The strange case of Georgia Southern

For years, Georgia Southern had a very good, even great, football program in what was first called Division I-AA, and now is called the Football Championship Series (I think they maybe need to revisit that change now that the former Division I-A also has a championship...).   Recently, they moved up to the top classification, and have excelled.

In fact, this year they won the Sun Belt conference with an 8-0 record in league play.  That's pretty remarkable.

However, it looks like the NCAA will not allow them to play in a bowl game, because they are still classified as a "transitional" team.

What could possibly be the rationale for denying a conference champion the chance to play in a bowl game?
