Totally thought this was going to be a NCAAssassin thread...
That's cuz the west has the top teams. You could lose two conference games and not even make the title game. Don't see it happening but it could
Well, no shit. Alabama is working on history this year as there has never even been a 3-peat....
And there still won't be
What this shows is the programs who are truely the elite of the elite group. Oklahoma, Nebraska, Miami, USC, Alabama, and Notre Dame really are the elite programs.
Ohio State, Michigan, Florida, LSU, etc, are up there as well, but they have not had multiple dynasties. Having on dynasty run is hard enough, let alone two.
fsu was amazing in the 90s, but the braves comparison is right. they were always right there...if you add an undefeated season or two in that run, they probably take the cake
that said, 10 is too low for sure
FSU had an unbeaten season
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
If we didn't have dumbazz Larry Coker as our coach, the run in the 00's would be a lot better..

Needed 1 more title for top 3 consideration, top 10 is very solid for FSU
The Saban run is the best in terms of a level playing field. They are playing in a tough conference and all the titles have been decided the fairest way possible- no. 1 vs. 2. They weren't "awarded" their titles. If they win a NC this year, its a no brainer.I'm not a cfb historian, but I assume based on vague recall that the rest of those teams played in a shitty conference and won a bowl game against a much lower opponent.
You should read up on the history of college football to understand just how dominate those Oklahoma and Nebraska dynasties were. When Nebraska literally destroyed the college football world they played in a tough conference. People always view the current state of teams thinking that is the way it always was. That is so wrong it is laughable.
I'll take your word for it. The OU team might have been good, but crap Minnesota won a couple back then. How good could football have been then if the Gophers were a power house?
As far as Nebraska- I'd say 4 out of 5 is better than 3 out 5. Did you play the no. 1 or 2 team for the NC in any of those years? Also wasn't the last NC controversial?

1997 National Champions - 1998 Orange Bowl - #2 Nebraska 42, #3 Tennessee 17
1995 National Champions - 1996 Fiesta Bowl - #1 Nebraska 62, #2 Florida 24
1994 National Champions - 1995 Orange Bowl - #1 Nebraska 24, #3 Miami 17
1971 National Champions - 1972 Orange Bowl - #1 Nebraska 38, #2 Alabama 6
1970 National Champions - 1971 Orange Bowl - #3 Nebraska 17, #5 LSU 12
1995 National Champions - 1996 Fiesta Bowl - #1 Nebraska 62, #2 Florida 24. Take note of that score. That offensive line never gave up a sack the entire season.
Thanks for the research. I am now informed.
One of your titles came after not winning your own division. So there are things to knock for both programs.
No. 1 still played No. 2.
Psu was far and away the best team in 94. No dynasty for Nebraska.
I loved Kijana Carter as a kid. They were scoring like every 2 minutes
The way things were done before the BCS LSU vs Alabama would not have happened.
That was a great team for sure. Would have been enjoyable to watch.
So you don't think Nebraska was dominant?
Braska was tough no doubt. Not the best in 94. First one to give props to great teams. Bama Rollin now. That's a dynasty. The 94 psu team was one of, if not the most explosive offenses is college fb history. Lost points in voting cause joe didn't run up the scores and put back ups in early.
