Posts Tagged ‘Wallace Wade’

Alabama’s been playing football since 1892. They won their first Rose Bowl and National Championship under Coach Wallace Wade in 1925. Over their 100+ year history, they’ve amassed 12 national championships and have been to more bowls–and won more–than any other team. In the history of college football, only Notre Dame has been nearly as successful. In fact, it’s safe to say that Alabama and Notre Dame are programs 1A and 1B and everyone else is ranked behind them.

Here is a fact: Coming into this season, since 1908, Notre Dame had 1 more win than Alabama for most wins in the past 100 years of college football. We’ve all seen Notre Dame post their 6-6 record this season, and everyone is also well aware that Alabama is 12-0 and ranked #1 in the country. Did you also know that Alabama has now moved into first place in wins over the last 100 years? Does that make Alabama the program of the century? I think so, yes. Over the last 100 years, Alabama is #1, and all other football programs are #2 or lower, including Notre Dame.

Wins, from 1908 – 2008:

  1. Alabama: 754
  2. Notre Dame: 748
  3. Texas: 747
  4. Oklahoma: 743
  5. Tennessee: 731
  6. Southern Cal: 717
  7. Nebraska: 715
  8. Ohio State: 712
  9. Michigan: 710
  10. Penn State: 706
