Arkansas was once a solid program. Here's where they ranked at the conclusion of each decade:

1960s: #16
1970s: #15
1980s: #16
1990s: #19

Been a rough decade.

Dodd hated Bryant and thought GT would be the southern version of ND.



Dodd hated that Bama is Dixie's football pride and not GT. He took his team out of conference that ultimately costed them millions, might even be billion by now, in revenue over the decades. And why? His ego.

This is true about him hating Bryant, but he never wanted to end the rivalry


He absolutely wanted it to end after Chuck Granning.He was furious at Bama and Bear

quote:

He pulled Tech out of the SEC when the SEC ruled that all conference members had to play each other 2 times every 10 years.


I've never heard this and I know his main issue was scholarship limitations-which Bear allegedly agreed to and then reneged.

Florida is in zero way a better program than us. Not even remotely close after Monday.


Florida has 3 National Titles since 1996 to our one. That is the difference that quite frankly be ignored. That's the only reason its so close


The title is program rankings, not program rankings since 1996. You have decided to reward "recent" history over which is fine if you want to do that, but the reality is that when ranking a program title one won in 1980 counts the exact same as one won in 1996. Florida no longer has more titles than us, nor a more recent one. They have nowhere near as many sec titles and are losing ground by the year in head to head. In fact there's very little that they actually have over us as a program, aside from winning 3 titles compared to 2 over the last 45 years, which is practically irrelevant.

re: College Football Program Rankings
It was well known that Dodd didn't want to play Ole Miss, Miss. State, and LSU. In fact, he never played Ole Miss and Miss. State in the regular season as long as he was the head coach at Georgia Tech. Played Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl one year and won. He did play LSU from time to time, but ended the series in 1962. The Darwin Holt-Chick Granning affair might have pushed Dodd toward the door, but the decree from the SEC office that every memeber had to play every other memeber twice every 10 years was the straw that broke the camels back. It was no Mississippi schools and no more LSU or he was gone, so he left. Holt-Granning was fuel to the fire.

At some point the statistics contain information so old that they are no longer relevant today.

So, I should squint to see a small or specific timeframe to suit your claims of relevance?

I believe the issue was traveling to those teams and it was somewhat justified.

Do you have a link for this? I cannot find any evidence to back it up and I'll be glad to provide links about scholarship limits and Darwin Holt. Here ya go

[quote]From that day forward, it appeared the mutual respect between the two icons was no longer intact. Tech won the following season, 7-6 in Atlanta but lost the next two meetings afterward, sparking rumors that the reason Bobby Dodd left the conference was to avoid the annual meeting with the Bear and Alabama. 


quote:

the 1964 season, the Southeastern Conference introduced the "140 Rule." The 140 rule stated that no league school could only have 140 players on scholarship in football and basketball at one time. This meant that some players would be losing their scholarships. Dodd protested the ruling, stating he did not feel it was the player's fault for not being good enough to stay on the team. The 140 rule went to a vote by the  University president's of each school. The final vote was a tie, 6 league institutions in favor and 6 against. It came down the vote of the  University of Alabama president. Bryant had previously told Dodd that he would convince the president to vote against the ruling. However, when the voting was held, Bryant did not make an appearance, the University of Alabama president voted in favor of the 140 rule. This was the final straw for Dodd and Georgia Tech.

Does shite that happened before helmets matter?

Rutgers really dominated back then.

Hell Notre Dame, Michigan, oU make playoff but stand no chance of winning them.

What glory is in that?

re: College Football Program Rankings
It’s all relative.

I don’t think all time rankings should be weighted based on a certain time frame.

The has beens are the has beens. Give it time and they will slide down the list.

So basically Alabama would have to stop playing football for 125 years for the other SEC schools to catch up.

Yes, yes it does. Sustainability, it matters. Businesses are measured this way.

Rutgers = Kodak
Bama = Coca-Cola
