as much as i was dissapointed to see it "messed" (or should i say covered) up by whoever decides which at large teams play which, this was a good game (at the very least, it wasn't decided at half). very sad niether team gets a shot at a bcs conference team. too bad their wasnt another team with flordia's caliber (outside the national championship game) that they could have split bsu and tcu to play a definitive #3 (flordia) and #4(?). even if they would have each gotten blown out, they would have each lost and would know where they stood against the best competition outside of the championship game.
I agree that it is too bad that these two teams weren't matched up with other teams, rather than playing each other. There has been a lot of talk all season long about the caliper of team that they both are and none of that got answered by them playing each other. Now the talk will only continue through next year or until they play one of the old school power houses and see how they truly match up. In the mean time it will just be speculation. It may even take a couple of games because if the win one game it may be looked at as a "lucky" win.
Both Boise and Utah have that 'lucky' win.
That was kind of my point. A win against one of those teams in a bowl would have answered the questions. Now they will have to start over again next year.
I don't see how it would. Boise St beat Oklahoma, and Utah beat Alabama (they also beat Pitt, but on a year where the Big East was considered down (has that changed?)) I don't see how one more win would change it that much.
About the playoff/BCS debate, I just had a thought and haven't thought about it much, but what about something where if you are undefeated you get a chance to play for the championship.
If no teams/1 team/2 teams are undefeated you use the BCS.
Any more than that and every team that is undefeated gets a chance to play for the championship. Bowls still go as planned as long as teams are undefeated. Once a team gets knocked out of the playoffs they can fill a spot in other bowls. The higher BCS teams get byes if they are needed to balance out the undefeated tournament field.
As I said I just thought of it, but it seems like it we can keep the bowl importance but while not limiting teams who win every game they play to play for the championship
