that's not necessarily true either. It does happen that guys get bumps when they are being recruited by bigger programs, but that's more 3* to low 4.

Interesting question: Most people on here won't like this answer, but if you mean what one team missed the most chances to win the title if there was a 4 team playoff from 98-13, I think it is easily USC.
2002 they were #4 in the final BCS. Their schedule that year was ridiculous, the only hitc...

Greatness is better judged over time, in my opinion, so that gives older movies or whatever we are ranking an advantage of sorts. While there have been good movies in the last 10-15 years, what sticks out as truly great? The 90's ranks up there with the great decades of all time, many consider 19...
