Which college football programs are in the best shape to maintain success moving forward? ESPN attempted to answer that question this week, using an interesting methodology. A panel of the network’s analysts – Heather Dinich, Brad Edwards, Travis Haney, Sharon Katz, Tom Luginbill, Ted Miller, Adam Rittenberg and Mark Schlabach – used five different metrics to answer the question.
Their top 25 – which is based on coaching, current talent, recruiting, title path and program foundation – was released Tuesday afternoon. Alabama, unsurprisingly, came out on top.
