« on: November 29, 2018, 06:35:20 PM »
this week they are at 900 ap poll appearances, the only team to do so.

they also crossed the 900 mark in total wins this season. texas and alabama also crossed that mark this season.

alabama took over #1 in most ap poll #1 appearances from osu this season.

We have discussed this on here before but it is interesting to me how consistent Ohio State has been over the 80+ years of AP polls.

Ohio State is no longer first in appearances at #1 (second behind Bama).

Ohio State is third in top-5 appearances behind #1 Oklahoma and #2 Bama.

Ohio State is first in top-10 appearances and overall poll appearances.

Alabama passed Ohio State for #1 in appearances at #1 earlier this season.  Alabama has now been #1 in 117 out of 1,149 AP Polls ever released.  That is a little over 10%.  Think about that.  If you picked up a random AP Poll there is a better than one-in-ten chance that Alabama is #1.  

Since Nick Saban took over at Alabama here are the appearances at #1(Apperances, Team, % of polls out of 193 from 2007-2018):
  • 86, Bama, 44.6%
  • 17, tOSU, 8.8%
  • 16, LSU, 8.3%
  • 15, Florida, 7.8%
  • 12, FSU, 6.2%
  • 10, USC, 5.2%
  • 8, Clemson, 4.1%
  • (tie) 8, Oregon, 4.1%
  • 6, Oklahoma, 3.1%
  • 5, Mississippi State, 2.6%
  • 3, Notre Dame, 1.6%
  • (tie) 3, Texas, 1.6%
  • 2, Auburn, 1%
  • 1, Georgia, 0.5%
  • (tie) 1, Mizzou, 0.5%

Since Saban has been at Bama the Tide have been #1 in nearly half of the polls released.  Saban's 86 appearances at #1 would be #6 on the all-time list for schools since 1936 behind only Bama, tOSU, OU, ND, and USC.

Just looking at the top school in each category, if you picked up a random AP Poll there is:
  • A better than one-in-ten chance that Bama is #1
  • A better than one-in-three chance that Oklahoma is in the top-5
  • A better than 50/50 chance that Ohio State is in the top-10
  • A nearly four-in-five chance that Ohio State is ranked

Wow.  Bama 44.6% of the time at #1 since Saban took over.

Has any coach ever approached that figure?

FSU under Bowden had an amazing run of top 5 finishes, but not at #1.  It's obviously far easier to finish top 5 than at the very top.

Georgia had a fair number of top 5 finishes under Richt, but zero #1s obviously, and CMR was fired.

bama is tops in both #1 and #2 rankings, with about a 10% chance in each. so there's a 1/5 chance bama is in the bcs title game 20% of the time.
what's funny is i used to boast about not being overrated cause we weren't high on the #1 list, but we were when it counted, with the most #1 finishes all time. 
saban makes up just under 75% of bama's #1 rankings.
