I believe Michigan was AP National champion in 1948 and 1997.  Not sure what you are using to count those titles in your list.  
 

There have been a number of different national champion awarding publications/polls, not really sure there is a formal accepted standard for only 1 per season.  
 

Your list gives USC a title for 2003 when LSU won the playoff (the BCS was a 2-team playoff). 

Comment 11 Jan 2020

We just do not have any scorers.  Bad offensive team.  We will struggle to even make the tournament.  

We needs better players/guys who can score.  This is a team full of defensive role players.  

Comment 11 Jan 2020

Team just does not have enough scoring.  It an entire team of role players.  
 

I think Wesson was better then he was bigger and just sat in the post.  Offensively at least.  
 

This team has 0 pros.  

Comment 11 Jan 2020

I fully understand the rule.  I contend that it does not get called if wade’s helmet does not strike The QB’s.

I also would argue he did not “lead” with his helmet, it happened to make first contact as much due to the QB’s movement as anything wade did.  Wade dropped his head just prior to a big impact with a bigger player.  That type of contact/tackle happens all the time and does not get called.  
 

It was bullshit.  It was a petty, borderline call on a great play by Wade and the OSU D and changed the outcome of a playoff game.  If it was so obvious why was it not called on the field?  (Because it was a very fast, clean play that should never have been penalized). And on top of all that, it was not a play that have osu any competitive advantage, which makes the call and punishment even more out of proportion to the conduct.  It took the game out of the players’ hands on an arguable technical violation where no advantage was gained by the penalized player/team.  It was bullshit.  

Comment 11 Jan 2020

Agreed.  We are up at least 16 at half with all the momentum if not for that call, and play the rest of the game with Wade.  Not sure Clemson scores at all if that call was not made by the replay official.  

Hits like Wade’s happen all the time and do not get called targeting.  The refs on the field did not call it.  It was clearly not malicious or intended to be malicious, it was a DB trying to form tackle a big QB who ducked into head to head contact.  The call was against the spirit of the rule and, while maybe a technical violation, is the type that gets not called all the time.  And it was a play that did not give OSU any competitive advantage, it was just a tackle where two helmets happened to unintentionally collide during a tackle.  
It was a crap call that swung the tide of a playoff game against the better team and was bullshit.  Officials are supposed to enforce the rules and ensure the game is fairly decided by the players.  They took the game out of the players hands with that call.  Not to mention the blatantly wrong overturn of the scoop and score.  
 

The officials changed the outcome of this game against the better team with incorrect and, at best, very questionable and borderline calls.   

Comment 10 Jan 2020

Overturning the scoop and score was incorrect and could very well have cost us the game.  
 

No call against Clemson took points off the board.  
 

The targeting call was also questionable (maybe a technical violation but not called at near 100% consistency and was not called on the field.  
 

the wrong roughing the punter call also cost us big.  
 

the refs caused Ohio State to lose.  We also caused is, but without the bad calls and everything else the same we win.  

Comment 09 Jan 2020

Can you “leak” that a lawsuit has been filed (which is all public documents and information)?  
 

Seems more like an opportunistic attorney attempting to help his client by painting him as a victim and Georgia in a bad light. 

Comment 09 Jan 2020

Teague is serviceable and his lack of elite talent will be hidden by elite talent all around him, and I expect that he will produce under those circumstances.  But he is more Boom Herron or Brandon Saine than he is Dobbins or Zeke or Hyde.  If Snead was around he would likely be the starter. Would not be surprised to see someone else take a chunk of the carries next year as well, maybe Crowley.  

Comment 03 Jan 2020

With all respect, Arhens is not a player who is good enough to play a major role on any decent team. He had one game where he hit a bunch of 3s, but he cannot riddle or defend.  There is a reason  he does not really play.  

Comment 03 Jan 2020

Team still struggles to score at times.  If Washington is not hitting his shot, there is no other consistent outside shooter.  Not a ton of offensive talent, guys who are just natural scorers. Would like to see Liddell get more time as he may be the most talented offensive player on the team.  
 

We are clearly a better team with Kyle Young, who brings energy and rebounding and hustle and simply makes many impactful plays. 
 

would love to see the offense run through Kaleb in the post a bit more when things get stagnant, as that tends to open things up.  

Comment 02 Jan 2020

You propose to create a new conference/division of the top 7 teams only and in any given year only those 7 teams have any chance to win the national championship?   
 

with respect, that is one of the worst ideas I have ever heard about college football.  
 

Comment 01 Jan 2020

Beanie Wells would be a star in any system.  I think we have very different views of how good Beanie was.  I would take him over any RB  of the last 20 years other than Zeke and Clarett.  

Comment 01 Jan 2020

Teague is not in the same universe as Beanie Wells.  Did you watch Beanie Wells?  Teague is not as fast a beanie, and is not even close to the ball carrier.  And Teague could be a solid guy, comparison to Beanie is way off.  That comparison is incredibly insulting and underappreciative of how good Beanie was.  
 

Beanie is one of the best RBs to ever play here.  Comparing him to Teague is like comparing Borland to AJ Hawk or James Lauranatis.  
 

Comment 01 Jan 2020

Lol.  Teague is possibly Beanie Wells?  And you clarify that that might not be a bad thing?  Beanie Wells is One of themost talented RB to ever play here and was a force from the outset, arguably the best RB in the nation as a true sophomore.  Master Teague is not even close to the same universe as Beanie Wells.  I would take Beanie over Dobbins in terms of peak ability/talent.  
 

That is like saying Tuf Borland might become AJ Hawk, and that is not a bad thing.  

Comment 01 Jan 2020

It was obvious in his first game ever that JK was a special player.  
 

Teague is not in that league of talent as a runner.  Of course he could improve, but his weaknesses (lack of agility or wiggle and vision) are not really areas that one can usually I mprove on, they are more physical/athletic  limitations.  He could be serviceable surrounded by great players and behind a very good OL, but there will be a huge drop-off from Dobbins to Teague. Unlike those star RBs we have had, he is not a guy you can just give them ball to and ride to a win.  Teague is much more Ross, Saine, Herron, than he is Hyde, Zeke, or Dobbins.  

Comment 01 Jan 2020

With respect, I think Teague is an average player and is not talented enough to be the primary back here.  He got some good numbers mostly in games very much decided against bad teams who were worn down.  But he has no agility, wiggle, and no ability to make anyone miss.  He is pretty strong but just puts his head down and runs into whatever is right in front of him, blockers or defenders.  He is strong and runs hard, but he is not close to what we had in Dobbins.  I look for Crowley or someone else to slow.y overtake him as the primary RB over the next year or two.  Teague reminds my of Lydell Ross or Brandon Saine.  

Comment 30 Dec 2019

Blasting UM by 30 in the Big House with a new coach and new QB and when some thought they actually had a chance.  Delicious.  
 

The entire seasons was great until the meltdown in the Fiesta (and by that I mean the all of the various things that went against OSU, self-inflicted, referee inflicted, and pure bad luck, that collectively sealed the loss).  Thinking back with a couple of days to reflect it is amazing the number of things that went against OSU.  Literally everything that could go against us did, and we were throwing into the endzone to beat mighty Clemson at the end despite it all (only to suffer the final misfortune of the broken-off route by our best WR).
