    so losing to Penn State might not have cost me a BCS berth after all, considering how high Wisky is up there. Still, I would be in the top ten....

    I don't believe an at-large team can have more than 2 losses. You were already eliminated.

    they were at-large, because Ohio State won the conference outright that year (OSU 7-1, Illinois 6-2). there was actually a huge protest from missouri, because we got in and they didnt. missouri had a higher bcs ranking, much better record, and had beaten us during the regular season. however, since the rose bowl was committed to taking a big ten school if one was available, illinois got the nod over them. (Note: missouri was also pissed that kansas got in ahead of them as well).

    Yeah, I just looked that up. If either conference champ plays in the BCS title game, the Rose Bowl can pick any other at-large team, provided they have at least 9 victories and are ranked in the top 14 of the BCS standings. Illinois had 9 wins and was 13th in the BCS. Ohio State played in the BCS title game and Illinois tied for 2nd. The rose bowl committee chose Illinois based on the traditional Big Ten/PAC 10 tie-in.

    illinois is actually a large part of the reason that the rose bowl was forced to pick tcu last year.
