Championips are at least in part a function of luck and random events. It is rare that a team in any sport is so good that it will win under any circumstances. This is particularly true in college football Chad Greenway Jersey , where one loss at any point in the regular season can derail a team’s title hopes, and until the BCS ca along the champion was at tis left entirely to the whim of poll voters. In that spirit, Regal Magazine has piled its list of three of the best college football teams never to win a national title. 1951 USF Dons: Perhaps long forgotten, this team was not only undefeated and untied, it was uninvited to a bowl ga. The reason will resonate with the Regal munity. Two of USF’s biggest stars were African Aricans Ollie Matson and Burl Toler, and the Cotton Bowl based in Dallas, the Sugar Bowl based in New Orleans and the Orange and Gator Bowls based in Florida were not interested in a ga that featured Blk stars. The Rose Bowl in Pasadena had agreents in ple with the Big 10 and Pific Coast Conference to take their champions, leaving the Dons with nowhere to play unless they chose to leave Matson and Toler at ho. The school refused to play without its stars, and so its 9-0 record went untested in the bowl season. Matson told The New York Tis in 2001 that when Joe Kuharich Jerick McKinnon Platinum Jersey , the San Francisco coh, told the players that they might be invited to the Orange Bowl if Matson and Toler did not play, the team’s defensive star Gino Marchetti said, “No, we ain’t going to go without Burl and Ollie.” Marchetti confird the story, but added that he was not the only player to take that stand. “We answered, ‘No, we’d never do that,’ ” he told The Tis in 2009. “And after we said no and removed ourselves from consideration Harrison Smith Platinum Jersey , nobody ever had a second thought about it.” The team lost $70,000 over that season. With no bowl money to offset the deficit, the university discontinued its football program. Tennessee, with a 9-1 record, was voted national champion by UPI and AP. 1982 SMU Mustangs: Known as the Pony Express, the SMU Mustangs of the mid 1980s were so of the most exciting football squads every produced by the old Southwest Conference. During that ti SMU enjoyed its most suessful era since the late 1940s and early 1950s. They posted a record of 55-14-1 and won three SWC titles while regularly selling out Texas Stadium. They nearly won the national title in 1982 with a team that featured running bks Eric Dickerson and Craig Jas. However, the team lost its ot at a title when it settled for a tie against Arkansas in the last ga of the season, to guarantee a spot in the Cotton Bowl, rather than risk a o-point conversion that could have won the ga and crowned the Mustangs as one of the best college football teams of all ti. Because SMU was the second smallest school in the SWC (only Rice is smaller) Anthony Barr Platinum Jersey , so slled a rat. Also, the Mustangs had posted just nine winning seasons beeen 1949 and 1980, before suddenly being world beaters. Investigations followed, it was discovered that paynts had been made to key players, and the program was ut down for 1987 and1988 as part of the NCAA “death penalty.” It was a great team, but as Tod Robertson said in the Dallas Morning News, the Pony Express story is the saga of how, “boosters, cohes and senior administrators colluded to bribe top high school players into signing with SMU.” 1967 UCLA Bruins: UCLA had everything going for it in its quest to bee the school’s first national champion since coh Red Sanders’s squad took ho the title in 1954. The 1967 Bruins had Heisman Trophy winner Gary Beban behind center and future NFL star Mel Farr as the featured running bk. The number-one ranked UCLA team swept through its non-conference and AAWU schedule before taking on also-undefeated and fourth-ranked USC in the traditional rivalry ga at the Los Angeles Coliseum on Nov. 18 Cris Carter Platinum Jersey , 1967. In those days both the Trojans and Bruins called the Coliseum ho. The ga captivated the city and much of the country. More than 93,000 people filled the Coliseum for a ga mostly controlled by UCLA. However, Bruins kicker Zenon Andrusyyn missed a close field goal and had a PAT blocked, and the Trojans had scored on an interception and a trick play, so the ga was still in reh 20-14, in the fourth quarter. Given life, USC took advantage with a 64 yard broken field run by future Hall of Far O.J. Simpson and made the PAT to provide the 21-20 final. Beban was playing with frtured ribs and could not mount a ebk. This ga is considered by many to be the signature ga of the Trojan-Bruin football rivalry and one of the greatest gas in college football history. USC beat Indiana in the Rose Bowl on New Years Day in 1968 to clinch the 1967 National Championip. UCLA did not go to a bowl ga as the Rose Bowl agreent of the day allowed only the AAWU conference champion to play in a bowl ga. That rule changed in 1975. USC coh John McKay called Simpson’s run the “most exciting college run I’ve ever seen,” and broadcaster Keith Jkson called the 1967 Bruin-Trojan owdown, “the greatest ga I have ever seen.” As for the Bruins Stefon Diggs Platinum Jersey , they are still waiting for a football championip to go with the 1954 title.
