    BCS is stacked against the Big 12

    The BCS ranking (in particular any voted polling) is stacked against the Big 12 and its current 9 game schedule. The conference's media clout and simple fact of only having 10 programs in just five states means we're going to be eternally underrated. The computer average is as fair as it gets, 6 rankings with the the high and low thrown out. For many seasons in a row now this impartial indicator has shown the Big 12 as significantly better than the voters in the coaches and harris poll. It's a disturbing trend, disturbing that even TEXAS was underrated all season comparing voters to computer formulas.

    Tonight - Harris, Coaches, computer:
    KSU - 6, 6, 4
    OU - 11, 11, 8
    Texas - 24, 25, 18

    Not to mention that OK State (and maybe Baylor) are ranked top 25 in computer average and not ranked in either poll. It's a horrible trend for us sticking with 10 teams in just 5 states playing the hardest schedules in the nation.

    A similar thing happens to some Pac 12 teams (because of 9 game scheduling) but rarely to their top rated teams (because of media clout).

    Re: BCS is stacked against the Big 12

    How does anything you posted have any relevance to this year's BCS, with the rules that are in place for who qualifies for those Bowls?
