Get ready then, because this specific matchup is the most likely one to take place this year imo:

- The Sugar Bowl is locked into the SEC champ
- LSU has to be a heavy favorite to win. (what's the line?)
- The Sugar Bowl has last pick this year for teams with no tie-in and Hawaii is the least attractive BCS team. I imagine they travel terribly; I mean, who would want to vacation away from Hawaii?

LSU is about a TD favorite.

I do think it's "lol funny" that Georgia could get in despite not even PLAYING in their conference title game.

Awesome system.

[/ QUOTE ]

Nebraska did it in the 2001 season.

I know. I thought that was funny too.

Just as OU losing their conf title game by like 200 points and still getting into BCS game.

[/ QUOTE ]

Even I didn't think that was right.

Kansas shouldn't get in, because of many reasons. They didn't prove they were the best team in their conference on the field and no one really considers them to be. Out of the four top teams in their conference, they were 0-1 against the only one they played. They were also 0-1 against Sagarin's Top 40 teams. Georgia should definitely get the nod over them, since they at least are considered as good as LSU (or are playing that way now) and were 3-1 against top 30 Sagarin teams.

I would take LSU -17 against Hawaii on a neutral field. If its in New Orleans, probably up to -20.

With approximately six thousand BCS bowl spots this year, none of those reasons really disqualifies a team for a BCS spot.

I think I made a couple errors in my projections. If Oklahoma wins, I think the most likely place for Kansas to wind up is the Rose Bowl: the Rose Bowl Committee has shown they like B12 teams, Kansas is much more attractive nationally than Illinois and I forgot in my original projections that Georgia is a lock. My bet with Troll partially depends on the Rose Bowl Committtee sharing my opinion.

New projection with the team most likely to go (imo) listed first. Hawaii, WV and USC obv need to win, its just my head already hurts from figuring this:

NC: Missouri/OSU v. WV
Rose: OSU//Kansas/Illinois/Georgia v. USC
Sugar: LSU/Tenn v. Hawaii
Orange: VT/BC v. Georgia/Kansas
Fiesta: Kansas/Oklahoma v. ASU/Illinois/Clemson
