Unpopular Opinion: 2006 Florida > 2006 LSU
Florida went 13-1, while LSU went 11-2. This included a 23-10 victory over LSU. Also, UF completely humiliated and embarrassed undefeated, #1 Ohio State. Both LSU and UF were incredibly talented and stocked with future NFL players, but UF had Urban Meyer and we had Les Miles. There’s no logical reason to believe LSU was better unless you’re wearing purple and gold glasses.

The National Title doesn't convince you enough?

I’m speaking to all the morons on here who insist 2006 LSU was the best team in college football that year, despite much evidence to the contrary.

I think most people bring up that team because they were playing as well as anyone at the end of the season but didn’t have the current playoff format to take advantage of. If we played UF at home or didn’t make costly mistakes in the swamp, that matchup could have been very different. Remember we had 4 first rounders and the #1 overall pick. No one had more talent than the 06 team.

Jimbo (and the zebras) cost us the Auburn game, and we made countless self-inflicted errors in the Swamp. Florida earned it in 2006, but that LSU team could beat any team in the country and were likely the most talented team in the country in 2006 along with USC. People forget USC completely blew a possible national title by losing to UCLA the last game of the season and then blew out top 5 Michigan in the Rose Bowl. We were initially slated to play Michigan in Pasadena until USC lost, wish we had. USC had a weird team. They blew out 5 top 25 teams but lost to Oregon St and UCLA.

We played them in the swamp and outgained them by forty yards and had 8 more first downs.

We had 5 turnovers, including a fumble on a first and goal qb sneak after a bull shite overturn of a Hester TD.

A lot of our errors were self inflicted. But we beat that Florida team 5 times out of ten at the swamp and 7 times out of ten on a neutral field. They just got us that day

Who on here is still bitching about 2006 ?
(I think this year's team kicking Florida and everyone else's arse erased any bad memories for a while. Especially those 15 years ago, but I guess props to Fla. from then ???)

LSU beats the brakes off of Florida if they play in Atlanta that year.

Though you can say the same thing about Georgia if they got a shot at depleted LSU in 2007.

That team was on fire by the end of the year, I don't think anyone would have beaten us then.

That 2006 LSU team would have done the same.

I e out gained florida in the swamp. Florida had us on turnover luck that day. Auburn had the beneficiary of some of the worst calls in football ive ever seen. The 2006 lsu team was very good, and 2006 just really didnt have a dominant team. Id say its close between lsu and florida that year.

For many reasons, watching Tebow highlights from Florida is nails on a chalkboard to me. Blows my mind how he was able to dominate college ball with that slow deliberate throwing motion. I know he was an athletic freak, but it's awful to watch.

At the End of the Year, I would venture to say, the 2006 LSU team was as dominant as Florida. And there were NO TEAM playing better than LSU was at the end of the year. Not even Florida.

You guys realize this is the stuff that drives us nuts, right? You win the head-to-head, have a better record, and win the national title, but people still want to argue the other team is better.

Just when we thought these cute little "unpopular opinion" threads had gone the way of "optics" and "narrative."

Sure, we all know Les Miles would never influence an offensive game plan. I recall that Auburn was very thin at linebacker and Les wanted to just play smash mouth all game long instead of letting Jamarcus throw the three future first round draft pick receivers.

Loved Jamarcus in college but man he did give up some big turnovers in big games

And like others have said. AU game AT AU was a sham. So was the game AT FL.
