The only thing I am suprised about is how the heck is florida ahead of us? I thought they have only been good since spurrier and are new money in the college football world.

And we've played 9 more seasons than they have.  Since the '79  season they've won 250 games.

Yep. Watch Clemson overtake Auburn really soon. They will still be little brother with the cracked out mascot to me, though.

I thought the OP was for the last 100 seasons....which would go back to 1917 and everyone should have a similar number of games over that time. 

Interesting list but consider that for the better part of 20 years ....mid 1930s until Shug was hired, AU's best seasons were a few 6 win seasons.....and mostly some really bad years with anywhere from 0 to 4 wins.    The famous Earl Brown had a total of 3 wins over 3 full seasons.....which brought about the hiring of Shug..

Yep...they have bounced all over the place .....were independent for 25 years, Southern Conference and Big East even...not part of the ACC for very long and have a very mixed history of who they have played.   Of all the teams on the list they probably have the least stellar history .....only what you might call a Power 5 school for a couple dozen years.....but made their mark once they got serious about it. .

And my boy fuente looks to be continuing that trend of winning a lot of games that the beamer started!!!

What is really impressive to me is the amount of times AU has played teams on this list, especially compared to others on here.

We'd have a good 60-70 more wins if we swapped shedules with Tennessee the last 100 years...

Imagine instead of playing UT, Ga Tech, UF, Uga, bama mixed in with Clemson, FSU, LSU etc every year, and playing Minnesota, Northwestern, Illinois, Purdue, Wisconsin (who had a miserable program until 25 years ago), Indiana etc instead?  Almost a shame that Michigan has only won two titles in the last 70 or so years and that OSU doesn't have more either...

frickin ga tech *&^^%%$

As long as Paul Johnson is their head coach, expect GA Tech to keep falling down that list.  I desperately want them to fire that guy.  They have such great opportunity to be a good football program with the talent surrounding them and a great academic school.

End of WWII would be a better gauge.  Maybe then, or 1950, 1980, and more recently from 2000-present.  I seriously doubt anyone cares who won what in 1923 or 1937...  

Unless you can retroactively count a "national championship' from those years...I wonder which team that would be...hmmm...

Gee, I wonder why someone picked only back to 1917 and not the entire history of college football....:-\

Because it was stated as "The Last 100 years".

Listening to the Sportscall radio show a few years ago and they had numbers on this. UGA and AU were numbers 1 & 2 nationally on strength of schedule going back a long time. I don't remember the exact the time frame, but it was through way back when.

This. Auburn's historical success despite multiple built-in disadvantages is under appreciated.

Auburn made a big transition as a college (or institute as it was known) back in the 50s ...when the vets came back from WWII and were on the GI Bill....API was not the school that AU is now....primarily an engineering and ag school and the middle to late 1950s when the "university" concept was developed.    Like it or not, Auburn has always been the second school in the state and has been underfunded for about as long as I can remember.

JMO but Auburn people have a lot to be proud of and those of my generation who took classes in "Temporary Buildings" and lived in dank dorms like Mag Hall where a couple popcorn poppers being used at the same time would blow a fuse should truly appreciate how far it's come. Accomplishments on the football field are something to be proud of but hoping you see the bigger picture ..the Auburn of astronauts and corporate leaders.

True dat. All this is part of the "Auburn Spirit", that sounds hokey but is real and what I love most about AU.

TY, Captain Obvious. My point was anyone can 'pick an era' for their own benefit.

 

Example: Teams that have defeated the most #1 ranked opponents in 2017:

1. Auburn

 

You're welcome.

That's a stunning post and belittles all the athletes that went before, "Corch". For a guy always running his mouth about being "old school" you'd probably be in a fetal position watching anything before Teddy Roosevelts ultimatum rules.
