On an even bet, which would you take to win more NCs in the next 10 years:
Alabama & Clemson
or
the field

I'd say field, but it's close.

You have OSU, LSU, UGA, UF, OU, and a few others who appear to be competitive.  Not many others yet.

Let's presume the NC winners include UGA, OSU, UF, OU, and LSU each winning once, that means it's half.

Bama and Clemson have won 7 of the past 10.

I don't know about Clemson but Nick Saban is 70 years old and it is unlikely he will coach for another ten years. He is the same age that Bryant was when he retired. It is unlikely that any successor will have the same immediate success.

Even if he doesn't retire the SEC landscape is replete with serious challengers. Georgia appears to be recruiting at a high level as are LSU and Texas A&M. Florida and Auburn seem to flit in and out of high level competition. It will be a major accomplishment to win the SEC five times in the next ten years much more the NC. I would say Bama wins three NCs in the next ten years.

Saban could win 2 or 3 more, retire, and the Tide grab Dabo and win 3 or 4 more.  I"d probably quit college football by then.

Alabama or a team that beats Alabama. That coming from an incredible Saban stat.

Alabama or a team that beat Alabama has won the NC every year since 2007 when Saban was hired except for 2013 when Auburn lost to FSU on the last play of the NCG.

Has Bama ever had a better run?

I know the Bear had them always in the chase.

UGA is having an historic run now as well, not at the level of Bama of course, but good for UGA, aside from 1980-1984.

Bama, nor anyone else, has ever had a better run. UCLA basketball under Wooden would be the only comparison in the major sports.

Oklahoma 47?

That wasn't as long of course.  The duration of consistency is impressive, over a decade.

I figure it gets boring.

One of the most overrated streaks in sports history. Only 18 of the 47 were against teams with a winning record and 3 of those were 5-4-1. Streak began after a loss to ND in '53  and ended with a loss to ND in '57. They did beat ND 40-0 in 1956 which had the Heisman winner Paul Hornung on a TWO and EIGHT ND team. :sign0065:

It was so bad OU didn't even win the NC until '55 during that time.

Still a streak.

Ohio State has a nice streak of not being awful for more than three years in a row, if that.

It is interesting, to me, how in recent history Nebraska and Miami and FSU seemed dominant, FSU had all those top 5 finishes, and then whoosh.  Tenn could be on the verge of permanent mediocrity, maybe.  Ole Miss once was really good.  So was minny and the Army.
