Etc... Those are just a quick couple I found, and shouldn't be taken as gospel. I was just showing that the lists can vary quite a bit based off of what your input parameters and weighting are.
I don't believe there is a such thing as a "best programs of all time" list, that's why you have to mention what you're basing the list off of. Just NC's? Ok cool, that list is going to look a lot different than one based solely on avg rankings through the years, winning percentage, total wins, etc...
BTW, they've been playing college football for a lot more than 50 years
Yes they have.
Also I always take "bleacher report" with a grain of salt. It doesn't help that the article is from 2010. BAMA has added another trophy to the case since then.
