'95 FSU is clearly our most epic game of all time. However

Like many of you, I was at the '90 Clemson game, the tortuous '90 GT game, as well as the '95 FSU game.

The thing about the Clemson game is that you sort of felt like we had control of that game. It was 20-7, and you just sensed we were going to win most of the time. The FSU game didn't quite have that same confidence. Their offense was SO good you just knew that they could put up points like crazy. So the uncertainty right to the very last moment (or last inch), is truly what makes that win the best ever. And you can't forget, people thought of FSU then the same way we think of Alabama now.

But despite the terrible GT loss, THAT was the game that had the greatest buzz I've ever witnessed here. The entire week there were media everywhere, and there just weren't as many games on TV then. Some of you might remember that the CBS game of the week was THE game, maybe the only game each week, that was televised to every part of the country. So that week, with us # 1 and all the attention placed upon it, was something the community I don't know has ever matched before or since.
