  • Greatest OLs in CFB History

    It's simple folks, you don't win MNC's without a really good (not good, but really good) O-Line. That being said, I've always wondered which of the championship teams in history had the best set of big-uglies.

    I've only been watching CFB since the late 90's, so I personally see '01 Miami, '05 USC (even though they didn't win the MNC, this line was better than the '04), and '05 Texas as being the best of the best.

    Miami had Bryant McKinnie, Vernon Carey, & loads of NFL Talent. There was no way Ken Dorsey was gonna get his shirt dirty. I forget if they were a better pass blocking line or run blocking line, but either way they dominated.

    USC's '05 O-line had each of their linemen (Baker, Kalil, Lutui, Matua, Justice) named to an All American team by atleast one publication or another. They paved the way for 2 1,000 backs in one season. While Justice, Kalil, and Baker will be the three that got 1st round attention, I really think that the presence of Lutui and Matua made this the great run blocking team they were.

    Then you have Texas w/ Blalock, Scott, Allen, Sendlein, and Shields. Probably the best pass blocking line I've ever seen. Yea, even better than Miami. I'm impressed with the size of this line.

    What do you guys think?

    the 2000 michigan o-line had 2 first round picks (Hutchinson, Backus), and a 2nd rounder (Maurice Williams) in the same draft. Also had current NFLer Jonathan Goodwin and an honorable mention Big Ten in Dave Brandt.

      The '05 USC line had alot of NFL talent there with 4 eventual first day picks. But that Michigan line that was brought up to was stellar.

        The 05 Texas line had Jon Scott, Justin Blalock, Kasey Studdard, Tony Hills as a backup, and Lyle Sendlen at C (they also had a DL of Tim Crowder, Rod Wright, Larry Dibbles, Frank Okam, and Brian Robinson).

          The best UM OL (recently) was McKinnie, Romberg, Bibla and Joaquin Gonzalez and Sherko Haji-Rasouli. That USC OL is ridiculous though.

          That is correct comahan

            Although I'm drawing a blank I'm willing to bet that the best OL in college football history came before 2001.

              Has to be the winner. That was an amazing o-line.

                Those Nebraska Olines in the 90s were unreal, they didn't have much NFL talent though which won't give them much leverage in this debate.

                    Yeah the "black shirts" were dominate because they said they were.

                    I'm not sure about one of the best of All-Time but the 1994 PSU OLine was considered dominate at the time. It consisted of Jeff Hartings and Marco Rivera who combined for 5 Pro Bowls.

                        I'm not sure all the starters, but one of the OSU offensive lines in the mid-early 90's had Korey Stringer and Orlando Pace as bookend tackles. That was a truely dominant line...

                          You have to recognize the 97 team with LT Jon Jansen, LG Chris Zeimann, C Zach Adami, RG Steve Hutchinson, and RT Jeff Backus
