    Maybe ISUr ‘14? If not for a future NFL 2nd pick and MVP candidate, I doubt NDSU wins its 4th Natty.

    Montana won it in 1995, lost it after 15-0 start in 1996.

    yup.

    UNI 07 and 08 are the epitome of UNI football failures. Holy **** were those teams good.

    Griz 1996 (I explained this in the other thread)
    Georgia Southern 1998 (our linebacker unit was destroyed by injuries for that game, and 7 largely unforced turnovers doomed us, or else that team is 15-0)
    Six National Championships. All won via a playoff in the second highest level of football.

    Furman 2005.

    34.9 ppg
    246.9 rushing ypg
    223.1 passing ypg
    470 ypg

    Ingle Martin had 3,193 yards of total offense that season. Jerome Felton had 20 total TDs, averaged 5.2 ypc, for 951 yards. Felton had 11 negative yards total on 182 carries.

    Furman was ousted in the semifinals by #2 App State in Boone (arguably the toughest venue in the country) - a team they had already beaten that year. That App team went on to win the national title a week later against UNI. Furman lost that game after Ingle Martin famously slipped on a ice patch right outside the endzone as he was walking in to put Furman up two scores late. A touchdown there probably would have sealed it. Instead, App took the momentum and won the game.

    If you didn't ever watch Jerome Felton play football, this is a taste. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zqi9JKzKWzs

    The safety Felton just runs over at the end of that play is Corey Lynch, an all american who played in the NFL. There have been good running backs in the FCS since Felton, but I'm not sure I've seen anyone who ran the ball like he did. The guy was a horse.
    FU all the time.
