Def '92 for me. Nobody gave us a chance against the canes. Never seen a more arrogant and obnoxious team than that bunch. To go out and just crush them was as sweet as it gets. Last year was close, especially not letting them cross the 50. But we went in with high expectations to win that one.
For me, the greatest NC performance has to be last year's. I understand the unique circumstances surrounding the game (revenge, rematch), but to completely shut down what had been mentioned as one of the greatest teams ever was sweet indeed. We didn't just beat them... we beat them down with brute strength.
The Miami win was certainly the best other than that one.
'92 without question
actually didn't play well at all in Pasadena...
last year played the defensive performance of a lifetime but offense struggled when they hit LSU territory.
would love if we can play a complete 60 minutes on jan 7
Hands down the beatdown of Miami.
I would rank last year's win just ahead of 1992. Last year's LSU team probably ends up ranked as the best college football team in the modern era with another win over Alabama. Instead they were beaten so badly that they are mocked. Look at the teams that they beat leading up to the BCSCG. Simply incredible schedule.
Miami did the TALK.
Bama did the WALK.
This article helped fuel the desire for the 1992 team.
The 1992 championship was sugar sweet, not to mention hilarious, for all the reasons mentioned above.
However, my vote would be the 1978 national championship (the Jan 1, 1979 "Goal Line Stand" game against Penn State).
That is my favorite game of all time and I think it is one of the best football games ever played.
