With the NCAA Tournament coming to a close next week, we can now turn our attention to the upcoming 2016 college football season.
Last year was a fun one, with the Alabama Crimson Tide wrapping up the season by pulling out an exciting victory over Clemson in the College Football Playoff Final, bringing home the program’s 16th title.
But each season has its own identity, and that’s what makes it our favorite sport.
This time around, expectations are as high as ever for a program like Clemson to make another run at the playoff. Florida State, with a much more experienced roster returning this fall, is expected to make a push in the ACC. And Ohio State, despite losing a large amount of talent to the 2016 NFL Draft, is still in position to regain control of the Big Ten. However, none of this is guaranteed.
So, let’s take a moment to predict the teams that will likely be overrated heading into the 2016 college football season. These are the teams that, with maybe too much excitement surrounding their day-to-day, are being forced to face impossible expectations. Success takes time – people just don’t have the patience for it. This doesn’t mean these teams won’t be good or fun to watch, it just means they may not be as successful as many expect.
