COLLEGE "BLUE BLOODS"

COLLEGE "BLUE BLOODS" 


So while listening to my local sports station here in Austin.. The guys were talking about College Blue Bloods.. The listed only five..  No particular order..

Texas
Bama
FSU
DA U
ND

This was the five that they agreed on.. After some compromising.

Now I haven't been following CF as long as some of you have.. So I don't have the foggiest.. I thought that it'd be a good convo topic for some here..

Who are your College Blue Bloods.. No order needed.. Top 5..

OSU is a good one. But in no way does Oregon belong in this conversation.

Re: COLLEGE "BLUE BLOODS" 


Notre Dame, Southern Cal, Alabama, Oklahoma are the top 4 in the first tier of all time. 

Texas, Nebraska, FSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Miami (FL), Penn State, Auburn, Tennessee, LSU are the next. Can debate.

To me, the term connotes old-timey powers who are still significant, so that would be ND, Michigan, USC, Oklahoma, Ohio State, and Alabama.

Re: COLLEGE "BLUE BLOODS" 


I agree with this.  The hard part for me would be how to keep Michigan off that top tier.  I dont want them there, but Its hard to argue that they aren't.  Statistics are on their side.

Re: COLLEGE "BLUE BLOODS" 


All time TOP 5, IMO

ND

Alabama
Texas
So. Cal
Oklahoma

Close call:
Wofford

Specifically out of contention:
Michigan---If they were as good as they THINK they are, they'd be a contender.
Penn State---Over the long haul, just mediocre
OSU---more deserving than either of the above two
FSU---only two NC's and they didn't deserve one of them

Proudly repping #5, Everett Golson. Let's get the season started

I think ND, Michigan are just outside. Maybe Ga, LSU, and FSU can be discussed.

My heart wants to put ND in it but no NC or Heisman in over 25 years I cant put them in it. I think Kelly has us in the right direction and can easily move ahead of OU and Texas again. Any opinions?

I agree with this top 5. OSU, Michigan and FSU would be my next 3 in.  LSU, Georgia, Miami, Penn State are on the outside of the discussion.

Michigan is not a top tier team....

Top tier team play games in Prime Time... No one cares about Michigan unless they play ND or Ohio State.

Second rate team in a 3rd world state

ND, Alabama, USC, OSU, and Oklahoma 

OSU has had many more great seasons/championships than Michigan, who are being considered more for their pre-1900 record than even post-1900.  Check the history. 

ND was in the NC just two years ago, and even though we didn't win, who will bet against ND winning at least one in the next 3 years?

Interesting that despite your statement on ND's recent no NC's or Heismen's you include Georgia in the discussion whose lack of NC's & Heismen's goes back even further & with much less totals.

Re: COLLEGE "BLUE BLOODS" 


Its not JUST about championships.  If they are really dog food then why are they ahead of us In total wins and only a thousandth of a point behind us In total win percentage?  Head to head against ND they own the all time series 24-16-1.   They have a better home and away record than we do In the series as well and the only neutral site victory goes to them.  They also won the first meeting between the two teams and the last meeting as well.  Also own the largest margin of victory within the series at 38-0 (twice)  and the longest win streak at 8.  Over the last 5 years we are 1-4 against them.   Little known fact....we have never shut UM out.  Like I said, statistics are on their side and I wish they weren't.  Since we are so high on tradition around here lets not forget that Michigan Is credited with teaching the game of football to ND, so without them would ND have ever developed a team so long ago?  Looking at the history of college football from beginning to present....Id put UM on that top tier.  But that Is just my opinion and Its OK If people dont agree.

Re: COLLEGE "BLUE BLOODS" 


Im hoping we do win one In the next three years but I would bet that the odds are against us.  So I guess you could say I would bet that we dont win one In the next three years.  Im not saying I dont want us to....I absolutely want to win one, Hell I want ND to win ALL of them.  But, I just think the odds are better that we wont.  The college football playoff system Is going to be very brutal.  You will have to play marquee teams during the season (NDs schedule has more than Its fair share) and likely come out unscathed.  But you will also now have to face two top teams Instead of one and I dont think ND has enough talent within Its depth to overcome that.
