"Normally, this whole process is in L.A. and it's real familiar to us," senior safety Taylor Mays said.

If BCS bowls are to have any significance - and they do directly or indirectly - this kind of home town/home state advantage has to go away. USC seldom plays a BCS game outside LA and LSU has never had to play in one outside Louisiana.

Send the Pac10 to the Sugar and the SEC to the Rose and get their lazy fans off their duffs to follow them.

Better yet, lets bring the SEC and Pac 10 to Ann Arbor, Mich and Madison, Wi for a Jan bowl game and see how they fare. It does make a difference when you play the game in your own back yard!

Got to agree with both of you, PAR and Southern Buckeye! I have often wondered what it would be like if Florida, teams in the South and the West Coast teams had to come up to play in the cold weather. Bet it would be a different story!
