody, we'll get a lot more than that, the bowl money is divided among the conference teams. We'll come out better than CU, plus, they won't sell their ticket allotment and the school will foot the bill for that, just like last time.

And it has already been said the bowl money is divided up to conference members, so it's not like CU will be getting all of that 17 million and USC the 4 million.

I seem to remember reading something about how CU actually LOST money when they made it to the orange bowl last time.

You are correct but the ACC has two BCS teams with FSU and Clemson. The national title pays out more if im thinking right so thats going to be a big paycheck for the ACC. I just dont find it right that they get a second team to get that money. We will have Auburn and Bama getting our money along with 5 other bowl teams but come on we recruit against Clemson and seeing them get any recruiting advantage undeserved just eats me up.

But the money will still be the same, Woody. In case you haven't heard, the SEC has two BCS teams, too, one of which is playing in the national title game.

So what is your complaint? The money or the recruiting? It seems like you're trying to find something to be unhappy about, honestly.

I'm sick of hearing complaining about Klempson getting a BCS bowl. Who gives a damn?? We own them and that's all that matters to me.

Yes we do have two BCS teams with one in the NC game, you dont get what I am trying to say. If the BCS was done the right way the ACC wouldnt have 2 teams they would have FSU and that would be it. We dont need a selection committee just have the computer rankings and polls and just go down the line and give out the big bowls sugar, orange, fiesta, and Rose. 10 spots give it to the top 10 and be done with it.

Bingo, why let it bother you? We don't have any control over it. It's the result of a flawed politically driven system, nothing we can do about it this year just gotta make it through till the new system next year without team limits

All this whining is doing one thing and one thing only, making taters happy to see the anguish in some. We just kicked their ass for the 5th time in a row, stop giving them any reason to be happy.

I guess I am a bad fan for thinking this team deserves more than a Cap 1 bowl at 1pm at the same time as 3 more games....

Of course we deserve better, but the BCS bowl rules were in place well before the season started, we didn't make a BCS bowl for one reason and one reason only, our conference.
