LSU Tigers Football: Are They the Greatest Team Ever?

It has been a field of glory for the Bayou Bengals before. For sure...

But much more than that, for Louisianans, it is a sacred place.

It is Monday night, Jan. 9 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Chance of rain is...never!

And the LSU Tigers have just defeated their bitter SEC rival, the Alabama Crimson Tide, for the second time this season and in the midst of a blizzard of confetti, have hoisted the Waterford Crystal ball.  

The question now arises—unfortunately much like the sun will on some of the giddy revelers who mistook the BCS National Championship Game for Mardi Gras—is this LSU team the greatest of all-time?

This is not a question you are going to find on an LSAT. There is no definitive answer to these types of questions, and they are usually reserved for friendly debates at your local sports bar.

But, beware...some have been known to go quite awry at times.

I am going to provide you with some numbers and comparisons from the three college football teams that are widely considered to be the greatest of all time to allow for the debating to begin. And hopefully, this will be a peaceful process.

If you arrive back at your table to find that your draft beer appears a little different in shade, and your chicken wings are no longer tolerable, you can assume that someone did not agree with your opinion.
