As far as the BCA rules go, the bottom corners MUST BE DIFFERENT.  This
means: stripe at one corner, solid at other.  8-ball must be in the
middle, as shown, and the rest is immaterial.

Everyone you know is wrong.  The two balls in the last row *have* to be
different according to BCA rules, the rest of the balls (except, of course, for
the eight) are irrelevent.  Of course, if you are playing by some other warped
set of house and/or bar rules, will, this just may be right.  I say don't
bother playing eight ball at all, but that's my opinion

If anyone is interested, when I played in pool competitions in england the 8ball racking pattern was as follows (s=stripe, t=solids -- or spots, as we call them there)
            s
          t  s
        s   8  t
      t   s  t  s
    s   t   s  t  t
