    tOSU would not have that many wins if they played in the SEC.

    Not bad considering most of the past decade was spent wandering in the wilderness

    That pisses me off that we let that decade plus part of ten years gets wasted because of one lazy incompetent man...

    By the way, thank for the awesome link, LLCoolj94.

    Pretty good considering this decade sucked for the most part.

    Seven of the top eight have won at least one national championship in that 30 year time frame. Who could that school with no rings be?
    Surprised not to see Southern Cal in this listing.

    All of the top 7 have 2 or more national championships except OU and UGA. As a UF and Texas grad, that makes me happy...

    “One lazy incompetent man?“ I’m pretty sure we had two terrible coaches over the past decade.

    Same for FSU, they racked up a lot of wins in the '90s when the ACC was the All Cup Cake League.

    Vacated/Forfeited Wins:
    Alabama - 29 (would have 293 wins, good for 2nd place)
    FSU - 12 (would have 290 wins, good for 3rd place)
    Ohio State - 12 (would have 310 wins, would still be in 1st place)​

    To be fair, I think we should only count the last 20 years of the last century and restart in 2018. This takes into account a lag of the Y2K syndrome.

    I was going to say that it's hard to believe Bama wasn't ahead of UF. They've had a lot of great years and even when they were down, they weren't that far down.

    And now the All Cup Cake conference looks back on those glory days and wishes it was as good as it was in the 90s (except Clemson).

    Clemson was the top ACC team for most of the 80s, but decade ended with looming NCAA sanctions and tension between Danny Ford and CU President Lennon. Ford was pushed out and by the time F$U arrived in 1992 (already an elite program) Clemson began a decline into a average at best ACC team. F$U won ten straight ACC Titles until Maryland won in 2001. F$U won again in 2002, 2003, and 2005 but cracks where appearing on the wall. Sinbo and F$U regained the conference 2012-14 but Clemson took it away in 2015 and it was F$U's turn to fall off the cliff. As both a UF and CU fan, I am fine with that.

    As obnoxious as Ohio State fans can be (you know, unlike us Gators ...) you do have to hand it to their program. They've never really been down.
    It seems like all the teams that were elite when I was a kid have had stretches where they disappeared from the rankings, sometimes for extended periods. But the Buckeyes seem to always be there.

    Edit - Checked the polls and Bama has had fewer unranked finishes than OSU ...

    The one that went a decade without real fundraising for the football program... hired four coaches and three of them were duds.
