BCS Watch: Selection Day

Today is the day. I don't envy the voters who must decide who qualifies for a BCS bid. The responsibility is huge. Hopefully they take it seriously, unlike, say, Craig James, who treats his AP vote like he's gumming on a baby toy. Here are profiles for 16 teams who have either already earned a BCS bid or are under consideration for one. I left a few teams out. You can probably figure out who and why. I type this not knowing if some of the teams will qualify for a bid when tonight's standings are released. We'll find out soon.
