Yesterday I made a post saying why we want Bama to be #2. I said that if the Fiesta Bowl loses OSU then they might take 10-2 Big12 runner-up. But , I was mistaken. The BCS really is about money. The Sugar Bowl is more likely to take a more eastern team/Big10 team, but a Fiesta Bowl is more likely to pick western teams. Let us assume that TCU gets the AQ and Michigan is in the top 14. I assume the Fiesta Bowl and Sugar Bowls will pick Stanford and Michigan as their at-large teams. If Bama goes to the Title Game then the Sugar bowl has to take TCU, since the Fiesta Bowl gets first pick and already took Stanford vs. OSU. But if OSU goes to the title game, and remember the Fiesta Bowl gets first pick, then I say they take Stanford and Boise, and Bama plays TCU in the Sugar. If TCU doesn't make it, then the Sugar takes Michigan anyway.
I personally hope it's vs. Stanford in the Fiesta, not OSU, or Bama in the Sugar. Both those teams scare me, but not Stanford.
