So... what happens after Missouri beats Texas? (or Kansas, or Tech)
I'll agree that the Big 12 looks strong this year, but that IS the problem. I think they will beat each other, and USC stands a good chance of waltzing their way up the polls and into the Championship game. Can they beat any of the top three teams in the Big 12 or SEC? No, but the BCS doesn't care. Penn State controls their own destiny; if they run the table in that weak conference they will
be in. That leaves the Big 12 or SEC champ, out.
Oh and as far as recent
history goes, let's look at the last ten years...
|Conference||Championships||Schools||BCS Championship Game Record|
|SEC||4||LSU (2007 & 2003), Florida (2006), Tennessee (1998)||4-0 (1.000)|
|Big 12||2||Texas (2005), Oklahoma (2000)||2-3 (0.400)|
|Pac 10||1||USC (2004)||1-1 (0.500)|
|Big 10||1||Ohio State (2002)||1-2 (0.333)|
|Big East||1||Miami (2001)||1-1 (0.500)*|
|ACC||1||Florida State (1999)||1-0 (1.000)|
Check the winning percentage. When the SEC gets in, they win. The reason they don't get in is they beat each other. That's what happens in a deep conference. The Big 12 will see it this year.
I am by no means a "homer", I like good football no matter who's playing it. Heck, my favorite team is, Anybody Playing Notre Dame...
