Homers? Which NCAA Football teams have the best home records?

Posted on September 5, 2015, in Everything Else, with 0 Comments

The Wall Street Journal just published a list of 127 NCAA football teams and ranked them according to which teams had the best home field records. It may surprise you not to find the likes of successful teams like Oregon, Alabama or The Ohio State University ( the first undisputed NCAA football champion in NCAA history) but instead many from some of the smaller conferences.. Topping the list is the North Texas Mean Green who are 39 and 1 in Apogee Stadium (pictured). Second, and no surprise to this Big Ten fan, is Wisconsin. Now the home field itself isn’t the only factor when determining home field advantage.. One has to assume that the quality of the officials, the crowd, and schedules would have something to do with it. If you wanna see the entire list of 127, go to this link http://www.wsj.com/articles/who-has-college-footballs-biggest-home-field-advantage-1441405838 , Otherwise browse the top ten list below:

NCAA College Football Champions Since 1999 – you may be surprised

Posted on January 15, 2015, in Everything Else, with 0 Comments

In 2014, the first NCAA College Football Championship Tournament resulted in The Ohio State Buckeyes earning, what many call, the first undisputed national college NCAA Division 1 football champion. Different polls and systems have declared national champions based on algorithms, guess, coaches voting and in some cases, perhaps pixie dust. In the 2000's more than a dozen systems have been used to determine the college football national champions (or at least the best team that year), including the Anderson and Hestor system, the BCS, the Dunkel system, Berryman system and the Eck to name a few. Since 1999, there have been only 5 (including the Buckeyes) that were named by all the polls/systems as champions. Interestingly one of those teams, the 2004 USC Trojans, had to vacate the championship and as far this author knows, no replacement was named (Oklahoma,Auburn,Utah and Boise State were undefeated in 2004), though Auburn is generally recognized as the champion that year) Here are the champions recognized from 2000 -2014:

List of Undefeated Sports Teams

Posted on March 1, 2014, in Sports, with 1 Comment

A perfect season is a sports season including any requisite playoff portion, in which a team remains undefeated and untied. The feat is extremely rare at the professional level of any team sport, and has occurred more commonly at the collegiate level in the United States. A perfect regular season (known by other names outside the United States) is a season excluding any playoffs, where a team remains undefeated and untied; it is less rare than a complete perfect season but still exceptional. Here are a list of teams that either won every game including the playoffs and championship -- as well as those that just won every regular season game:
