I don't really care.  I think we matchup well with all of them.  That said, I'd prefer K-State/TCU to Boise.  And while a Fiesta Bowl trip means that I get to attend (although with the coaches poll having bama a solid #2, its highly unlikely), I'd rather play any of those teams than a stanford team that would thrash us through the air.

If it is between those two, I say TCU. Although they did beat Boise, Kellen Moore terrifies me, and I think Denard would have more success against TCU than Boise.

I think their defense is an average BCS defense, which is more than you can say for the typical; non-AQ squad not named TCU, but Georgia did score 21 against Boise and weren't so much slowed down by Boise as just make some bad plays.

I think Boise would be a nice matchup, but I have a sense it won't be them.  Personally, I'd like UM-Stanford just for the B1G/Pac-10 symmetry and the fact that it would be a really fun game to see Luck and Denard dominate in their own ways.

We aren't in yet. I just hope we are playing in the damn game ... at this point it doesn't matter who else is in the Sugar Bowl, especially if we are not. If we make it ... I'll gladly play whomever they say we are playing against

Guys, there are still so many options out there that this kind of thread is completely useless (and I'm normally fine with speculation threads). Can't we just wait until 8:15, and then start discussing who we are really playing?

1. West Virginia. 2. Virginia Tech.

I think the reason it is speculation is because you put forth only three of at least 5 possible teams. Of those you put forth....1. KSU, 2. TCU, 3. Boise. I don't want Boise in a bowl game. They are good, and not a lot of upside. Beating WVU would be awesome for obvious reasons, and Va Tech would be a good matchup against a team from the ACC we haven't played perhaps ever, etc.

...because I think they would be the best matchup for us in this scenario, BUT....

....I also shall wait for 8:15 PM, since I can hardly stand not really knowing at this point.

I think WVU would be the most interesting matchup available to us under the present circumstances.

TCU, because I have seen so little of them, would also be interesting.  The Horned Frogs certainly gave Wisconsin something to think about last year.

A little TOO much to think about. Us too. Not that KSU is a pushover, but unlike Houston, TCU plays defense as well as offense. Not really interested. (West Virginia would be fun, without quite the venom with new coaches, and maybe a more likely win, as the Big East isn't good...but not looking too likely at this point).

I know, and to me, that's the biggest current problem with the BCS.  That they didn't have the balls to kick out the Big East like they should've, and thus, crap-ass midmajors like TCU have an easy path in.

Plus, occasionally I see people thinking that they deserve a bid regardless of autobid status.  (That is, had Houston kept it.)  It boggles the mind.
