Default Boise State BCS Thread...

This is kind of been covered, but...

This team in no way, shape or form should play in the National Championship game. I don't care if the BCS selects a couple two loss teams, but NO WAY do the Bronco's deserve a shot.

Why?

Well, despite the fact that they play in the woefully bad Western Athletic Conference, and therefore SOS is ALWAYS going to a huge obstacle, they actually scheduled a D-II opponent in their last game, UC Davis, and actually allowed that Jr. Varsity team to hang around.

I am vehemently opposed to top 25 teams padding their schedule with D-II opponents, and actually believe ranking spots should be stripped for doing so, but I can at least understand why a team that plays in a tough conference would schedule a game like that. But Boise State? The BIGGEST knock against them is SOS, so ANY opportunity they can find to play a D-1 foe they should schedule as heavy as possible. I give them some credit for scheduling Oregon, and they DID schedule a couple MAC schools, but UC Davis?

Unacceptable! I do NOT want to hear the bitching and bellyaching after the season when they "only" get a BCS bowl and not the NCG. They should be happy they get even that...

I agree with this i dont not think they should be in the National Championship even if they go undefeated

You can not tell me they are better then Florida, Texas, Alabama and Virgina Tech

IMO this is how i see it working out.....VIRGINIA TECH vs whoever wins the SEC.....yes i said it!!! i see Texas falling off somewhere maybe to oklahoma....and i just think va tech's schedule is more favorable then everyone else's

I don't even think they should play in a BCS game and I hope the NCAA makes them replace that blue turf.

I'm for tossing them a bone if they go undefeated...but the days of them beating real top ranked teams in BCS bowl games is probably over.

IF UC Davis was replaced with a team like, say Navy or Air Force, or even maybe a UConn or Notre Dame, that would add some legitimacy, but they didn't go that direction.

Can't agree more with you guys. No way do they deserve even the slightest consideration for the BCS title game. If they go undefeated, I'm wiith rev, give them a BCS game but not the nat'l title. Heck let them play UF in the Sugar Bowl or something lol. Seeing as how hopefully Bama gets it right this yr and beats UF for the SEC title.

I agree that they should not play in the BCS title game, but in their defense, not one single school would go to Boise and play them. The odds are going to always be stacked against them. Heck, Florida won't even go out of the state of Florida to play anyone non conference.
