Greatest team in college football history?

Posted: Dec 30, 2018 7:58 PM
 

Will the winner of next weeks game go down as the greatest ever? We will be the first 15-0 team ever. Top 2 in both offense and defensive efficiency. Arguably one of the greatest defensive lines in history. I think if bama wins the pundits take less than 5 min to crown them the greatest ever.


there were some teams in the late 1800's with 15 and 16

Can't forget 15 - 0 Penn State from 1897!


Hahaha

If we watched those game we might not recognize the game...

...we'd probably be asking ourselves if it was some sort of weird rugby game.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, Alabama will continue to be the GOAT.

Even if Bama loses they are still the best team ever.

Bud Wilkinson's Oklahoma teams... They were undefeated in 47 consecutive games...

what was their best year?


Posted: Dec 30, 2018 8:10 PM
 

did they have a top 2 offense and defense? The winner of this game will also be undefeated.


in national media it'll only be if Alabama wins

It works that way for some reason. Everyone said USC in 2005 was the best team ever but then when Texas beat them, nobody called Texas the best ever.


thats kind of what i'm thinking


Posted: Dec 30, 2018 8:15 PM
 

But i think when we look back at this team in 20 years.. we will be amazed at how many all americans we had on the field at the same time.. they might not be all american's this year but soon


Depending on your criteria, 1944 Army was most dominant...

Beat their opponents by an average of 52 points a game. 56 point scoring avg, holding opponents to 4 pts a game. Second was 1949 Pacific, I think third was 2013 Seminoles.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1949_Pacific_Tigers_football_team
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_Florida_State_Seminoles_football_team

Now, if you want to go earlier check out Michigans 1901-1905 teams, or Tennessee's late 30's teams. My favorite college football stat of all time is Bob Neyland of Tenn coached 216 games and won 173. About 100 of them were shutouts. THAT is defense.


i dont really have a criteria but i would imagine you'd need


Posted: Dec 30, 2018 9:44 PM
 

a top offense and defense to even be considered.. That army team seems pretty stout based on those stats but i don't really know much about them. I was thinking one of those fsu teams with maybe 96 or 99.. they had warrick dunn and peter warrick, boulware and a few other i'm sure on D. charlie ward was the 96 qb and 99 had Weinke


don't forget 1995 Nebraska***

Yale, and with plenty to spare, not even anyone else close. 17 titles, I believe.


We'll take a que from UCF and declare ourselves...

My all time heartbreak award goes to the 1905 Michigan team

Look at the scores of their season, then the last game. Dude committed suicide he was so distraught over "causing" their loss, no lie.

Here's a photo that was taken at that game in 1905

1995 Nebraska was better, for starters.


Re: No


Posted: Dec 30, 2018 11:16 PM
 

That is still probably the greatest team I’ve seen in my lifetime. What they did to #2 Florida in that championship game was unreal.

I just looked it up. 1995 Nebraska played against 4 Top 10 teams that year, including undefeated and #2 Florida in the title game. The average score was 49-18. After seeing that as well, they have my vote as the greatest in my 40 year lifespan.


Now, if you just want wins you have a choice. 2 teams have

won 16 games. 1894 Yale went 16-0, straight up. The 1899 Chicago Maroons also won 16 games, but tied 2 other games in an 18 game season.

These things need time, but espn will annoint Bama best ever. Some of those Miami teams were crazy good with NFL HOF'ers

Even with what's happened the last 4 years, I have no idea how we didn't win with Boyd/Hopkins/Watkins/Bryant/Ellington
