Amen, man. I completely agree with you. People are nonsensical.

Good question. Could the MLB World Series team beat the best Negro league team from those years.

Could Texas' great segregated teams in the 1960s beat Florida A&M or Grambling from that era.

Every championship is legitimate. Yale was a powerhouse in the early days of college football. So was Harvard. The Yale Bowl is one of the iconic stadiums in college football across the country.

Matters? its hard to say. As far as has an affect on today's college football, I would say titles back to the 1940's still matter a bit, otherwise why is Notre Dame so revered?

As far as being relevant to where recruits want to go, I would say go back 20 years for recent tradition.

As far as when you should stop wearing your team's National Championship memorabilia, I would say you get a pass for two seasons, you are treading on thin ice wearing it three seasons after, and more than five, you are pathetic and re living past glories due to your team not having anything recent to celebrate.

Same with Army. They haven't been a national power since the 1950s...

My view on championship merchandise, it's fine to wear as long as here players who contributed on the field to that championship run. Once the last of those players are gone then it's time to put them away. Or just wear around the house when doing yard work or something.

Anything before August 1, 1981, doesn't count.
