1995 Nebraska was selected as the greatest team of all time by voters on ESPN Classic. They beat 71 Nebraska in the final matchup.
No doubt the Nebraska fans were out in force voting online, but Herbstreet and May were complaining non-stop because of their hard ons for any team that came after 2000 and could throw the bal (i.e. 04 USC 01 Miami.) When Herb said something about how good defenses could shut down mid 90's Nebraska by loading up on the run I wanted to smack him. Brilliant strategy! I wonder why the hell a Warren Sapp/Ray Lewis led Miami team wasn't able to pull it off.
I agree 04 SC and 01 Miami were great great teams and would have matched up well with 95 Nebraska, but sometimes those two come across as having no idea what they are talking about. These are the same idiots who spent all of last year saying that 05 USC was the greatest college team of all-time before they even played in (and lost) the Rose Bowl.
