The biggest difference between the 01 and the current team is how the 01 team progressed over the season. They didn't start off amazing, but by Feb and March they were dominating. Our current team, against poor Pac 12 competition, has not been that great. Yes we have won. But we're showing little signs of improvement. We're wildly inconsistent within games. But because we have shown we can win, I do think this current team can beat the 01 team, but they would not be favored. I also think the game would be fairly close.
And this is all hypothetical anyways Stat. There's no need to be "bug[ged]" by others' opinions. Our current team has not faced a lineup nearly as athletic as the 01 team. And the one team we faced with as much pro talent (UCLA), we got killed by. And mind you the 01 team did not just have pro talent... they showed it too.
Finally the 01 team was simply electrifying. I never saw Elliot and Kerr play so I don't know about that squad. But I do know if the 01 team had another year together... it could have been really special (nothings ever guaranteed of course)
