Apples and Oranges. Whether they beat USC or not, Texas probably has the best overall team it has ever had, including the 3 champion teams from the 60s and 70s. I think you take the best team from 1916 and the best team from 2005 and 1916 is going down because they are wearing leather helmets.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I am pulling for the Longhorns....2cnd favorite team overall. We'll see how USC does against a team with some experience and consistancy on both sides of the ball. Go Horns

Clearly. I was using that team as a tongue-in-cheek example at the absurdity of such comparisons. They try and do this with High School Football Teams here in Georgia all the time. I was going more for the fact that the media is already crowning USC the champs and trying to make them out to be the greatest team of all time. The great thing about college football is that any of the premier programs can beat another premier program on any given Saturday.

As my great aunt in Austin says.....Go Horns..Hook 'em.

Yeah, I was kidding. But I still think today's teams have an advantage over teams of 30 years ago. Better conditioning, better weight training, better equipment.

USC will be a formidable opponent for Texas. I'm hoping for good things.

As I've always said. I'm not a sports fan. I'm a Longhorn fan.

Better nutrition, better health care, better understanding of medicine, better understanding of the body and how it works best, and the list goes on...

the last eam that ESPN dubbed as "possibly the best ever" and "could possibly beat an NFL team" was the 2003 Oklahoma Sooners. Look how well that turned out.

at least OU doesn't have to play in Dallas again, San Diego is a much better destination than having to play in Dallas at 10 am in January.

Being originally from Ohio, I was a USC hater for many years, but now my son goes to USC so I'm a Trojan fan now. He's a junior and going to the Rose Bowl game. Lucky kid, he's seen two national championships already. And three years ago, he and I went to the Fiesta Bowl game where Ohio State beat Miami in triple overtime for the national championship. What a great game that was, probably the best football game I ever saw in person.
