I'd have to at least flip your top two teams. We were great

in 2018, but that 2019 LSU squad was STACKED with NFL talent. But, if you could somehow have those two teams play a 10 game series, I think it would wind up in favor of 2019 LSU by about 6-4, maybe 7-3. I give them the edge because Joe (Punchable Face) Burrow was so adept at getting rid of the ball in a hurry, I don't think even the Power Rangers could have upset him enough for it to matter.

Nah I'm giving the edge to the best defensive line in college football history and Trayvon Mullen. Plus the 2018 offense had a better O-Line and Hunter Renfrow.

Mullen gets a pick six on Burrow and Renfrow does Renfrow things.

Not even close. It would have been a shoot out but Clemson would win because the Clemson defense would hold Burrows to under 30 points. Clemson's D line was just too good.

As good as that LSU team was, we played terrible and still could’ve won that game, up 10 at one point.

I dunno, in 2018 we had a defense that could

have slowed those jokers down better. As it was in 2019, we were in a tight ballgame with LSU until late in the 3rd quarter. We also were the 3rd best offense in America in 2018, so I think 2018 Clemson vs 2019 LSU would be a very hard one to call. But overall, we had a better offense and defense in 2018 than 2019, so along with my orange colored glasses I'd have to tip the scale to us. Alabama was touted as the best team ever in 2018 the way they ran through their schedule, and the way we demolished them was a thing of beauty. I'm gonna have to vote 2018 Clemson as #1 🙂

I agree. LSU gets the nod.***

Do you remember that 2018 team? Nobody compared to us, not even the "best team ever", Alabama.

I personally think the two Clemson teams that didn't win (2015 season & 2019 season) are still better than most of the teams on this list. Though the same could probably be said for two the Alabama teams that didn't win (2016 & 2018) either.

I did not realize until this that Bama was in 7 of the 8 championship games. The only one they were not in was 2014 Clemson vs LSU. lol

Numbers 3 and 4 need to be flipped imo. Otherwise spot on. We definitely are number 1 because that Bama team was unreal.
