The Big 8 was arguably the most dominant conference in the '80's but Nebraska did all their work a few years later while OU and Colorado were in the downside.
Alabama is doing theirs while the SEC is the most dominant.
I'd like to see a list of RB's from these NC teams.

Thank you! I hope we can continue making good things happen. As long as it stays fun, that is a key element. Keeping it fun, imo.

There is one major flaw within your dream world, Bama's run isn't over yet.

Auburn rushing yards: 296. Gus Malzahn has proven that he's already a better coach than Nick Saban and it's only his first year.
One day AJ McCarron might be as good of a QB as Neil Caudle.

Please allow me to present a brief counterargument on this point. Over the five year stretches under comparison, Nebraska played 22 games against teams that finished those seasons ranked in the top 25 in the AP Poll (4.4 per year), and 11 against teams that finished the season ranked in the top 10 (2.2 per year). Alabama played 23 games against teams that finished the season ranked in the top 25 (4.6 per year) and 13 against teams that finished the season ranked in the top 10 (2.6 per year).
Just looking at National Championship seasons, Nebraska played 12 games against teams who finished the season ranked in the top 25 (4 per year), and 8 against teams that finished in the top 10 (2.667 per year). Alabama played 13 games against teams that finished in the top 25 (4.333 per year) and 9 against teams that finished in the top 10 (3 per year).
I’d imagine this is probably due to the fact that Nebraska couldn’t play in a Conference Championship Game until 1996, depriving them of one quality game in each of the 1993, 1994 and 1995 seasons. (However, knowing that a conference championship game is a potential schedule-strengthener for an MNC run would likely impact choice of non-conference opponents in the regular season.) By comparison, a one-point loss to Florida in the 1994 SEC Championship Game is all that prevented Alabama from joining Nebraska and Penn State as undefeated at the end of the regular season, and another loss to Florida in the 2008 SEC Championship Game was the only thing that prevented Alabama from playing Oklahoma for the National Championship that year.
In addition, the lack of a BCS National Championship Game prior to 1999 (after the 1998 season) deprived Nebraska of the opportunity of playing undefeated Penn State in 1994 and undefeated Michigan in 1997, resulting in Nebraska not actually winning the AP National Championship in 1997. (For what it’s worth, I agree with Scott Frost and believe that Nebraska would have thoroughly dominated Michigan, and personally consider Nebraska to be the National Champion in 1997.)
To respond to Robsa, when looking at “National Championship Games,” Nebraska beat Miami by 7 after the 1994 season, beat Florida by 38 after the 1995 season, and beat Tennessee by 25 after the 1997 season. Alabama beat Texas by 16 after the 2009 season, LSU by 21 after the 2011 season and Notre Dame by 28 after the 2012 season. When Nebraska beat Tennessee for a share of the 1997 National Championship, SEC teams had won 2 National Championships in the past 17 seasons (Alabama in 1992, Florida in 1996), comparable to the rest of Nebraska’s conference slate (Oklahoma in 1985, Colorado in 1990). As I’m sure you’re all well aware, SEC teams have currently won 7 consecutive, so beating an SEC Champion today has a very different connotation than it did in 1997, or even in 2005 (the last time a non-SEC team beat the SEC champ in a bowl game).
If you’re asking for opinions, I do believe that the Nebraska team during the specified period was a “stronger” dynasty than the current Alabama run, for many of the reasons specified, but I am absolutely overjoyed to be having this conversation. As Robsa pointed out, we don’t know yet whether Alabama’s run is over. Considering the seasons that Nebraska had in 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2003, I hope that a 11-year comparison will generate this much analysis and discussion come 2018.
