BCS bowl lineup and my top five

Posted on: December 6, 2009 8:35 am
 

If form holds – and that means Texas finishing No. 2 in the BCS – this is how the BCS bowls will shake out tonight …

BCS title game – Texas vs. Alabama
Comment:  Got to think Bama will be almost a prohibitive favorite but Texas wasn’t supposed to beat USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl either.

Fiesta Bowl – TCU vs. Boise State
Comment: Fiesta is always thinking out of the box. It becomes the first BCS bowl to match two undefeated non-BCS schools. Should be a ratings winner.

Orange Bowl – Iowa vs. Georgia Tech
Comment:  Pasty Iowans will overrun South Florida and come away schooled in the ways of the option offense.

Sugar – Florida vs. Cincinnati
Comment: Alabama didn’t want to be here last year. Will Florida coming off an SEC title game loss? Also, who coaches the Bearcats with Brian Kelly headed to Notre Dame?

Rose – Oregon vs. Ohio State*
Comment:  Might be the best game of the bunch. Chip Kelly’s wide open Quack Attack against Ohio State’s old-style defense.

*--locked in

Here is my final regular-season top five. You can see the entire top 25 later Sunday:
1.Alabama
2. TCU
3. Texas
4. Cincinnati 
5. Florida

if you look at Cincinnati's OVERALL schedule, it is harder than Boise.  It has to do with the league.  I know that is not Boise's fault, but that is how it goes.  Ultimately, it really doesn't matter if you are ranked 3,4,5,or 6.  You don't get to play for the National Championship.  That is why there needs to be a playoff.

If Iowa is matched up against Georgia Tech, the Yellow Jackets will have a field day. Iowa has not faced a team like Tech and I can see Dwyer putting up 200 yards on that Iowa defense. Hope Stanzi is ready to go for that game or it will be a blowout.

This Dennis dude is a wierdo saying TCU is #2 over Texas and especially Cincinnati.. TCU doesnt even play anybody in the regular season... I could do this job if all you have to do is guess like a dummy!!!!

Iowa's QB will be back and fully healthy. And they did win at Penn State, and the Hawkeyes have a great reputation for travelling really well. I look for them to get the BCS bid somewhere, but there are no guarentees. You hit the nail on the head with Penn State being a big time program with a big name coach.

cincy beat 7 teams from the big east!!!!  thats why they deserve to be ranked higher than boise.  boise would be lucky to win 5 games against the big east lineup this season.  same goes for tcu.  you guys are in minor conferences and never deserve to be ranked higher than an undfeated team from a major conference.

I'm done with BCS Bowls. I've had it with this bull****! They put TCU and BSU against each other. Way to dodge the bullet there. These money hungry old men are such chumps! I'll never watch another bowl game until they change the system. I don't even care about TCU or BSU. I just want a fair system and a chance to see what the mid-majors can do. Just a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They just announced the Boise State / TCU Fiesta Bowl.  This is just a re-run of last years Poibsetta Bowl with a big pay check.
As soon as I finish this I will cancel my reservarions to go to Pheonix and my hotel and car.  I was hoping for a good game against an
AQ team..   Go Boise!!!!!!

Big whoop. TCU-BSU. That is a disservice to both schools. This game will prove nothing to no one. BS BCS still protecting their money train schools. I'd rsather see both teams get a chance at a statement game, not a rematch of a year ago. I bet TCU fans feel really screwed. And rightly so!!

Boise vs. TCU - BCS snoozer. This totally sucks for both Boise and TCU. Neiter gets a chance to prove itself against a BCS conference school.
