ncaa does not recognize an official champions for Div A (FBS) football...sadly. when's that playoff coming?
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 04:34 GMT
even so, you should probably go with the standard I-A national championship tallies. no one cares about the I-AA winners, regardless of the NCAA's official position.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 04:49 GMT
Why not include both?
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 05:20 GMT
Saint Louis should count for St Louis. Otherwise, great quiz.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 05:24 GMT
I care about the FCS winners.. GO EAGLES!!
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 05:40 GMT
should except Cal for California

Football is a tough one. If you go by the recognized champion, you see Ivy Leagues are actually at the top, despite not currently being in FBS/D1A. But I'll update this to accept the all-time recognized as well as the most among current FBS teams as alternate answers. Also will accept the leader in Division 1 for Women's Ice Hockey too.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 13:35 GMT
I vote Notre Dame as a bonus, as it has the most AP championships, that being the most common barometer of football greatness. I would say it can't be official since Alabama could lay claim for having a slew of pre-1936 championships as well.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 13:45 GMT
@JohnJF, already made the change...the answer now accepts and lists Georgia Southern for FCS and Notre Dame for FBS...Yale is also an alternate.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 14:18 GMT
Right, if you go with claimed championships for football, including pre-AP, Michigan is tied with ND at 11, though it looks like Bama claims 12. Not sure if anyone claims more, but I don't think so. I know it gets dicey figuring out what counts and what doesn't when nothing's official and there have always been a ton of other polls before and after the AP, but I always hate when the inception of the AP is used as a cutoff for this debate. All sports have evolved over time, but you never see any other sport completely discarding the first 50+ years of the sport's existence when calculating *all-time* success metrics. I'm not pinning this on you, mathias1979, by the way. This is a trend and standard long established. Great quiz overall. It's just the ol' college ball that is geared toward stirring debate.

Division I-A football is a tricky one. You feel like you have to include it since it is the most popular college sport, but there are no offical NCAA titles awarded. Alabama does claim 12, but some of those are pre-AP and I don't knopw how legit the source was in that day. also, even in modern times, there were split titles, even in the BCS era.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 14:34 GMT
Yeah, I got Notre Dame from the College Football Data Warehouse (http://www.cfbdatawarehouse.com/data/national_championships/nchamps_team.php), but I see they devised their own metric to determine the champion. According to Wiki, Michigan is atop the list (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NCAA_Division_I_FBS_National_Football_Championship). This is why I originally listed only FCS...I think the best I can do that is leave Georgia Southern as the official answer but allow several alternates, unless someone can find a better source.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 16:55 GMT
I'd also allow "Berkeley" or "UC Berkeley" for California
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 18:44 GMT
Now when I type in Yale, Georgia southern pops up for football.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 19:22 GMT
@cocky...that's intentional. Yale can claim many of the early titles of football, going back to the late 1800s. The cfbdatawarehouse link I posted actually credits them with 24 championships...another site credits them with something like 17. If I accept Notre Dame and Michigan for alternates, there's really no reason not to accept Yale since they are still part of D1 football. Like you say, its tricky, which is why I originally opted to just stick with what's listed in the NCAA record books, which mean only FCS teams which have won a championship in the playoff era. In other news, I've changed it to accept Berkeley and UC Berkeley for Cal

I don't know why Minnesota-Duluth is listed as DII for Women's Ice Hockey. They're DI. They play in the same league as Wisconsin and Minnesota (WCHA).
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 22:19 GMT
it isn't accepting arizona state for me.
Oct 23rd, 2009 at 23:08 GMT
@vince, I had it set to just accept Arizona St, you probably typed State too quickly. In any case, I fixed that. @stevo933, the source denotes Minnesota-Duluth as DII, and I just confirmed that elsewhere. I believe Women's Ice Hockey combines DI & DII, hence why they are playing against other DI teams.
Oct 26th, 2009 at 21:33 GMT
you should accept Nova for villanova
Oct 27th, 2009 at 14:29 GMT
nova now acceptable
Jul 5th, 2010 at 18:37 GMT
ODU should be acceptable for Old Dominion.
Feb 6th, 2011 at 20:48 GMT
In Hockey there is no such thing as D-II, so teams play either in I or III depending on whether or not they'll pay their players.
