The argument comes down to Arkansas being given the bid over the Broncos. Wouldn't it be delicious to actually have Boise St vs Ohio St in a BCS Bowl, with Ohio State's President E. Gordon Gee's commentary about the superiority of BCS teams hanging in the air? This one could be hyped up like a boxing match. A classic Drago vs Rocky affair. I think the BCS missed out on a great opportunity to do justice and score awesome ratings.
It seems they were more interested in avoiding future contention if the game wasn't a blowout by the Buckeyes.
