never thought I would say this but i agree wih Jerry Jones in saying the Cotton Bowl should be a BCS tie-in game.

I'd kick the Rose Bowl out of the BCS simply b/c of their stubborness. they want to play by their rules and it is blantantly obvious by this years pairing of USC and Illinois.

we all know Illinois doesn't deserve to be in this game. yet the Rose Bowl committee wants to keep to their tradition.

well, no problem. kick them out of the BCS and they can stick with their tradition.
