How Long Has It Been Since Your School’s Football Team Was Ranked #1 In The Country?

For most of us, we can’t remember the last time our college football team was #1 at anything, other than ESPN’s “Not Top Plays” on any given night. My beloved Syracuse Orange football team couldn’t play their way out of a wet paper bag. Actually, a wet paper bag has a better chance of getting an interception than anyone in our secondary. Once upon a time, they used to be good. Great, even, when legends like Floyd Little, Ernie Davis and Jim Brown called Syracuse home, three of the greatest football players of all time.

Powerhouse programs rise and fall. Ours fell and can’t get up like an octogenarian lady in a “Life Alert” commercial. By the looks of this chart, the Orange aren’t the only ones who have experienced the ebbs and flows of the cruel waters that is the AP College Football poll:

1960? Shit, my parents wouldn’t even remember Syracuse being #1.

They also took a look at the first time each team reached #1.


The account also features some pretty fantastic trash talking from Reddit, including this timely and slightly upsetting gem.
