TopCoog Wrote:I don't want the Big East to be treated any particular way. You on the other hand think the league is going to pick up where it left off and that is not realistic. It is in reality , with the losses it has taken, much closer to CUSA and the MWC than it is to the other BCS leagues. That is not a diss by any means but it is realistic.
It may be closer to the MWC or C-USA as of NOW, but we'll see when recruiting picks up. Logic says South Florida, Louisville and Cincinnati will get better recruits in a higher profile, BCS conference.
1. They have already announced that the 5th BCS bowl will be hosted by the Big East
Where is it stated that the Big East will host a non-BCS team? I haven't seen it anywhere. I saw where they speculated that the Big East champion might play a non-BCS school if the Gator Bowl is given BCS status, but it's highly likely they'll get BCS status. That will probably go to the the Cotton Bowl or potentially the Citrus Bowl.
2. They are also leaning towards excluding the new BCS bowl from the championship rotation.
Yes they are. And did you read the reports? The Top 4 Bowls would go to the Big Six conferences. That's why the New BCS bowl would be left out of the championship rotation. It said in a recent report that the Big Six conferences, Big 12, Big Ten, Big East, ACC, Pac-10 and SEC would go to either the Orange Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl.
3. They are not going to put the non BCS league team in the Orange Bowl vs Miami or Fla State, that won't happen.
I think you're missing my point on the rotating bowl thing. What I means with the rotating bowl thing is that the Big Six conferences will rotate in the Top 4 bowls. Which means the Big East can't be tied to the 5th bowl exclusively.
So where will they put them? Hello......they will play the Big East champ in the 5th bowl. There is no other realistic outcome.
The Cotton Bowl won't touch that game.
Wrong. I don't know if this is sour grapes, as L-yes stated, or you're ill-informed. The bottomline is the the Big East will be in one of the Top 4 Bowls. The reason the Big East champion was considered to be playing a non-BCS school in the Gator Bowl (if it got the BCS bid) because originially the 5th bowl was considered to be part of the bowl rotation. Now, the 5th bowl is likely not going to be part of the bowl rotation so the info you got about the Big East champion in the 5th BCS bowl is outdated.
