    Dumb.

    They will get absolutely slaughtered.

    Also, there is only one BCS buster. Utah busted the BCS and changed the rules forever. Can't bust something thats already been busted. Crazy to think how hard it was to qualify for a BCS back then as compared to now.

    Northern Illinois made it to a BCS game before byu lol.

    No, it's not that, I'm usually up past 10:30 anyways.

    I just refuse to get into this Northern Illinois debate with you again.

    It's like a dog chasing it's tail.

    As a Utahn, I was happy when UofU got in. I guess I can be happy for those attached to NIU as well.

    Good. The jackasses who created the BCS made it so the non-AQ teams have to jump through a bunch of hoops just to get in their little club, and then have the arrogance to whine about it when a team jumps through the hoops. It's sweet to see.

    What I don't get is why noone showed up to Utah Senator Orrin Hatch's investigation if this is such a big deal. I'm no fan of the BCS and want that to be clear. IMO it should be 4 or so regions with their own system deciding which club deserves a shot at a national title. Put these regions in competition with each other for the best formula.

    The hoops to jump through now are at least 400,000,479x easier than they were in 04' when Utah busted the BCS.

    If you're a non-BCS school it should take an awesome season to make a BCS game. Not a mediocre season like NIU.

    Yeah, unfortunately for the big boys most teams this year had mediocre seasons, enough to launch NIU into the top 16, so this year mediocre is a relative term. There is a 5 loss team making the Rose Bowl this year for chrissakes.

    Ya, but it's retarded that NIU gets in over Oklahoma because the Big East sucks.

    HUH?

    Leave the Big East team out in this scenario.

    The elites made the rules. Now they are reaping what they sow. It's stupid that Wisconsin is making the Rose Bowl with 5 losses, but hey, tradition is tradition I guess.

    Not really tradition.

    They made it because they won the Big Ten Championship game. That games only in it's 2nd year.

    Also, Wisconsin was only in the game because the two teams ahead of them in the standings (Ohio St & Penn St) have Post Season sanctions.
