What do you mean I have no way of saying that? I just did. And it's true. If you're trying to say I can't prove it then yes, you are correct. I also can't prove that the 1999 FSU team is better than the 1974 FSU team, but I can assure you it's true.
That isnt even a good comparison. You cant compare teams from 25 years apart, especially with your program and the difference in that 25 years.
NIU earned their spot just as much as anyone else. They followed the rules, got matched up with you guys, and gave you a fight until the fourth quarter. You never could put them away until the fourth quarter.
lol We were dominating the stat sheet all game and it was NIU losing was inevitable and you could see it in the first quarter. FSU not putting the game away until the 4th was because of shooting themselves in the foot on 3rd downs in the first half. NIU had little to do with it. FSU dominated that game, just not on the scoreboard until the 4th.
Ok, I can't prove the 2012 FSU team is better than the 2005 FSU team that made the Orange Bowl as well....but I can assure you it's true.
And you know why NIU is a bigger joke than Clemson. People don't want to play NIU because it gains you nothing by beating them. Clemson doesn't have that same affect on people. You don't have to believe that last year's Clemson would beat this year's NIU, but that fact alone says why NIU is looked at as a bigger joke.
