    ECDawg is right though. Georgia is not quite the most egregious example of underachievement in the college football world. Perhaps USC, Texas, Penn State and Ohio State are all worse. Ohio has more people than Georgia but Ohio State has no real in state competition at all. They should never be out of the top five.
    Texas is biggest example. They should have ten titles.

    Especially since Texasis the program in that state. Florida divides its talent too much but as a State has represented with titles.

    Nah, there are several viable programs in Texas. USC only has UCLA and Stanford to compete with.

    Texas HS football is a different animal. CA football is good,Texas is insane. Texas only has to contend with A&M in state realistically, no other program in Texas historically is relevant aside from maybe TCU or SMU for 15 years between Doak Walker then the Pony Express years.

    That is not true. Baylor has won recruiting battles with UT of late and I suspect TCU and Houston do with local kids on occasion too. Plus, Oklahoma heavily recruits Texas and has a lot of pull there. Ditto for LSU in East Texas.

    TAMU and TCU have finished in the top 5 in the last ten years and Baylor and Houston have finished in the top 10 during that time as well. Texas Tech has been a top 25ish program for much of that time under Mike Leach as well.

    The situation in Texas is simply more competitive than California for all those reasons and has always been. There is way more Power 5 schools with alumni and coaches all over the state to deal with for UT than for the three Power 5 schools in California.

    There is a fourth Power 5 school in the state of California: Cal (Berkeley). While they are traditionally the weakest team of the four, they do have some ability to draw recruits away from the others when those recruits are looking for a solid academic school - they cannot be beat by any Power 5 program in the nation in that respect.

    I would say that JSHD is just an idiotic troll. But that may get me infracted. So I will not say it in any meaningful context. JSHD is just asking a question about titles and not being a freaking troll. So I will answer his well thought out and meaningful comment.
    UGA does not claim titles back in the teens and twenties when they were awarded by multi polls of their time. Alabama claims any NC given out. And they can.
    Now there is a BCS which gives out a meaningful NC. Bama has won five with Nick Saban as coach. He is only the greatest coach in College football history. So in the modern era. Bama truly is the top that everyone wants to be. But it will not happen as long as Saban wants to coach.

    Huh? Between Bryant, Saban and Stallings Bama has 12 titles. It's not like the majority of Bama titles weren't won after 1960.

    Baylor isn't historically relevant and now won't be doing **** for a while. Sure other teams out of state recruit Texas, but they recruit CA as well. The PAC-12 schools and all big time schools cherry pick from CA as well as Texas. Texas has more resources and money than USC as well.
