Phil Steele has his list of the teams in the last decade with the greatest yardage differential between them and their opponents. The idea being to figure out which teams was the ‘most dominant’.
Interestingly, only two of the top 22 teams on the list–2005 Texas (7th) and 2003 LSU (17th)–managed to win national titles. However, teams ranked between 23rd and 44th in yardage dominance won six titles.
I guess the key to winning titles it to dominate, yes…..but not too much.
