Teams at the end of our schedule had weeks and weeks to prepare for it and we still crushed them. In '94 we had the Outland winner and Lombardi finalist. Not to mention numerous all-Americans on both sides of the ball
I didn't say anything about 94. It is telling that you resorted to talking about 94 when asked to name the players on the "greatest OL ever".
Saban, with a month to prepare with his Alabama teams, would have jail sex with Osbourne's teams.
Nebraska leads the country in Outland Trophy winners by a big margin and the 1995 team had one of those award winners.
Beating 5 teams that finished in the top 10 by an average score of 49–18.
Trailed only once all season, averaging 400 yards rushing per game while allowing only 78, scoring 51 rushing touchdowns while allowing only 6).
The team set Division 1-A records by averaging 7.0 yards per rushing attempt and also by allowing zero quarterback sacks on the season.
Noted for its strong special teams play, the team also connected on 13 of 16 field goal attempts.
Also tied an NCAA record by allowing only five punt returns (for a total of 12 yards) all season.
Averaged a victory margin of more than 38 points, the largest of any Division 1-A team since World War II, despite regularly resting their starters in the second halves of games.
Averaging more than 53 points per game (including the bowl win), the team averaged 29.8 points per first half - a higher number than the per-game scoring average of many national champions, even including such modern champions as the 2006 Florida Gators, the 2002 Ohio State Buckeyes, and the 1992 Alabama Crimson Tide.
The 1994 and 1995 Nebraska teams, which went a combined 25–0, remain the only undefeated and untied - as well as the only consensus - back-to-back national champions since Oklahoma in 1955 and 1956.
The 1995 Cornhuskers were also recently named by Playboy Magazine as the greatest college football team of the Playboy era (since 1957)
THAT IS WHAT PERFECTION AT THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL LEVEL LOOKS LIKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
you sound like a 75 year old bammer talking about how the bears teams would destroy any team out here today....its just dumb and nebraska fans are the only ones that will agree with you
Pretty sure someone ITT said yesterday that 95 Nebraska wouldn't score a point on '11 Bama. How funny is that? It would be a great game I'm sure of it. We're all gonna stick to our sides. This is a dead issue
Cut and paste all the shit that you want, but the bottom line is that the game has evolved and those Neb teams would lose to the great teams of today.
In your opinion, why is it that the I-form option is virtually non-existent today?
not sure you are following me...my post referred to the idea of a team of old (bryants teams, 95 nebraska) being untouchable by current teams (2011 bama) being completely tarded out
not the other way around
Ok you tell me what makes teams today that much better? Our starting DTs were both 300 pounds. Our ends were 260-275. Our LBs weren't as big but were with weight room it didn't matter. Do you really not think that we wouldn't have evolved physically had we still been running the option today? We would have adapted on both sides
They aren't untouchable. Do you really think Bama today would just run over 95 Nebraska? That team had the strength and speed to keep up with today's game. And the option would still be effective.
IDWIW, chances are you are arguing with young adults who were likely 5 years old in 1995. Either that or they didn't have a TV in Alabama yet.
LMAOOOO the 01 U team would wipe the floor against that trash option, ask eric crouch about trying to run an option against a bunch of 1st round NFL draft picks..

again, i think maybe you are quoting the wrong guy...has nothing to do with what i posted
No way, you can't be one dimensional and beat Bama
This is one of the reasons FSU always owned Nebraska and teams like them during their run
The size and speed of the south is a different animal, you got lucky by playing a UF team that was a year away from its best team ever
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
94 PSU was def better, you give Scary Jerry a month to prepare for a game it's curtains..
I still remember Herby crying like a little girl when the '95 team beat out whatever year USC team in the awesome challenge thing.
Right now I think It is OU, Neb, Bama, FSU. If Bama wins this year they jump in front of us and probably OU. I think it is IMPOSSIBLE to compare teams from different eras. The '95 Nebraska team was easily the best of that decade but there is no way to know how they would do against Bama teams now. To say one of the best offenses of all time wouldn't move the ball is ridiculous though.
Nebraska would have crushed any current Alabama team in their current dynasty run. Only young fools that didn't watch Nebraska literally destroy the world of college football would say otherwise. Even some big name folks in Alabama have said Nebraska would have steamrolled the Alabama teams of today.
hey...we wouldnt be trotting nick sabans junior football camp players out there....
GTFO with that PSU being the better team. They weren't voted the champs so it doesn't matter.
01 U would dominate that Nebraska team, if you don't think other wise you're a homer..
Ya, and our coaches weren't very good..
They got screwed big-time they would dominate teams in the first 3 quarters and then Jopa wouldn't run up the score and it cost him..
We recruited a lot of size and speed from the south in those days. Frazier was from Florida. Oh look he broke another tackle. There is no way to know what Florida in 96 would have done against 95 Braska. We crushed them the year before when everyone and their dog said we would get crushed by that Florida speed. Look what happened. You need to get over your Florida speed being better routine. It's tired
I would say that team and 1995 Nebraska are the two best teams ever since the 1980 season. It would have been an interesting game to watch. Put both of those teams on the field at the same time and you have an NFL roster. That is how good those two teams were.
Bama would destroy 01' U.
Players are just too fast, big and strong now
