My point is Kent State isn’t some great story of a team who had a perfect season like Utah or Boise State. They just rode an easy schedule and could be the benficiary of a silly BCS rule. They have no appeal whatsoever nationally.
I am picking them to lose to Northern Illinois this weekend. Though that could put NIU into a bcs game. Though a MAC team is not deserving of a bcs bowl, neither is a big east team, especially given the fact that Kent St beat Rutgers in Rutgers.
the 5th bcs game has really, really watered down the bowl season. The Orange and Sugar bowls won’t even be in the top-12 bowls to watch this year.
