I'm trying to compae this team to the 1993 undefeated team. Does anyone have the starters on both offense and defense for that team?

jason miska(spelling?)--he was like The Boz, only cooler.
I think some guy named Frank Sanders was pretty good that year too.

well, if I had to compare

WR - Frank Sanders and Thomas Bailey.  I think we have faster WR's now, and Courtney Taylor could eventually be as good as Sanders - but man, Sanders was SO good in college.  I think our WR as a unit in '04 is better.

TE - Andy Fuller vs. Cooper Wallace - I'd go Fuller

OL - Redman, Anderson, Roubique, Taylor, and Gandy.  Gandy and Anderson both went on to productive NFL careers.  Just like I expect McNeil and Reddick to.  Roubique is VERY similar to Ingle . .I "think" probably that Lindsey and Grubbs have an edge on Taylor and Redman

QB - Stan White - so eariely similar to JC its crazy . .draw

FB - Richardson - multi time NFL all-pro - advantage . .1993

RB - Bostic . .AND Stephen Davis .. not to mention that Harold Morrow was on that team, so FOUR NFL Running Backs on this team . .WOW . . Carnell and Ronnie will hopefully have careers as successful as Davis. .advantage . .'04

PK - Etheridge . . advantage '03

Defense - Whitehead, Primus, Hart, and Walker - Whitehead and Walker both in the middle of succesful NFL careers.  Out of our starters, Ratliff and Jackson have the best chance of NFL careers - of course, even though they are not starters, McClover and Groves are future NFLers . .advantage '04

LB - Soloman, MIska, and Harris - Miska was nasty that year, but mainly b/c he was overlooked.  He was useless in 1994.  I think that LB's for this team as compared to this year are pretty similar, but I'll give the advantage to Williams, Williams, and Sears . .

CB - Jackson and McGee vs. Rogers and Pitts . . man, can I have a CB duo of Rogers and Jackson .  . wow.  advantage '04

Safeties - Shelling and Robinson . .my God we had a good secondary back then, 3 NFL Players (Jackson, Shelling and Robinson) . .advantage 93

Punter-  terry daniel . ..93

So I give 1993:  TE, FB, PK, P, Saftiees
2004:  WR, RB, OL, DL, LB, CB
Draw:  QB

1993 was my first year also.

Craig was a freshman in '93?  He must have been redshirting . .I know he was a senior in 1997 . .

'04 is my first year here.  I'm thinking that's a good omen for the same result

Craig did redshirt in '93.

That '93 team had a few players that were freshmen when I was a senior...Stan White, Wayne Gandy and Tony Richardson played quite a bit in '90.  It was satisfying, yet frustrating at the same time, to be in Texas in 1993...no television + pre-Internet boom = watch the highlights on ESPN.

I disagree with ya on the punter.Terry Daniel had a few long punt's that made him famous and he was a good punter,but his senior year wasn't great,as I recall.He put on a lot of extra unnessary weight which I think hurt him.I think the main job to be a great punter is to pin them deep,which I think Bliss is doing a better job of.
