The elite 8

January 2006
Sporting News;1/20/2006, Vol. 230 Issue 3, p30
The article analyzes the performance of several college football teams in the U.S. The Miami University team in 2001 featured 11 2002 draft picks--including five in the first round. Southern California in 2004 was a frightening blend of offense--led by Heisman award winner Matt Leinart--and defense that ranks among the best ever. Vince Young was the ultimate one-man gang of Texas in 2005 and was backed by an underrated defense. The best defense among the cast of BCS champions was of Louisiana State University in 2003.
