[quote]Ole Miss only got 3 selections in 1959. Miami and Nebraska both had more selections than Auburn in 1983. [/quote] Fair enough. The really difficult part is the idea that those teams were probably the "best" teams of those years. Hence, my comment about remembering them. But sometimes t...

Pretty good. I see you've imposed some hard line criteria - no love for Ole Miss 1959 or Auburn 1983. I am in agreement, though I think these teams should be remembered, as well....

[quote]Michigan is the worst of all though, claim 11 when only 2 are recognized by the major polls.[/quote] Their point-a-minute teams changed CFB, but they never beat a really good eastern powerhouse during that era. Their championship claims are debatable, but the problem of that era is that...

[quote]hell we won in 1908 and no one gave a damn. [/quote] LSU did not "win" anything in 1908. We won all our games, sure. We declared ourselves "champions of the South," yes. But nobody around the country thought LSU was the best team. In fact, the debate was between Penn and Harvard. Those ...

[quote]the 1917 gt team didnt grab the attention of the country[/quote] I just said they did. They were the first consensus national champion from the south. That is an undisputed fact.

[quote]1919 TAMU[/quote] Got all the WWI vets back. 1918 was the weirdest year in CFB. A lot of teams didn't play. Others played shortened seasons. The best athletes were fighting. 1919 was the return to normality. I think 5 or 6 teams claim titles from that year, not to diminish A&M's accomplish...

re: Teams Claiming More National Championships Than They Should (Updated OP) - TxTiger82
The polls are no doubt flawed (for instance, 1983 Auburn has a great argument for that). However, between 1936 and 1997, the two poll system is the most historically consistent criterion we can use. Between 1997 and 2013 it is the BCS, and from here on out it is the playoff. The really diffic...

Post-integration. Happened between 1967 and 1973 in the SEC. Before that, who cares? Those teams couldn't hang with modern teams. It was a different thing altogether. ...
