The Niner - greatest college football programs

By Mark Thomas

College football season is upon us. My favorite time of the year!! Especially since August means I don’t have to roll around in the grass in 100 degree weather, wondering if I was going to be employed by the end of the week. For college football fans August means anticipation of what could be for the upcoming season. So let the trash talking begin. I give you…..

The Top Nine College Football Programs–

9 –Ohio State Buckeyes– I know the tradition of Buckeye football runs deep. They’ve been dotting the “I” for a long time. I can’t remember Woody Hayes though. Recent success knocked Texas off the list.

8 – Florida State Seminoles – Dominating the ACC since they joined the conferece in 1992, the Seminoles have won two national championships.

7 –Michigan Wolverines – They have the longest current streak of winning seasons at 40. Losing to Appalachian State last season almost totally knocked them of this list.

6 –Notre Dame Fighting Irish – Thank you Lou Holtz. He went 100-30. Losing their last 9 bowl games is a disgrace. Three National championships since 1970 keeps you around at least for the time being. Charlie Weiss better be for real, or you will be considered the most overrated sports organization in history.

5 –Alabama Crimson Tide– The most legendary coach in college football history, Bear Bryant, keeps the Tide around. With only 2 SEC titles since 1990, many don’t even put them in the top 5 in there own conference. 4 national titles since 1970 makes me remember why they’re still on this list.

4 –Oklahoma Sooners – They are back in prominence in the Big 12. And if you look at the 18 conference championships since 1970 when Nebraska was the premiere program, amazing.

3 –USC Trojans – 5 national championships and 18 conference championships since 1970. Enough said. Pete Carroll is 11-3 verses top ten opponents.

2 –Miami Hurricanes –The “U”. 5 national championships and they played for 4 others. Get used to it. They can recruit in a 10 mile radius from their campus and get the best players in the country.

1 –Nebraska Cornhuskers – 5 national championships and they played for 6 others. The winningest college football program over the past 50 years.

Honorable Mention –

Texas Longhorns

Penn State Nitney Lions

Florida Gators

Georgia Bulldogs

Tennessee Volunteers

1 Ohio State 0.75955 431 132 13 576

2 Nebraska 0.75783 457 144 6 607

Actually it is Ohio State by a hair over the last 50 years, although Nebraska has played more games than anyone in the last 50 years they are not the most winningest program.

But as soon as you take the time constraints off we all no who is the most winningest college football program of ALL-TIME is. ;) ;) ;) ;)

ok how about u erase the calahan era, cuase i have already...then lets see whose program is better and more dominate. the coaches we had sucked, they were the worst, Nebraska rarely used pads in practice unlike back then they used to clobber each other and made men out of themselves and became all americans, but calahan made ******* out of our guys and made our team suck for 4 years, now that BO is here, i KNOW we will go to a bowl game every year

See that is the difference between great programs and decent programs all are coaches are legends and icons, you want to erase some of your teams past all of Michigan past is great that is the difference between decent programs and great ones. ;) ;)

it might be after this season with the offense u run becuase the guys u have arent fit for that offense

Seems like you know alot about our offense, but do you happen to know anything about our defense or defensive coordinator by chance?

Offense is only 1/3 of the game of football the other parts are defense and special teams.

i know that michigan has a good defense, but a defense can only hang on for so long

Now I have proof you don't know anything about football.

Defense wins championships, and offense just scores touchdowns. History has proven that, **** just look at the Super Bowl this year.

ok so lets say u face a great offense, ur going to let up alot of points, so how is ur offense suppose to catch up when u have no offense...also i dont believe in defense wins championships cuase if u have the offense ur going to wear down them and just put up points like no other...

Have you not watched the National Championship Game the past 2 years? Florida destroyed Ohio State with their defense, as did LSU. Yes you have to score points, but you also have to stop the other team from doing the same.

You've got it completely twisted- Having a great offense is nice, but an offense can only hang for so long. The Gators had a top 5 offense last year, but lost 4 games because of a horrendous defense that couldn't stop anybody. All the opposing defense has to do is stop 2 or 3 drives and if you can't stop them from scoring there's nothing you can do but sit and watch the clock expire.

Defense is much more important to winning a championship than an offense.

Thanks because I really did not want to have to explain that.
