Default The best college team ever

With all the recent hype of USC being the best college, I thought I'd bring up the roster of the 2001 Miami Hurricanes. Their team could legitimately have beaten the worst NFL teams of the time, here's a look at their roster and where those players are at now:
QB
Ken Dorsey (Jr.) - now on 49ers (drafted 7.27 in 2002)
RB
Clinton Portis (Jr.) - star RB for Redskins (drafted 2.19 in 2002)
Willis McGahee (R-Fr.) - star RB for Bills (drafted 1.23 in 2003)
Najeh Davenport (Sr.) - FB/RB for Packers (drafted 4.37 in 2002)
Frank Gore (Fr.) - RB for 49ers (drafted 3.1 in 2005)
Jarrett Payton (So.) - RB for Titans (undrafted)
Quadtrine Hill (Fr.) - still at the U
WR
Andre Johnson (So.) - star WR for Texans (drafted 1.3 in 2003)
Roscoe Parrish (Fr.) - WR for Bills (drafted 2.23 in 2005)
Kellen Winslow (Fr.) - now a TE for Browns (drafted 1.6 in 2004)
TE
Jeremy Shockey (Jr.) - star TE for Giants (drafted 1.14 in 2002)
OL
Vernon Carey (So.) - RT for Dolphins (drafted 1.19 in 2004)
Martin Bibla (Sr.) - FA OL in NFL
Joaquin Gonzalez (Sr.) - FA OL in NFL
Bryant McKinnie (Sr.) - RT for Vikings (drafted 1.7 in 2002)
DL
Vince Wilfork (Fr.) - DT for Patriots (drafted 1.21 in 2004)
William Joseph (Jr.) - DT for Giants (drafted 1.25 in 2003)
Jerome McDougle (Jr.) - DE for Eagles
Jamaal Green (Jr.) - DE for Eagles
Orien Harris (Fr.) - DT still at the U coming out this year
LB
D.J. Williams (So.) - star LB for Broncos (drafted 1.17 in 2004)
Jonathan Vilma (So.) - star LB for Jets (drafted 1.12 in 2004)
Darrell McClover (So.) - LB for Jets (drafted 7.12 in 2004)
Roger McIntosh (Fr.) - LB still at the U coming out this year
Leon Williams (Fr.) - LB still at the U coming out this year
DB
Ed Reed (Sr.) - star SS for Ravens (drafted 1.24 in 2002)
Sean Taylor (Fr.) - star FS for Redskins (drafted 1.5 in 2004)
Antrel Rolle (Fr.) - CB for Cardinals (drafted 1.8 in 2005)
Philip Buchanon (Jr.) - CB for Texans (drafted 1.17 in 2002)
Mike Rumph (Sr.) - FS for 49ers (drafted 1.27)
Kelly Jennings (Fr.) - CB still at the U coming out this year
Marcus Maxey (Fr.) - CB still at the U coming out this year

This is a pretty stout roster and it is no wonder they romped thru the season that year and the next season until the national championship gamea against Ohio St., plus they had just lost James Jackson (RB for Browns), Santana Moss (star WR for Redskins), Reggie Wayne (star WR for Colts), Dan Morgan (MLB for Panthers) the previous year. Just wanted to point this out that this was clearly a better team than USC this year.

I was looking back at their roster the other day. I can't believe how stacked that roster is.

Great talent. I do not think I enjoyed watching a unit as much as the 1994 Penn State offense. They were amazing that year.

You have McGahee as the third pick in the draft, he was drafted somewhere around #20.

Great team though

My bad, it was supposed to be 1.23 for McGahee, it's fixed now.

a lot of those guys really didn't play that much though. sean taylor didn't really see the field as james lewis was the other safety (drafted by the colts but i don't think he is still in the league), neither did roscoe or winslow since the other recievers were daryl jones who played for the giants a few seasons and ethnic sands and kevin beard. vernon carey didn't start either and vince wilfork was the fourth dt in the rotation. i still think it is a toss up between 95 nebraska and this miami team even though miami has the talent edge.

No doubt lots of pro talent on that team, but I think too often people think of what players do or did in the NFL when they talk of college teams and college players. What these players do when they turn pro should have no bearing on what they did while in college. That being said, that was a hell of a team Miami had.

'01 Miami has my vote. BTW, this season's Alabama defense is the best college defense I have ever seen. Granted, I only saw them for a while in the Cotton Bowl, but I was very impressed. Their offense however...

No USC Defense would have gotten better penetration and Seattle's pro bowler would have been roaming the middle as LB.

Plus, less experience for the Trojans that stayed in school. One of USCs better corners is a 06 freshman, the one that knocked away a perfect corner of the endzone pass by Vince.
