YAWN.  This one might be worse then watching that horrid ACC Championship game.  Kind of glad we didn’t get the Orange Bowl this year….even with a “BCS Win” everyone will remember who you played.  Nothing you can do about it I know….but still.

N Illinois does not belong.  If FSU does not win this one easily then something is wrong with FSU.  This is a game where recruiting and talent on the field should outweigh any other hype the other team has.  A Duke situation if you will.

I’m glad Clemson didn’t make it to the Orange Bowl too. Not sure why you are so worried about FSU having serious problems if they don’t do this or that every week, I’d be more worried about that D in the “Peach Bowl”.

How does Northern Ill. jump from 21 to 15 in the BSC after beating Kent St. in OT? What a ridiculous system college football has, the sport used to be so much better before all the money. The number of bowl games is stupid too.

High School, FCS, Division 2, Division 3, NFL, CFL, and Arena football with their idiotic playoff systems. One day they’ll learn that it should be determined by computers.

FSU will beat Northern Ill by at least 50 points.

Northern Ill doesn’t belong on the field with FSU. Right?

FSU could not score on GT in the second half , so , I do not know about that.
Does Wake, Duke, Maryland, Virginia, NCST,  NC , deserve to be on the field with FSU ?
The ACC , where all our CUPCAKE games are conference games !
Except Murray State and Savannah State of course.

lol, FSU fans sincerely apologize for allowing NIU to play in a BSC bowl game. We will try to make sure the computers rank teams better next time. What a system!

FSU’s last 4 bowls= wins over Wisconsin, West Virginia, South Carolina, Notre Dame.

NIU’s last 4 bowls= losses to La. Tech and South Florida, wins over Fresno St. and Arkansas St.

No win situation for FSU. I hate to see that in what should be a big bowl.

FSU needs to put the peddle to the metal and beat down NIU setting up a preseason ranking with a QB who doesn’t give games away.

Just sayin….

i think this kind of situation (maybe not this one specifically) is going to eventually lead to the demise of the SEC. Think about how many better teams there are who are cant go to the BCS because 2 other teams already are going from that conference

Clem that is why I said I would rather have seen FSU play LSU or UGA for that matter. If FSU wins well they were supposed to, if it is close, bring on the cliff jumpers.

Of course with some of the games Jimbo has called lately we never know what is going to happen. Will Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde show up?

FSU has beaten the SEC champ at least 8 times, and we don’t even play in the SEC, lol:

FSU beat the 1987 SEC champs 34-6
FSU beat the 1988 SEC champs 13-7
FSU beat the 1989 SEC champs 22-14
FSU beat the 1993 SEC champs 33-21
FSU beat the 1994 SEC champs 23-17
FSU beat the 1996 SEC champs 24-21
FSU beat the 2000 SEC champs 30-7
FSU beat the 2013 SEC champs 34-31

Give it up for the SEC, a conference which almost beat FSU

Hahaha…yeah and to remind us all how Black people are nostalgic for the Confederacy.
Don’t forget that little known nugget of history from another thread.

Pretty sure that Dave Chappelle documented this also…Clayton Bigsbee I think.

He enjoys showing off his   ,  typing   , and   , internets skills.
Also to troll.
And show everyone how everything in football leads back to Bamers ?
Bc everyone know Bamers fans are the best -  at football knowledge -!
Sec is the number 1.
A Big 12 team could never compete in the SEC.
Except for that one freshman who is a Heisman front runner ,  vs. sec D.
