the gmac bowl dec.18 and the humanitarian bowl jan.3. over rated tcu backed out of the gmac, a boise/mia matchup of 2 one lose teams would be a great game. then they could go home and host the boise bowl 2 weeks later. far fetched i know but it would be cool. by the way another thing that frustates me is the mid majors get no respect due to schedule. then when its bowl season when they have earned a top 10 game by going 12-1 they get matched up with some 6th place team tie in (hence g.t. for the boise bowl). guess there really is a glass ceiling if you're not a bcs confrence.

WHY NOT! AGREE!

Boise was top 10 material last year, and although not quite as powerful is peaking right now. Would love to see them play a top 20 team like Maryland, Mississippi or Mich State. Won't happen, but they would be right there vs these 3.

Well, what about 3 bowl games. What I mean is they are coming to Hawaii to play the Warriors on Saturday, and some feel its like a bowl game with all the hype and media attention. Also because of the location and this being a paradise island and all. I just hope Boise St. not thinking vacation to early, could spell trouble. Alabama just had their bowl game here last week.

Boise St. is a good team, but I have to disagree with the fact that they could defeat Maryland or Mich State. Maybe they could hang tight with Miss. They lost to Oregon State, and even Oregon St would more than likely lose to these 3 squads. I think that everyone is getting caught up in the blowouts that Boise St. is putting on some of the weaker opponents. Still, I think they have alot of talent, but to be recognized as top 20 material, you have to face tough competition week in and week out. To survive that and still win games impressively, then your team has the right to be recognized.

The beauty of the early bowl games is all the motivation is with teams like Boise, MAC conference, etc. The 6th place team who goes bowling every year has little motivation.

Fair Warning, why would a 6th place team who got a chance to go bowling not have motivation. Why is it that you see this happening?
