What I take from this is that Ole Miss sucks, and they are definitely the little brother in their state.

So UGA likely passes UF in poll appearances this year and might pass SoCal and Nebraska for appearances at #1. Nice.

It's almost as if the poll results have nothing to do with the term "Blue Blood".

The team blue blood means a program with historical top echelon success.

I guess if you're arguing most of Texas' success is pre-1974, sure, but in that case so is Yale, Princeton, and Minnesota.

To start, I'm an Alabama fan.

Texas is a blueblood, Tennessee is not.

This is true because the term has no specific definition. Everyone can make up their own list of "blue bloods" according to whatever criteria they choose. That makes it useless for anything other than trolling. "My team is a blue blood." "Your team isn't a blue blood".

Bama’s not an SEC blueblood? That baseball natty done made the Vols lose their mind.

Being a blue blood is about when you were good. It's the teams that were good when college football started getting popular, games were starting to be played on TV etc.

And the teams that got televised are mostly what is known today as the blue bloods. These are the teams that built college football into what it is today, they generally have more fans because that's who people saw on TV in the big games, etc.

So, Yale, Princeton and Minnesota were too early, and the teams of today are too late.

It doesn't mean best teams or most championships, etc. If you wanted to make a list of teams that were historically great or something, then the list would be different. And if you were to do one for best programs of the last 20 years, it would also be a much different list.

It honestly doesn't mean much, maybe outside TV type contracts etc. But the actual blue bloods are set in stone.

There are 8 blue bloods and Texas is one of them.

The SEC went from having 1 blue blood in the conference to now having 3. Alabama, Texas and Oklahoma.
