Aborted Rematch: A third party attempted to organize a rematch of last season’s Rose Bowl between TCU and Wisconsin to open the season. Wisconsin accepted. “I was contacted a week and half after the bowl game about the opportunity to play TCU in our opener,” Bret Bielema told the Mike Heller Show. “It was something that was going to be broadcast and made a big deal, it took me all of about point five seconds to say yes.” TCU declined, because the BCS would f–k them over if they lost. This is the BCS “preserving” the regular season. [Big 1070]
