It is commonly known that in the last 20 years only one current non-BCS school has made it to one of the current BCS bowls (UL, Fiesta Bowl, 1990). The non-BCS schools should call the BCS schools' bluff and say this:

"The BCS should take the top 8 teams regardless of conference affiliation. If it is so unlikely that a non-BCS school could get into one of the 4 bowls, then the BCS schools should have no problem with this policy."

If the haves reject this proposal, the have-nots have a helluva case.

Except that this is not simply the conferences making the BCS happen, but the bowl games themselves. In a sense, the BCS does take the top eight schools regardless of affiliation: They take the top team from each participating conference because of 1) contractual ties and 2) to avoid a glut of schools who've already played each other, and then the next best two schools available. Remember, the BCS is not a simple act created to find the national champion, but was a repackaging of the existing bowl arrangements to ensure that such standing bowl tie-ins could be excused to allow a national championship game when possible.
