In what can only be viewed as a slight to the worldwide leader, Fox Sports puts together a ranking of the greatest college football seasons based on some math-like substances. Their caveat says it all:
This is NOT a ranking of which teams were the best or most talented. This is a formula to find out which teams had the best seasons. Anything else is simply opinion.
Interesting to see that the 2004 Auburn Tigers rank above the 2004 Trojans. Also the 2003 LSU Tigers outrank the 2003 USC Trojans as well. I can already hear the collective outrage of the Pac 10 homers. We're guessing the formula didn't quantify "sophistication of offense".
