This is a really OLD bone to be picking but..

in 1948 two teams went undefeated, Michigan and Clemson. Michigan did not go to a bowl due to conference rules at the time while Clemson went on to defeat Missouri(8-2) in the Gator Bowl. So Clemson played one more game that season than Michigan but came in second in the AP voting, primarily due to sportswriters of the time being largely based in the North and Northeast and biased against Southern schools.

So it SHOULD have been Clemson's third NC this year. Just sayin'.

Guess I'm giving a shout-out to the Undefeated Tigers of 1948!!!

I agree. My Dad was on the '48 team - Gene Carson*******

Agreed!! However the national champion was crowned before bowl games back then. Better system now. It was kind of like giving out the heisman before the entire season is over.

What!? That would be stupid.

How could you suggest such a thing?

A champion crowned before the bowl games is maybe the dumbest idea I've ever heard

Clemson was ranked #11 in the final AP Poll in 1948

I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.


I don't think those ranking are the final rankings.

I believe they are the first rankings of the year.

Clemson wasn't even ranked going into the 1948 season.

Aspen's off a cliff if they find out Clemson has 3 Nattys

Michigan beat 4 ranked teams, Clemson beat only 1.

The more things change, the more they stay the same !

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg link

Bama would dang sure be claiming it...

as a National Championship.

As a side note, I believe Clemson did finish first in one poll in 1948.

I never could understand this one either. Argonaut1992 is correct that Michigan beat more ranked teams but how do you have a North Carolina team end up ranked 3 with 2 losses? Makes no sense... Same conference? Wow.

Clemson is the only team to finish 11-0. Only two teams finished undefeated, Michigan #1 and Clemson #11. And that IS the only reason Michigan has 3 titles and Clemson 2. Definitely should be reversed.

You are correct - things haven't changed much but thank goodness we have a true system now. No telling how many Clemson would have had with this current system.

The 48 team needs to get honored somehow.

Many schools would claim that one. I, for one am glad that


Posted: Jan 27, 2017, 6:42 PM
 

both of ours are beyond question. For example, I think Bama and some others have cheapened their overall nattys by claiming some bogus ones.

Didn't know this.

So we are 48 champs. No way around it in my mind .

Thanks

Bama has eight or ten NCs due to stuff like that.


Posted: Jan 28, 2017, 6:35 AM
 

Clemson has more class than claim a NC unless it's declared by everyone.

Absolutely! It bugs the #### out of me

when the media throws around that number of 16 for Alabama's National Championships. It's disrespectful to the teams that actually won the National Championship on the 7 or 8 that they claim with no true right.

In 15 more years, we will have more Natty's than Bama. :)

Suck it Bama.
