    Who would be your Top 5?

    I have trouble putting Ohio State at #1.

    Mine would be:
    1. Alabama
    2. Oklahoma
    3. Notre Dame
    4. USC
    5. Ohio State
    (Titles matter a lot to me.)

    Here are some key ranks for reference:

    If we go by AP or Coach's Poll national championships, here's the list since 1936 (when we actually started having recognized polls instead of "claimed" championships):

    Alabama (11): 1961, 1964, 1965 (AP), 1973 (Coaches), 1978 (AP), 1979, 1992, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2015

    Miami (5): 1983, 1987, 1989, 1991 (AP), 2001
    Nebraska (5): 1970 (AP), 1971, 1994, 1995, 1997 (Coaches)

    Oregon is catching up. Dammit.

    CSU is tied with Santa Clara.

    CU would of been in the Top 20 in 2005 but the recent fall from grace has really hurt. I would say if you looked at the teams 16 to 20 that CU was consistently in that company.
