I'm not saying they are the bomb, but they are pretty good for what their schedule is. I think their toughest game left will be BYU. But i think they can do it. GO FROGS!!!!!

They could blowout every game by 20-30 points the rest of the year and still not go to the Rose Bowl.

Why would they go to the Rose Bowl for? Did they move to the Pac10 or Big10 this year?

Isn't this where they decide the national championship? Not a big follower of NCAA sports.

no, and i won't laugh at you like the one above me either. It used to rotate between the 4 BCS bowls. But this year they have a BCS Championship Bowl that's being played at the new Arizona Cardinal stadium i do believe.


Someone who knows- are they still calling the new site the Fiesta Bowl?? Did they also move the Fiesta from Tempe to Glendale??

Good poll Maston. Damn, ill have to think about this. Ill vote later.

I think you guys are a little confused on the BCS's new dealing of the big four bowls. Heck I may be too, but here is how I understood it.

The location of the championship game will rotate like before. Its just now, there will be two games played at that venue. So this year, its the Firesta Bowl's turn to host the game. So they will have their regular Fiesta Bowl which will be two Non #1/#2 BCS teams, and then they will host the #1 vs #2 championship game a couple of days later. I forget the rotation, but I think the Sugar Bowl is next. So the year after this one, they will have the regular Sugar bowl game, and then they will host the #1 vs #2 game.

So the interesting thing about that is there are now TEN teams to factor into the BCS instead of EIGHT. If that means there are two more at large teams, and TCU runs the table, I think they get in for sure. Im just not sure if they will run the table.

Oh and Bert, the Fiesta Bowl (both games this year) will be moving to the new stadium.

Utah will give them more trouble at home than BYU will.

They could easily go undefeated.

That's what i thought. And Trevor, how am i confused on the new dealings of the BCS???

the Sugar is next years championship game, two years ago was the Orange, last year was obviously the Rose, and this year the Fiesta.

oh, and the NC game is played a week later, a FUCKING WEEK LATER!!!!!

Also, in Sports Illistrated they listed 2 bowl games being played between the last major BCS game and the NC game, what's that all about???? Cause if i remember correctly (which i might not) the NC game is on the 8th and those other 2 were being played on the 6th and 7th. Surely that was a misprint by SI (and no, i'm not calling anybody shirley)

I read that one of the bowls, can't remember which one but it has traditionally been an early bowl, is now going to be during BCS week. 5 BCS bowls, 10 BCS teams, TCU's chances are good, but something will happen and keep them out. They could have made the BCS cut last year after beating my Sooners, had it not been for the mighty Mustangs. (Talking a little shit, but how bad do you think I felt when my Sooners couldn't pull off the win but SMU could?!?!).

This is probably the best college football season in years because there isn't one or two teams that you knew were going to the championship game. A lot of top teams are playing each other this season and anything can happen.

I'm not making a prediction, but I wish last year if they hadn't lost there heads against SMU and went undefeated... Cause if they didn't let them into the BCS there would've been hell to pay! I guess they realized this since they changed some of the BCS rules for 06'

GO FROGS!! The only good texas team left!
