(Updated - thanks) FBS teams vs. High school stats

Submitted by I Wrote a 4 Wo… on February 13th, 2013 at 11:57 AM

I remember during the football season someone posted the stats on how many high school teams were played by each FBS team that did so, and was just wondering if anyone still had that link. I've Google'd it and searched on MGoBlog but haven't found it.




EDIT/UPDATE: Thanks. The conversation started with an MSU fan who brought in an OSU fan for some reason, who both kept saying Michigan has sucked at everything since 1930, so records only after 1930 should be shown since that's when these "gimme" games ended. Showing statistics & facts for all 3 schools (and the other actual top programs) has helped shut them up.

Other than a run-on opening sentence, I don't understand what's so hard to understand about my original post.

1) There was a post during football season.
2) The post showed how many high school football teams were played by FBS teams.
3) The post also showed how many high school teams those FBS teams played.
4) Does anyone have the link to that post?
5) I've looked for the post but have been unsuccesful.

Like, Yost days or before. I can't remember enough of the article to find a definite link, but I want to say it was a major (non-ESPN) outlet that set out to find the "worst" all-time record for a major program. The thread also included someone pointing out how many wins Sparty has against high school competition, and I want to say that Alabama and USC were near the top of the list.

To the OP - here is what you were talking about I believe - it was mentioned in this post from Brian back in October.


and he was linking to this article on college programs with junk wins (you have to scroll down to the section titled "junk wins"
