Cumulative BCS rankings

I assigned numerical values for final BCS rankings for each year since 1998 and calculated totals by team and conference as follows #1=25, #2=24, #3=23, etc. Final BCS rankings 1 through 15 for the years 1998-2002 and 1 through 25 since 2003.

These rankings should be viewed considering the following:
 - They are an analysis of the regular season since they do not include bowl game results.
 - It is impossible to know how the teams would do in different conferences.
 - Teams that finished ranked 16-25 during the years 1998-2002 are penalized by the final BCS reporting methodology.
 - Major conferences ranked by averages and Mid-majors are ranked by totals.

Oklahoma has been very consistent during the regualr season while USC has been very good since 2002.
