The system is bad and a few teams get screwed every year.
True, the system is crap. What I don't get is why Cal feels like they go "shafted" because UT got the bump with the same record. Someone had to get the shaft...
"Same thing happened to Texas last year."
Yeah, same thing. And Texas, in usual overrated Big 12 fashion, came out to play an underrated Washington State team and got your ass handed to you out here. Texas acted like they had never seen a legitimate blitz, and your quarterback spent the whole game running around and getting buried. Texas was completely overmatched by Washington State. It doesn't add up that you guys were screwed last year. You were overrated, just like Oklahoma was, as was the rest of your conference that went, what, 2-5 in the bowls?
