    Looks like we're finally getting into the big-time programs. ... The rankings thus far:

    16. Miami
    17. Army
    18. Texas A&M
    19. UCLA
    20. Navy
    21. Pittsburgh
    22. Stanford
    23. Ole Miss
    24. Clemson
    25. Wisconsin

    Only one SEC team so far ... that's a bit of a surprise ... and one Big Ten.

    Sorry, but Ole Miss ranked in any big-time football list? The Kansas of the SEC?

    That means 10 of the remaining 15 (tossing Vandy out) are SEC. </hoops>

    Marvin reaches for his copy of the college football enyclopedia and mumbles something about Earthlings in his best martian voice ...

    Ole Miss: Consensus national champion 1960 (although AP votes named the 1959 squad the SEC Team of the Decade), six SEC titles, 15 first-round draft picks, 19-12 bowl record (14 New Year's Day appearances), two Mannings.

    Kansas: No national titles, last time was co-champion of its conference was 1968 (obviously no Big 12 titles), eight first-round draft pciks, 3-6 bowl record (just two New Year's Day pperances), one Gale Sayers, pretty darnn good basketball team.

    actually 6 of the remaining 15 -- no mississippi state, south carolina, kentucky, arkansas or vandy

    seriously -- georgia, florida (though they are the nuvo riche -- they're still riche), tennessee, alabama, auburn, lsu -- that's not a bad list

    hold up. miami has the 16th best college football program?
    um, from 1980-now, miami is EASILY top 5.

    i would assume notre dame is #1, michigan and osu are top 5

    but if we see a school like pittsburgh or something ahead of miami because pitt was good in the 50s ... well, that's a joke. miami's been a force for 25 years straight now.

    and if miami is miami of ohio - whoops!
