I've already clarified in other threads that I suck at Googling, so I'll skip that whole part.

I'm looking for a website that lists up-to-date stats for college football. Things like conference bowl records, non-conference records, stuff like that. ESPN.com is surprisingly lacking (unless I'm not looking in the right spots), and the best I could find with my Amazing Google Skills was a two year old Angelfire page.

Zeruel, JJD-ANYBODY-got something I can use? I'm trying to win an argument, and I need some backup.

Thanks...

If it's regarding a specific university or occurrence, you can likely find the college's media guide in PDF format on the school's website. They usually have LOTS of stats and all of the historical records such as past season's results.

(Of course, you could just ASK US the question regarding the bet...one of us would likely know the answer.)

I use http://homepages.cae.wisc.edu/~dwilson/rsfc/history/ It has a ton of links for all kind of information. Out of curiousity, what is the argument between you and your friend?

Thanks for the links. Basically, my friend, who's an Oregon alum and huge Pac-10 fan, says that since USC won the national title, that makes the Pac-10 the best conference in the country.

I maintain that while USC was, by far, the best team in the country this year, that doesn't mean that it was the best conference this year. While I was doing some research to back this up, I came across this Angelfire (angelfire.com) site that had conference ratings up until 2002. I was trying to compare the 2002 Ohio State season to the 2004 USC season.

The year Ohio State won the national title, the Big-10 ranked first in non-conference record, most teams ranked in both the Top 25 and Top Ten, as well as bowl record. Given all of that, wouldn't that suggest that the Big-10 was the best conference in the country that year?

The Pac-10 sent five teams to bowls this year, and went 3-2. I can't find any information on those sites that give me that similar breakdown of stats, but I did find this, which will tick him off, but it proves my point:

    Thumbs down for the USC Trojans and the non-championship game Pac Ten conference. [...]Yes, the Trojans face ONE Top 25 opponent in 2004, that being 20th ranked Cal. This can be reflected in their paltry 64th schedule ranking. In defense of USC, the Pac Ten is down in terms of Top 25 competition and the non-conference slate of Virginia Tech, Colorado State, BYU and Notre Dame is nothing to scoff at during most seasons. But, it just so happens that these teams are all on the current preseason downswing.

They shouldn't have dropped out of their game against Fresno State. FSU was like 18th or better at the time they were supposed to play them.
