But you have to look at what they accomplished in their era. In the context of their time. That isn't "overthinking."
If the list is called "greatest college team according to college era" then I would agree with you.
However, I think this is "greatest college team for a sinlge season", therefore their list sucks.
Regardless of era I would put the '83 Houston team up against any team today and that was 25 years ago.
When you put 1954 Kentucky, you're overthinking it.
