Just hours after the LSU came from behind to take down Clemson in the national championship game on Monday night, the discussion about the Tigers having the best team ever has been a major talking point.

Burrow backed up J.T. Barrett and Dwayne Haskins at Ohio State before transferring to LSU for his final two seasons in Columbus.
The Heisman victor completed 31-of-49 passes for 463 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in leading LSU to its first national championship since 2007.

The Cincinnati Bengals hold the first pick and are in the market for a franchise quarterback after a dismal 2-14 season.More news: New York Giants interviewing Jason Garrett for offensive coordinator position
The 23-year-old's performance on the night saw him set the FBS single-season record for touchdowns with 65, adding to his first-placed 5,671 passing yards on the year.
The possibility of endorsement deals, which were forbidden for college players during Burrow's time at LSU, will vastly increase his earning potential at the professional level.
