Was the Big East asleep at the wheel again?
From 2010-13 if the B11 or P10 has a team in the championship game, and a non BCS team qualifies for the BCS, the Rose Bowl must take that team. WTF?
1. The Rose Bowl pays the most $, so how the hell did the BCS confs agree to this?
2. Why would the Rose Bowl even want this? They went from the pick of the litter to getting stuck with potentially the worst team. Also they lose control of keeping the game B11 vs P10. Illinois didnt deserve a BCS bid two years ago but went because the Rose wanted a B11 team.
3. Why couldnt the friggin BE think of this deal years ago? The BE is the only BCS conf without a BCS tie in. Wouldnt it have been nice to be the Rose Bowl backup? Instead the BE could potentially be the last pick. That does nothing for the confs image.
