imagine being 16th in the country and getting a bcs bowl. frick. socialism. the best teams get it up the ass.
Buddy, this is so dumb it hurts. For one, if you lose two games in a year and are only the 4th best team in your conference you aren't getting a good bowl. That's just the breaks, sorry.
Maybe if we scheduled better OOC opponents and proved that we are legitimately better than the top of the Big-12 or the Pac-12 then we'd have better options, but we scheduled a mid-level Pac-12 team, and a bunch of cupcakes.
Secondly, bowl season is all about making money, money, money. It's as capitalistic as it comes and we are getting passed over because people want to know how the top teams in the conferences match up. That's what makes money and sells tickets. What's going to sell more tickets, #2 SEC vs #1 Big 12, or #4 SEC vs #1 Big 12?
