    The reason why the ACC and Big East will never lose their auto bid is because one day those 2 will be elite conferences and the Pac-10 and Big 10 could be like them.

    the ACC has been trash for years. if not for miami earlier in the decade, the big east would have been also.

    The ACC really isnt that bad, just had a couple down years. But Virginia Tech is certainly a good program, and I would think the FSU and Miami will get back up to speed within the next few years. The Big east on the other hand, is a basketball conference with no programs, with the possible exception of West Virginia, who have any type of winning history in football, and I seriously doubt will anytime soon.

    Yes there is a rule saying the Big 10 champs get an automatic bid.

    I also wouldn't be so quick to say we will get blown out by Texas, we beat them handedly, I know it's a different team but we match up well with them.

    Each conference has one automatic bid, not 2. Just because the Big 10 recognizes champs and co-champs, doesnt mean the BCS has to take both teams. You are wrong about that and that would be completely unfair if the Big 10 got 2 automatic bids while the rest of the conferences only get one.

    I'm excited to see several matchups in the BCS games.

    Overall, I think the 2 best teams ended up in the title game. It will be interesting to see what Texas and USC end up doing....


    Anyone think there is a chance of a split national title?? I could almost see it this season.
