I think LSU should be higher than Penn St. UCLA should not be higher than Washington...:shock:

Good Job. Something else to debate...:D

The authors of this article made a very significant qualification for their list...only seasons after 1936 are considered. That completely erases the Knute Rockne era at Notre Dame (and also 3 of Alabama's national championships, Aaron. Eight of Michigan's). If it wasn't for that, I don't see how you couldn't put Notre Dame at number one.

And where is Texas Tech on this list??? How quickly we forget the NINE Border Conference Championships they won. Not to mention the two SWC Championships!!!!!!!!!


Just kidding.

Great programs on that ESPN list. Does anyone remember Texas and Texas A&M in the Southwest Conference. Nebraska and Oklahoma in the Big 8 or Penn State before the Big10. Ten years from now, we still probably see all those teams in the BCS or playoffs.
