    and the tax payers will probably be on the hook for the costs.

    All hail the almighty infallible BCS system... which is only bankrupting the American taxpayer. This is exactly why the government should get involved in these sort of things... because when they don't work out as expected, the tax payers have to pay for it!

    lol - they can always decline the invite. Notre Dame has declined bowl invites in the past. At the least UConn can expect less prestiegous bowls going forward. Fans gotta travel thats what gets teams in the better bowls. Probably not how it should be, but thats the way it be.

    There was an outstanding article on the BCS system in Sports Illustrated a few months ago. Many of the teams go into debt going to their bowl games. The bowls keep half the proceeds and some teams are in conferences which divide the revenue equally.
