Looking at the BCS rules of selection, there is an important stipulation:

C. When two bowls lose host teams, then the bowl losing the number one team may not select a replacement team from the same Conference as the number two team, unless the bowl losing the number two team consents

Basically, this means that if LSU plays OSU, the Rose can't pick Georgia, even though they have the first pick for a replacement and Georgia is not tied to the Sugar Bowl. The Sugar would obviously not consent and the Rose would end up with USC vs. Kansas/Illinois rather than USC vs. Georgia. The implication there would be that USC vs. Georgia could make a serious claim for being the AP championship game.

Sooner or later Big East fanboys will have to admit that their conference is 3nd rate

Thanks, because it should be considered a sin to root for the conference that your favorite time is in, especially because the BE should be in the same breath as the WAC, Sun Belt, and MAC.

Ahhh, so it's guaranteed that the state of Ohio will win the MNC? Damn Sabathia being such a good OL.

If LSU slips into the NT game I am going to be sick. This is the first year the entire system is disgusting me. Not that the BCS hasn't had bad years before, but this year there is just no way it can work out in a positive way, and the "bcs national champion" should (and will) mean nothing.
