These matchups look great! I thought Oregon was robbed, Notre Dame played a heck of a season and almost beat USC, the BCS delivered this year, although it was very fluky, they got pretty much all the matchups right this year.

I thought Oregon was robbed,

You can thank the garbage Big East for Oregon getting screwed. Sorry but The Big East wasn't that great a football conference before Miami, Tech etc. all bailed for The ACC. Now it's on par with Conference USA. They should lose the automatic bid.

Oh well I can't complain. See ya in Tempe. Go Bucks! Beat the Irish!

Wow what a match-up. :D

Agreed. The Ducks deserved to go over the Irish. They had a better record and hung in there with USC, which was their only loss to the #1 team in the nation. It's a shame they missed out just because Notre Dame has more fans that will travel and watch on television. That's a bullplop reason, but that's how it goes now I guess. The BCS is a fluffed up system to begin with anyways.

Hung in there with USC?

It was 45-13. I understand they had a halftime lead (I believe)... but they play two halfs. The game was over before the 3rd quarter began.

True.

As for Oregon, it wasn't the Big Least that screwed them, they had no say so in the matter. Ohio State finished 4th and that get's them an automatic bid. Notre Dame got 9 wins and finished in the Top 10 and that get's them an automatic bid.

They'll take their anger out on Oklahoma anyway. ;)

uh, yeah. oregon is gonna take a page out of texas' game plan from the big 12 title game and drop 50 or 60 on oklahoma. but really, i'm not gonna sit here and say ND should be there only cuz they are my team, but oregon fans needs to get over it. i'm getting tired of everyone saying we got our rankings this season or our BCS bid just cuz we're notre dame. they did what was required (9 wins, top 8 in BCS). ok, oregon did get a royal screw job out of the BCS, but you act like it's ALL Notre Dame's fault, damn them for having a 9 win season and qualifying for a BCS game. i'm sure as hell not in favor of the system though. but good luck to oregon in their bowl, maybe we can shut you guys up in the title game next year (and i mean that in the nicest way possible :D )

Actually there were no at-large selections. Everybody who is playing in a BCS Bowl got an automatic bid.

Also, the BCS is better than what there was before that. Under the old system Texas and USC wouldn't be playing each other.

Isn't there a "notre dame" rule where if they get 9 wins they are automatically in the BCS?

Nobody can complain about it cause the AD's and presidents approved it. Well, I guess the fans can.

:mad: I want a UNR and Tennessee rule too.

yes there is a rule for notre dame and their presence in the BCS. the 9 wins is part of it, but i believe if they are ranked in the top 8 in the BCS poll, they are automatically in. nbcsports.com used to have an article regarding their eligibility clause or something, but i cant seem to find it.

If Ohio State wouldn't have been Co-Big Ten Champion, Oregon probably would have got in.

Co-Big Ten champion my ass. I know they "officially" were, but Penn St. IS the Big Ten champion. :D

That said, Oregon should be facing ND and Penn St. will destroy the Criminoles.

I believe the ND rule is that they automatically get a BCS bid if they finish in the top 6 of the BCS standing. Which they did this year. As far as Ohio State goes they did not get a BCS game becasue they are Co-Big Ten Champs they got an auto bid because they finished in the top 4 in the BCS.

It kinds sucks that he BCS finally doesnt screw up the nation championship game, and then they are forced to mess up the rest of them because of automatic bids. Florida St. West Virginia... UHHHHG The automatic bid thing was fine before the conferences started changing around.

I know Ohio State is in because they are "#4 in the BCS poll or better", but Notre Dame gets in automatically because they have nine wins? I'm thinking this is some kinda unwritten rule and it's bullplop if you ask me.

Notre Dame didn't get in because of some un-written rule. The BCS contract says in writing that Notre Dame gets an automatic bid if they finish in the top 6 of the BCS standing. I believe it is thae same for the other Independents also.

Thus there were no at-large selections. No Bowl selected between Oregon and Notre Dame. The teams were already set and the bowls had to select from those teams.

Notre Dame or another independent, or a team from a league without automatic entry in the BCS, can lock in with a No. 6-or-better ranking. And the Irish (9-2 in coach Charlie Weis' first season) got there Sunday.

Damn. <_<
