Remember when incoming freshmen were coddled and treated like kids by coaches?
Those days are gone. 2012 was "The Year of the Freshman."
One freshman even broke the barrier and hauled in the 2012 Heisman.
Ten freshmen across the country dazzled us with their superb performances and wet our palettes for what lies ahead in the 2013 season.
Note: Both true freshmen and redshirt freshmen were eligible for this list.
