1965 Ncaa College Football Season

College Football has long been a popular American sport. We now have a system in which teams are ranked by the press and a computer to determine who should play in the National Championship game.

This has not been the case forever. The league used to depend on a number of polls that would determine the rankings of different teams and who would be the National Champions. This was the case in 1965.

In that season the AP Poll was the most popular of each of them and they would award the AP Trophy to the team that would win the polls at the end of the season. Like today, there was also a poll called the Coaches Poll in which the coaches would vote to determine what teams in the nation were the best. In 1965 there were 121 teams. Those teams were voted on for the AP Poll by 55 different sportswriters. Unlike today, where the writers tell who their favorite 25 teams are, in those days they would just give their 10 best teams.

The season featured a number of solid teams that would win the hearts of many people in America. Entering the season the Nebraska Cornhuskers were the number 1 teams in the nation. They would experience a season in which they would start the season out as the top team, and they would go on to win every game during the regular season.

They were not the only undefeated team, however. There were a couple of other teams in the preseason top 10 that managed to go throughout the season without losing a game. Arkansas and Michigan State would also have 10-0 seasons. They would each win their conferences and they earned their way into bowl games.

Today we have dozens of bowl games that are awarded to almost every team that wins enough games to qualify. This was not the case in 1965. There were only 6 bowl games to play in. Only the very best teams in the nation would be invited to play in those games.

The 6 games featured the top teams, but they would not play each other. While today the National Championship would likely be decided by two of the very best teams in the nation playing each other, in those days the top 3 teams all played in separate bowl games.

After perfect seasons by all three of those universities they all experienced tragic defeats in their bowl games. Each was pushing for the National Championship, but they were defeated by the likes of UCLA(number 7 in the nation), LSU(unranked) and Alabama(4th in the nation). With the loss of all of these teams there was much confusion as to who should take home the championship.

When the AP Poll came out the Alabama Crimson Tide team was named the National Champion team. There was a differing opinion from the Coaches Poll however, as they named Michigan State the National Champions.

This was a crazy year for football as there was a split decision for National Champions. The Heisman Trophy would go to Mike Garrett, a star running back from USC.

1965 NHL season

NHL
by toff63

The 1965 season of the National Hockey league was the 49th season in the history of the league. The league at that time featured just 6 teams. These teams faced off many times throughout the 70 game season.

 

The teams that took part in the NHL during that year were the Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Black Hawks, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins and New York Rangers. The previous season the league belonged to the Montreal Canadiens. Montreal had played great in the regular season the previous year and managed to find a tremendous amount of success in the playoffs, winning the Stanley Cup.

 

With the Canadiens taking the championship the previous year everyone was aiming to knock them down from the top of the league. The Canadiens looked like a tough team however, and they would not be an easy team to beat in the 1965-66 season.

 

This season featured some new awards for NHL participants. There was an award called the Lester Patrick Trophy and another called the Conn Smythe Trophy. The first trophy was to be awarded to Jack Adams that season because of his contribution to the growth of hockey in the United States. The second trophy would be a coveted trophy, given to the most valuable player of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

 

Although it did not affect the teams during the 1965 season, there was a huge change to the NHL that was coming. During the season there were 6 more cities that were awarded franchises. These franchises were slated to begin play in the 1967 season.

Just like the year before, the Canadiens took the regular season by storm. The Canadiens were the only team in all of the NHL that managed to win at least 40 games. The Canadiens were solid and most people picked them as the favorites to win it all after their great play in the regular season.

 

The next best team in the league was the team from Chicago, the Black Hawks. They managed to win 37 games on the year. The Black Hawks were led by the dynamic duo of Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita. These two players were the two leading scorers in the NHL. Bobby Hull had 54 goals and 43 assists on the year. The 54 goals were by far the highest total of any player in the league. Mikita chipped in another 30 goals and 48 assists on the year, tying Bobby Rousseau of Montreal for 2nd in the NHL in scoring.

 

The 4 teams that would ultimately make the playoffs were the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Black Hawks and Red Wings. The Canadiens and Maple Leafs would square off and the Black Hawks and Red Wings would play against each other in the first round.

 

The Canadiens dominated the first round, sweeping the Maple Leafs in the series. Meanwhile, the Black Hawks were upset by the Red Wings, losing the series 4-2. The Red Wings and Canadiens would ultimately square off for the Stanley Cup.

 

In the end, the favorites entering the season came out on top, as the Canadiens beat the Red Wings in 6 games. The Canadiens would be the 1965-66 Stanley Cup champs.

1965 season in the NBA

The 1965-66 NBA Season would be the 20th season in the history of the NBA. The league was in a stretch at this point that was dominated by the likes of the Boston Celtics. While the Lakers were a tough rival in the opposite conference, the Celtics had managed to win 7 straight NBA Championships to this point.

The Celtics would find themselves in stiff competition in this season. While they were the favorites to take the league in that season after winning so many consecutive championships, they would have to pass through the likes of Wilt Chamberlain and the Philadelphia 76ers.

 

Chamberlain was a dominant player that managed to lead the league in almost every major category. He went on to score the most points, pull down the most rebound and shoot the ball at a higher percentage than any other player in the league during the 1965-66 season. With Wilt leading the way the team managed to take the honors of having the best record in the NBA through the regular season. They managed to win 55 games. This total was one more than what the Celtics were able to achieve that season.

 

On the other end the Lakers were once again leading the way in the Western Division. The Western Division was admittedly the weaker division of the two and the Lakers were the only squad to win more than 50 percent of their games. The Lakers were a solid team however and were led by NBA legend Jerry West.

 

West and Chamberlain would make up two of the 5 players in the All-NBA First Team. The other players that would achieve this honor were the great Oscar Robertson, Jerry Lucas and Rick Barry.

 

Wilt Chamberlain would go on to win the Most Valuable Player award.

Rick Barry was just a rookie that season and would win the Rookie of the Year award after making the All-NBA First Team. The Coach of the Year honors would go to Dolph Schayes, the coach of the 76ers.

 

6 of the 9 teams in the league would make the playoffs. Each division would send the top 3 teams in the league to the playoffs. The bottom two teams from each division would square off for a chance to take on the top team in the Division.

 

The Celtics would manage to win the first series despite falling behind 2-1 to the Royals, led by Robertson. In the west, the St. Louis Hawks managed to take home a victory. These teams would square off against the 76ers and Lakers.

 

The Lakers managed to pull out a series victory and would make it to the finals. The Celtics managed to take 4 of 5 away from the 76ers despite the fact that Chamberlain scored 28 points and averaged 30 rebounds per game.

 

The Lakers and Celtics squared off again and would finish the Finals in dramatic fashion. The two teams went the distance, stretching the series to 7 games. Boston was able to pull things out in a close 95-93 game to finish things off, winning their 8th NBA Championship in a row.
