I don't understand all the incessant need to compare teams of different eras. Why can't we just agree that both programs were great and dominant for their respective eras?
I remember watching those Husker teams as a teenager with a great amount of awe. I never rooted for them as they were not SEC, but I certainly respected them. Now, as a man, I have the same awe for Saban and what his Alabama teams have accomplished.
