These are some good questions that should help us all take out our frustrations!!
Is it better suited for the conference as a whole to send the most teams possible to bowl games or only ones that have a legitimate chance at victory...aka teams that won't further embarrass the Pac-10?
I only want the Pac-10 to send solid teams that are capable of winning not a bunch of also-rans just to fill our bowl allotment. If we are going to simply send teams to fill our bowl allotment then heck lets just send everyone so the whole conference can go to a bowl game. There are too many bowl games to begin with so its better if we just send 3 or 4 teams we get the best teams in the best games with some pretty good match-ups.
What's the deal, OSU? Look, I get it, ruin your own season, that's fine. Nobody cares about that. But to ruin Cal's season? And to cost the entire Pac10 millions and millions of dollars? What's up with that? I mean c'mon!
Well, As I stated above I am not a fan of a play-off. I would rather that the indivdual conferences adopt the same standards across the boards.
I would make it mandatory that no program can schedule any FCS schools on their schedule. Division 1 (FBS) schools only or no post season...period.
All the individual conferences need to do one of two things...either 1) downsize and have a round robin within the conference or 2) expand and have a conference championship game. There needs to be one standard for all the BCS conferences. Once everyone plays by the same rules or standards it will be easier to rate and rank the teams within the polls.
Is it perfect? Probably not but its worth a shot...
