Re: Up and Coming Programs in NCAA Football 09

Not to sound like a homer, but using Rutgers this year should be fun. You have some semi-rebuilding after Ray Rice and losing 3 Senior Offensive Lineman, but you have two great WRs and a SR QB.

Plus with our schedule and how many good recruits NJ has it should be good times. A first year 9-10 wins should be attainable.

Re: Up and Coming Programs in NCAA Football 09

I think Miami has to be on this list also. They dominated college football a few years ago and then have recently have had their major struggles as everyone knows. But they will turn alot of heads this year and next year be a serious contender for the national championship. They have been bringing in big time recruits and the mentality has changed in coral gables. They will be a young team this year and next year they will be a scarry team!

Dynasty mode.
I thought that an all time winning percentage of nearly .700 (9th all-time), the second most number of bowl appearances all time, and 6 national championships made you a powerhouse. Say what you want, but you can't deny that is a solid argument.

It is a solid argument...but I have one very big issue with it.

Who awarded those National Championships? From my best estimation, Tennessee claims every National Championship the NCAA recognizes (which includes polls largely which did not exist back then). If you use AP National Championships, Tennessee only has two, one of which was 57 years ago.

I guess my biggest problem is the NCAA's way of recognizing National Champions is a bit strange. If every school would use the same system I would have no beefs, but some only recognize AP/Coaches/BCS titles and others recognize the other dozen or so polls which the NCAA lists. The best example that is fresh on everyone's mind I can think of is the 2003 season.

The NCAA recognizes LSU, Oklahoma and USC as national champions that year. What if all three decided to put that up on their scoreboard, because it's official after all?

This really has nothing to do with the original topic at hand but it is an incredibly interesting discussion.

The NCAA does not recognize a National Champion at all in FBS Football.
