25 Pre-Integration Sports Records and Achievements That Are Overrated

16. 222 Points in a College Football Game

Team/Player: Georgia Tech Football
Date: 1916

This one is ridiculous for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that Georgia Tech's win came against a school that no longer had a football team. It also didn't help that African-Americans were not allowed to play at the time. While it may have done little to prevent Tech from demolishing the 14-man Cumberland squad, a few more talented players might have helped limit the damage to, say, 150-0.
