What Does Best All Time Mean?
I was looking for different info and stumbled here. i am suprised it wasnt an all sec homer site. the info seems to be correct from what i have researched over the years. when researching i go to the individual college websites. i figure the universities would know more about the football program they fund, create, and support than some homer websites.
i noticed something about greatest football teams of all time and found oklahoma's 1956 team as 8th....
Here is my question. is the 1956 ou team thought to be the 8th best team ever in the sense if you lined them up with ou 2009 team the 56 team would win the game (a lot of size and speed differential)or is the 56 team who went 31-0 with its seniors thought of as being the 8th most dominant team of any era? im not sure what to make of the rankings. ou 1956 team seniors went undefeated in 1954,1955, and 1956.....freshmen were ineligible in that era to play.
if the rankings are for an individual year i would think ou defeating notre dame 40-0 (notre dames worst home loss ever) defeating texas something like 45-0 and nebraska 54-6 would have to be pretty dominating. i am aware those teams were down that particular year but all 3 have pretty much been top 10 all time programs from the beginning. only game ou had that was somewhat close was a 27-19 win at colorado. colorado would win the orange bowl that year. ou was ineligible since the conference didnt allow programs to go to 2 straight bowl games. i think iowa st stayed within 25 of ou for its 2nd closest game.
anyway thought i would comment and let you know i like what i have read so far.
