McFadden had a great highlight real that spanned multiple years.
Manziel of course only had 2 years but it was hella good.
They'd be my #1/#2.
I'm discounting Cam because 1 season, no matter how great, isn't enough to qualify for a college "career" recognition. There's no doubt had he actua...

If history has taught us anything is that college football is very much a coaches game. The head coach really does make all the difference.
You're one great hire away from being great and one bad hire away from sucking.
There's also the NCAA hammer floating out there, but they've become pretty...

The biggest "swing" is 92-93-94, because of the 93 forfeits, which is of course lol.
Besides, there's a difference between "consistent" and "consistently good"
As I said earlier, a team could go 4-8 every single year and not a single one of their fans would go around bragging about their consi...

Those graphs also include forfeited/vacated games which is pretty misleading and leads to some dramatic "swings" that don't really exist.
Besides "consistency" means nothing in a vaccuum.
Your team goes 4-8 every year for 30 years and you're the most consistent program in the country, you also...

You gotta try to look at things from an Auburn fan's perspective. They're in a difficult position when when your huge, most hated rival also happens to be one of, if not the most successful college football program in history.
It's like you gotta invent things in your mind to talk about other tha...

With 4 gimmie non-conference wins it takes quite an effort to have a losing season.
Probation or a horrible coaching hire, or both.
If you told me that neither LSU or Alabama would have a losing season in the next 20 years I'd be inclined to believe you.
Really no reason either should....

That mountain of facts can't be overcome. 95 Arkansas was the worst team to play in the SEC title game and it's not even close.
| SEC Rant|| re: Worst Division Champion in SEC History? - IAmReality on 4/1/14 at 11:51 pm|
Using pure margin of victory is a bad measure for how badly a team got beat.
Getting beat 35-3 can be worse than losing 56-17, depending on how the game goes.
And a 3 point conference loss @ Kentucky is a hell of alot better than a loss to an otherwise winless SMU team.
I don't give a crap ...

Easily the worst team to have played in the SEC Championship. Several flawed teams have made it, but none come close....
| SEC Rant|| re: Worst Division Champion in SEC History? - IAmReality on 4/1/14 at 5:36 pm|
it's 95 Arkansas, they went 8-5 and they were gifted a free win against Alabama that year via a last minute 4th down TD pass that was clearly trapped, but no instant replay back then so free win.
Otherwise you're looking at 7-6.
And has been pointed out, they got blown out alot and also lost t...

Saban could finish his career with nothing but 0-12 seasons and have nothing left to prove.
He's already accomplished more than 99.9% of college football coaches who've ever coached.
He doesn't coach to "prove" anything, to himself or anyone else.
