    Re: Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    2012 Alabama would beat 2009 Alabama IMO...

    As for 1997... I followed Michigan very closely that year, as a school mate and family friend (Marcus Knight) was a WR on that team. I think they were good, but very over rated. Charles Woods on was s shut down corner, which wouldn't have mattered in a game against Nebraska. Nebraska's oline, plus the rotation of backs, would have worn Michigan down imo.

    .
    Nebraska's strongest teams were essentially the same team. Players did not leave early for the NFL in the same way because the rookie scale was not in place yet. This means that for Alabama to accomplish the feat in this era is more challenging because of the turnover of players, making Bama the moe impressive Dynasty.
    excellent point that is often overlooked.

    Oklahoma being irrelevant and extremely weak at the time pre-Bob Stoops also contributed to those husker teams having the success that they did. I think they laid 70 pts on the sooners one of those seasons.

    Tom Osborne and some of his former players are weighing in on this...

    i'm more impressed with our 5 year run but no single team can match the '95 Huskers. They had 27 players out of 85 on NFL rosters and another handful that played in other league (world league or cfl)...darn close to half their squad went pro!

    2001 Miami would be the closest.

    It took that many for Lloyd Carr to ever win a championship.
    I'm more into results than NFL draftees. Had we rightfully gotten the number one vote in '66 then you could say '64-'66 was a dynasty with Nebraska providing two of our huge bowl wins. But with the media prejudice against us and for the domers they never would've called us that just as they wouldn't vote us number 1 when they could ND. But things began to slide in '67. '78-'79 looked like it had potential, especially with the long undefeated streak, but '80 brought the end to that. And as much respect as I had for Nebraska in the 90s they weren't unanimous number 1 each year and weren't as impressive over the four year stretch as we have been IMO.

    Re: Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    the more i think about it. i think nebraska is lucky they didnt face Michigan that year, cuz in 1994 they were playing a declining Erickson team, in 1995 they were playing a young inexperienced florida, and 1997 they played Fulmer. They lucked out in the bowl matchups in that they got up and coming teams (florida would win in 96, and Tennessee would in 98) and a declining Miami. I feel that the USC vs LSU03 talk and USC vs Auburn 04 holds more weight in that both teams could win than 97 Nebraska vs Michigan does

    Re: Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    I think 95 Nebraska is the best college football team in my lifetime. They punished everyone on their schedule and then destroyed one of Spurrier's best teams at Florida. That Florida team was undefeated and crushed everyone in the SEC that season, but could not stay on the field with Nebraska. I think that was the same Florida team that had Manning's Tennessee team down 35-0 at their place during the half.

    Re: Alabama's Dynasty v. Nebraska Dynasty

    Let me just say I think it's classy of Osborne to respond the way he did. I also thought it took a lot of courage for Grant Wistrom to say that perhaps they would not beat us. My opinion of the guys on those Husker teams just went up.*
