This might not be the best Oregon team this decade. Pretty far from the best team of the last 15 years.

Greatest team of the last 15 years? No. One of the best in the last 5-6 years? Definitely! But there's a big difference there isn't there?

Oregon has been on the rise for a while now, but I don't feel like they do in saying they got cheated out of any National Title bids. Alabama's run was greater than Oregon itself, FSU & Auburn last year, imo, were better teams.

That list goes on and there was a time, a while back where Oregon, while good, was far from great, where USC was dominating that conference.

Is Oregon the best team this season? I'll let you know after the National Championship game (because I think that will determine who the best team is) but they very well could be.

Throw in an undefeated Texas with Vince Young in 2005 too. They beat 2 of the best teams in the nation that year in Ohio State and the "unbeatable" undefeated USC, returning a Heisman QB in Leinart from 2004 and the Heisman winner in 2005.

Even 2004 Auburn who got screwed were better. They had 2 1st round RB's in Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown, a 1st round QB in Jason Campbell, a Burtkus winning LB in Dansby, and a 1st round CB in Carlos Rogers.

Oregon is somewhere middle of the pack in the last 15 years if they win. OSU would as well.

2010 Oregon was 30 second or a random run away from being able to beat 2010 Auburn. This Oregon team is vastly superior to that one. This team is better than 2010 Auburn and it isn't a question. Mariota this year is better than Cam Newton. Fairley is the only player Oregon isn't better at in almost every position.

Darron Thomas<<<<<<<<[insert ten more]Mariota
LaMike James>=Freeman
Kenjon Barner>=Tyner
Maehl<Devon Allen
2010 OL<<<2014's OL 1 player was drafted in the 5th from 2010's OL
Kiko (i think was suspended) and Jordan were only draftable players on 2010 team. Armstead Buckner are potential first round picks.

http://espn.go.com/blog/pac10/post/_/id/16916/coaches-all-pac-10-teams-announced

Oregon had 5 players on Pac-10 frist team in 2010. Let's break them down:
RB James>=Freeman
TE Paulson<<<<<Pharoah Brown/Evan Baylis (Paulson wouldn't play in fron of Oregon's current 3 TEs on roster.
C Jordan Holmes<<<<Hroniss Grasu (Grasu is top 3 C in the NFL draft (possibly) Holmes went undrafted, I beleive Grasu was an AA as well)
MLB Casey Matthews<< any LB Oreogn has. Matthews made plays but wasn't fast nor big, nor strong, nor quick.
CB Talmadge Jackson<<<Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (Ifo was an AA and up for Thorpe. Talmadge probably wouldn't be listed as a top Oregon player in 2010 but most fans on this site.)

Besides James no one is really close in the 2010 teams.

Their offense is definitely one of the best but as a team no.

Not at all. Fantastic offense, yes. But come on. Greatest team in 15 years? Absolutely not.

2001 Miami (the best team in the last 15 years)
2009 Alabama (overall, a fantastic team with a ton of talent in the NFL)
2011 Alabama (one of the best defenses in recent memory)
2012 Alabama (one of the best offensive lines in recent memory, great defense)
2006 Texas (Vince Young in college was the best, defense was awesome)
2006 USC (extremely talented roster. national champs if not for Vince Young)
2004 USC (another very talented roster)
2008 Florida (great offense with Tebow and Harvin, fantastic defense)
2013 FSU (fierce defense, great offense)

All of those teams immediately stand out off the top of my head.

You've gone too far now. And don't throw stats at me to try to prove he's better. The only person who you can even compare to what Cam did is Vince Young.

Mariota is not better than Cam Newton and no, this isn't the best team in the last 15 years. Doesn't even come to mind to be honest.

They're maybe the best one-loss team in the state of Oregon that past 15 years.
