Pretty good list. Suprised Garret Hartley didn't make your list under the kickers. I also think Chris Wells deserves a spot in the RB's. Little suprised that Eric Crouch (Nebraska) didn't make the list. Pretty good accomplishments.

One of three quarterbacks in Division 1-A history to rush for 3,000 and pass for 4,000 yards in a career
13th player in NCAA to rush and pass for 1,000 in a season (1,115 rushing, 1,510 passing)
Nebraska career total offense leader with 7,915 yards
Former Nebraska single-season total offense leader with 2,688 yards
Former Nebraska single-game total offense record of 360 yards
Nebraska career total-offense touchdown leader with 88
Owns Nebraska career record for most rushing yards by a quarterback (3,434)
NCAA record for most career rushing TDs by a quarterback (59)
Most rushing attempts by a Husker quarterback (648)
Former Nebraska total TD passes in a game (5 vs. Iowa State)
Most rushing TDs in a game by a quarterback (4 vs. Kansas)
Set a QB record for most rushing TDs in a season (20)
Set school records in 2001 for most rushing attempts in a season for a QB (203)
Most total offense yards by a sophomore (2,158)
Tied an NCAA record by scoring a TD via run, pass, reception in the same game (vs. Cal, 1999)

That is a lot of work. At first glance, it appears to be a good list. I'd say the 45-35 game was a bit better than the 14-3 game overall.

Just curious, why do those two LSU games stick out more than the LSU-Florida game? Is it just because of the triple overtimes and LSU being so highly ranked against unranked teams? Not looking for a right, just interested why those were on there and not the Florida game.

What part of the Miami-Boston College game was so much better than that game? It was arguably the best game I've seen and hands down the best game I've seen in person.

The 14-3, 45-35, and Tech/UT game were all SUPERB! I was showing some love for other games.

The Kentucky/LSU and Ark/LSU games were epic, more so because LSU went on to "win" a BCS National Title, that same year.

Hey, if it were your list I'd assume you'd have Tech/UT in there! I couldn't question those choices! Excellent games! However, if you find some footage on the 2 LSU losses, you'll see that both games went into overtime, and both games were won by Kentucky and Arkansas. Then LSU still plays for a title, and wins!

Maybe the title should've been the "Top 10 Most Pivotal Games of 2000-2009"???

Not to throw more fuel on the fire, because I have to say even witha minor quibble here or there, it is some fine work, but the 39-33 game was a bit pivotal. Without that and the couple of key plays, Gideon/Crabtree/etc., the sips are very likely playing for a title that year.

1. Vince Young (Texas)
2. Tim Tebow (Florida)
3. Matt Leinart (USC)
4. Colt McCoy (Texas)
5. Carson Palmer (USC)
6. Sam Bradford (OU)

I'm thinking combo. of career, crystal balls, wins, and stats. Not sure where you were coming from. I might even put Leinart second. Two national titles, and one foot short of two crystal balls.

LMAO! Yah... I'm pretty sure Kentucky and Arkansas were shaking in their cleats, when they played LSU, too. What happened? 2 L's for LSU!

2007 West Virginia were potent as hell, with a healthy Pat White at the helm! USC was steam-rolling at the end of 2007! LSU would've had their hands full - and then some. Neither Kentucky nor Arkansas had offenses, even close to that of offenses from USC and WVU. USC's defense was beastly, too! How beastly? LSU's vaunted defense gave up 279 pts, while USC gave up 198 pts on defense.

Oklahoma = 4 undefeated NC seasons (1955, 1956, 1974, 2000)
LSU = 2 undefeated NC seasons (1908, 1958)

I'd say OU's "luck" is ahead of the curve, in regards to undefeated NC seasons!

And yes... Oklahoma is very good at winning Heisman Trophies. LSU = 1959 ala Year of the Great White Hype! Since 1959, OU = more Heisman Trophy winners and NC trophies, than LSU.

Neither Kentucky nor Arkansas had offenses, even close to that of offenses from USC and WVU. USC's defense was beastly, too! How beastly? LSU's vaunted defense gave up 279 pts, while USC gave up 198 pts on defense.

Heard it all before...

LSU has always struggled against potent offenses this decade..

Jason White finished 13-for-37 for 102 yards with two interceptions.

In 2007 when LSU won their title with 2 losses LSU beat 3 teams in TGO's Top 10 Teams of the decade...

1-Virginia Tech
2-Florida
3-Ohio State

When Oklahoma won their title (which was almost in the previous decade (lol) they beat one..

1-Texas

It is really funny :D

The guy makes "light" of LSU winning a title with two losses, while his team is a consistent loser of titles this decade-something evidently that pulls rank in ranking teams of the decade...

LSU should get a bump for winning a title with two losses...No one else has ever done it...

What the hell does losses have to do with anyting anyways? (lol)

Besides wondering why we don't have a playoff tourney, not much. But, if you consider that LSU was as useless as condom in Britney Spears' purse, before 2003... here's how they stack up...

Wins against Top 25 teams
Oklahoma - 39
LSU - 25

BCS NC appearances
Oklahoma - 4
LSU - 2

Undefeated BCS NC seasons
Oklahoma - 1
LSU - 0

AP Top 10 finishes
Oklahoma - 6
LSU - 5

Non-BCS Bowl game w/l
Oklahoma - 3-0
LSU - 3-2

Conference Titles
Oklahoma - 6
LSU - 3

Overall w/l
Oklahoma - 111-24 (82%)
LSU - 98-30 (77%)

You can say I was subjective about the ranking, all you want.... however I can present you these facts and say LSU playing for a 2007 BC NC was subjective, based on the need to put the SEC winner in the NC game.

Your argument hinges loosely on the graces of being given the opportunity (that USC/WVU didn't get) to beat the dog:Censor: out of OSU! If USC plays Ohio State (in 2007) and DESTROYS THEM, like we know they would've... you have absolutely NO argument, what-so-ever!

Dude, be thanking your lucky stars that Oklahoma, WVU, USC, or someone else wasn't given the chance to walk thru Ohio State, like we all know they would've. That's all you got! Outside of that... LSU brings nothing to the table to combat OU, for the decade.

In 2005 and 2006 LSU struggled to beat Arkansas (19-17 and 31-26), ultimately losing to them in 2007 and 2008. USC played Arkey-saw in 2005 and 2006 and beat their a$$ to a bloody pulp (70-17 and 50-14). Do you honestly think USC couldn't have beaten LSU in 2007? You must be the only fool who thinks that.

West Virginia this decade 86-39 and 5-4 in Bowl Games...

Georgia this decade 98-31 and 8-2 in Bowl Games

Pretty much explains it...:rolleyes:

I am very biased but I was wondering where Georgia was too. They have been very consistent. 2-1 in BCS games as well as 2 conference they also had 6 10 win seasons and had at least 8 wins in every year. Championships. I think a lot who saw the LSU-UGA game back in '03 would also rank that game as one of the best games of the decade.
I was looking for a David Green among the QB's as well as David Pollack at DE and a Knowshon at RB to go with Leonard Pope at T.E. One could make an argument that their 02 team could be in the back end of a top 10 in this decade.

Obviously I have no idea what your criteria is here. I'd go:

1. Vince Young (Texas)
2. Tim Tebow (Florida)
3. Matt Leinart (USC)
4. Colt McCoy (Texas)
5. Carson Palmer (USC)
6. Sam Bradford (OU)

I'm thinking combo. of career, crystal balls, wins, and stats. Not sure where you were coming from. I might even put Leinart second. Two national titles, and one foot short of two crystal balls.


This is not totally QB's, as it's all players...But not a bad list, I'd say..
