How can a list of best teams ever not include the Trojans???? SoCalLifer Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 11 Likes Received: 18 May 22, 2017 #1 ESPN has really stepped in it now. They have an article "Which are the best college football teams ever at powerhouse programs?" I click on it to see where the 1972 and 2004 teams stack up compared to the others. To my dismay, they don't even include USC in the list of teams that does include Washington and Oregon???? To add insult to injury, Alabama's second best team of all time lost to SC in 1978!!! I can not believe they did not include the Trojans.
