As we all know not all conferences are created equal. The B1G is crap, the Big XII is good, the Pac-12, average, Big East is a joke and the ACC is shit. The Top 10 in the BCS deserved a spot in one of the 5 games regardless of championships.

Should be top 10 BCS teams. Conference champions are too often not great teams and their records prove it.

But if the BCS conferences came together to draft this agreement that conference champions are worthy than who is to say otherwise. Please, start naming sports where conference champions are thrown by the wayside and discarded. Particularly in a unbalanced scheduling situation.

Your opinion is that of SEC is "holier than thou".

I agree should be top 10, but all the conferences and ND won't agree to it because they all want their BCS money.
And since the NCAA doesn't oversee the national title or bowls, that's not going to happen

I don't think when they drafted that agreement they foresaw where the college landscape was headed.

I'll name one for you. College football. Obviously the conference champions of MAC, C-USA, WAC, etc, etc, etc have been deemed unworthy of an automatic BCS bid. If we can say their conferences aren't good enough, why is it so ridiculous to also say that the Big Least and ACC are undeserving of an autobid?

It seems the point of the "best" 5 bowls would be to put the best 10 teams against each other. I'll even give a little and say that BCS bowls should have the option to take teams in the top 15 if they win their conference.

Look at it this way. It's entirely possible to win your division and go to the Conference championship game with 5 conference wins. We've done it. What if you lose your other 7 games? You could win your conference and have an automatic bid to a BCS bowl at 6-7 and technically not bowl eligible. That's stupid.

You're being naive about the sausage-making process by which we arrived at the current rules.

It's national title game will get more views than the 05 game.

Idiotic. ULM vs. La Tech would've been a HUGE game for that state. It would've been one of the rare sellouts for the Independence Bowl.

I feel sorry for those players.

We really need a play-off format like the FCS schools have. But what would you rather have? A couple of more home games and a national championship, or a nice trip to a game somewhere in Florida? Uga came within 5 yards of riding a weak schedule into a national championship game.

One more year of the current BCS but the BCS 2.0 is going to get it right. Pure plus one top 4 teams go into a playoff
