    Just FYI, but I have seen two articles now where you said Maryland's QB CJ Brown has graduated. After he sustained a torn ACL in the pre-season of 2012, the NCAA granted him an extra year of eligibility. Therefore, barring another injury, he will be back as the Terps' stating QB in 2014.

    @Jared: The MAC itself doesn't get an automatic bid, but if you care to read the BCS qualification rules, you'll note that the highest ranked team from a non-automatic qualifying conference that is a conference champion (as long as that team is No. 16 or higher in the final BCS ranking) will receive an AUTOMATIC bid to the BCS.
    Last season, Kent State was ranked ahead of Northern Illinois when the two met in the MAC Championship Game. Whichever team won that game would be MAC champions AND ranked No. 16 or above, therefore GUARANTEEING an AUTOMATIC invitation to the BCS.
    So, yes, I do think (and KNOW for a FACT) that if Kent State had beaten Northern Illinois they would have received an AUTOMATIC bid to the BCS.

    Dude, the MAC doesn't get an automatic BCS bid. Your Purdue slide in the garbage article about the 5 teams who can compete with OSU and UM said that Kent State would have been guaranteed a BCS game if they beat Northern Illinois. You're a crack pot man, do you really think that a 12-2 MAC school is getting an at large bid over a 12-2 SEC school?

    David, I'm not a Penn State fan, but I even know QB Steve Bench has been gone from PSU for a while now and currently is enrolled at USF. Just couldn't help but notice you missed that huge piece when writing your column about B1G Ten weak depth charts that was published yesterday (June 3). You have to pay more attention, because silly errors like this drastically change the image that readers, like myself, have of the Bleacher Report and who they have working for them.

    Great article about Michigan and Ohio State.
    Also loved your piece about college and NFL QB comparisons.
    You're a big hit with my coworkers at the office, too!
