Though the 2013 season may seem like a lifetime away, in reality the potential glory and ugliness of “next year” is a mere nine months in the future.
Seriously, if appropriate parties were to get started during the bowl season, they could have a bun in and then out of the oven before the next college football campaign kicks off.
Regardless of any discussion of continuing the human race during the offseason, all committed fans of the institutional gridiron game are well familiar with the hope associated with the dawning of a new campaign.
But, the flip side of this great optimism, especially when your team finishes its previous season ranked among the best in the land, is that everything can suddenly and tragically turn to crap.
The following slideshow draws on this angst and pinpoints every BCS Top 25 team’s worst nightmare for the 2013 season.
This is the kind of list that is part therapy, part low-budget horror film and part joy (at least for the opposing fans of the teams so mentioned).
Happy Yule Log.
