Most Dominant Team of All Time

Postby The Schwab » Tue Nov 07, 2017 12:04 pm

Here are some I'd nominate after doing a little research-

1989 Beulah, 2001 Trinity, 2008 Harvey (yes I know they lost a game), 2013 and 2014 Cavalier. Just some I found. Feel free to debate.

The year Hillsboro won it all they were pretty dominant. Maybe even those Cavalier teams that won AA titles as well.

I said Beulah 1989 because they only allowed points in 2 games. 3 straight shutouts in the playoffs. Season score of 498-19!

Trinity 2001 only allowed points in 2 games. 11 wins by more than 35, closest game was 27-0. Season score of 510-14!

2008 Harvey- After the loss to Velva had 8 straight shutouts to win it all. Season score 390-34

2013 and 14 Cavalier- I'll give the nod to 2014 hard to argue with 754 points! Closest game against 9 man competition was 36-6 in the final

This is the team I always come back too. I watched them 5+ games that year, but they lost a game. Absolutely crushed in the playoffs. I'll go back in a little bit and look at those scores.

Hillsboro was very dominant in '08 but their loss was at home to an average Richland squad (though Richland did make the playoffs) during the regular season. I would consider the '13 and '14 Cavalier teams to be the most dominant teams I have ever watched. During the '13 regular season there was not a single point scored against Cavalier. That is the only team I know of to accomplish that in North Dakota. Furthermore, both of their championship games were very lopsided. Especially against WNG in '13 when Ryan Chrest put on an offensive clinic for the ages.

I would also consider throwing the '15 Richland team in the mix. They finished the season 12-0 blowing out every opponent in the regular season with the exception of Hankinson who was a second-round playoff team that season. Additionally, during the playoffs they beat every single ranked team in the final state polls on their way to the title. Richland was the #3 seed going into the playoffs. They had a week 1 by week. Week two they took on #2 in the state Cavalier in RIchland and won 52-22 (ending Cavaliers post season win streak and the opportunity for a three-peat). In the quarterfinals the following week the took on #1 in the state Thompson in Richland and walked away with a 48-32 victory. In the state semifinals they faced #4 in the state Shiloh Christian in Richland and again collected another lopsided victory winning 50-22. The win sent Richland to the Dakota Bowl for the first time in ten years.

Many of us remember well the state title game that year. It featured #3 11-0 Richland against #5 11-0 North Prairie. It was the biggest test Richland faced the entire season and featured one of the most memorable plays in Dakota Bowl history: the Hook-n-Ladder. Richland won the game 44-38 completing their perfect season and cementing themselves forever in Dakota Bowl lore.

Don't get me wrong, the 2015 Richland team was a very good team who finished the season undefeated. But if we're talking about the most dominant team of all time, I don't think they're on the list. In my opinion it's tough to get more dominant then this:

Valley City W 45-0
Killdeer W 41-0
Hazen W 27-0
DLB W 35-0
Bottineau W 42-0
Beulah W 41-0
Watford City W 54-0
Belcourt W 44-8
Bishop Ryan W 41-0
Lisbon W 52-0 Playoffs
Rugby W 40-0 Playoffs
Hazen W 48-6 Playoffs

I'm not sure I can agree with that. While I would not consider them the most dominant of all time, I would definitely put the '15 Richland team before both the '08 Hillsboro and Harvey teams.

I will say that after taking a peak at the stats you provided on the '01 Trinity team, they now have my vote for most dominant team. Their consistency in their margin of victory as well as in their apparent defensive prowess is beyond impressive. Just for fun I did a similar crunch on the '13 Cavalier team and this is what I came up with:

Regular Season:
Record: (7-0)
Points for: 416
Points against: 0
59.4 PPG

Playoffs:
LaMoure-LM W 50-24
South Border W 52-6
Napoleon-GS W 62-8
Westhope-NG W 54-6 (Dakota Bowl XXI)
Points for: 218
Points against: 44
54.5 PPG

It is not quite as impressive as the '01 Trinity stats due to them only playing 11 games and allowing a lot more points in the playoffs. Nonetheless, it is nothing to shake a stick at. I still would be curious to know if '13 Cavalier is the only team to hold all opponents to 0 points in the regular season.

2015 PRFL Aggies. Undefeated, most of the points scored on them were in the second half when the JV were playing.

If Cavalier has a team that shutout everyone? They have my vote. Especially in 9 man.
