Biggs3535:
It's rumored N. Illinois will kick Oklahoma out of the BCS, which I'm fine with.  Here are the projected BCS Bowls:

Orange:  Florida State v. N. Illinois
Fiesta:  Kansas State v. Oregon
Sugar:  Florida v. Louisville (pretty cool for Charlie Strong)
Rose:  Stanford v. Wisconsin

Championship:  Notre Dame v. Alabama

GameTime:
heard kent state might, didnt realize n illinois would as well.  orange bowl better hope they travel!  UF louisville would be interesting because of the strong connection...but oregon needs a better opponent imo.  too bad it wont happen.

rpc1978:
i agree with saban, its weird how the system works.  NIU gets a BCS game but Georgia and Oklahoma don't. 

GameTime:
herbstreit is fired up about NIU making it, and rightfully so.  good thing the system is going out the window next year.

olafberserker:
I don't know if I agree with it or not, but teams like NIU, Kent State, and such are at an inherent disadvantage because of the way the system is set up.

are they really?  NIU's signature wins were kansas and kent state.  kent states signatures wins were rutgers and bowling green.  how is that a disadvantage?

Then how can you make this statement: "herbstreit is fired up about NIU making it, and rightfully so.  good thing the system is going out the window next year."  Florida State's only signature win is Clemson... who's only signature win is... TBD?  Louisville doesn't have any wins vs ranked opponents either.  Kent State and Northern Illinois have more combined wins against top 25 teams (2) than Florida State, Clemson, and Louisville (1) combined.

rarely ranked to start season, they play in a mid-major conference so they are not going to have the opportunity to have as many "signature" wins

Strength of Schedule of BCS Bowl teams:

Florida State - 69
Louisville - 89
Kent State - 116
Northern Illinois - 127


Strength of Schedule of non-BCS Bowl teams:

Oklahoma - 5
Georgia - 41

olafberserker:
What was Boise State's strength of schedule the year they beat Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl?   West Virginia's the year they beat Georgia in the Sugar Bowl?


Trust me. I'd rather see an Orange Bowl matchup of Oklahoma vs. Florida State, but why play in the FBS (or whatever it's called) if your a team like Kent State or Northern Illinois and you have no shot at play in the big game (s)?
