National Titles and Polls

When attempting to look up national title winners, the biggest problem faced is determining just who won national titles in which years. Because the history of college football is filled with a great lot of people giving out national titles -- sometimes retroactively -- there is a great deal of debate as to who actually won the national title in any given year.
