Also, I will grant the validity of Bowl Results when they aren't played exclusively outside of Big Ten country thus negating the strength and natural advantages of the Big Ten and providing the PAC (namely USC), Big 12 (all the Texas Bowls) and SEC (way too many Southern bowls) with those advantages instead.

 

The current setup is prejudice and fraudulent while putting a much bigger travel burden on the North.  It is literally more expensive to be a fan of a Northern team if you want to attend a bowl game.  That is bonkers.  What inherent right do warmer climates have in this case?  If heat is the goal, play the games in Africa.  Or turn up the heat in domed stadiums to absurd levels.  So, if heat isn't the goal, why keep pretending that current bowl sites have some inherent right to college football's postseason to the detriment of an entire region of the country?

Hmmmm BCS began in 1998.  You arbitrarily cut off 2 years in which the Big Ten was exceptional.

 

Yeah I'm sure there's no agenda here.  College football fundamentally CHANGED in 1998, but you know why recognize that when you can literally pick an arbitrary starting point instead.  Even "last 10 years" would have made more sense.  But "last 12"?  Oh, yeah 2000 is a cool number.  I'm sure the "cool number" outweighed the LOGIC in this case.

 

What you did was the equivalent of looking at March Madness in the Three Point Shot Era, only you decided to cut off the first two years of that Era for no reason whatsoever other than "it made sense" and "2000 is a cool number".
