    This game's ranking at the end of the season is absolute garbage. Makes absolutely zero sense.

    How does Miami lose to TAMU by 17 (granted early in the season), lose twice more and end up 8 spots ahead of a 10-2 TAMU? Also, how does Arkansas lose 3 times and end up 1 spot ahead of TAMU? Meanwhile TAMU was #2 for 2 weeks before being jumped in week 12 by SDSU before TAMU loses... Then how do they lose in the final week (after TAMU loss) in a MUCH weaker conference and only drop 3 spots while we had dropped at least 7 and then Arky only drops a few spots the next week after losing? Looks like a loss in the Championship game carries much less weight then a loss in the final game of your regular season, no matter how good you have been or who you lose to. Remember I beat Auburn last year, only to get jumped by them the next week when they beat an 0-12 team and I lose to 12-0 Mizzou.

    The rankings are garbage. I don't care who went to the Championship game, but I contend that each of TAMU, Iowa and SDSU has a much more impressive resume than 9-3 Miami, whom TAMU beat by 17 earlier in the year. And this has nothing to do with Boom29 it's just the way this game weighs wins/losses.

    In a general sense I agree..... but the loss in your last game of the season to an unranked team doomed you. If you had lost to, say, Florida when they were highly ranked and then finished 10-2 it would likely be different. I'm honestly just glad that SDSU lost their conf title game so I get to play a real team :)

    No cause I lost to you last season and got jumped by teams I had JUST beaten with the same amount of losses, and then I think you lost in the championship game right and got jumped by Auburn who had one MORE loss than you correct?

    Yeah I lost to #1 and #2 last season and got left out of a BCS game. Auburn's losses were slightly worse and yet they went to the BCS.

    Its not who you lose to, its when you lose. Boom lost early so he gets the nod. You lost to me in your last game of the season so you were doomed Jayrah

    yes..... what I meant was that if you had lost (your 2nd) then went on a 3 or 4 game win streak against the users late in your season then it may have been different. That's basically what happened, MIami lost (to you) in week 10 then won out, including wins over Florida and FSU. You lost in week 13.

    I kinda see what satansangel was saying too, with the top 10 in such dissaray there weren't any clear choices, so Miami is fine, though not without debate

    The drama is fun..... I contend Auburn should play for the title since they beat both Miami and TAMU..... :)

    Consider it a lifetime achievement award for me. This is my first BCS game in all the seasons we've played.

    If you want to look at it on the bright side, next year you'll be in the position I was in to begin this season -- with a high ranking. Then again, whygodwhy1111 not losing three games next year might make it all a moot point.

    Beating him twice in the same year was pretty special.... As long as I can close out the NC this will be my best season by a mile, better than my other title year for sure

    Yes, it would be a shame to lose to me at this point.

    Word on the street is that Miami boosters have been talking to the refs...

    As we speak I am scouting your roster on the wire, looking for weak spots :)

    True, but I've never really had much success against your defense, even when I won.

    I do have my #3 receiver back...don't know if that will do much to change the outcome.
