who is the country`s second best program right now?

as much as i wish Bama`s program would implode they have clearly been the best program in college football the last five years with three natty`s,but who would be number 2?

candidates i can think of

1. FSU 1 BCS and a current No.1 ranking
2, Oregon consistently winning 10 or more a year
3. Auburn with 1 BCS and 1 appearance but there was 2012
4, LSU consistent 10 wins and a BCS appearance. also a conference title

FSU isn't even a top 5 team.

From taking the temperature of tRant this week, I'd say it's probably Mississippi State.

Your question is not clear. Are you asking about right now or over the last 5 years?

I'm shocked... shocked that you put Auburn in the top 3.

Since you mentioned "last 5 years" in your OP, I would say Oregon should be #2 purely based on winning percentage and ability to media whore.

Alabama, Boise State and Oregon have a much better winning percentage over the last 5 years than any other schools. Clearly Boise is playing inferior competition. Some will argue that about Oregon but I think they've done enough against OOC schools to back up that rate of winning. They just couldn't close the deal against Auburn.

Auburn is #20 in winning percentage the last 5 years. FSU is #10. Bama is #1 by 3 percentage points.

Do you live in Oregon or just like the way alpenglow looks on Mount Hood?

i used the last five years because it`s recent history of the state of current programs, but if you want to project forward go right ahead.

that`s why i included AU`s 2012 debacle but does two SEC championships and two natty appearances outweigh that.

I'd definitely say Auburn with two Natty appearances. But they were sandwiched around one complete shitshow of a season.

Awesome. I go to Mt. Hood Meadows but not nearly as much as I did before my daughter was born. Lived out here for 12 years now.

Meadows and Bachelor are great places to ski but don't get too many tourists because there's no slopeside lodging and they don't really advertise outside the Northwest. March is usually the best month to ski as we have a lot of base by then and a very long season relative to everywhere else.

It's hard to say with Auburn right now. I need to see more of this season progress.

I think they are a 2 loss team. Top 10 for sure. Top 3?

The West is going to cannibalistic as hell this year. I don't think any team is going to survive without at least one loss. And no, I'm not saying that because LSU lost. We were going to lose 2 this year no matter what. Now 3 losses seems likely.

I see Auburn losing the Iron Bowl and one other game - probably to A&M or LSU.
