But the problem is who decides who the best 8 teams are.

Then you are out of luck because win loss records can be inflated. And it sounds like you want to go with that.

Not sure what year you are referring to but they play in the SEC which is the best conference in CFB.

The inflated records come into play when judging a team using polls. It's something you have to take into account. That's why you won't see an undefeated Boise over a one loss-SEC team. You can't judge teams while taking into account an inflated record if you just base it off the records itself.

Also think how drastically different the NFL would have been with power rankings instead of confences.

The SEC is the best but it wasnt always the best and it want always be the best. Case in point the ACC is no longer the best BB conference. For 20 years they put a team in the final four.

Right, so you judge it on a yearly basis. All this is taken into account with polls.

No I really won't. I am one of the few that is "pro-BCS." But if it did go to a playoff system I wouldn't make it an automatic bid system.

The difference between conferences from year to year is largely due to perception and reputation. There really aren't a whole lot of games between all of the major conferences to say for certain which conference really was better in each individual year. When comparing the top teams from each conference the teams from the historically strong conferences are always going go be judged stronger based off of past performance, and not so much on the season at hand (ex: Alabama vs. Oklahoma State)

Polls that prerank a team before a snap of football are ever played and polls that are biased by a media (espn) with mega-contracts to certain confernces(SEC).
