7 year parameter puts fsu on top for me...8 losses in 7 years...top 4 every year...2 national titles...5 national champ games..
Forgot 2 heisman winners...
USC hosts the largest Book Festival in the country...because, Californian's read more than any other state in country, per capita. 100,000 people had no problem showing up in Compton to enjoy culture and literature.
USC's beautiful and historic University Park campus is a great destination for visitors to Los Angeles. This video offers a preview of what's in store when you come to campus -- classic architecture, park-like grounds, museums, cafés, entertainment and more.

Are you kidding?
How about FSU 1993-2000? They won 2 NCs, played in 5 NC games, and finished top 5 every single year...and didn't get hit with sanctions for cheating while they did it.
How was USC 02-08 even remotely close to that?
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
The U had the most pervasive drug and thug culture during your successful run, no one can touch it. It's like comparing drops of water to a vast ocean.
Link works better

I vacationed in Cleveland earlier this summer. Tribe/Reds and Put-in-Bay, probably good you don't know about it, it's too crowded as it is.
Didn't read thread...Lol but I understand
Bobby Bowden's golden yrs shouldve produced way more than 2 NC's, but still..
Bowden's best yrs >>>>> Pete's, Sabans, Spurrier etc. And thats not a knock on anybody. FSU was just better than everybody else.
Miami was loaded in '01, but FSU had some crazy recruiting classes back then.
I lol at all these "best recruiting class ever" remarks nowadays. Bowden's squads were top to bottom deep and full of quality players, during his prime.
ACC wasnt weak in the 90s....but you are right though...wen you know more about teams you can make some good arguments... Didnt know about the 7pts record... that is pretty cool...
In the '60s USC was NC in '62 and '67 finished second in '68 ties Alabama for NC's and they didn't finish in the top 5 any other year.
In the '70s USC was NC in '72-'74 and '78 finishing second in '79. That trumps anything OU, OSU and UM did in that decade.
Looks like another perfect day.
Couple of coaching mistakes on his part... but I love being from Florida because our schools have dominated college football for 30 years...
How can you put Michigan among those 70 teams over USC? Or ANY of those other teams over USC?
Our 72 team was the greatest team of that decade, we won at least a share of the MNC in 74 and 78 and our 79 team came within one bad half against Stanford 21-21 tie after leading 21-0
I would put Oklahoma up way higher than OSU and Michigan and maybe even Bama. We split the 78 Title with them, despite beating them in Birmingham
But I believe we were something like 6-0 in Rose Bowls and OSU was 1-4 and Michigan was 0-5
USC was silly, such short memories we have now a days.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
IMHO, Miami from 86-92 was the best seven year run.
3 national titles
5-2 in bowls with wins over Texas, Nebraska, Alabama, and Oklahoma
2 Heisman winners
No, whats silly is trying to compare Pete C's run at USC to Bowden's prime yrs @ FSU.
Was his prime years in the 00's?
Rock puts them over the top.
Do I strike you as the type of guy to ask serious questions?

FBS Football Championship History at NCAA.com
His teams did finish in the top 5 every year from 1987-2000.
Worst season in that 14 yr stretch was 10-2. FSU had a 10-2 record in '89, '90, '95.
Dude was talking about the last decade and somehow we've veered off into the whole of last century.
