The Gipper Posted October 25, 2010 Report Share Posted October 25, 2010 This year has been a good year for getting "Fresh Blood" into the title mix in the various sports leagues. So here are your questions along that line. Give your opinions: 1. The previously moribund New Orleans Saints (who after yesterday may be going back to being moribund) broke through and won a title for the first time since their inception in 1966. Now, this year, several teams who have either never won titles or for whom it has been over 40 years since their last title are leading their NFL divisions. Which of these division leaders would you like to see win the Super Bowl (Browns excluded because they are not on top of division): Atlanta Falcons, no title since inception in 1967 Seattle Seahawks, no title since inception in 1976 NY Jets, no title since SB III in 1968 Kansas City Chiefs, no title since SB IV in 1969 Tennessee Titans, no title since 1961 AFL title in 1961 2. The evil vampire bloodsucking Yankees have had a stake put through their heart and two "deserving franchises" who have gone a long time are vying for the World Series title. Who do you want to see win the World Series: The Texas Rangers who had never so much as won a postseason series since their inception as the Washingtion Senators in 1961, or The San Francisco Giants who have not won the World Series since playing in New York in 1954 when they defeated the Indians? 3. In the NHL this past summer the Chicago Blackhawks won the NHL title for the first time since 1961. They had gone longer than any other NHL team in awaiting a title. Though it is early, there are some division leaders who have gone a long time since winning or who have never won. Which of the following current NHL contenders would you like to see win the Stanley Cup: The Toronto Maple Leafs who have not won since their title in 1967 The Los Angeles Kings who have never won a title since their inception in 1967 The Nashville Predators who have never won a title since their inception since 1998 (they are currently leading their div.) 4. The NBA is the LEAST egalitarian league of all. In the past 30 years ONLY the following 8 teams have won NBA titles: Lakers, Celtics, Spurs, Heat, Pistons, Bulls, Rockets, 76ers. Choose ANY of the other 22 teams who have either never won a title or gone more than 30 years without one that you would like to see win the NBA title next year. 5. Almost all of the traditional powerhouses in college football have suffered setbacks. The best chances to see the BCS title game are in the hands of the following 7 undefeated teams, none of whom have sniffed a Championship in almost 50 years. Which one would you like to see win the National Championship: Michigan State, who last won a share of a title in 1966 Auburn, who last won a title in 1957 TCU, who last won a title in 1938 Oregon which has never won a title Boise St. which has never won a title Missouri which has never won a title Utah which has never won a title.
