Should T.C.U. (pending a perfect season) have the oppurtunity to compete in a BCS bowl game?

The Trouble With T.C.U.

Post by kohlslaw5 »

-9-0 as of November 9th
-ranked 9th in BCS Standings
-ranked in top 15 in both polls (also as of 11/9/03)

Now you may be asking yourself, "What is the trouble with T.C.U.?"

T.C.U. is a member of Conference USA. Conference USA is not a BCS conference and legally therefore should not be allowed to participate in a BCS bowl game because of this. ALso, T.C.U.'s schedule was ranked 2nd easiest in terms of last years records, and their non-conference schedule was the easiest by these standards.

Now, I for one, do not think that it is fair to deny an undefeated team, like TCU the oppurtunity to compete in a bowl game because of a legality they had very little say in. What else can TCU do other than win all their games? Nothing, would be the correct answer.

What do you think about this controversy which will become bigger with every "Horned Frog" victory?

Let them play Oklahoma, then they won't be undefeated anymore.

Play em in the BCS...people are always worried about ratings....well I bet the first rounds of the NCAA Tourney get the best ratings anyway. I know I'd watch them play a bigtime program just to see if they could hang. I think the NCAA is afraid they would win!
