Toledo’s Undefeated Seasons
With UCF claiming their Undefeated National Championship. I think UT needs to finally hang the banners in the Glass Bowl for 1969 - 1971 and claim our National Titles.

RE: Toledo’s Undefeated Seasons
UCF is the only unbeaten FBS team this season. Just curious: were any of the great unbeaten UT teams the only unbeaten teams those years? If so, then I love the idea (although it would lose quite a bit of it's thunder after copying it from UCF) of putting up some banners proclaiming UT as mythical national champs for one or more of those seasons...as the years go by, I find that fewer & fewer Toledoans even know about the 35-0 record.

True. However, we have more of a claim because we did it 3 years in a row.

Also, having them up will never allow us to forget our history. That is a huge achievement and should be addressed more. Whether that be having fun and claiming the National Championships w/ banners or just making it more prevalent in the stadium.

We beat who? Villinova? Great legacy but any SEROUS talk about this would lead more to "get real" response. UCF showed clearly they could play with any of the four play-off teams and could probably on a given day, beat any of the four play-off teams. Their snark is a lot more legit than would be any from us or even from recent WMU or NIU.

This is a sleeping dog best let to lie, concentrate on the HOF for Ealey. That's legit in this day and age and in hindsight.

A little late and, given our schedule- no Auburns for example, our claim is weak. The Carpenter-led Miami teams that followed us probably had more of a claim, knocking off some big names in the Tangerine Bowl.

This was ment to be all good and fun. SB Nation did mention UT in teams who should follow in UCF's footsteps.

RE: Toledo’s Undefeated Seasons
We should hang banners. Since the BCS, the NCAA does not even sanction or recognize the national champ for FBS. See the asterics and fine print. They recognize it is not a fair system. Maybe if all the G5 claimed these championships it might be a way to stir change. If everyone claims to be champs, maybe it dilutes the Pig 5 coference's cartel!!!

National Champs 1969, 1970 and 1971!!!
