I preferred the 90s decade rankings. I'd like to be better than 28, but it could be worse.
For the record, the number 89 team deserves a new stadium.
Hmm interesting list...
IMO, I can think of several other programs on that list that should be higher than the Butthuskers
Well Army was right behind us at 29. It's better than 89th but if we are only one spot better than Army...
AP started in 1936. Army was a powerhouse that first decade.
Edit: FYI. This ranking wasn't opinion. It was just adding up all the AP points for the 75-year period.
I hope that means in 2070 ( 80 years after our powerhouse era) that we will still be at least 29th.
Why the **** does Toledo deserve a new stadium?
4th in the Pac 12 behind USC, UCLA and UW
I'm holding final opinion until 'gasm posts the top 100 teams from the editors of Cat Fancy.
CU's ranking by decade
30's: ORV (Others Recieving Votes)
Not bad only two decades we weren't listed, and one of them is only two seasons old. Come on Embree, lets turn this thing around!
:rofl::rofl::rofl: at CSU being behind Iowa Pre-Flight and neck and neck with Bainbridge NTS, Raldolph Field and Del Monte PF. What a bunch of irrelevant ****ing losers those goats are.
Was actually surprised that Oregon was high 40s since the ducks sucked for 80ish years. I am happy that the ducks are 1 st and 12 th in the last 2 decadess.
I love how the buffs are so high even after struggling recently and i had no idea how good you guys were in the 90s. Hopefully you can get back to your old winning ways and knock USC down a few notches.
If only our coach stuck around after 94.
I'm glad I was there. however, I no longer care. I want to be good. Now.
Colorado came very close to two more national titles in '89 and '94. '95 and '96 were pretty damn good too!
In 1971, Colorado was and still is a part of college football history. We finished #3 in the country behind Nebraska and Oklahoma. That is the only time a conference has finished 1,2,3 in the national polls. Not even the SEC has accomplished that feat. Our only two losses that year were to Nebraska and Oklahoma. We beat Ohio State and LSU on the road.
The loss to Utah in 1961 may have also cost the Buffs a national championship. Buffs won the Big 8 and finished the season 9-1 and ranked #4 in the country.
Buffs were about .014 strength of schedule points from playing for a national championship in '01
Major failure by the BCS system that year. Nebraska should have not been in that title game. I'll listen to an Oregon argument over CU in 2001, but the Noids had no business getting a shot at the championship.
I think Oregon blasting us in the Fiesta Bowl drove that argument too. ESPN and other sports outlets were saying we should have been there. I remember Oregon's coach got in trouble for comparing the BCS to cancer but most of the talking heads thought we should be there.
Then the buffs got beaten down by that piano player.
Last game of the season too.
Hey guys, I feel bad for Colorado College. Listed close behind CSU hurts. Especially because they'd probably beat them.
I think that Miami team was too good for us, but it would have been nice to play that game.
That Miami team was one of the best ever. But you never know what can happen on a single night under the lights. Kind of like when Ohio State found a way to beat an equally impressive Miami squad to steal a national title.
The moment I first started to hate tOSU. The refs gave them that MNC.
Oregon belonged in the National Champioinship that year. They were a one-loss team that won their conference Championship. I think Illinois was in that discussion too. Neither Colorado, or (especially) Nebraska belonged there.
That Miami team was ridiculous. One of the best all-time. Remember what they did a ranked Washington team a few weeks before?
Probably and example of not having a championship game hurting. If Oregon had another win against a high ranked team (no idea who was second in the Pac that year) they probably would have gotten in.
I've always been perplexed by this. The Pac-10 teams seemed to have a hard time getting in the NC game but the Big 10 seemed to get more than they should.
Agree, and Oregon should have been there, but Colorado should have been there with a win over Fresno. Who knows though, I have a feeling Nebraska knew they were not supposed to be there. I think Oregon or Colorado would have given Miami a better game than the fuskers did.
