I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly but here is what was reported in the Atanta Journal Constitution (I'm sure it's already posted here in this thread but I will repost it):
Conferences will be measured in three ways over a four-year stretch from 2004-07:
• Average ranking in the BCS standings for the conference's highest-rated team.
• Average ranking in the BCS computer standings for every member of the conference.
• Number of Top 25 teams.
The interesting note is how do they calcualte the number of Top-25 teams and compare the conferences to each other. Is that BCS number? How do they measure the Top-25 - using the last BCS rank that comes out in December? Many speculate
that the number of Top-25 teams required is 25% of the conference size but nothing official
has come out about it.
In addition, no where does the BCS list how they will account for the fact that the BE only has 8 teams, MWC 9, and the others have 10, 11, or 12. It will probably only matter to the BE and MWC though.
Blackgold is correct in that no where does it state that UL will count for Pitt nor does it say that the highest rank would be counted instead of the BCS reps number.... at least I couldnt find it and BG confirmed that he hasn't read anything about that either.
Also, as BG noted before, one last point is that while the above list is what was perhaps 'leaked' to the media, I wonder if there are additional criteria that have been kept secret.
Anyway, hopefully we will know more with the hearings.
