This list runs down the 20 teams from BCS conferences with the least hope for a successful 2012 season.
However, success is a broad term.
In the college football universe, making a bowl game might be considered a successful season for one program, while finishing with 10 or more wins may be a better measure of success for another.
Yet another team program might consider it a success to win more than two games.
For the purposes of this list, we will define success as having a winning regular season.
Even though bowl games look favorably upon .500 teams, this list does not.
My apologies if your favorite team made the list, but it's not looking good for them next season.
