On Thursday morning, ESPN published a piece running through every college football title winner in the past 20 years. In total, the Worldwide Leader ranked 21 teams from the best to worst.

Sitting at No. 1 were the Texas Longhorns for their 2005 championship over USC. In last place?

Well, there's some controversy about that. Ohio State fans aren't happy about the fact that their 2002 championship team is taking up the year.

Eleven Warriors, a sit dedicated to all things Ohio State football, took exception to the news.

The site showed off the accomplishments from that team's season.

"Coming in dead last on the list an No. 21 was Ohio State’s 2002 National Championship squad, which was the first team ever to go 14-0, beat five ranked teams, snapped a team’s 31-game winning streak in the title game, and saw 19 players drafted in either the 2003 or 2004 NFL Drafts."

Ohio State made the title game and took down the defending champion Miami Hurricanes, who entered the contest as the No. 1 team in the country.
