Interesting article out of Bronco country discussing the possibility of two non-BCS conference schools being selected by the BCS this year.
Also,discussion of how the non-BCS conferences currently split up their BCS loot.

The official weekly BCS poll will be released later.
Here is this weeks's USAToday Coaches poll at http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/football/usatpoll.htm

Looks like there are 4 MWC/WAC schools rated ahead of any ACC or BE schools.

What's up with the BE? WVU is ranked at #25.

Location: Portland! (and about time!)
Think about what would happen if Oregon State runs the table, thus winning the Pac-10. Would they be behind Ball State?

It wouldn't surprise me at all to see the BE or ACC champ with 3 losses. Lots of mediocre teams this year in both conferences.

I think I will also be surprised to see BSU lose in their last couple of games. I think they are almost a shoein to go undefeated.

The MWC picture will be a little more clear with the TCU-Utah on Thursday.

I don't think the WAC is deep enough to meet all the 'published' criteria the BCS set forth. They may be able to make it with their champion number but not in depth. Of course, no one really knows how that is actually measured.

If the MWC keeps this up next year, look out!

Article discussing how great a season the top MWC/WAC schools are having this year with comments from Jerry Palm and Craig Thompson.Apparently the only solution to the current lack of a BCS autobid is to continue to win.

Interesting Washington Post article with quotes from various conference commissioners and BCS admiistrator Bill Hanthingy regarding BCS autobid rules.Apparently,according to the current BCS rules the only way a Non-BCS conferences can obtain the remaining 7th conference autobid is to "make" the designated criteria after the current 4 year evaluating window expires.
Interestingly,the evaluation period for losing an autobid has been extended to 6 years.These rules seem to keep changing.
It should interesting to see if the rules get changed again.

BE MB thread discussing the current BCS rules regarding BCS autobids.As previously reported in the Washington Post article linked in reply #29 in this thread the BCS has apparently changed these rules.
Under current (new?)rules one of the non-BCS conferences could be given the 7th BCS autobid after the 2010-2011 season if they met certain criteria while the 6 current BCS conferences to include the currently underachieving ACC and BE have an extended 6 year evaluation period which will allow them to keep their autobids until at least thru the 2013-2014 season.
As previously discussed,the BE is the only BCS autobid conference without a BCS Bowl anchor contract and thus is currently the most vulnerable to losing it's BCS autobid.

I continue to believe that if the top MWC/WAC schools continue to win they will eventually get a BCS autobid.

Freaked,

Do you remember if the 'Louisville loophole' was closed? I thought I remembered reading that this is now the case meaning that if Boise was added to the MWC, that none of it's BCS rankings - including its least year in the WAC could be counted towards the MWC - if such a scenerio happened.

I tried to find it myself but was unable so I figured I would ask the guru. ;)

Thanks!

Panther,good question.
It is my understanding that the so called "Louisville or BC loophole" was an exception to the rule by applying earlier non-conference data of current conference members into the first BCS autobid evaluation scheme.

I cannot find any current written BCS rules in this regard for the subsequent BCS autobid evaluation periods.
However,the problem with the BCS is that it constantly CHANGES or MAKES UP the rules as it goes along.

Although there does not appear to be a current similar situation as what happened after the ACC raid,however, if your BSU to MWC scenario would occur I would imagine that the MWC would argue for an exception in this case and use the prior BC/Louisville situation as a precedent.
Since the result would apparently be decided by a vote of the BCS members it is unclear what the result would be.
Also, it is also unclear what the specific BCS autobid criteria currently are now that there are two sets of evaluation periods.Also,are the criteria numbers subjected to some sort of "proration" that would favor the smaller conferences?
As we get closer to 2011 it should be interesting to see what other BCS rules changes are released to the public.

Thanks
Freaked
