If you wanna pull a Pool C bid out of the MIAC, a team would be best served to bring a regular season record like St. John's did in '04-'05 (not that it's impossible - see St. Thomas in '11-'12.)
Anything can happen in a given conference tournament, for instance, and a couple of upset wins in one of those those events can easily undo the RS, and award wildly exponential value to 2 or 3 games over a weekend. "A win is (not) a win" under this system; those two wins end-up > than the entire body of work that preceded them.

Except in the WIAC and ECAC-W, a win is a win and a loss is a loss as they don't have the AQ.

I want to live forever. So far, so good.
To your "point", the FBS system was a lot better than the coach's poll, and a better metric than any other major college sport uses.
Sure, people had problems with it, but I'd guess that those folks never did the math. (Eg, just because some peoples' heads exploded when TCU won their last game a couple of years back and was overtaken by a team one spot behind them which had a better win that same day, didn't mean that TCU deserved to stay where they were, on the basis of an entire season.)
That sort of statistical integrity is what many of you apparently fail to appreciate. The last game you play counts no more than any other game you play, if you are evaluating a single season in a logical sense.
