    I take the LSU team. That team was loaded on both sides of the ball. Burrow much better than Jones.

    Okay but really, how different was this Bama team from last year, personnel-wise?

    I think Bama this year was among the all-time greats, but let's be real about how much COVID effed up the season, with players and coaches held out, thin rosters, lack of prep, no/small crowds, etc. I'm not saying this year shouldn't count for the record books, but there are more than a few asterisks here.

    Two different things. Covid year

    2019 LSU team 15-0
    Beat this current 2020 Alamaba team with Harris and Smith and most of the current players.
    Beat 7 ranked teams
    Clemson
    Florida
    Alabama
    Georgia
    Texas
    A&M
    Auburn
    Beat every team behind them #2, #3,#4, #5 to prove they were the best.

    2020 Alamaba 13-0
    Beat 5 ranked teams
    A&M
    ND
    Florida
    Georgia
    OSU
    **they beat LSU but that team was a shell of the 2019 team.
    They caught a few breaks too.

    1. Avoided the 1 team that gives them trouble and has a recipe to beat them Clemson
    2. Plays Georgia with Stetson Bennett and several key players out.
    3. Playes Florida during their end of the year losing streak (slump)
    4. Playes ND after they got distroyed by Clemson on a losing streak.
    5. Lucky draw getting OSU not Clemson in the Championship game. OSU fields has been a bit erratic good game bad game. He had a good game against Clemson choked against Alabama. That's how it's been with him.

    Bottom line LSU didn't deal with covid and teams not being able to practice and opponents personnel issues. They beat both Alabama and Clemson the top two dogs in college football. 14 players drafted 20 total went to the NFL from that team.

    Conclusion: LSU greatest team ever.

    LSU last year greatest team ever? I wouldn't go that far. But yes they belong in the discussion.

    Getting back to OPs question:
    LSU
    Because I hate Bama and all I care about is how I feel about stuff.

    By the end, maybe, but there were jitters throughout that year. What we really needed to see was the 2005 offense paired with the 2008 defense.

    This bama front seven wasn’t as stout as sabans other defenses. Think LSU clearly superior

    At the end of the 2008 season, on the Mike and Mike show, Greenberg asks Golic who the #1 team in the Country was. Without hesitation Golic says “USC”. Greenberg asks Golic “Why USC?”
    Golic says to Greenberg “That SC Defense is the greatest I’ve ever seen”
    High praise from a Domer.

    LSU hands down! They could bring it on both sides of the ball. Bama was vulnerable on several occasions
