FSJ, a basketball team is a direct relection of their coach, assist. coaches & how they're coached.

Gottfried is a players coach. He gets way too much talent to not be any better.

Did anyone see the Ivan Maisel video on ESPN.com?

He ranked the top 5 most prestigous programs in college football since 1936. It went like this.

1. Oklahoma
2. USC
3. Ohio State
4. Notre Dame
5. Nebraska

3:54 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

He has Alabama ranked 6th, and Auburn is 21st. That's behind Washington, Arkansas, Texas A&M, and GA Tech. WTF?

3:59 PM  
Blogger scott from tucson said...

some notables left off of that list: army, alabama (pains me to say it), meechigan. why 1936 as a cut off date? kind of skews the results.

4:03 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

He has Michigan at #8.

4:04 PM  
Blogger scott from tucson said...

washington and tamu is ridiculous. ga. tech would have to include pre 1936 records.

4:08 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

He used a point system that awarded a program points for things like the national title, and took points away for things like probation.

I still don't see how Auburn is below some of those schools on his list.

4:09 PM  
Blogger scott from tucson said...

washington has had probation problems, as has tamu. on the whole i think 21 is probably a pretty good guess, but, imo, there are other schools that might be ahead of au--definitely not washington and tamu (and i'm a big tamu fan).

Barkley,

I'm as big of an Alabama fan as anybody...
but any list that doesn't have Notre Dame ranked #1 or #2 all time is suspect, IMO.

And I hate them.

I know that they haven't done anything in fifteen years....but......USC, OU, OSU, & Nebraska have all had down periods.

As far as Alabama's ranking...I'm ok with that..but to cut off at 1936 is silly.

4:33 PM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

Yea, the cutoff should really have been 1935 because, well, I am not sure why. I just like that number better than 1936.

4:47 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

I was surprised Alabama wasn't in the top 5, but it didn't upset me. ;) After seeing some of the teams ahead of Auburn, I just quit looking at it.

4:48 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

On that ESPN Prestige Rankings, they only have Alabama accredited with 7 national titles. Why do all Alabama fans claim 12? That's quite a large discrepancy.

4:51 PM  
Blogger Inverness Chris said...

It sells shirts.

And when the argument comes up just say AU claims 2004 and they can have 12. Simple.

5:05 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

I assume the 1936 cutoff is because that was the first year of the AP Sportswriters' Poll.

As for the discrepancy between the 7 NCs Maisel credits them with, and the 12 they claim officially, four were prior to the advent of the poll system. The other was a pathetic joke, given to them 16 years retroactively by some guy named Deke.

It's about as legit as the 2004 People's National Championship.

5:25 PM  
Blogger ZteveFC (Live to Punt) said...

Counting bogus national champs is pointless. Heck, I don't know who the national champ was this past season. There were numerous teams that had valid arguments.

5:34 PM  
Anonymous FSJ said...

Freep,

I agree that 1941 is bogus. Of course the argument could be made that we were screwed in 1966 and in 1977. It's astonishing to think of how many more titles Bryant could have won.

However, Alabama has a legitimate claim to the four prior to 1941. Each team I believe was undefeated and played in the Rose Bowl. I could be wrong, but I dont' think I am.

Arkansas is terrible.

That said, the holding of the Hogs to 2 down the stretch was fun to watch and Vot had a great day.

Hope the Greek and Italian pro teams were watching...

By the way:
Tombstone though highly inaccurate is very entertaining. I think Kilmer got snubbed because he is a method actor with a reputation. The stuff Costner has thrown on a screen for 15 years amount to a crime and he should be punished.

What did you think of the basketball game today? I think Jeff Lebo gets a bum rap, but he also contributes to his problems, byt not going out aggresively to recruit bigtime palyers...

I've gotten slapped around for this, but I maintain if you parachuted him into several top programs ... he'd be battery acid because he can coach the game.

At Auburn, you have to do it differently, and that's not him. At Vandy, he'd be incredible.

He needs a program that has a history ... that has some built in advantages. North Carolina, Indiana, those types. He's not a guy who takes a program off the deck ... he's a guy who take a good program and make it better.

I totally agree.... but the sumbitch can coach and get the most out of what he has....there is no way any coach could have inherited what he did at Auburn and held it together as best as he has...
I will say this if he can keep the guys he has recruited and signed this class he has coming in will definitely make a difference, they are very good guys, with size!!!!

JAY G TATE - as indicated by the Leo Carson quote you provided last week, kickers don't get no respect. What's the scoop on Brian Egan of Prattville. He's only FIRST TEAM Parade All-American. Scout only lists 5 kickers. Although two are from Alabama, neither is Egan. You have to search by name to find him on Scout, and there's hardly anything about him.
Let's get him to Auburn! He can boom KO's and has great range/accuracy on FGs.
