Panther,thanks for the post.

BCS Administrator's comments tend to support prior notion that the so-called "Louisville Loophole" rules would apply to any MWC changes made prior to 7-1-2010.

How much gasoline does this pour on a BSU to MWC move?

Some of the BCS Autobid math appears to be "hazy" at this time.It sure would be helpful if the BCS would release all pertinent BCS autobid info.Here is website that tries to track BCS Autobid Conference and Team data at http://www.bcsguru.com/2009_bcs_qualifier.htm

Thanks
Freaked

Final 2009 BCS poll.
Looks like top MWC/WAC teams did pretty well this year.
Fiesta Bowl will include TCU and Boise State.Link at http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/football/bcs.htm

I'm happy for TCU and Boise State, in as much as they will each earn a share of BCS $$$ to split with their conference mates.

However, I'm saddened that neither those teams nor Cincinnati gets to take a shot at winning the National Championship (since that would require a playoff of sorts).

Since Boise State seems to be the perrenial threat to run the table in the WAC and grab a BCS at-large spot, I almost expect the BCS to offer an automatic qualifier to the MWC, PROVIDED they expand by inviting Boise State. That way this year's scenario could not be repeated, as Boise State and TCU would play head-to-head and WAC would be weakened. So the MWC Champ would get in, but the 2 at-larges that go to the MWC and WAC this year would become one, leaving an extra at-large to the "power conferences". Why am I so cynical ? Does anyone else follow this logic and expect the same ?

If the Southland or any conference for that matter tries to move up to FBS I see that happening so the power conferences can protect their majority. Add another mid-major conference and you have a six-six split. Not good for the power conferences so I would expect them to add the Mountain West to their side. And possibly add the biggest other mid-major to protect themselves. If that happens we might nit see a playoff in our lifetimes. It would remove the power conferences' biggest threats.

That one precious second Texas got back vs Nebraska certainly impacted much. It kept a probable MWC team (TCU) out of the National Championship game (ok, acknowledging Cincy would have been a prime candidate also with poll shifts). It would have made the MWC autobid case so much stronger for the future, and even stronger if they'd win the game. A lot of implications for just one second. Had Nebraska been in that situation, wonder if the second would have been granted? Not saying Texas didn't deserve it; the official time keeper is the one that fully knows, and he made his ruling. Nevertheless, it's a judgment call, that they took a second look at; and from outward appearances (TV and what was stated later), seems worthy of being called correct.

That Alabama/Florida winner vs Texas seemed planned from the early weeks of the season, and some officiating, in close situations, throughout the season seemed friendly to the concept. And of course, in the very early part of the season, USC was once again being called things, by some sports figures, like "team of the millenium", only to get pounded within their own conference shortly thereafter. The expectations game with favorites often gets over-stated or helps facilitate a prophecy with mega bucks involved.

As a footnote, all this whining about Notre Dame lost 6 close games; they also need to mention that 4 of their wins were very close. Only wins vs Nevada and Washington State were solid. Being a .500 team looks about right.

That 1 second also permitted Boise St. to join the BCS club. Had Texas lost, the Fiesta would have invited Texas (but probably not TCU as the matchup). so (2) non BCS schools got in this year due to the Texas last second FG
