    Should a team that does not belong to a BCS Conference be allowed to play for the BCS Championship? What if there are three teams undefeated, should they be the odd man out?

    I say yes. These teams should try to recruit other teams to their conference to try and get a BCS designation or ....change conferences. It is not fair for certain teams to have to go through a guantlet week after week while others push through cake schedules on their way to an undefeated season.

    We all know the perfect solution would be to have a 4 or 8 team playoff.

      I don't think there are any cakewalks out there, Oklahoma lost to Texas Tech but has destroyed most of the competition.

        You do remember that they both play for a BCS Conference the Big 12.

            The BCS Championship is not designed (or shouldn't be) to have a Cinderella Team get their chance at greatness. The two teams should have established themselves as the cream of the crop. In doing so they have taken down the toughest competition. I'm not impressed with a Non BCS team beating a BCS team. Some of the SEC, Big 12, PAC 12,Big 10 teams are limping into these games from sustained injuries. If you are not going to be in a BCS conference, your non-conference schedule better be impressive.

      I meant to say no. I don't think they should be allowed to play for the championship.

    I say no, unless they have a season schedule that matches the "strength-of-schedule" compared to a BCS conference team. Reality is that these non-BCS conferences are much weaker and so a team can easily go undefeated with a so-so team in certain years.
    There is the disadvantage with BCS teams when the Coaches Poll and Harris Polls are used. BCS teams are ranked high by "tradition and name" to begin the season.
    There should be NO Polling until mid-season and teams have proven themselves first and also included the strength of schedule.
