BCS, Bad... Playoff Good

I know that the BCS doesn't claim to be perfect, but I think the bowl matchups this season show how completely flawed the system is.  All season long, we've been hearing experts talk about how the Big 12 south is the strongest division in football, no argument here.  I've seen Texas Tech, Oklahoma, and Texas play this year.  Those same prognosticators have said that the Big 10 is very weak this year.  Again, not gonna hear any quams from me about that.  So someone please explain to me how the big 12 and big 10 got the same number of teams in BCS bowl games with 2??? It's ludacris.  I know rules state only 2 can go per conference, but I'm not arguing the rules, I'm just saying it's wrong.

Texas Tech is ranked 7th in the BCS standings, ahead of *both Penn State and Ohio Sate, at 8 and 10 respectively.  Now, I get that there are traditional conference ties with specific bowls, but this is just asinine.  Texas Tech has 1 loss this year, to the number 1 team in the country.  Ohio State has an 0-and-2 record against other teams in BCS bowl games, and a recent reputation of being blown out.

Now the true test will come, when the games are played, and thank goodness the Buckeyes are playing a big 12 south team in their matchup, Texas, who's only loss this season, by the way, came to the Red Raiders.  My solution isn't new, they only do it in every single other sport... a playoff.
