Moving Past Notre Dame and Texas?


Bowfin

Recommended Posts

This was the number of all time wins of the top four programs in college football before anybody played today:

 

 

1. Michigan 915

2. Texas 884

3. Notre Dame 882

4. Nebraska 881

 

Texas lost, the other three notched another win.

 

Nebraska has a very good chance to move past Texas this season, and an outside chance to jump over Notre Dame.

I went through HuskerMax's W/L records for all 127 (counting 2016) years of Husker football. Add 'em up and you get 887 wins.   I'm betting Stassen is accurate, then. That means we're two games beh

The Nebraska media guide for this week has:   Michigan-932 Notre Dame-894 Texas-889 Nebraska-887

I have found the "official counts" split 50-50 on this since looking at it last season. I guess there is one "official, official" total, but there is some gray areas.

 

Here is one that lists Yale as #2:

... just like national championships, with people claiming national championships where none exist..."Why hello, Texas A&M! We were just talking about you!""

Found the following article from August 27th of 2016 (read: before this season began) that uses stats from ESPN for their work:

(Rank) (Team Name or Appropriate Representation) (Wins Before 2016 Season) (Wins as of 10/24/2016) (Total Wins)

 

1. Michigan 929 | 7 | 936

2. Notre Dame 893 | 2 | 895

3. Vermin 888 | 3 | 891

Nebraska 884 | 7 | 891

5. Ohio State 878 | 6 | 884

 

Looks very conceivable that we will pass the Vermin this year, considering they're not very good. Then again, the Big XII is a dumpster fire of epic proportions that no one would piss on to put out, so the Vermin may steal one or two that they, were they in a real conference, had no business winning.

 

Notre Dame isn't very good, but they'll probably get at least six wins (NC State, USC, Army, Navy), so we won't catch them this year.

 

And unless we have another 5-7 season, it will probably be a few years before Ohio State catches us. Then again, by that point, Urban Meyer will be feigning another health issue and move on to greener pastures.

 

And Michigan will keep on rolling and will likely be the first team to 1K, but still will not have won a National Championship since 1948.

It's very possible (could say probable) that Nebraska and Michigan will play for the Big Ten championship as the two most winningest programs in the history of the sport. Possible with a National title opportunity on the line.

I don't know it's going to be tough to get past ND. They have to lose out and we have to win out

Good post, I was wondering what the totals were while watching the K-State / Texas game this weekend.

Let's all remember that Michigan has played more than its fair share of home games...a tradition that apparently continues to this day (given that our team will have played in Ann Arbor three times before the Wolverines visit Memorial Stadium a second time). Indiana and Michigan State used to travel to AA for decades at a time without return trips by UM football teams.

Brings up a good point. What's the deal with the Big Ten's "no sense, no pattern, random, draw from a hat" scheduling?

I don't think Bowfin's data is 100% accurate though...
