To stimulate conversation, re: college football.
That list is completely stupid.
1991 Washington was absolutely better then 1991 Miami Fla and anyone
different is retarded.
this is repeated a lot, but looking at the results nothing really
That is because you are an idiot.
IMO I give a slight edge to Miami(of course Im biased).
Clearly you are biased. So am I. Objective facts though remain...two
common opponents...Washington clearly had the edge.
you're getting the "objective facts" confused yet again.....Miami beat
Nebraska by 22. Washington did so by 15. I'm not going to claim one
team's victory was "more impressive" than the other though..
because you are ignornant. Washington beat Nebraska at Lincoln (put up 600
yards of offense on them in fact). The Canes beat Nebraska in the Orange
Bowl..which incidentally was played on Miami's home field AFTER Washington
had crushed Michigan in the Rose Bowl earlier. There isn't a person on the
planet that would hold those two games side by side and conclude anything
but that Washington's win was far more impressive which essentially was the
debate of the time.
teams dominated nebraska pretty equally. It was clear who was going
to win both games. Both teams had some a few games against quality
competition where they looked incredible, and both teams had a few
games where they didn't look overpowering. For washington those games
were cal and USC. For Miami the FSU game and the SDSU game.
Again you are silly. That Cal team....went 10-2. It was the single game
that season in which Washington wasn't dominant with the result decisive as
Cal was actaully taking shots to win it right at the end trying to tie it
up. The USC win was a demonstration of total defensive domination by
Washington. That USC team was inferior of course. There wasn't anything
questionable about the win. You didn't see any of these games though so I'm
not sure what you would base "look overpowering" on. When Miami played
FSU...the Noles were ranked #1. It would help if you had some basic
information other then a google look for final scores. Your comments
wouldn't look so silly then.
One point in miami's favor is that the best "win"(before considering
margin) for either team was a road win at FSU, a very good team in
1991. One point in Washington's favor is Miami looking sluggish
against a non-major team in SDSU. It's damn close....I give the
slight edge to Miami because of the win in tallahassee and the
stronger defense, but Im not going to cry outrage if someone favors
Washington(as the coaches did). But anyone who says "it's not close"
just isn't being realistic based on the results.
It isn't close. Washington beat Arizona by over 50 while the Canes beat
them by about half as much. The Canes didn't struggle with San Diego State.
They struggled (damned near lost) to Boston College right after the FSU
If ever there was a case against pre-season polling it was the 1991 season.
Washington should have gone in the consensus #1 but wasn't after the
starting QB and Rose Bowl MVP from the previous season went down with
injury. Thusly in the media poll UW was initially behind Miami and never
was able to pass them. Had there been no pre-season polls...UW no doubt
would have been ranked #1 in both polls. There isn't a sensible person in
the world who saw both of those teams and would have rationally concluded
that Miami was #1. Hell if they had played Washington would have burried
that Miami team.
God Bless Hokienation!!!
