I realize that would never happen, them being 1 or 2 but the reason for that is a weak schedule. That is my point. Kansas is playing a Bowling Green schedule. It shouldn't be rewarded.
Sure Kansas should be considered good if they win the Big 12. But what about the winners of the SEC, Pac 10 and Big Ten?
It would be difficult for BG to be in the title game if they were undefeated. Boise State from last year is a perfect example. They went undefeated and got to play in a BCS bowl but couldn't play for the BCS championship because they weren't in a BCS conference. If Boise St. were in the Pac 10 and went undefeated, they would be right in there.
The system is designed to keep teams that aren't in a BCS conference and are not Notre Dame out. Kansas may be playing a BCS schedule but going undefeated in a BCS conference makes them part of the conversation.
The winners of the other conferences shouldn't have lost any of their games. Then they would have made the Kansas situation moot.
