All I know is that A&M had some great years under Slocum, but picking one is hard.  From 92-94, they had seasons of 11-1, 10-2, and 10-0-1.  They had very good RBs and very good 5'9" corners.  

The Aggies had very weak schedules those years, however.  I guess the SWC was in its doldrums - A&M didn't fare well vs. ranked opponents OOC.

In doing a little research, I see how programs tend to peak for at least 2 seasons.  At least when it comes to the national-championship-level programs, they tend to still "be there" the year after.  Here's what I mean:

We know Miami was the program of the 80s.  But in 85, OU beat PSU for the NC.  So we progress to 86 and who's there?  PSU again.  They beat Miami.  The next year - Miami again...over OU.  88 it's Miami still, losing out to ND.  The next year - Miami.  1990 is a sort of reset (CU & GT).  91 is back to Miami (and UW).  This isn't about Miami, the Canes just happen to never go away for that period of time.  92 Miami is back, but loses to Bama.  93 is a reset, with FSU over UNL.  But the new Miami is UNL, with the next to NCs (over Miami, then Florida).  Florida wins it the following year, then back to UNL in 97 (with Michigan).  98 is a reset with Tenn & FSU, then FSU again, and FSU a third time, losing out to OU in 2000.  2001 resets with UNL and Miami, then Miami again losing out to OSU.  Reset with OU and LSU the next year.  USC is sort of at the top 3 straight years, if not 2, vs Texas in 05.  06 is another reset with Florida and OSU, who makes it back a 2nd year in a row vs LSU.  Here we see OU is sort of the exception - in-and-out more than a 2-3 year peak.  
Anyway, just something we all already kind of knew, but maybe more so than I'd realized.

Starting in 85:
OU-PSU
PSU-MIA
MIA-OU
MIA-ND
ND-MIA
-------
CU-GT
-------
MIA-UW
BAMA-MIA
---------
FSU-UNL
UNL-MIA
UNL-FLA
FLA-FSU
--------
UM-UNL
-------
TENN-FSU
FSU-VT
OU-FSU
--------
MIA-UNL
OSU-MIA
--------
LSU-OU / USC?
USC-OU
TEX-USC
----------
FLA-OSU
LSU-OSU

It sort of ends there, with a lot of Bama and Auburn intermittently next, with some Bama-Clemson lately.

I wonder if that "cutting edge software" can get bowl stats from every season included, instead of having a random-ass gap within the past 20 years.  

Where do I send my resume to be part of this? lol

I'm having trouble finding 1971 OU's specialists - K, P, KR, PR - and their stats.

I'm listening to the Dodgers getting tea-bagged by the worst team in baseball.  Ugh.

Researching for teams for my game - A&M and Colorado have great sites, with PDFs for each year, including tackles/sacks.  
Duke's isn't too shabby.

'89 was his last year at Duke, shared ACC title.  Then "mama called".

Any site with defensive statistics is great.  I have to say, Duke's is good and in looking up '89, something odd;  full defensive stats, but not even a numerical roster.  Easily found elsewhere - it's like zoo having a unicorn but not a giraffe.

Good news, a guy from Soonersports actually replied back with all the stats I needed.  Very cool.  Even helped with 74 and 75 OU.  
Now my problem is defensive data (INTs, Sacks/TFL) for '72 USC.  Aaarrrgghhh!
