    I've done countless sims and I've found the bowl logic to be pretty damn good.

    Weird.

    13-0 ohio state and 13-0 north Carolina. both user controlled but I mean really? #1 from game one only to be jumped in the last game of the season. when in history has the number 1 team dropped by winning its game and two spots at that

    always depends on the ranks they played too...if they both played top 10 teams (which u didnt) that's probably a big reason.

    FOund the ranking to be odd as well. I simmed a season using sjsu and ended up getting ranked 7 by the end of the year with 11-2 record. The next season, i had a 100+ ranked recruiting class and was ranked #17 preseason, lost my heisman trophy winner qb, best wr, best rb, and my top FS/DB rated in the 90s to draft/graduation.

    The start of the season stanford was ranked 23 or something like that. So i decided to play my games the next season to try to get #1 and get a national championship bid and by the half ot he season i got up to #7 by week 8 or so and in that time, stanford jumped up from 23 to in front of me at #3 before our game. I had beaten three ranked teams notredame, sdsu, and air force (yes air force) in first half of the year. I ended up beating stanford anyway to move up to #5 the next week, but thought it was weird they leap frogged me. Notre dame was a close game, but sdsu and airforce were beat downs.

    Luckily, all the undefeated teams ended up losing and i finished the season undefeated with a national championship. The weird thing is my recruiting class improved to #32 after my national championship year and retained my QB, my receivers, and most of my defense, but ended up not even ranked the next year.

    I dont follow ncaa football so no clue how its calculated, but thought it was odd i had a better recruiting class and retained key positions and didn't even rank when the previous year i had a terrible recruiting class and lost my heisman qb and stayed rank.

    what you have discovered is that, unlike the real life BCS, the video game has no SEC bias. So, in RL being bama is worth a couple wins in the polls automatically and we all know the ACC sucks..... In the video game, the ACC gets plenty of love and the SEC is just another conference. :)

    the bigg dawgg were you #1 in BCS rankings? If you didn't tab through to check, it would just go by the coach poll. I had this happen to me.
