If OSU goes to the title game does the Rose Bowl have to choose a Big 10 replacement?

No, but the belief is that they would.

I really want an MU loss followed by the Rose Bowl picking up Kansas. MU may very well still get the BCS bid ahead of us though.

I'd assume KU is better served by Mizery winning. That assures they are the 2nd B12 team taken.

Don't I know it. That's the worst part of all of this.

That's a lot of things to hope for haha [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'm just glad there is something at stake this late in the year. Regardless of where we go, this was an amazing season.

the Bruins in the Rose Bowl would be sweet.

I don't think this guy is as knowledgeable as you claim.

That said, the Illini side is a pretty big dog in all of these games. Troll, you can buy me out with just the avatar of my choice.

Also, forget about Tenn, between LSU, Tenn and UGA, the SEC is a lock to send two teams. The B12 is a lock as well.

I can't believe I'm already an expert in the BCS selection.

I don't know why you guys are talking about Tenn.

The SEC gets 2 teams and Tenn is the 4th ranked of them right now.

The best shot as I see it is for Oklahoma to beat Missouri and for Illinois to move up one spot to 14th so that the Rose Bowl can select them.

The chance of someone in front of Illinois losing that will drop far enough has got to be pretty high. Then Oklahoma beating Miss is what like 30-40%?

That's just one way and its probability is independent of Illinois moving up to 10th place of the eligible teams.

That means that 2 teams have to drop behind them.

So 2 of these things have to happen (I think):
V Tech needs to beat BC.
Arizona State has to lose to Arizona.
Hawaii needs to lose to Washington

Once the lines come out, we'll see but I'm going to guess this is >50%.

It really isn't that complicated. There are 10 BCS teams. 6 slots go to conference champs and one will likely go to Hawaii. The B12 and SEC are locks to send 2 teams. The Pac-10 is likely to get the final at-large slot, but they still have a chance to screw that up Saturday. The loser of the ACC title game will not go, the ACC will send one team.

The help you need needs to come from Hawaii, USC or ASU. The top 14 thing will work itself out if you get it.
