Heard it on the radio show as they confirmed the reports out of Baton Rouge with 28,0000 tickets already sold.

Just had this emailed to me, and it's consisted with what i've been hearing all day:

"ESPN Radio and the Boston Globe are reporting that LSU will be invited to play in the Rose Bowl. ESPN says several unnamed sources on the BCS selection committee have confirmed that LSU will get the invitation. DEVELOPING..."

Take that for what it's worth, but what I can say is that I spoke to a couple acquaintances on the Sugar Bowl Committe who are whispering that Notre Dame will be the team here in NO, thus the word from the Rose Bowl people must be that they plan on passing up the Irish.

A-W-E-S-O-M-E.

So, will that be ND/UF (assuming UF win) or ND/Big East? This could have a ripple effect.

in the same conversation they said it was a possibility Notre Dame would play in the Sugar Bowl.

Well, this is a first, it looks like.

Rose gets the Pac 10 and Big 10 champs.

Problem is, the Pac 10 and Big 10 champs will be in Glendale playing for the national championship. I am not quite sure how that works. I'm guessing that the Rose gets two at-large bids? I know that usually when a BCS Bowl loses it's tie-in, they get first pick of the at-large.

I don't know if that means that the Rose Bowl gets the first two at-large picks? I'm doubting it. That wouldn't be fair.

Rose - LSU vs. At Large
Fiesta - B12 vs. At large
Orange - ACC vs. At Large
Sugar - SEC vs. At large

Fiesta gets last. That will be Boise State.

You're looking at ND or Michigan, as best as I can guess. ND is more LSU's caliber. Hope for that.

What they were saying on WWL is that it's going to be Michigan, unless USC gets upset by UCLA. Then Michigan would likely play Ohio State for the NC and the Rose would gladly take back the Pac-10 champ. I can't see the Rose passing on Michigan, though I despise Notre Dame and would love to get a shot at them.

LC, the Rose will get the first 2 picks if they lose both tie-ins.
So, the Rose doesn't have to pick Mich, but I'm sure they will. LSU will be the other pick.

And don't equate LSU with ND or even Tx this year. LSU lost 2 games to the #4 and #11 ranked BCS teams on the road.
ND played the #2 BCS team and got skull drug at home. They played the #3 BCS school and got skull drug again.
Tx lost to a very good OSU team at home. No shame in that. But, losing to KSU and TAM is shameful for a team of TX's status.

As for LSU v. Mich. That will be a good game as both teams are good.
If LSU were to play Tx, I think that would be a very good game as both teams are skilled.
LSU would wax the field with ND.

That is the way it should be.
The only thing I was thinking might not put LSU in the Rose Bowl was if Florida lost to ARkansas and the Rose chose Florida.
Despite what some were saying, I never believed the Rose was seriously considering Notre Dame.
It will be a good game, and I think LSU wins it.

I'm gonna go ahead and agree with this. :hihi:
