Sorry, yeah I didn't obviously mean 'whoever they want', I did mean in terms of who they have to select from, they can choose since they lost their affiliated teams.

As for the BCS bowls, I'm hearing a lot of Boise vs TCU in Fiesta Bowl talk so I'm not the only one thinking that's going to happen. Yes, the BCS automatic qualifier was put in place so a big boy can play a smaller school, but

1) There's 2 smaller schools this year.

2) What happens if the undefeated smaller schools both beat big name schools, Cincy beats Florida, and Alabama beats Texas? You have FOUR teams with claims to a national title. Boise/TCU eliminates one automatically, meaning you have three claims at most and slightly less controversy.

Tough week for Iowa in the coaches poll, as they drop from 10 to 11 off of their, well, I don't know what they did, while Penn State remained in the 9 slot in the coaches poll. I wouldn't say chicanery, well, I probably would.

Probably has to do with Georgia Tech beating Clemson and moving ahead of Iowa.. oh and the BCS bowls can still choose Iowa if they want, they can choose either team, so I wouldn't read too much into it.

EDIT - Boise vs TCU in Fiesta just announced, yep.

JJD's Playoff Bracketology That Doesn't Mean Anything™

Methodology: 20 teams. Eleven conference champions automatically qualify. Nine at-large teams. Teams ranked and seeded using six BCS ranking computers, but I take Sagarin's and Massey's ORIGINAL ranking formulae, NOT their BCS-adjusted ones. I try to place the bracket strictly by ranking but I will move a team up or down a spot to avoid two same-conference teams playing as long as possible. (I didn't have to do that this year.)

Houston and USC lost this week and played themselves out of spots.

AUTOMATIC QUALIFYING TEAMS
Georgia Tech (11-2) - ACC champion
Ohio State (10-2) - Big Ten champion
Cincinnati (12-0) - Big East champion
Texas (13-0) - Big XII champion
East Carolina (9-4) - Conference USA champion
Central Michigan (10-2) - MAC champion
TCU (12-0) - Mountain West champion
Oregon (10-2) - Pac-10 champion
Alabama (13-0) - SEC champion
Troy (9-3) - Sun Belt champion
Boise State (13-0) - WAC champion

AT-LARGE TEAMS
Florida (12-1)
LSU (9-3)
Virginia Tech (9-3)
Iowa (10-2)
Miami-FL (9-3)
Penn State (10-2)
West Virginia (9-3)
Oregon State (8-4)
Pittsburgh (9-3)
Oregon State (8-3)

FIRST ROUND
(20) Troy at (13) Miami
(19) East Carolina at (14) Penn State
(18) Central Michigan at (15) West Virginia
(17) Pittsburgh at (16) Oregon State

SECOND ROUND
Oregon State/Pittsburgh at (1) Alabama
West Virginia/Central Michigan at (2) Texas
Penn State/East Carolina at (3) Florida
Miami/Troy at (4) Cincinnati
(12) Iowa at (5) TCU
(11) Virginia Tech at (6) Boise State
(10) Ohio State at (7) Oregon
(9) LSU at (8) Georgia Tech
