    Just when I thought I couldn't like Bielema any more than I did before, he goes and does this.

    I'd agree with Bielema about 87%, but the reason Wisconsin didn't go BCS was the cream-cheese cotton-candy schedule left to him by Uncle Barry.

    Another staple just broke in Charlie's belly, he's so mad.

    Two teams in the BCS from each conference is enough or the bowls would take three Big Ten and SEC teams every year.
    But he's spot on about Notre Dame...
  5. And this coming from the occupant of the Thrione of Peter.
    I'm shocked.

    On the plus side, he can swallow a whole 3 Musketeers again.

    Are you saying that if no restriction was in place, you'd have chosen Notre Dame over Wisconsin for a BCS bowl?

    I think the point is that the decision is never going to be based on who has the better football team as long as Notre Dame gets to be the only free agent. Even with no conference restriction, the BCS would take Notre Dame and its higher TV ratings.

    If Notre Dame played in the Big Ten, Wisconsin would have more than likely had the chance to earn a BCS berth on the field against them. As it turned out, they didn't have that opportunity.

    Actually, if Notre Dame played in the Big 10 neither one of them would have been in a BCS game.

    Depending on how the schedule was drawn up, you are correct.

    Son, in 35 years of religious study, I have only come up with two hard, incontrovertible facts: there is a God, and...I am not Him

    Actually, if ND was in the big 10, there would be divisional play and more than likely Wisconsin would have faced at least two of OSu, PSU, UM and ND... and ND would have drawn two of Wis, OSU, UM and PSU...
