We're No. 1

January 04, 1991

The AP says Colorado is the No. 1 college football team. UPI says Georgia Tech is. Some fans say this proves the need for a last-man-standing playoff system like the NCAA basketball tournament. We say the last thing college football needs is a longer season. Besides, it's fun to have these arguments. (We could say Maryland is No. 1. The Terps beat N.C. State, which beat North Carolina, which tied Tech. UM beat Virginia, which beat Clemson, which beat Illinois, which beat Colorado.) But seriously, our editorial board is as divided as the wire services. The Colorado faction argued that their team's schedule included seven of the top 25 teams. The Tech faction argued that their players' schedule includes 15 hours of calculus.
