As the schedule page goes to August, the considerations of avid supporters the nation over go to College Football.
Also, what difference would it make. With the outrages shaking essentially every other game – College Football stands apart for its great, clean rivalry. It’s embodies what sports ought to be about.
Obviously, the different National Polls are coming out with their assessments of who is the Number 1 school football crew in the land. Also, that questionable issue will be bantered around large number of water coolers for the following five months at any rate.
Before we get into the free for all of the school football Miami Hurricanes season (I can hardly wait), this may be a fun opportunity to make a stride back and impartially investigate the subject of which was the best school football crew ever.
Positively, which was the best group at any point is a questionable issue. Be that as it may, as a SEC fan, I have a solid assessment. Also, I think the appropriate response is simple:
The 1961 Alabama Crimson Tide was the best school football crew of all time.
The group was driven by the unbelievable mentor Paul “Bear” Bryant. Obviously the “Bear” at last turned out to be, maybe, the best school football trainer of all time. Among numerous achievements, his groups won fifteen Southeastern Conference (SEC) titles and six National Championships.
Yet, his 1961 group was the first. Five additional National Championship groups would emulate its example. Be that as it may, the 1961 group pioneered the path for the rest.
The 1961 Alabama Crimson Tide went an undefeated (11-0) and was delegated the undisputed National Champion. With the various public surveys, at that point, it was extremely uncommon to complete the season as the “undisputed” National Champ. The ’61 Crimson Tide did it.
However, the truly astounding thing concerning that group was its guard. It outscored its rivals 297 – 25! Nobody scored in excess of 7 focuses against the ’61 Crimson Tide guard and, truth be told, six adversaries neglected to score by any means. They beat Tennessee 34-3 and finished the season by beating Arkansas 10-3 in the Sugar Bowl.
The group was driven by hostile lineman Billy Neighbors and linebacker Lee Roy Jordan (both in the College Football Hall of Fame); just as QB Pat Trammell (Heisman Trophy finalist).
Thinking about the legend of Bear Bryant; the undefeated record; the undisputed public title; the astounding protection; the reality they were “the first” in a long queue of Alabama champions – it’s not difficult to perceive any reason why the 1961 Alabama Crimson Tide was the best group in school football history.
