The nation's record holder for career rushing touchdowns, best offensive lineman and best linebacker to ever have a fake girlfriend have all left college football to play on Sundays.
This list is about the players that must fill that void.
Though it's doubtful that any Notre Dame linebackers will come up with a story that approaches anything Manti Te'o is going through right now, if the Irish are going to stay near the top of college football's elite, his replacement is going to need to play out of his mind.
But he's not alone.
The players on this list must fill holes left by departing legends who take with them tons of experience, loads of hardware and even some major records.
Not to mention the biggest "hoax" to hit the market in quite some time.
