Well apparently you got the whole SEC bias thing going here but you have got to be kidding! There is no way in the world that the '61 Crimson Tide could've beaten the '95 Nebraska team or the '01 Miami team.
I think the '61 Alabama team is a lame pick considering how dominate '95 N ebraska and '01 Miami were. In my opinion the 1995 Nebraska team is the greatest of all time with the 2001 Miami Hurricanes at a very close 2nd greatest.
To be honest '61 Alabama doesn't even crack my top 5.
