Default Do you agree with ESPN and the greatest CF teams in history?

Obviously ESPN doesnt see last years team as the GOAT.

Iím not sure about those teams that won before my birth, and I vaguely recall the 95 huskers team, but def think last years teams beats the 04í fighting Pete Carrollís... but perhaps Iím biased

I was about to say the same. I think 5 is a fair spot, but not when you’ve got 2004 USC at #2.

First of all, that Trojan team never even had to play undefeated #2 Auburn [who beat 5 top-16 teams] or undefeated #4 Utah, let alone beat pair of undefeated teams in playoff format.

Secondly, they didn’t beat another top 100 team on this list, whereas Clemson clobbered #86 Bama.

It's basically impossible to compare teams from different eras. The only fair way I can see is by record and to look at competition which to me says 15-0 with beatdown wins over 14-0 #1 & 13-0 #4 should speak for itself

Clemson's 2018 team is definitely one of the all-time greats. But like a few of you have said. It is hard to compare greats teams from different eras.
