Biased Bowl Coverage, Part One: Arizona Wildcats Snuff No. 16 BYU

So, after all the ranting I’ve heard about the BCS being inefficient, and my own ranting that the Pac-10 is better than it looks, I decided to put myself to the test.

Throughout the season, I have argued that it was the Pac-10’s difficult non-conference schedule that made them seem weak. By splitting the number of games that they have won, the Pac-10 made themselves look worse than the incestuous SEC.

The Big 12, I give some respect to. They played a few tough games outside of their conference. The SEC, however, continues to ride their reputation as a strong conference, and has yet to prove themselves in bowl play.

So now that you have the background to my argument, here’s what is really important: the stats. For the next two weeks, I will be logging a comparison of the Pac-10 versus the two “strongest” conferences in the NCAA. If all goes well, it will prove that USC was once again cheated out of the BCS Championship game by the higher standards held for the team.

Hopefully, I will be proven correct in that conference strength means nothing when comparing an incestuous conference to one that actually plays difficult out-of-conference games. If I’m proven wrong, you may not hear from me for a while.
