    Overrated now?

    Oki St
    TCU
    Auburn
    LSU
    Stanford
    Wisky
    ND
    Miami
    WV
    FSU

    agreed with that, I think ND will be a good team this year though

    ND historically was overrated because of the huge Catholic voting and media machine.
    Of their Heisman winners, maybe 2 would have won if they'd played for any other team.

    Bama and USC virtually tied for 70s supremacy.

    Bama won 3 titles, but just 79's was close to unanimous, the other 2 were split with other teams.
    USC also claims 3 titles from the decade, but only the 1972 title is pretty much uncontested.

    Before the BCS era many titles were pretty dubious, thankfully our 1980 title is uncontested though.

    True....But until after the 1973 season, National Titles were awarded before any bowls were played.

    Don't see a link to the article, but I don't know how anyone could say OSU and USC are over-rated. Both of them have been consistently at the top for decades. Michigan has been irrelevant for a long time, same with ND.

    I'll give you USC. OSU? Nah. They're consistent, but it's not like they're Alabama....even though they beat Alabama in 2014 on their way to a title.

    They should be winners with that weak-sister schedule they play every year that has at least 9 guaranteed wins wrote all over it. If they don't win at least 9 or 10 every year, it's their fault.

    They were Bama back in the 70’s. They owned college football back then. A little lean in the 80’s, then have been at the top for the last couple of decades.

    True dat, but USC's 1972 championship ended when they crushed #3 Ohio State in The Rose Bowl.

    Surprised UCLA hasn't been mentioned. Except for being in LaLa land with some LaLa HC's....not much to be said about them..

    UCLA will not we overrated as the commentators drool all over chip kelley with their obsession

  • pgjacksonpgjackson Posts: 8,928 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    UCLA hasn’t done squat since the Troy Aikman years.

  • UnderDog68UnderDog68 Posts: 3,109 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Texas has been overrated for at least 10 years.

    Michigan? (Jim Harbaugh most overrated coach)

    Paul Hornung was the only Heisman winner that came from a losing team. You guessed it....a 2-8 Notre Dame team in 1956. And what mega-star did they overlook? Jim Brown of Syracuse, of course. All because of what you posted about the Eastern media and racial bias.

    Fellas,

    The national media does this to keep the mid-west fan base interested. The same can be said for teams in the SEC, West, SW, and NE. Their mission is to attract a wide audience for TV ratings. Period!

    Whether it is listening to talks shows, reading articles and reviewing ratings, I always consider the source.

    Been a few days since I read the article but I believe they used overrated in the context of finishing lower in the polls than what they were predicted to at the beginning of the season. If I have that right then that makes what Alabama has done even more impressive.
