Minnesota top 10
Congratulations to Minnesota for finishing #10 in the AP poll. They have been ranked in the AP Poll only twice since 1962, #18 in 1999 and #20 in 2003. Now they probably would have been ranked in 1967, but from 1962-1967, the AP only ranked the top 10.

Coincidentally, they shared the Big 10 title 3 ways in 1967 with Indiana and Purdue. Neither Indiana or Minnesota has won a Big 10 title since. Purdue didn't win one until 2000. The 9 pre 2010 members other than IU and Minnesota all have a title since 2000. In 1967 Indiana went to the Rose Bowl as the school who had gone least recently and lost to USC and OJ Simpson. For the next 15 years either Ohio ST. or Michigan won at least a share of the title.

1962 was Minnesota's 3rd year in a row in the top 10. They were once a national power and have 4 AP MNCs, including 1960.

I simultaneous feel this is mundane and strange. They're a major conference team, so you'd think they'd finish better more often but I suppose not.

How did Minnesota have a CFB dynasty?

That was a little before my time. The first year I really remember much in college football was 1967. IU, Minnesota and Purdue tied for the Big 10. Indiana went to the Rose Bowl. Wyoming went to the Sugar Bowl. Texas A&M under Gene Stallings won the SWC with a 6-4 record and then beat Alabama under Bear Bryant in the Cotton Bowl. Indiana, Wyoming, Oregon St. and Purdue were in the final AP top 10. It was a year very different from nearly every year that has followed. The next year Texas introduced the wishbone and all of college football changed.
