It depends on how we are defining blue bloods. What defines a blue blood? Is it titles? Total wins? Combination?
Titles Minnesota has 4 titles. Nebraska and Miami have 5.
My opinion is the blue bloods are Bama, OU, ND, Ohio st and USC. Those 5 schools have at least 7 titles and make up 5 of the top 6 in total wins.
Texas is right on the fence. 5th in win totals but has half the titles of the 5 I mentioned. I lean towards including them in the blue blood discussion but I do think if they are in, Miami and Nebraska should be as well.
I also think blue blood is a term for older more historical programs. LSU has the same number of titles as Texas but 3 out 4 came in the last 20 years and I would consider LSU and Clemson to be “new money” rather than traditional powers. Michigan and Penn st also deserve spots somewhere on this list but they are lacking in the trophy case as well.
And before anyone derails this thread, I’m trying to talk about Saban and Bama. If anyone wants to discuss A&M, take it to the A&M thread and bring proof or shut your punk mouths.

The Aggie doesn’t get it. Which is why he denies they paid for a recruiting class last year
What does A&M have to do with this? I’m addressing how Saban brags about NIL and how the reputation of Bama commands 7 figures for certain positions regardless if a player has played a down, then two years later is acting like paying players is beneath him.
Look I’m all for the second stance. I do not think college players should be given this much before they even play a down. But Saban essentially bragged about Bryce and his NIL deal using it as a recruiting tool. Then changed his tune when he found out other schools might pay that much too.
Do they just not have the kids or is it the district they are in?

Isn't that after he signed the dotted line with Bama? After all, that's what the thread is about agreeing to sums before the step foot on campus.
I was just referring to his comments on “before they earn it.” He talks about Bryce Young and implies that the qb position at Bama is the million dollar position, not that the player earned it:
