Yeah, there's no bias. Just different forumulas that give more and less weight to different factors. It's also that the BCS isn't that great until all games are played (same with RPI for college basketball). You get goofy stuff mid season as some teams have hard schedules early on, and easy ones later on and vice versa. It sorts itself out for the most part by the end of the season other than not really being useful for distinguishing between equal record teams at the top (which is the most important part). But there's usually no one or two team grossly over or underanked in the final one like there is in the first few.
Also, the Big 12 isn't over rated. It's the second best league to he SEC, and will be a lot of year with the teams they have. Not really any dead weight programs in there other than Kansas, and even they were in the Orange Bowl a few years back and Weis may get them turned around.
And no bias against the ACC, it's sucked for pretty much the entire millennium. FSU has been down, Miami has been down every since joining. VT had been the saving grace, but now they suck this year too. Beyond those teams, just some ok second tier type programs like Clemson and GT and a bunch of basketball schools. It will always be the weakest major conference and isn't going to put a team in the 4 team playoff very often.
Especially since they took two basketball schools (Pitt, Syracuse) in the latest expansion, when they could have taken teams like WVU, Louisville, Cincy etc. from the Big East that would have brought both good basketball and improved the football side of the league.
