I saw a question on yahoo and it was asking if a High Powered College Team could beat the Detroit Lions.

Someone answered yes, and they said the 2001 Miami Hurricanes could beat the Lions.

here's some of the big names on the 2001 Miami Hurricanes Roster...my jaw dropped about 10 feet when I saw who was on that roster.



Offense
WR Andre Johnson
WR Roscoe Parrish
RB Clinton Portis
RB Willis McGahee
RB Frank Gore
TE Jeremy Shockey
TE Kevin Everett
TE Kellen Winslow
G Bryant McKinnie

Defense
CB Antrelle Rolle
CB Mike Rumph
LB DJ Williams
S Ed Reed
S Sean Taylor
CB Phillip Buchanon
LB Jonathan Vilma
DL Vince Wilfork
DL Jerome McDougle


that's just about everyone's dreamteam fantasy NFL football team right there.

just wondering what other High Powered College Teams could beat the Lions?

If you put that Cane team against the Lions today they'd abuse the Lions, but put them in 2001, the Gators or Sooners of 08 against them and they'd get abused.

I just can't buy into the notion that a college team can beat even the worst NFL teams, especially with the gimmicky systems being run on the college level.......

No current College Team could beat the Lions, as bad as the Lions are, they are also a pro team, and they have actually been in some games against some tough teams, big leap from college to pro, thats why they call it the Pros.

I think any Canadian team could beat the Lions.
