90 UNLV
92 Duke
96 Kentucky

Those 3 teams I would put over them off the top of my head. The 3 best college teams that I've ever seen.

And ever is a strong statement when UCLA dominated the game for nearly a decade. Not to mention undefeated 76 Indiana, NC State with David Thompson, 82 UNC, Ewing at Georgetown, etc. Best single year team of the 2000s? Maybe. Have to see how the season plays out though.

Not yet. They gotta win the whole thing in order for them to be crown the best college team ever. Right now, they are freaking scary!!! They remind me of the 1990 Runnin Rebels out of UNLV. The Tar Heels have offense and defense and so much depth on the bench. Man, they have a 2nd team that is better than most schools starting five!!!

But like I said. In order to be the best team ever, they have to go all the way (Which they can if they stay focused). The Tar Heels are scary good.

JellyBean is right, they need to win the championship in order to even be considered. If they don't they may be last years Patriots, but they still can't be talked about in that class.

Heel fan here. As much as love this years UNC team, there have been many better teams that I've seen in the past 45 years. The UCLA teams from 1966-69 and from 72-73 were better. Indiana of 1976 would be tough also. Georgetown in '84 and UNLV of '90 would beat them. But the best team I've ever seen was the '84 Heels even though they laid an egg in the tourney that year. Michael Jordan, Kenny Smith, Brad Daughtery, and Sam Perkins all were very successful in the NBA and get my vote for the most talented college team of all time.

Yeah, that was probably the best collection of pure talent in college basketball in the last 25 years (or the most successful collection of talent) but that doesn't necessarily make them even the best UNC team of All Time. The fact that they did lay an egg in ACC and NCAA tournament (not even making it to the finals of the ACC tournament) losing to decent Duke and Indiana teams, who they clearly outclassed, cements this.

But how many of them are going to the Hall of Fame? Only one of them was even an All Star. It's quality over quantity. That Carolina team did end up having six NBA players.
