Thanks for the welcome, ignore that Ravens dipshit.
Thanks for the welcome, and I'm not trying to start a pissing match or anything... But you can't really claim to have four football national championships.
It's hard to argue against 1921, since you did go undefeated and untied (among other teams) and there weren't major selectors back then.
I don't see a record of anyone claiming a national championship for Iowa in 1922.
1956 would be a pretty weak claim too, since the AP, FWAA, and UPI all picked Oklahoma.
1958's probably the best claim you have, since the FWAA picked you. The AP and UPI still picked LSU, though.
Iowa itself doesn't even appear to claim more than a single championship (1958). If I were an Iowa football fan, I'd like to think I'd only claim 1921 and 1958 (much like I don't walk around claiming a 1951 title for Maryland, only 1953).
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
If UMD had any chance they could claim a title, I would do it.
We were undefeated and untied in 1951 and voted 3rd by the AP, we then beat #1 Tennessee in the Sugar Bowl. Though basically the opposite happened in 1953(we were voted #1 before bowls then lost to Oklahoma in the Orange). So it evens out.
Oh lord.....He had a very very snide arrogance about him. Did you not pick up on that one? All I asked was how many titles in anything Iowa had? I know MD has over 40 in multiple sports. Iowa in the 20's with about 95% in wrestling. I was just trying to make a point. The fact that he wants to get us right away is an F YOU to all MD sports. As in they will take us really easy...in hind sight, they should worry about beating that BB powerhouse VT.
That's true and I agree that it makes sense to do it this way, but it is kind of funny that Michigan State claims the '51 championship and we don't when we were both undefeated but we actually beat the #1 team in the bowl game.
I've seen conflicting reports on whether or not we officially claim 1951 lately... I personally don't feel right claiming both.
1953 is the only title MD claims. Isn't the 1953 title listed at Byrd on the Team House?
He wasn't being arrogant or snide. You're just being an asshole.
Can we trade A2R to Iowa for a wrestling walk-on to be named later?
Don't be so sensitive. Play nice and it's easier to slip the shiv in when they're not looking.
This is a basic tenet of human relations.
Crop dusters stop flying?
You are just mad that the Ravens are in my screen name.
You are correct.
What is your team?
All these Big Ten fans are so nice. I'm all for being nice, but when it comes to sports you suck and we're gonna beat the hell out of you. I'm wondering how the Big Ten is going to take Maryland. I think it's going to be a great match.
Smiley IS a Ravens fan, dumbass. Jesus christ.
Some of us appreciate the welcome.
AP final ranking in 1953:Note presence of Duke and Rice. How times have changed. When I share this list, I often like to point out that my older brother attended UMd from 1952 to 1956. During that time, he says that he not only saw the national championship team, but never saw the Terps lose a homegame.

Do they serve grape Nehi at Kinnick Stadium?
Nebraska fans are shitheads and hicks??Lmao! Have you ever met any huskers fans? I take it you're not one of the "good" Iowa fans who "appreciate the same", that you was talking about.
Yeah....Des Moines media the day after the news was announced on whatever station was on TV said "Maryland, who hasn't really been relevant in anything in well over a decade will be joining the Big 10." I yelled fuck you very loudly.
You should have just turned it off and shot their Nielsen/Arbitron ratings to hell.
but how many in competitive cheer?
