If we nut up and recognize 1908, we have more titles than they do it is ours after all



ThAt is the one thing we will never do. It’s embarrassing to retro claim like two sec schools do. It cheapens the legit ones and makes folks wonder why you’d do it in the first place.

Now Alabama.com has articles where folks are scratching their heads on why they reached for six extra championships. It’s not a good look to reach for respect. It never works out.

FSU and Miami had runs that are better, and they aren't blue blood either.

A reminder that when a team ranks in the lower half of the SEC in defense that will automatically preclude any consideration of goat

re: Best Team Ever promulgated LSU to Blue Blood
it's very simple. Just go by the poll era, which started in 1936

Michigan, Nebraska, and Tennessee are 3 “Blue Blood” programs that are no longer Elite. They are “Has Beens” and most like “Never Will Be Agains”.


Give ya Nebraska, but Michigan & Tennessee have the resources to pop back to elite with one solid hire.

Especially Tennessee.

re: Best Team Ever promulgated LSU to Blue Blood
Hell yes LSU is a blue blood. Didn't take the best team in college football history to say that either. This program has too much support, talent base, resources, and tradition to not be a blue blood. LSU football is elite. Hey, any of you other frickers want to tell me the last time your program had a season like this LSU team? Never, bc it's never been done. Let the awards, records, and wins vs top ten teams in one season speak for themselves. This is the best team that's ever been assembled in cfb and that's not just my opinion, that's from many respected experts opinions on the game. Just deal with it, or don't, get a dog to help you cope...idgaf. geaux tigers!!!!

re: Best Team Ever promulgated LSU to Blue Blood
Thats the point ... the titles don’t matter.., thats not what makes you a blue blood. And thinking that it does is why you never will be one.

Its about dominating a region with your brand and having pockets of followers all over , loyal ones; band wagoners don’t count. Your brand being synonymous and a draw with college football. No matter your record.

Clemson, UGA, LSU... others can arrive and may even become dynasty’s for a while... but only certain schools can be “back!” Those are the blue bloods. They make the networks pay! If you dont get that; then you just don’t understand.

Think about this... Notre Dame has 500 international Alumni chapters, and NBC pays out Millions for 7 home games. UGA cant do that; and neither can LSU.

The titles are the goal; they just don’t make your blood blue!

Edit- One other thought; if you have to argue that you are a blue blood.... YOU ARE NOT ONE!!!

American Blue Bloods:

Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt & Mellon etc

America’s current elite wealth:

Buffett, Gates, Zuckerber & Bezos etc


Generational vs new.. New Money over Blue Blood all day long, but that’s just my opinion.

Both would be nice, but let the blue blood title go.. it’s not there & it’s not the real prize.

LSU to Blue Blood



Will never happen. That door is closed. It closed around 1980. Blue blood status is dependent on accomplishments from the 1930s through the 70s. Everything else is new money.

As an LSU fan, I’m fine with that and would not trade LSU’s success this century for, say, Michigan’s or Notre Dame’s blue blood status and accompanying decades of mediocrity and irrelevance. I’m happy with “new money” status because it reflects program success that I get to witness and enjoy with my kids, rather than hearing stories about it like fans of most of the other blue bloods who are my age.

re: Best Team Ever promulgated LSU to Blue Blood
"Blue Blood" is a made up term given to the programs that won a lot on broadcast telivision when the Baby Boomers were young.

The Boomers in the broadcast booths and pregame show desks remember all those teams as being great when they were kids, so they still get talked about like they're great programs now.

Once the Boomers die off, nobody is going to give a shite that Michigan and Notre Dame used to battle it out in the only primetime game of the week or that Texas won lots of games every year aginst teams that are Group of 5 programs now.

The concept of a Blue Blood in college football does with the Boomers, and they're well on their way to retirement life already. Not a status to reach for.

It gives them the fallback of saying things like... "well we're the winningest team in the history of blah blah blah" when they have a down year. I have zero respect for them.




do you really think LSU is different?

If all the people I see wearing LSU gear when I drive through LSU went to school there, then that must be a terrible education.

re: Best Team Ever promulgated LSU to Blue Blood
What have I said that's wrong?

Teams that have lots of skins on the wall from before the Boomers' time? Like Minnesota, and Princeton? Not Blue bloods.

Teams that put up lots of wins for the first time after the Boomers time? Like Oregon, Clemson, and LSU? Not blue bloods.

Teams that won a lot of games in the 50's, 60's, and 70's? Blue bloods.

It's that simple.

John as I posted before the poll era goes way back before 1936...

The idea of the AP poll being the be all end all is because it was the AP and put in each newspaper.

The idea these voters saw all the teams play to have an idea on who to vote for is a total joke.

Football was not on tv every weekend, at most just like the earlier polls taken is they could see maybe 10 games a season.

Even in the 1960's one could still not see many games with TV on the weekend. It was not like today at all 1-2 games max a day on Sat. Tv until Jan 1st.

Oh that max of 2 is if your local town or city had more than 1-2 channels.
