I agree, but Sean T lays out Reggie, Vince gets Dorsey, McGahee breaks a tackle... a lot of variables. The '02 team would be the best team the '00 team played and could beat them. '02 team has a senior QB. '02 team has better CBs. '02 probably has a better DL and more seasoned special teams at kicker and punter.

Miami wins, but wasn’t the OU-FSU game played in rain? Assuming the same weather, in the rain, Canes by 10. Good weather, Canes by 20.

Didn’t a couple of those Buckeye DL play in the NFL? Will Smith was good for the Saints until he was killed in a road rage incident.

Yes, team lost leadership in 02. Free lancing by the defense almost lost to FSU, and allowed WVU to play close for three quarters. And don’t even mention the Rutgers game. Geez.

To be honest, I always felt good back then... too young, dumb and happy to know any better. All I'm saying is '02 has the best chance to beat '00 out of any team '00 played.
