It might have been 80 %. I told you guys that the Ivy League ( yet named) was the SEC of early CF.....phony college students, buying players, win-at-all-cost sleaze. Some Ivy League big shot once said " we invented everything that's wrong with college football "
in 1906 : Alaama was in its 15th season Arizona -8th Ariz St 10th Arkansas -14th Army -17th Auburn - 15th Baylor -8th Boston College -11th California - 25th Central Mich -11th Cincinnati- 22nd Clemson -11th Colorado - 17th Col State -12th
As you can see just about all the majors of today had well established FB programs and I've only gone, alphabetically, through Cs from the CF encyclopedia. Add in all the defunct programs that played back then and the smaller, less known colleges and yes- CF was well established. So why does it pain you so much to give the spots most dominant teams any credit at all ?
Nice start... you only have 186 more to go to have "Hundreds".
It doesn't pain me at all to disagree with you. Especially when you're wrong.
1906 Yale didn't WIN all their games. C'mon man! You can't be "most dominant" when you didn't win all your games.
Maybe, we just disagree on what "most dominant" means... I think, by definition, it includes a lack of competitive balance.
It was probably the 1905 Yale team , Bevo, that the Serius discussion group named the single most dominant CF team of all time, or perhaps the 1909 team. Can't remember
05 Yale was 10-0 and outscored its opponents 227-4
09 Yale was 10-0 and outscored its opponents 209- 0
Could have been 1894 Yale which was 16-0 and outscored its opponents 485-13
Right... well, the ESPN/SEC cartel also provided the Buckeyes a few opportunities. The last two ended up in goose eggs.
I have to say, to me... it is downright hilarious to hear Ohio State fans claiming they don’t get fair consideration in CFP selection.
It is true the last two Big10 teams in the playoffs weren’t able to score a single point.
Ohio State has been given 2 CFP opportunities 1 win 50% Clemson has been given 4 CFP opportunities 2 win 50% Bama has been given 5 CFP opportunities 2 win 40%
ACC has been given 5 opportunities 2 win 40%
BIG 10 has been given 3 opportunities 1 win 33%
SEC has been given 6 opportunities 2 win 33%
BEVO CONF has been given 4 opportunities 0 win 0%
P12 has been given 2 opportunities 0 win 0%
Since the start of the selection process there 14 of the 20 teams have gotten a so called mulligan (1 loss) and were still selected. SEC 4 mulligans - all 4 got Selected ACC 2 mulligans - both got Selected P12 2 mulligans -both got Selected B12 5 mulligans - 3 got selected B10 7 mulligans - 3 got selected G5 3 undefeated teams - Not even close to a consideration
2 years ago the BiG completely dominated the Bowl Season winning .875% if their Bowl Games. Both the SEC and ACC were under .500. Based on that you would think the BIG would have some Good Will equity but clearly that was not the case especially when you consider a 2 loss UGA team that is not a conference champ was rated ahead of 1 loss Ohio State team that was a conference champ.
I am sure that the committee takes their job seriously but I find it very hard to believe that these so called experts are not tuning into to the ESPN\SEC network and taking in their agenda based rationale of who is worthy.
Over the last two years the Big 10 is winning there bowl games at a 75% rate while the ACC and SEC are hovering at 50%. With these facts if you can't see there may be a bias in the selection process well then so be it. Until they come up with a different solution I am with Hen on this this the mythicalCFP.
