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.
