- 14 Straight Seasons ranked in the top 5 of the final AP poll (with 11 bowl wins in those 14 years. The three bowl losses were in National Championship games).
- First team to ever go wire to wire number 1
- 34 Consensus All-Americans
- 15 Conference Titles
- 25th in all time wins, despite starting in 1947
- 3rd most successful team in the last 25 years (77% win percentage) and 12th in the last 50 years (67% win percentage).
- Since the Coaches Poll was first released in 1950, FSU has been featured in the final Top 25 32 years.
- 30 consecutive years going to a bowl game (still active and 9 ahead of 2nd place).
- 35 consecutive years without a losing season.
- Current longest bowl win streak at 4 and longest of all time at 11 (1985-1995).
- 35 First Round NFL Draft Picks
- 241 ALL TIME NFL Draft Picks
- 2 NFL Hall of Famers (Fred Biletnikoff , Deion Sanders)
- Winningest Coach in Major College Football History, Bobby Bowden*

*Counting JoPa's vacated wins. Without that, still the 2nd winningest coach ever.
FSU doesn't deserve to be on ANY list. contest that.

As much as I loved watching FL teams play growing up (Florida, FSU, Miami) -- and this coming from a West Coast fan -- their overall success, I believe, have been more recent (when compared to the annals of CFB).

Of course, if we're REALLY talking national championships, Princeton and Yale would lead the way ... (tongue in cheek)

Yes, Princeton rules! Lol. Something like 26 National Championships (with season records of 2-0, 4-0, and 5-1).

Are we talking about a single season program or from founding to now program?


I guess I should be faithful to my alma mater. Go Orange. But god have we sucked our way through this century.
