GridIron Wars is the game currently (and for the foreseeable future) on my table. I am playing the 1950s ATG set. It is a great game and I really enjoy learning about this era when college football was the #2 sport in the country.
I have a question for anyone that owns the 1940s ATG set or perhaps someone at Downey Games who is familiar with it. The website lists the teams included in the set. 1946 Alabama is listed. I believe that Alabama team was only a little better than mediocre, finishing with a 7-4 record. The 1945 Alabama team, however, was 10-0 and arguably should have been named National Champion. I know there are some limitations on rating teams from this era, but I was wondering if perhaps the website list contains a typo and that the 1945 team is actually the one included.
Can anyone help on this? Thank you!!
It is the 1946 team. I will assume that at the time the ratings were done, the 1945 stats were not available.
After digging real quick, I am sure this is the case. The Roll Tide website has stats for 1946, but only recaps for 1945.
