Posted Monday October 29, 2012, About: Severe SEC Bias in the BCS Poll
Problem with that statement - it's now the way the polls actually work. For example, an SEC loses, they fall 4 or 5 spots in the poll. An ACC team loses, they get less respect - they fall 7 spots in the poll. So if a Big XII team loses, they should be treated like an SEC team, right? Or at worst, split the difference, right?

Wrong. The Big XII team falls 10 to 11 spots in the polls. THAT is bias. I never said the ACC was the best conference - the SEC guy threw that out to try to change the subject. The facts show that teams from other conferences just don't get treated the same as SEC teams - even when the SEC team LOSES. Beating them does NOT solve the problem, apparently!
