    I respectfully disagree, as the 1972 team is the greatest in school history. I would put 72' against any team in college football history...

    Too many close wins in 2005. That team made me nervous long before the Rose Bowl game.

    I'd throw the 79 Trojans up against anyone.

    [​IMG] Years ago there was a book by the Sporting News if I'm not mistaken and it listed their top 25 teams of all-time. The '72 team was way up there near the best of all-time.

    2005 might have been our greatest offense ever but the D sucked.

    The 1972 team is definitely the best team ever in college football history. It was amazing. It ended up in having 39 of its players in NFL. It set a benchmark in terms of offense, defense, coaching, etc. Both defense and offense were taking the field in every play with authority. I have not seen anything like it in college football. It was like the Steelers' 1970s teams.

    Definitely the 1972 team was the best USC team of all time. Only one team (Stanford) came within 10 points; I believe they lost by 9. The 2005 team had the best offense but the D was nothing special. Losing Lofa Tatupu, Eric Wright, and Manuel Wright before the 2005 season put the D in a hole it could not recover from

    72 team absolutely the best of all time. The Stanford game was close only in points due to a late touchdown. SC was never in danger of losing. After the game Stanford coach John Ralston made a statement to the effect that Stanford could've, should've beatent SC. To which Coach John McKay replied “I'd like to have beaten them by 2,000 points" After a Ralston reply McKay said (if my memory serves me right) "I won't get into a pissing contest with a skunk". That year USC dominated every team they played, on both sides of the ball, with no close calls. I believe they averaged almost 40 points per game (that's in 1972 folks).

    I'll go with '72, but '74 was pretty strong, as well.

    I agree on ‘72 team. Best SC team I ever saw. Dominated all phases of the game, especially defense. Great O-Line and very efficient offense.
