    Athlon Ranks the Top 25 Football Dynasties of the AP Era

    1. Oklahoma Sooners (1948-1958): 107-8
    2. Nebraska Corn****ers (1993-1997): 60-3
    3. Miami Hurricanes (1986-1992): 78-6
    4. Alabama Crimson Tide (2008-Present): 61-7
    5. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (1941-1949): 75-7-6
    FSU should be higher IMO and should have started in 1987 and not 1992. Solid list overall though. I always wonder how our all-time championships and win totals would have been if we didn't play NU and OU (up until 1997) every year.

    kinda hurting a bit to round out the 25....an excellent 3 or 4 year run is not really a dynasty imo. Mac from 88-94 impresses me more than Vince Dooley's 4 best streak at UGA or Neb's 3 years at the end of the Devaney era. at the very least, it shows a sustained program (which, admittedly, Devaney had...in the 60's and you have shoehorn in the 71 team i guess)....more than a nice few recruiting classes and things going good.

    heck, for a dynasty i don't think you can bookend the definition with one Senior class. it's got to be sustained.

    CHS was a disciple of CPB and his transformation of UM is most impressive. He was thought to be the pick to replace CPB at UA instead of CRP. SIAP but I hate ND.

    Boise, Va Tech, and TCU as Best of the Rest are a joke. Seems like you probably need to win at least ONE national championship to be considered a dynasty.

    If CU were at all relevant today, our 88-96 run would be at least in the honorable mention category.

    Agreed, although it really shouldn't matter

    Just did a quick look at 87-96. We were 93-22-5. Not a bad run with NC in the middle.

    In addition our non-conf. schedule was kick ass back then.


    Boy do I miss the good old days.
