That's pretty funny and if that was the actually field, they still only score 1 touchdown.

Wow, I can't believe I missed this comment. The 09 Longhorns played a close game against the Crimson Tide without their star, senior QB. They put up points against a Bama defense that was almost as good as the one we just saw in the BCS championship, and they did it with a Freshman, Wide-eyed, QB who hadn't touched the field the whole year. I honestly believe the 09 Longhorns with Colt McCoy at the Helm and with Jordan Shipley could beat this years LSU Tigers. Colt and Ship would only need one TD.

The '72 Trojans the unanimous No. 1 in both polls, but USC's strength of schedule and the dominance it displayed in plowing through its opponents was astounding, if not unprecedented.

The `72 Trojans beat their 12 opponents by an average of almost 28 points per game. Their schedule included six ranked teams -- No. 4 Nebraska, No. 15 Stanford, No. 18 Washington, No. 14 UCLA, No. 10 Notre Dame, and No. 3 Ohio State -- which USC beat by an average of 20.2 points per game. And, as ESPN pointed out, the '72 Trojans capped the season with a 25-point victory over the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl.

In terms of pure talent, '72 USC also had five first-team All-Americans: linebacker Richard Wood, fullback Sam "Bam" Cunningham, offensive tackle Pete Adams, defensive tackle John Grant, and consensus pick at tight end Charlie Young. In addition, 10 seniors were taken in the 1973 NFL draft, including three first-round selections: Young, Cunningham, and Adams.
But that's just the seniors. The '72 underclassmen included future All-American (not to mention NFL Hall-of-Famer) Lynn Swann, who was a junior that year, as well two standout sophomores: USC legend and "Irish" killer Anthony Davis and Wood, the Trojans' first three-time, first-team All-American.

If they'd played and beaten Miami that year, but they didn't. Miami was the clear #2 team and they should have played OU, but the BCS computers said otherwise.

The 2001 Miami Hurricanes were also pretty dominant, and eligible, and were very close to winning back-to-back BCS titles the following year
Obviously you know I agree with that. I also think the 2000 Miami Hurricanes were one of the best ever. Other than the narrow loss to Washington then getting shafted by the BCS even though we BEAT Florida State (And FSU gets beat by Oklahoma). Najeh Davenport, Andre Johnson, Santana Moss, Kevin Beard, Ken Dorsey, Clinton Portis, DJ Williams, Ed Reed, Phillip Buchanon, Dan Morgan, Jonathan Vilma, Vince Wilfork, and Butch Davis as coach. Those were the glory days. I think Al Golden is currently the right man to lead the team back to college football prominence.

Long live the Orange Bowl to! SunLife Stadium blows!

Can anyone argue for another team in history that had a better resume?
They are not even in the top ten.

In my time paying attention to sports, the best college football team was the 1995 Nebraska team.
