    This has been updated after the final polls for the 2018 season.

    OK, here's how this was calculated. I took each team's ranking in every year-end poll since the AP started in 1936. Once 2 polls were involved (the Coaches Poll started in 1950), I always used the higher ranking. Sliding scale points were awarded for every year that a team ended up ranked, and 10 points were deducted for each losing season. The scale was determined before seeing where teams ended up.

    For each year since 1936, a team earns points based on these criteria:

    NC (#1) in either poll = 100 points
    02 -> 05 = 65, 55, 50, 45 points, respectively
    06 -> 10 = 40, 37, 34, 32, 30 points
    11 -> 20 = 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, 10 points
    21 -> 25 = 08, 06, 04, 03, 02 points
    non-ranked, but .500 or above = 0 points
    losing record for the year = minus 10 points

    Here are the all-time totals, updated after the 2018 final polls:

    01. 2797 - Alabama
    02. 2678 - Oklahoma
    03. 2646 - Ohio State
    04. 2411 - Notre Dame
    05. 2089 - USC (-10 for losing record in 2018)

    11. 1359 - Florida State (-10 for losing record in 2018)

    I can't see 'Bama re-passing us anytime in the near future. Instead, tOSU will probably widen the gap in (at least) the next year or two.
    We should also gain on Choklahoma / Notre Shame in that period. But again, I can't see us catching them for at least several years. Though our MNational Championship next year will significantly close the gap:)
    Glad to see we are ahead of the more, well, bragful, schools, f.e. Nebraska, the Florida schools...

    On a mixed feeling note:
    Our fellow B10 school in the top five will drop down behind USC in the next three or four years
