My Take ...  Archives


(EDITOR: First published on 14 December 2013.  Here is a re-publish. We need to get to eight teams for the most "perfect" way of getting a "true" champion in college football)

Last season marked the final year of the BCS.

The BCS had been in place since the 1998 season as the consensus method of determining the MNC (Mythical National Champion). Prior to the 2006 season eight teams competed in four BCS Bowls. The BCS replaced the Bowl Alliance which was the "system" in place from 1995–1997. Prior to that we had something called the Bowl Coalition from 1992–1994.


Another Trivia Question ...

We will ALWAYS have: "What team was the LAST to play for a tie in CFB (0-0) and the FIRST to play - and WIN - in OT (beat Fresno St).


Oregon was the only school in 2014-15 to make the post season in football, basketball, and baseball.

In college football, Oregon :
A - has the nation's longest Top 25 streak at 9 straight seasons:

B - is the only team in CFB to win 9+ games in each of the last 9 seasons (including 2015).

C - has (as of the 2016 Valero Alamo game) 67 games of 40+ points since 2009. A wide margin over the next closest team to do so...

D - owns the NCAA record for consecutive games with a TD pass (81 as of the 2016 Valero Alamo game) dating back to 4 September, 2010.
