07:30 AM ET 02.03 | For Jameis Winston and Florida State, the memories of a BCS win remain fresh. Winston and his teammates were honored at Doak Campbell Stadium Saturday during a celebration of the national title win. "When you're on the field, you really don't take it that serious, that's what we do. But seeing it again, we were ecstatic," Winston said. ... Throughout the season, [Jimbo Fisher] was quick to deflect any questions about where his team ranked compared to past FSU squads. But he was surprisingly reflective and bold throughout his speech to fans. "To me, this team dominated maybe like no other team in college football history," Fisher said while standing on a stage at midfield. "... We're one of the great teams in Florida State history, but I think they've become one of the great teams overall."

Neaux.....good team - yes

Perhaps dominating the ACC and various FCS teams....but Aubie had more yds and FSU didn't lead until the last 1:19....not dominating at all

Would agree. They are a great team but I did not think to put them in that rarefied, ethereal atmosphere. ACC was not a tough conference, FL sucked, they were really not tested until Aubie and as you said were behind and outplayed until the final minute.

USC 2004

Perhaps they're the best team...of 2013.

They also really didn't dominate the BC game IMHO.

10 years ago ESPN was promoting USC as the best ever ... they even created a highlight video with a "best ever" jingle playing in the background.

To bad that their QB does not go swimming with some gators. If that was my daughter he would be gator poop.

I wouldn't read too much into Fisher's comments. He was addressing the hometown fans at a celebration. Can't expect him to say, "well, we were pretty good, but so was the other guy".

Hype and nothing more, this FSU team isn't even in the debate. The USC's 2003-04 teams aren't even the best USC teams ever (1972 USC is considered by many as the best team ever).

Nebraska in 1971, that 1972 USC team and the Bud Wilkonson teams that won 47 straight in the 1950's were probably the best ever, but due to lack of sport history by too many writers, we end up with this type of hype over the best teams from the past 2 decades.

doubtful. Might not even be the best FSU team.

We weren't "tested" until Aubie because we slaughtered everyone we played. Dominance.

...don't know where this, "they didn't lead til the final minute" junk is coming from. Did you guys WATCH the second half?

Only team in CFB history to beat the point spread in every regular season game. That's not hype. That's a fact.

If your daughter went by the name "cleatchaser," maybe you wouldn't be so quick to judge.

I am not saying that the 2013 'Noles were the GOAT. Not for me to decide. We did, however, have an unprecedented season of dominance, and were, without question, one of the best of the BCS era.

I believe the comment was that you didn't lead in total offence (yards gained) until the final 1:19. Not sure if this is an accurate comment and too lazy to google it.......
