Big XII trying to make it harder for non-BCS teams to get into bowl games
So their schedules aren't tough enough, but teams refuse to play them. And now, the Big XII is proposing to make it even tougher for them to go to normal bowls, never mind BCS bowls.
The Big XII is proposing that 6-6 teams in BCS conferences be given preference over 7-5 teams from non-BCS conferences. I'll agree that for the most part, a 6-6 team from the Big XII or SEC is probably much better than one from the WAC or the MWC. But the cards are already stacked against the smaller conferences... do we really need to compound the problem?
If these conferences are regarded as basically the minor leagues as compared to the major conferences, shouldn't they just be in their own separate division, and be allowed to play for their own championship?
