Let's rewind to about 10-20 years ago—back when football had a swagger about it.

There were teams that were extremely talented and incredibly entertaining. From the bad boy Miami Hurricanes to the golden era of Notre Dame football, college football was a spectacle during this era.

WVU is among the most successful programs in NCAA history with over 700 wins.
