Hard to believe we are top 12 given our lack of success post Meyer


As well as lack of success pre-Spurrier!!! Florida's entire football history is from 1990-2008.

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


Actually, I believe they have more top 5 and top 10 finishes than we do. Plus, our 1942 title is slightly dubious. Florida has a pretty impressive run from 1990-2008. But I will agree that just because they crammed their entire football history into 18 years doesn't make it substantially better than Georgia's. I mean, it took them like 90 years to win a conference title!!!

There’s no way Ohio state is that close to Bama. I would expect bamas points total to be about 50% more than OSU. I mean Bama has had both bear Bryant AND saban.

The azzhole liberals and media in Atlanta (GT) were going to teach Coach Bryant and the SEC a lesson.

That sure worked out well for them.

Bobby Dodd was a moron and they should rename the stadium as he cost them Billions in future revenue and any hope of noteriety.

Fsu short of a few ill gotten acc championships did the same. They cant sell out Doak Campbell in good years.

re: College Football Program Rankings
The 1942 is not dubious at all to me, we were #1 in MORE than 50% off the NCAA recognized polls in 1942.

We were 11-1, won the Rose bowl

AP #1 Ohio State was 9-1 and did not play in a bowl game

Plus we beat fukkin Florida 75-0 that year, ha!

We had Sinkwich and Trippi

If we can get back on track, passing Nebraska shouldn’t be hard.

My first UGA-UF game was 1968. 51-0 Dawgs in the pouring rain.
As for 1942...Ohio St. was #1 in AP, and everyone seems to rely on AP, but AP didn't change their rankings after the bowls. Pretty curious. So, seems Georgia can rightfully claim at least a share of #1.

I dont know the methodology here but LSU ahead of Texas is interesting considering Texas is one of the 8 blue bloods.

I think you should really only count data post 1936 for a historical perspective.

There were 2 polls at the time and neither selected UGA (AP voted Ohio St and Helms voted Wisconsin).

Because the Big 10 didn't allow members to play in bowls at the time.

What kind of bull shite “formula” rating is this?

And why are you presenting it as fact?




He's been doing this for several years now. If I recall, this is based on his own formula. You can take it or leave it, but most posters on here have found it to be fair and pretty accurate.

If you have a problem with it say what the problem is and ask what the reasoning is.

You'll find when you approach it reasonably your questions will be answered and you might realize what the reasoning was. Most fans, after askign questions and getting answers have admitted that they understand and agree with his reasoning.

Or you can spew foul language, hold your breath without expressing why you are upset, and be ignored.

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



Maybe the 4th quarter Monday night was the start of that 125 years?

You do know that just because the polls existed did not mean they were relevant, right? I mean poll relevancy has changed over the years.
And for the record? There were more than 2 polls in 1942.

Your point? How is that anybody else's fault other than the BIG 10? Believe it or not the BIG 10 does not control everything. The BIG 10 didn't want to play football last year. How did that work out for the,. If they had not and the media had decided to name them #1 would you say they were National Champions? I mean, they had a really good team, but they should not have even been in their own Conference Championship game. The BIG 10 changed their own conference rules to allow them in and give them a chance in the playoffs.

re: College Football Program Rankings
Auburn had administrations from about 1930 until about 1954 that decided that football/athletics had no place in an academic institution.

They deemphasized all sports - really did not give a rats red azz - sort of like a Vandy without the medical school.

Those 25 years impacted all the long term, all-time records like this one. Frankly, I do not really give a rats red azz either - amateur sports has been pillaged and raped by the Nick Sabans and Boy Kirby's of the game - and though I played - I have lost all enthusiasm for seeing the massive cheating that has taken over

You can split hairs and call semantics all you want.

AP Poll, National Championship Foundation, CFB Researchers, Helms

All published rankings in 1942.

The Bulldogs were consensus national champions in both 1942 and 1980, but for both of those seasons, CFRA voters selected other teams (Ohio State in ’42 and Pittsburgh in ’80) as this organization’s national champions.

CFBRA

So they did not publish a poll? According to them AND the NCAA they did. Does this mean we won't be seeing you anymore?

And for the record all rankings are subjective.

ETA
Let me guess. We can only use the polls you recognize and not the ones the NCAA recognizes?
