"Take these three items, some WD-40, a vise grip, and a roll of duct tape. Any man worth his salt can fix almost any problem with this stuff alone." - Walt Kowalski, Gran Torino
So, given the standard that most of us have advocated, the following bowl games would be erased from our history:
1944 Sugar Bowl 5-2-2 Loss
1953 Cotton Bowl 6-3-3 Loss
1959 Liberty Bowl 7-2-2 Loss
1969 Liberty Bowl 6-5 Loss
1970 Bluebonnet Bowl 6-5-1 Tie
1987 Hall of Fame Bowl 7-5 Loss
1990 Fiesta Bowl 7-5 Loss
1998 Music City Bowl 7-5 Loss
2001 Independence Bowl 7-5 Win
2004 Music City Bowl 6-6 Loss
2006 Independence Bowl 6-7 Loss
2007 Independence Bowl 7-6 Win
So, some interesting observations:
+ The standard most of us have advocated appears to never have existed (effectively).
+ Two of our bowl victories would be erased.
+ However, we lost most of these bowl games anyway (9 in total).

It is what it is. I feel that the BCS puts the idea in the fans' heads that these other bowls are meaningless.
i still say these games have been the worst in recent memory however i do admit, that not having a "home" crowd takes a ton of the emotion away as well as the exciting atmosphere that makes college football great.
