The first list is a bunch of small schools and the second are big schools. I'm terrible at trivia.

My guess would be the OOC schedules of 2 conferences(the SEC being one more than likely)

A is the list of teams Bobby Bowden beat as head coach at Samford (and maybe West Virginia?) while B is the list of teams Bowden has beaten as the head coach at West Virginia and Florida State. Yet he is credited with Division 1 victories for the wins on the first list and thus the sole reason he is ahead of Joe Paterno on the all-time 1-A wins list.

Great guess Alex!!!

List A represents the first 30 "major colleges" Bowden beat.

List B represents the first 30 "major colleges" Paterno beat.

Notice any difference?

Bowden's win total is fraudulent, but I think most educated college football fans know that by now.

It amazes me that people often bring up the fact that Paterno "fattened" his career record while PSU was an independent (completely false). Yet you rarely hear people talk about Bowden doing exactly that when FSU joined the ACC, a sad sack conference until Virginia Tech and BC joined a few years ago.
