Is the Bowl Championship Series out to get the Western Athletic Conference? That would appear to be the case. The commissioners of the six BCS conferences voted this week to expand the at-large pool of teams from their conferences from 14 to 18.
The decision, as explained by the BCS Guru, created yet another obstacle in Hawaii's quest to earn a berth to one of the BCS bowls.
Hawaii athletic director Herman Frazier and WAC commissioner Karl Benson are taking the high road, but maybe they should be considering legal options.
Frazier said colleagues from non-BCS schools have warned him that the big conferences will do anything within their power to keep Hawaii out of a lucrative BCS game, even if the Warriors go 12-0.
Benson has hired a consultant to help get the message out about the conference, but if the Warriors finish the regular season 12-0 and don't get invited to the BCS party, expect the WAC to scream bloody murder.
