    Oregon will not play in a BCS bowl before Ohio State...not a chance in hell.

    edit: unless he thinks Ohio State is going to lose to Northwestern or Michigan.
    You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

          Well then he must think Ohio State is going to win out...

          Due to the way Ohio State fans travel, if Ohio State is eligible for a BCS bowl, they are likely going to go, the only schools that have a prayer of being picked for an at large bid at this current moment are Notre Dame, LSU, and Ohio State...and it's because of the large fan bases...the only thing that matters when picking the teams for these games is who is going to bring more money...besides that Oregon would get slaughtered by all 3.

            You don't think Oregon would sell all their tickets to the Fiesta Bowl?

              There are more factors involved in it then just selling tickets, sponsors want teams that make people turn on their TV sets, no one gives a shit about Oregon. The thought of them getting picked as an at large bid for a BCS bowl is almost comical.

                I think they would. And I think they would get killed by Penn State.

                  Sorry, two Big Ten teams will not make it to these above BCS bowls listed.

                  The only way that would happen is if both went undefeated.......

                  Penn St. blew a golden chance against Michigan. They could have made some noise in the upper ranks.

                      Doesn't make sense to me either.

                        They need to remove the Big East automatic bid, give it to the MAC or something.

                          It happened 2 years ago when Ohio State lost to both Michigan and Wisconsin, it could very well happen again.

                              And Nate, I agree that all those teams would beat Oregon. But they only have one loss, right? Might be tough to rationalize a two (soon to be three)-loss OSU or ND ahead of a one-loss (to SC) team from a major conference.
