The 1994-95 season, the only other time it happened was the 1990-91 season.

 

Here are all of the times Nebraska was ranked in the AP poll prior to this season.

 

Poll Date NU AP Rank
11/10/2014 21
11/17/2014 21
1/2/1995 19
12/26/1994 23
3/14/1994 22
12/28/1993 20
12/21/1993 17
12/14/1993 20
12/7/1993 25

2/22/1966 8
2/15/1966 9
2/8/1966 9
2/28/1950 16

 

This chart alone should be proof that Miles is our guy and should be for years to come.  Until he was hired, we hadn't been top 25 since 1995! It also proves how difficult it has been, for whatever reason, to sustain success at Nebraska.

Not to take away from your point, but this doesn't prove Miles is our guy. If anything it shows that Nee was more "our guy" than Miles. Your second point is spot on though.

The one thing that I will say is that I would like to see that ranking more in Dec/Jan/Feb.  That is based more on success vs a November ranking which is based more on perceived possible success.

Ranking of Seasons by AP appearances

 

1990-91 - 13

1993-94 - 7

1965-66 - 4

2014-15 - 2

1994-95 - 2

2018-19 - 1

1991-92 - 1

1977-78 - 1

1949-50 - 1

 

It seem very probable that if we beat Okie St that we won't lose again in 2018 and will end up being ranked for another 3 weeks which would tie us with the 65-66 team with 4 weeks being ranked.

I think you were off on some of the seasons.  I fixed it for you.
