if i got to assemble a ND team to play with i'd go with this. yes i took randy moss, he signed with ND so im counting him as a player (i hope thats legal). The big reason i took BQ as my QB was because i think he's probbly the best leader even though JC's skills of a passer are much better. also i had a hard time picking a DE opposite JT. it came down to either bert berry, frank stams or devon mcdonald. not sure why i picked BB but i just can't get his '96 season out of my head.

Why would anyone switch Montana for Quinn? Quinn's stats in college are light years better than Montana


This does not have anything to do with stats IMO. Sure Quinn took almost every passing stat there is in ND but did you ever see Quinn actually pick up that huge win? Montana led how many great comebacks and not to mention destroyed USC and Texas in the 77 national championship year.

Holy cow talk about a difficult discussion. I can't even begin to classify who's the best at any position at Notre Dame. There are just way too many great players who've gone to school here and trying to sort out who was better than who could take a lifetime or at least my lifetime lol. Its a really tough problem that we have here, not, and I suppose 99% of other schools would love to have had just a fraction of the talent and great players we've been blessed with all these years. To be honest its like trying to decide between your children and which one you love more, it can't be done. I started trying to make my own list off the top of my head, then started looking through other resources and realized that I'd forgotten so many greats who deserve just as much recognition if not more than my original picks. In the end I'll resign myself to the fact that our all time greatest team, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th could easily surpass the ability and achievements of most other schools and theirs.
