Can anyone argue for another team in history that had a better resume?
They would have to win the BCS Championship to even be considered... Remember Alabama won the first meeting if the kicker could hit ANY type of FG. Lightning doesn't strike twice.

It's virtually impossible to pick a "greatest team ever". Modern football is so diluted it doesn't even resemble the original game. It's not hard to run up big numbers when you can't touch or hit without some sort of wussified penalty. It has become a game of who can throw the ball the furthest.

Yep, those guys.

Greatest. Team. Ever. ESPN and their SportsNation disciples said so.

I didnt say they were! I'm just asking the question... If someone has a better resume, do tell. I am just not aware of any team beating so many other successful teams in a season so I'm asking because there may be...
How about a Sooner team that won 47 straight games! (More than just ONE season.)

Geez, this thread is ridiculous. Let's take a little history and tradition into account folks.

The 1869 Princeton Tigers would kick all y'all ass! And then when they'd finish, they'd immediately go back to their dorms to study organic chemistry!

The 2001 Canes, 1995 Huskers, 2005 Horns, and 2004 Trojan were all better.

I didn't watch much of the 2005 Horns, but the Tigers defense would have had its hands full with Vince Young, who was already pro-ready by the time that game rolled around. I think they would have a chance against a team like that, though.

If you want to count in the 2004 Trojans, despite being ineligible, then I'd have to agree with you there - never seen a team any more dominant than that. Their passing attack and balance in the backfield would have given this Tigers team a lot of trouble. Can't see them stopping that team.

The Canes of 2001 were similar to this Alabama team. Very physical defense like the Tide, and an in-your-face offense that mixed grind it out running and gets the tight end involved in a varied passing attack. I think we can go a long way to answering the question of LSU vs. 2001 Canes by watching how they deal with the Tide tonight.

The 1995 Huskers might be the most dominant team I can remember. Probably the strongest on the front O-line of any team I can think of, and Frazier was just a freak show at QB. Just a bunch of big, punishing, old-school bullies at offense. They're like the 1985 Chicago Bears of college football -- offensively anyway. Would be hard to imagine LSU being able to take down that squad.
