    Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    Now that we are a dynasty, lets compare it with the last dynasty. Nebraska has Frazier and those boys and they were bad. They went 60-3 and that is still consider the best five year run. Now we have us, having to go to a league championship game and probably the greatest D of all time and the leadership and the line. 61-7 in the last five year run. Which one is the best? You know who I got!

    Both are among the best ever. Impossible to say who is the best. IMO

    Re: Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    I don't see the actual poll ;p

    That said, the breakdown on how difficult those schedules were:
    Nebraska faced 11 Top 10 teams and 22 ranked teams
    Alabama faced 14 Top 10 teams and 23 ranked teams
    Nebraska's opponents had an overall record over that 5 year period of 387-286-8 (58.3%)
    Alabama's opponents had an overall record over that 5 year period of 493-3050 (61.58%)

    We lost more games, won as many titles, and played a tougher schedule - however, they lost fewer games than tougher games we played.
    It would be a very difficult argument to make for either one being "better" than the other.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Our three are consensus titles.

    Re: Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    I know with absolute certainty that Alabama has faced significantly harder schedules than Nebraska did in their era. Go back and look at the teams that they played. They were horrible. Think Boise State bad. Even the Sooners were putrid during this era.

    That doesn't make Nebraska a bad team, but it has always cast a shadow over their "dominance" in my mind.

    Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    No poll. It would be overwhelmingly in favor of the Tide. Just thoughts on it.

    Compare how many times they played a top 3 team.

    Nebraska did it five times, Alabama six, though as you can see, we've had considerably tougher sledding, playing FOUR #1 ranked teams while Nebraska played none:

    Nebraska:
    '94: #2 Colorado, #3 Miami
    '95: #2 Florida
    '97: #2 Washington, #3 Tennessee
    avg ranking: 2.4

    Alabama:
    '09: #1 Florida, #2 Texas
    '10: #1 LSU, #1 LSU
    '12: #3 Georgia, #1 Notre Dame
    avg ranking: 1.5

    Me braska probably looked better but we played a tough schedule and always had the 1 vs 2 at then end of the year. Probably a push so far, but the good news is it isn't over yet.

    Re: Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    Those Nebraska teams were more dominant during the run, but against lesser competition. The 1995 team was arguably one of the best teams of all time, though I think you can put the 2011 team in that category. I think both are equally good, and had they had the BCS format in 1997 Nebraska would have beat Michigan... I would give us the slight edge because of all the rules to create parody in college football. Most of the ranked teams they beat aren't very memorable (except the bowl wins).
