College Football Preseason Top 10...Without the East Coast Bias

The 2011 college football season is still six months away, but with spring rosters taking shape, it's time for some more rankings.

There have been a couple of rankings so far, but like most rankings, there has been a definite east coast/big 12 bias.

In terms of bowl performance, the best conference in BCS football was the Mountain West, who went 4-1. Ironically, the only Mountain West team to lose a bowl game is leaving the conference and joining the PAC-10.

I rank the conferences as follows:

1. The SEC (sent 10 teams to bowls, they went 5-5)

2. The Pac-10 (sent 4 teams to bowls, they went 2-2)

3. The Big-10 (sent 8 teams to bowls, they went 3-5)

4 The Big-12 (sent 8 teams to bowls, they went 3-5)

5. The ACC (sent 9 teams to bowls, they went 4-5)

6. The Big East (sent 6 teams to bowls, they went 4-2)

People are pointing to Oklahoma as resurgent powerhouse because they finally won a BCS game. They're not. They beat Connecticut. Everyone beat Connecticut.

Here's a pre-season top 10 without east coast bias.
