The hype machine is being fueled as we speak, and it should be cleared for takeoff in the near future. As with many combustion engines, the hype machine tends to run extra vigorously when it has been freshly topped off.
The following is an alphabetical list of players, coaches and teams (in that order) that will be so over-hyped that some fans will be secretly wishing they lose a game or two just so they can stop hearing about them outside game day.
*Disclaimer: Over-hyped does not mean that the hype is incorrect. Some of these players, coaches or teams may turn out to be every bit as good as they are projecting, but it doesn't mean that everyone wants to hear about them nonstop for three months before kickoff.
