    I think the 2018 Clemson team is in the top 10 best college teams of all-time. I'm not sure they're number 1. The 1995 Nebraska and 2001 Miami teams were better, IMO.

    I caught this on tv this morning by accident. It has had a positive effect on my whole day. I'm not an ACC, SEC, Pac 12 or anything or anybody. Didn't have a dog in the fight, could care less, I'm a hockey dad that grew up with a football passion and amounted to nothing following that path. After today and learning more about this guy, I'm all in on Dabo. Congrats Clemson.

And having a season where not a single game was close on top of pulling off the *largest National Championship blowout ever* ARE NCAA records dude.

    He's right, all Season long, every single media outlet out there was touting Bama as the best ever. They stomped em so they are the best. Little keyboard Idiots stating their fanboy opinions of Mythical teams from days gone passed are just that, keyboard Idiots living in a fantasy World. It was settled on the field. Because, until they got their ass kicked ,you Idiots were going along with the best ever line.

    • Imhere Tofuckyowife

      *1995 Nebraska Cornhuskers* are *THEE Best team ever* - No close games (2018 Clemson had 2 games they barely survived and 2001 Miami even had one game they barely survived as well), all blowouts, best margin of victory (yes better than 2018 Clemson's and 2001 Miami's), all capped off with the biggest national championship blowout record in college football history.

      Phil Wilson 3 months ago

      Ryan Robinson Alabama was far better Alabama was better overall in 09,11,12,15’and 17 and that’s just under Saban. This team had no linebackers one decent defensive lineman,and it’s three best pass rushers did not play against Clemson.

    • Dirty30 #TheMarathonContinues

    • RDT 205
      RDT 205 4 months ago +1

      +L I agree, Alabama was not nearly as deep on the defensive line like years past either. Shit the best Bama defense under Saban was the 2016 team that lost to Clemson with one second on the clock. That defense was RETARDED loaded... Pass rushing savages, loaded secondary, great Linebackers etc.... But for all these folks to say this Bama team was the best is just stupid, Alabama had a loaded backfield this year and rarely ran the ball, just threw it all over the field. I'm not a fan of spread football offensively, I dont mind throwing in spread wrinkles but running the football and controlling the line of scrimmage is where games are typically won. Alabama threw the ball way to much this year, it was successful but didnt work against Clemson. That first pick six just killed us.

    Dabo stop living in the moment! You not even top three! Miami 2000 is number 1, USC 04 is number 2, and texas 05 is number 3. Alabama got two natty teams that are still better than yours in 09 and 12. Yall are top ten but not top five and definitely not greatest. While you're at it work on getting your players paid for all the revenue they brought in for the university, conference, and NCAA. You and Saban can be advocates on economic and social change in that regard.

      +Larri Lindsey The 2009 Alabama team had *3 struggle games* in which one of them was against an *unranked* Tennessee. So that eliminates them. And the 2012 Bama team already exhibited a lost as well as a struggle win within 5 points. So that eliminates *both* of those teams from the conversation of "greatest team ever" sir.
