Another solution would be just to do an 11 game season then and instead of paying some little sister of the poor to come have a glorified scrimmages play FBS school's in the OOC schedule and do home and home's. I don't see how it would be so hard for the NCAA and conference commisioners to come together and decide this year each Pac-12 school will get one Big 12, B1G and SEC school or something along those lines. Reward a good previous season by whichever team by setting them up with Big East and ACC teams, make teams like us, who are rarely in contention get to play mid to upper tier schools from bigger conference instead of having them chicken out and buy out the contract (talking to you tOSU, Auburn and Notre Dame) what makes more revenue, a crappy team getting an extra game with an empty house win against a FCS school or a full house with a loss against a bigger program?
Oh, by the way, my Charles Bronson tapes are wearing out. I have a deal for you, you'll love. I found a set of Beavis and Butthead tapes I'll swap with you for the your Charles Bronson tapes. Really good shape, I don't watch em.......Tempting, but I've both accepted change, and adapted to it. I will stream them straight to my phone in digital quality. Thank's though.
The dirty little secret, and I've followed this debate for a long time, is it's the fans of those teams that can't quite get to the NCG without divine interevention who are really pushing this. It has nothing to do with "coaches deciding" or anyone else. They know that ultimately, it's win-loss and SOS that decides it. Not "bias". They are fully aware that if those two criteria are in, you will probably make it.OHHHHH Soooo close.
If one does not play a BCS team in OOC, then that game should not count, unless they lose, and then they should be subjected to ridicule the entire season.
