I pick 96 UF because we were the first team to win the AP title with the #1 sos.

I wouldn't go with either of these since the top players weren't playing football then.

How could they be 'top players' when they weren't even playing the game?

Yep Bill Russell on the Dons.

I should have said...most impressive.

Even though they lost 2 games...perhaps 1992 Duke is the most impressive considering the expansion of the tourney.

Most dominant probably 1972 UCLA BB or USC FB - their margin of victory in the NCAA tournament is a record 30.3 points...and 29 points margin of victory in the football season...respectively.

uf wasnt wire to wire. they didn't open the season at #1 nor did they finish the regular season at #1.

they do have a very legit argument for best 1 loss champion of all time.

Psshh. They weren't even the best team. And no, them beating us in '02 and '03 is not a relevant argument.

This is #1 for me. A team that can be considered as one of the best of ALL-TIME.
