yeah the acc tends to stink in bcs games then its the big 10 stinking it up. the big east holds their own. look at west va.

So based on records the MWC should have an automatic bid to a BSC gameand the ACC should lose thier automatic bid to a BSC game. Then the big 10 should be asked to start showing up duing bowl season or they might start losing their automatic bid to a bsc game. hehe

MWC 2-0 1.000 Utah (2-0)

SEC 12-5 .710 Tennessee (1-1),Florida (4-1),Alabama (0-2),LSU (4-0),Georgia (2-1),Auburn (1-0)

Pac-10 9-4 .692 UCLA (0-1),Stanford (0-1),Washington (1-0),Oregon State (1-0),Oregon (1-0),Washington State (0-1),USC (6-1)

Big East 6-5 .545 Syracuse (0-1),Virginia Tech* (0-1),Miami (FL) (3-1),Pittsburgh (0-1),West Virginia (2-0),Louisville (1-0),Cincinnati (0-1)

Big 12 7-9 .438 Texas A&M (0-1),Nebraska (1-1),Oklahoma (2-5),Colorado (0-1),Kansas State (0-1),Texas (3-0),Kansas (1-0)

Big Ten 8-11 .421 Wisconsin (2-0),Ohio State (4-3),Michigan (1-3),Purdue (0-1),Illinois (0-2),Iowa (0-1),Penn State (1-1)

ACC 2-9 .182 Florida State (1-5),Maryland (0-1),Virginia Tech* (1-2),Wake Forest (0-1)

WAC 1-1 .500 Boise State (1-0),Hawaii (0-1)

Notre Dame 0-3 .000

your joking right! The MWC should get a automatic bid besides Utah name me 2 other teams in that conference. Dont get me wrong the ACC isnt the strongest but I think the bottom 5 teams in the ACC can beat the top 5 teams in the MWC besides Utah maybe. Look at stregthn of schedule the MWC hardley plays anyone outside their conference

just having some fun with the big 10 folks - for them to mock the ACC after wining only 1 bowl game makes me laugh.

How many teams is the ACC up to now? 34?

Jokey jokey conference, playing at about the MAC level.

The Big Ten played almost every bowl against higher ranked and/or flat out better teams:

Minny was pretty bad, and they played a team (Kansas) that was ranked in the top 20 for half the season.

Wiscy completely fell apart in the 2nd half of the season (the loss to Ohio State crushed their spirits) and they played against a surging FSU team. That was a match-up of one of the best ACC teams against one of the worst Big 10 teams.

Iowa won.

MSU played Georgia, a Bulldog team that was supposed to win the NC (annual choke though)

PSU was wildly overmatched by USC and everyone outside of Western PA knew it.

OSU played right down to the wire with a Texas team that was every bit as good as Oklahoma or Florida.

Hate, but don't hate blindly.

Just like the big 10 stinks and everyone outside of the heartland realizes it!

If PSU was so wildly overmatched how come they were the best the Big 10 had?

Texas - was sleep walking through that game and still beat OSU.

Conference Power Rankings: 2008-2009 Season Final
Ranking the BCS Conferences, from Best to Worst
By Tim Hyland, About.com

See More About:2008 college football previewcollege football conferencessec footballbig 10 footballbig 12 footbalAfter questioning its strength all season, I must now admit that the SEC truly does reign supreme.

And defending its honor all season, I now must admit that the Big Ten is truly becoming indefensible.

With the 2008 college football season now over, the time has come to take one last look at the About.com Conference Power Rankingsómy ranking of the nationís power conferences, from best to worst.

As always, let me know where you think Iím right, where you think Iím wrong, and how you would re-shuffle the rankings.

1. Southeast Conference

(Doug Benc/Getty Images) Pretty much all year, my stance on the SEC was as follows: Two great teams (Alabama, Florida) and a bunch of good-to-mediocre ones. I questioned the quality of those SEC offenses (see: Auburn, Tennessee). I pretty much thought the league was overrated. Then bowl season arrived and the SEC proved once more that it has quite simply distanced itself from the rest of the college football world. Floridaís defense shut down the previously high-powered Oklahoma offense. Ole Miss stunned Texas Tech. LSU humbled Georgia Tech. Georgia outmusculed Michigan State. The only disappointment? Alabama getting blown out by Utah in the Sugar Bowl.

2. Big 12

(Brian Bahr/Getty Images)The Big 12ís fate rested in the hands of its supposed power teams: Oklahoma, Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State. And only Texas came out with a win, squeaking by Ohio State in a very hard-fought Fiesta Bowl. Oklahoma State couldnít keep up with Oregon. Texas Tech folded against Ole Miss. And we all know what happened to Oklahoma. The problem with this league right now is precisely the problem that SEC backers had been pointing to all year: Not enough defense.

3. Pac-10

(Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Quite a late-season surge for the once-maligned Pac-10. Leading the way, of course, were the USC Trojans, who blitzed past Penn State in the Rose Bowl. Oregon came through against Oklahoma State. Oregon State won one of the ugliest bowl games in history, getting by Pitt, 3-0. Even schizophrenic Arizona stepped up, blasting BYU. A great bowl season for the Pac-10.

4. ACC
What I had been saying about this league all year held true in the bowl season: Thereís not any great teams in the ACC. But there are some good ones. And a couple of them looked pretty good in their bowl matchups. Maryland overcame tough odds (and a brutal trip) to pick up a bowl win on the blue turf in Boise. Florida State destroyed Wisconsin. And Virginia Tech finally got that long-sought BCS bowl win, knocking off Big East champ Cincinnati in the Orange Bowl.

5. Mountain West Conference

(Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images) Utah led the MWC charge all season and that didnít change one bit in the bowl season. The Utes stunned the college football world by heading deep into SEC country and not only beating Nick Saban and Alabama, but dominating them. Please, SEC fans, donít use the excuse that ďAlabama didnít want to be there.Ē And donít ever pretend that Utah doesnít have ďSEC speed.Ē As good as Utahís win was, however, BYUís loss to Arizona was a real downeróespecially after the MWC had enjoyed so much success against the Pac-10 during the regular season.

6. Big Ten

(Ronald Martinez, Getty Images)Yes, the Big Ten only went 1-6 in its bowl games. Yes, another Big Ten rep (Penn State) got the USC treatment in the Rose Bowl. And yes, Wisconsin and Minnesota were blown out in games that were supposed to be somewhat competitive. Only Iowa managed a bowl win, blowing by South Carolina behind the running of the now-NFL-bound Shonn Greene, while Northwestern fell in overtime to Mizzou. So how can I justify putting the Big Ten ahead of the Big East? Simple: I donít think thereís a team in the Big East that could have beaten Penn State or Ohio State.

7. Big East

(Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Though Cincinnatiís Big East championship was a great thing for Brian Kellyís up-and-coming program, it probably wasnít a good thing for the Big East. Nationally, Cincinnati has almost no reputation, and that hasnít changed after a lackluster performance against Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl. The future of the Big East essentially lies in the hands of its traditional powers. If Pitt can finally put a full season together, if West Virginia can survive post-Pat White, and If Syracuse can finally turn things around, then this league will have a future. Without these programs stepping up, though, I donít ever see the Big East getting out of the basement.
