Imagine Russell Wilson back in a Wisconsin jersey this spring, or Drew Brees back under center for Purdue.
That might be what it takes for the national title to be removed from the SEC's grasping fingers—and for fans of those programs, it might be a tempting proposition.
The 10 players on this list are the current NFL stars we would most like to see return to their college program.
Seeing Wilson back at Wisconsin or Ndamukong Suh back at Nebraska would be a nightmare for opponents, and would instantly propel said programs back toward the top of college football's elite.
Seeing these players in spring practice with college football players would also provide an opportunity to see how much of a difference there is between the college and pro player, a line which sometimes seems to get blurred.
While it's not going to happen, we can dream about these players returning for one more shot with their former programs.
