Monday, Sports Illustrated released a list of what it considers to be the top 10 college football programs of all-time. While nobody seemed to disagree with the No. 1 overall program on the list (Alabama), there was plenty of debate regarding some others listed.
The biggest issues with the list seem to be Tennessee’s inclusion at No. 9, Penn State’s inclusion at No. 8 and the fact that Oklahoma is ranked No. 10. Many believe the Sooners should be in the top five.
Danny Kanell, who played at Florida State and loves to troll the SEC, got a hold of the list. He took to Twitter to express his displeasure that his Seminoles didn’t make the cut.
He essentially called it “dumb” and “inaccurate” – asking #FSUTwitter what it thinks about the list.
Tennessee and Penn State are in Top 10. Florida Stare is not.
All of which makes this list really:
C. All of the above.
So which is it #FSUtwitter

Florida State has been a dominant program in college football for some time now, but the reality is that the program didn’t really exist until 1947. It’s unclear whether SI factored statistics like winning percentage into its decision.
Florida State claims three national titles – 1993, 1999 and 2013. The Seminoles were arguably the most dominant program in college football in the 1990s.
College football fans – should Florida State have been on the list?
