Ranking College Championship Football Teams from 1990-Present

This article here by the Omaha World Herald sports writer Dirk Chatelain sent bells ringing in my head and inspired a long email discussion with friends about 2011 LSU’s place in history. First, everything in the discussion was predicated on them beating Alabama in the National Championship. Personally, I don’t believe this LSU team is in the top 5 of the most recent era, say 1990 on, let alone of all time. So for shits and giggles I decided to rank all the Champions from 1990 to 2010. I included both teams any year there were splits or controversies (90, 91, 94, 97, 03).

I’ll be the first to admit that I did this quickly and off the top of my head. With deeper thought and analysis, I’d probably end up making changes. Some of those changes might even be drastic. So take this for what it’s worth, a quick ranking of team’s strength in my personal opinion. Leave any input in the comments section if you so desire.
