no way the Rose chooses Kansas over Illinois

1 loss Kansas will likely be ranked 3-4 in BCS.
3 loss Illinois will likely be ranked 12-13 in BCS.

You don't get it. The Big11Ten and Pac10 and the Rose Bowl are not like the others. It's like the secret society.

Anyways, KU really should be thrilled with a BCS berth because they certainly don't deserve it over Mizery.

I think ASU is most likely to get shafted.
If they make it, then Illinois is out.

Do you think coaches or media will intentioanlly vote teams they don't want way lower than they believe they should be? I really hope some coach votes Georgia or Va Tech like 20th so we have some scandals to talk about. I mean, if I were a coach I would do it and I have to believe a lot of coaches will too.

The Rose Bowl took an at-large B12 team (Texas) twice in the last 5 years.

You do know the difference right?

One was the title game. No choice.
The other one Iowa had been chosen before they got to choose. So also no choice.

Not at all the same situation. They have first pick this year.

one was a national title game, so they didn't take them

Kansas is no Texas

I really think Va Tech has a much better shot than people here give them. They should have the best computer scores for the teams in the debate so as long as the gap is relatively small I think they could jump LSU. People like to argue the computers don't have as big of a say but the percentage gaps between places in the computers seem to be bigger than in the polls.

Replace one Texas appearance with an Oklahoma appearance. Excuse me.
