    All time wins - Bama could move up a couple of spots this year

    https://www.ncaa.com/news/football/a...nningest-teams

    As of Sept. 8, 2019:

    1. Michigan - 955
    2. Ohio State - 913
    3. Texas - 909
    4T. Yale - 907
    4T. Alabama - 907

    Bama will pass Yale and could pass Texas this year.

    Note: Michigan has been playing football 13 years longer than Bama.

    Is this counting our "vacated" and forfeited" wins?

    Seeing as how the NCAA record book is filled with discrepancy, capricious and arbitrary rulings of forfeiture and vacancy, I prefer the record book of 'on the field' results which shows Bama with 936 wins. Our boys fought too hard for every one of those wins for me to allow the NCAA to declare them void.

    Wow! Ohio State in target :-) I like that :-)
    I know what it takes to win. If I can sell them on what it takes to win, then we are not going to lose too many football games. - Coach Paul Bryant and I can see Coach Nick Saban agreeing completely.

    That's the amazing thing. We've passed several teams since Coach Saban took over, despite the missing wins. The ones from the textbook ordeal are particularly egregious. Still, the #3 spot is in sight. I don't see Ohio State losing much ground from our vantage point today. I can remember a time when Notre Dame, Nebraska, Penn State, and Oklahoma were all in front of us as mediocrity took over from 1997 to 2006. Of course, I also remember a time, before the sanctions of 1993, when we were a solid #3 in wins and winning percentage behind only Michigan and Notre Dame.

    Well basically from 2010-now Texas is lost a lot of ground. Nebraska has really fallen far. OU has lost a few more games here and there and not played in as many due to lack of CCG. Actually since 2000, OU has only had just one 13-win season. Heck Notre Dame has lost a lot of games since 2000. Going into 2000, it was Michigan #1, Notre Dame #2, and Alabama and Texas ties for #3 in all time wins.

    On the field Bama has 936 wins. 2nd all-time. 21 wins vacated for that stupid textbook scandal. 8 wins and a tie forfieted because the athletic department mishandled that Antonio Langham delared for the draft , and supposedly signed with an agent (on a napkin)... then returned for another season.

    My pet pieve.... Bama should just reclaim the vacated wins. ( Nebraska did the same thing with textbooks with no wins vacated).

    Anyway....on the field....Bama in number 2 in wins and number 1 in winning percentage.

    Every once in a blue moon I like to post a link to my favorite site for comparing all-time wins and a few other things.

    For the site:

    http://football.stassen.com/

    To compare teams by wins, losses, win %, etc;... over any span of years:

    http://football.stassen.com/records/...e-request.html

    Does not include officially vacated wins or this season's games.

    That was a ridiculous penalty. How did selling textbooks give us a competive advantage...?

    It didn't, and it was available to all scholarship recipients, not just athletes.

    Simply another case of the National Communists Against Athletes being who they are.

    You know what? We need a thread keeping track of school records so we can keep up with it. Jeudy, Tua are set to break several records this fall.
    We are champions. We can prove it! *counting 15 championships*

    Just imagine how "dominant" we'd be on this list if we had roughly 130 more games (averaging just 10 games a year) on other teams???
