  1. It shows 9 for USC and 7 for OU. Your link only credited USC with 5 national titles and that even included the 2003 and 2004 teams. (I’d say the championship for the 2004 team was legit and the one for the 2003 team was bogus). I’m anything but a fan of USC. But these are the years where they claim national titles prior to the BCS: 1928, 1931, 1932, 1939, 1962, 1967, 1972, 1974, 1978. The NCAA link doesn’t recognize USC’s claimed championships for the 1928 and 1939 teams. Shall we examine those seasons?
  2. Also, I don’t know if it’s perfect but I’m basing my gauge of winning percentages on this site (it’s a useful resource): https://stassen.com/football/records/
  3. That link is crap. USC claims 11 national titles. Two are disputed. Oklahoma claims 7. tOSU claims 8, not that it has anything to do with this discussion. I should have been more clear when I said the AP naming of USC as national champions in 2004 was bullshit. That was for the 2003 season when LSU beat Oklahoma in the BCS title game but the AP voted USC #1 anyway. (It can get confusing when the final games are played after New Year’s Day.) After the 2004 season, USC beat Oklahoma to win the BCS championship but that win was later vacated due to NCAA sanctions. As far as I know, those are the only two disputed national championships on USC’s record. I enjoy studying college football history so if you want to get down in the weeds and examine every claimed national title on a case-by-case basis then I’m game. In the past we had multiple national titles based on different recognized bodies nominating champions. Split national championships weren’t all that uncommon. Get your notepad and pen and follow this link: https://www.ncaa.com/news/football/article/college-football-national-championship-history
  4. About this. It was a reference that the announcers made to Fielding Yost’s 1905 book, Football for Player and Spectator. Skip Holtz’s Birmingham team lined up in the T formation a couple times. I think they scored a TD out of it once. Anyway, the announcers were prepared and shared this photo from the book: In a previous broadcast I heard a couple references to Pudge Heffelfinger. So there are some nods to football history.
  5. Okay, Sooner. Even if you take away the disputed national championships. And yeah, the AP lost the right to award national championships with the advent of the BCS and the Trojans’ claim to a championship in 2004 is total b.s. But taking away any disputed national championships, USC still has more than Oklahoma does.
  6. Just how much time do you spend watching other men pee?
  7. No idea. All I know is he still has the same mediocre QB who at times looks like maybe he can cut it but, when it comes down to it, he can’t. Never found. Also, what the hell just happened? I mean, the game was basically over but I thought there were still a couple minutes on the clock when my local NBC affiliate just cut to the news. Also, *Lulz.
  8. Luis. And Patterson just threw the game away.
  9. Michigan just tied it at 10 all. I’m not rooting for either of these teams. I’m just watching football in the spring. But, yeah, I’m definitely not rooting for Michigan and Shea Patterson.
  10. Another weather delay.
  11. Who fucking cares what Alex Jones says?
  12. I’m rigid on 2, 1, 3, 4, 5. But the fact that season 5 is the least of the seasons in the best series ever isn’t a huge indictment. It’s obvious that they were running out of material. They knew it was the last season and they set some things up. Some of it was hokey but some of it was as powerful as anything they ever did.
  13. Patterson lucky that throw didn’t get picked. Guy just never learns.
