I miss the OU/Nebraska rivalry immensely. It was a colossal mistake when the NCAA (Big XII) ended that rivalry.


Everything about this post is right on the money.

Huh? Warren Sapp was an NFL rookie with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1995. He didn't play against the 1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Wow, this is a hard one. I'd have to go with '95 Nebraska. But reluctantly. '01 Miami was loaded with talent. But I just feel the '95 NU was the better team.

I already miss the Huskers in the Big XII. I wish they would have never created the Big XII. I loved the old Big 8.

No question 2001 Miami was amazing, but keep in mind that a mediocre Colorado team beat Nebraska worse than they did that year (62-36 vs 37-14). They also had a close call against Virginia Tech to close the regular season.

1995 Nebraska was simply on another level. They CRUSHED everyone in their path, including a stacked Florida team that had crushed everyone in their path up to that point.

'95 Nebraska 38, '01 Miami 24.

This whole disscusion about miami vs nebraska is quite exciting. IDK why 05 texas is even in the conversation. The only thing texas had going for them would have been VY and as it stands right now you're basing your success off of a usc team that was highly overrated. 01 miami vs 95 nebraska are the only two teams worth even mentioning for the greatest all time. if we were to talk about nfl success i would give it to miami only because of the ammount of players still playing at such high levels. but sadly we are not. because lets be real lawrence phillips was probably the second biggest bust of all time (behind ryan leaf). if they did play it would be a low scoring high power deffensive game.

The 1995 Nebraska and Miami teams did not play one another.
The 1994 Nebraska and Miami teams did, however, with Nebraska winning on the Hurricanes' home field, pushing and shoving the Miami defense all over the field in the 2nd half, especially in the crucial 4th quarter. That was Miami's best defense of all their great runs from 1983-2002, hands-down, with Warren Sapp, Ray Lewis, and Dwayne Johnson all gasping for air with their hands on their hips as the game came to an end.

You've got to be kidding me here. There is no contest. The 1995 Huskers were simply the greatest team to ever set foot on a field. The backups played in every single second half all season long, including the National Championship. Nebraska was stacked at every position with pure talent. Miami won one title, and they beat a 2 loss team in the NC that had just been completely torched by Colorado. Miami had no competition, they played what...3 ranked teams total and only one in the top 10. Nebraska wont the title in 94, 95 and 97. The 95 team featured all the championship caliber players from all those teams. Im not even going to add anything about Texas to this argument as they are nowhere near the caliber of either the 95 huskers or 01 canes.

The Huskers average margin of victory was 39 points lol. They averaged 53.2 points a game and only 14.5 against. They blew everyone out that they played, including 4 teams in the top 10. FOUR TEAMS IN THE TOP TEN and the smallest margin of victory in those 4 games.....was 23 points. I also remember Miami needing a last second stop and FG to beat #14 Virginia Tech 26-24 that year. Miami played nobody in the top 10 until the NC.

The most impressive stat yet...If you factor out all the time the backups were in, in the second half, the Nebraska starters outscored their opponents (including all 4 top ten teams they played) 525 - 59. 17 of those points against came in the NC against undefeated Florida. Through 11 games, the starters had 42 points scored against em. Far better than 01 canes or the bama defenses of today.

You want to talk big names from the team? Ok...

Tommie Frazier - Greatest Option QB of all time
Lawrence Phillips - Pro Bowl player
Ahman Green - Pro Bowl, Legend...one of the top 10 if not top 5 RB's of all time
Chris Dishman - Pro Bowl
Scott Frost - NFL player
Aaron Graham - Pro Bowl
Sheldon Jackson - NFL
Joel AND Jeff Mackovicka - NFL
Adam Treu - Pro Bowl
Michael Booker - Pro Bowl
Doug Colman - NFL
Jay Foreman - Pro Bowl
Jon Hesse - NFL
Mike Minter - NFL
Christian Peter - Pro Bowl
Jason Peter - Pro Bowl
Mike Rucker - Pro Bowl
Jared Tomich - NFL
Eric Warfield - Pro Bowl
Jamel Williams - NFL
Tyrone Williams - NFL
Grant Wistrom - Pro Bowl, Legend, One of the greatest DE's of all time
Kris Brown - Pro Bowl, one of the greatest kickers of all time
Bill Lafleur - NFL
Aaron Taylor - Pro Bowl, one of the greatest OL of all time


The list goes on, but im tired of typing.

Although the 01 Hurricanes have more successful players in the NFL, but that doesn't mean anything.

Who wins in this fantasy match? .
Miami would win. They'd load the box and contain the backfield -- what would Nebraska do then?

The physical freaks on Miami's 2001 team made for an unbelievably talented team. Well coached - would have been better coached if Butch Davis had stayed there.

Who cares - they wouldn't have been able to compete with Miami's blend of speed and power.
