If Every Year Of The BCS Was Changed And Played Out Under The CFP

Harry Douglas Orange Bowl


Our guys over at @TheRed_Rage have started their own website as of late and have been doing a lot of cool things. From Boy Meets World discussion groups to daily thoughts to simulations, they have made a great site that has a variety show feel to it. That could be a great thing. Something new in a field of the same ole stories. I talked to the Red Rage about the simulations they had done with the UofL teams vs the past 15 National Champions (I think). We talked at length about how underrated the Orange bowl team was. Great Offense, stellar Defense. All the makings of a high-power team.

When the Sugar Bowl matchup was announced between Louisville and Florida, of course people were going to take to twitter with how they felt about it. It appears that Blake Griffin and former Florida Gator basketball player Chandler Parsons just flat out disrespect the Cards.

Louisville Bowl Projections

After Saturdays 23-20 3OT loss to UCONN the Cards fell to 9-2 on the year. While the last two loses have been quite frustrating the Cards still sit in great position and a win Thursday night at Rutgers will give them a share of the Conf. Title and a trip to their 2nd BCS game. The most likely destinations for the Cards will be in New Orleans (Sugar) or Miami (Orange) either of which will be great spots for a young talented team to gain some exposure and set up for a top 15 return in 2013-2014. So lets take a look at where the national media has the Cards:

Which BCS Bowl would you prefer for the Cards?

By Justin Renck:

Ok it’s time to vote! Just having a little fun here. If the Cards are to keep winning and end up in a BCS Bowl, which game would you prefer they play in? I left off the Rose Bowl, because they always take a PAC 12 team and a BIG 10 team. I left off the National Championship because obviously, if that is an option, we all prefer it. Also, I think we started ranked too far back for this year, and the voters won’t allow us to climb that high this season. But anyways, here are your choices. All 3 are possible this year!
