Since I'm unaware about how all of this BCS bullshit works, I was curious, since Wisconsin already accepted the bid to the Capital One Bowl does that mean they can't be selected to go to a BCS as an At Large?

If they can go up to a BCS, and Michigan ends up playing in the title game, would that mean that Wisconsin goes to the Rose Bowl?

I just dont understand how all of that works out.

The BCS system is messed up. Have a playoff with the top 4 teams and be done with it.

I will add if Wisconsin didn't have such a cream puff non-conference schedule their wouldn't be a question. The Badgers would be a head of Michigan in the BCS. Get rid of the Buffalo's of the world on the schedule and play someone already. That is my only complaint against the Barry Alverez era.

We would only need 2 or 3 BCS games then...otherwise we would need fillers from the Big East and MAC and MVC.


the big east already?has a bid


And that bid is Louisville who won it with a Rutgers loss to WV in three OT's, 41-39.

By the way, Pat White did not play and was replaced by Jarrett Brown who hit 14 of 29 passes for 244 yards.

What is rediculous is that a conference could have 3 teams in the top 5. If they all played each other like it should be arranged it would not happen. In my opinion if you are not a conference champ you should not be in a BCS game, period. It just shows that the polls and the BCS formula are both messed up.
Yeah well sometimes not everyone plays each other in conference, this year, it happend.

Not likely, since Michigan beat the Badgers head-to-head.

You are assuming, of course, that Wisconsin would have beaten the team that replaces the cream puff? I don't think that is a slam dunk. They should get rid of Bowling Green, Western Illinois, and Buffalo. In addition, Michigan should also upgrade their schedule.

They can't go because only 2 teams from a conference can be in the BCS. If Ohio State plays Michigan in the National Championship then the Rose Bowl will get to pick a conference winner and/or an at-large team.

That's ridiculous. So if a conference had 3 teams in the top 5 only 2 get to go to a BCS?

Do you know why these small teams end up playing against the big boys in non conference...because its how they make money to keep their programs going!

I remember when Wisconsin played Murray State a few years ago they interviewed their coach and asked how he felt about playing in Camp Randall and he said, "Its a good experience for my kids and I get a new weight room out of it."

So whats the answer? Don't count non conference games toward a teams SOS? Thats not far to teams like FSU who play Florida and Miami every year (before Miami was an ACC team) and Michigan for playing ND every year.

I also like the BCS only allowing 2 teams from each conference. Something tells me that if UW wasn't that odd 3rd team out we wouldnt be having this discussion.
