“Sleeping giant” is a term people love to throw around in the college football world.
Everyone kind of has their own definition for what a “sleeping giant” is, but it can basically be summed up like this: a college football program that, for whatever the reason, has yet to reach its full potential, a potential that is at a national title-level.
Who are the biggest sleeping giants in college football, then?
SB Nation’s Bill Connelly tweeted out this question this morning.

He didn’t himself give an answer. Other people responded, though. Here are the answers:
@SBN_BillC UNC UCF is a P5 starter kit but in P5 probably UNC but that’s 60% bc of schedule. I can’t believe I’m typing this but Miami?

@SBN_BillC Neb or Miami. I would say my AU Tigers but they never really sleep, they just nap from time to time. They’re waking up for ’16.

@SBN_BillC Houston or Colorado

@SBN_BillC Georgia should be way better. Top 5 HS FBall state and no in state rivals for the top crutes. They could be ‘Bama.
