With that said and from what I've seen on the boards though, I don't know how up to date the population report is.

The Beckett Pop. Report hasn't Updated since Dec. 13th, 2011. So, it was 2 months ago today.

I remember an article about the first BGS 10 Jordan RC back in the day (noted above) and various sales here and there but the majority of the ins and outs I only follow baseball.
I did find one thread on another forum (CU I think?) from about two years ago last night discussing one that was sent from BGS to SGC but I couldn't find anything about one going from SGC to BGS.
There are A LOT of BGS 9.5 Jordan RCs 200+ but I've always been curious to know how many Gem Mints are duplicates from people breaking a slab and resubmitting.

Has anyone ever sent a BGS 9 to PSA and received a PSA 10 before?

One thing is certain and that is the stated grading standards are tougher for BGS than PSA. A PSA 9 needs 65/35 centering on the front and 90/10 centering on the reverse. A BGS 9 needs 55/45 on the front and 70/30 on the reverse. One could intuit that a BGS 9 (and certainly a BGS 9.5) should have a good chance of crossing over to a PSA 10 and in theory be worth more money since it appears that SGC and BGS trade at a discount to PSA.
So why doesn't everybody do this? My suspicion is that most people believe PSA will never put a 10 on a competitor's card thereby confirming that the competitor has tougher standards. There are also enough "stories" out there that the cards come back from PSA with a lower grade because PSA determined it was altered, trimmed, or worse, they damaged it when they removed the card from the other slab.
