Who is to say that they don't rank each years conference place and then average those. For example:<br /><br />2008<br />Rnk-Conf-Value<br />1-B12 (1)<br />2-SEC (2)<br />3-P10 (5)<br />4-MWC (6)<br />5-B10 (8)<br />6-WAC (9)<br />7-BE (12)<br />8-ACC (14)<br />9-CUSA (22)<br /><br />2009<br />Rnk-Conf-Value<br />1-SEC (1)<br />2-B12 (2)<br />3-BE (3)<br />4-MWC (4)<br />5-WAC (6)<br />6-P10 (7)<br />7-B10 (8)<br />8-ACC (9)<br /><br />2 year average<br />1-B12 (1+2/2=1.5)<br />1-SEC (2+1/2=1.5)<br />3-MWC (4+4/2=4)<br />4-BE (6+3/2=4.5)<br />5-P10 (3+6/2=4.5)<br />6-WAC (6+5/2=5.5)<br />7-B10 (5+7/2=6)<br />8-ACC (7+8/2=7.5)<br /><br />Granted MWC still sits in 3rd place, but if they did the calculation based on this wouldn't it make it easier for other teams to leap us in the next 2 years. A difference of 6 from top to bottom is easier to jump over people vs the way you had it listed with a difference of 11.<br /><br />Either way I don't believe the BCS Eval formula is completely clear on how they will calculate those things. And I could almost guarantee that which ever way they chose to calculate it on Dec 4, 2011 it will be to the BCS powers advantage and not the MWC.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5265489125029122985.post-48978641036700213312010-05-17T19:55:33.710-07:002010-05-17T19:55:33.710-07:00I like all the ideas on here... if this gets left ...I like all the ideas on here... if this gets left to the committee, how many of those members are from west of the Mississippi?Stevehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04025655568396074692noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5265489125029122985.post-89285408428827657942010-04-29T16:07:27.978-07:002010-04-29T16:07:27.978-07:00What would the numbers look like if Houston was ad...What would the numbers look like if Houston was added in addition to Boise St? Would their regular season ranking contribute enough to raise the conference's criteria 2 ranking into the top 6? For criteria 3, you would still benefit from a 12.5% adjustment because the conference wouldn't have hit the 12 member threshold yet.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5265489125029122985.post-7498818274297596542010-04-23T15:23:52.313-07:002010-04-23T15:23:52.313-07:00That would be an incredible help if SDSU dropped f...That would be an incredible help if SDSU dropped football and we added Boise.

Now after the bowl games, Boise wound up 3rd and TCU 6th but those don't count.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5265489125029122985.post-68179605943250738642010-04-23T05:51:21.866-07:002010-04-23T05:51:21.866-07:00No, The 50% and 33% things only deal with the Cate...No, The 50% and 33% things only deal with the Category 3 part.
