Yale currently leads the NCAA in the number of claimed national football championships. They won in 1874, 1876, 1877, 1880, 1881, 1882, 1883, 1884, 1886, 1887, 1888, 1891, 1892, 1894, 1900, 1907, 1909 and 1927.

Obviously, they haven't won in nearly a century, and most Yalies and college football fans could hardly care about championships that were won before the mass production of automobiles and trans-Atlantic aviation. But where exactly is the cut off point for relevance? Is a championship title from 1975 something to boast about or is that too long ago?

I have to tell you, I literally laughed out loud when I read your post. That was a good one and way to stir the pot some more.

That guy was saying Clemson had no shot to beat Alabama after the Clemson-SC game. He is a salty person about Clemson.

Lying is not a good trait. Here's the thread. Please point out where I said Clemson had no shot????

I specifically said Clemson better fix their defense after giving up 600 yards to a bad SC team. It appears they did.

Anyone think USC has a chance of beating Clemson tonight?

Otherwise, apologize.

You said Clemson fans were drinking Koolaid. What does that mean. You were saying that Clemson was overrated.

it kind of goes without saying that a team needs to play good defense to beat Alabama or other good teams in the playoffs. So why did you make the comment....

Really? You know what I meant. Better than me. The Kool-Aid comment was specifically directed at you who was claiming that SC got a lot of bad calls in their favor.

I'm done now. I'm putting you back on ignore. Have a nice life.
