Many of college football's best teams are driven by their stars, but the truly transcendent teams are more than just one big-name player.
Oregon has a top-flight Heisman candidate in quarterback Marcus Mariota but also has a defense laden with talent that few pundits are talking about. Florida State is in an identical situation, as sensational freshman quarterback Jameis Winston steals all the headlines in Tallahassee.
Meanwhile, many of these well-known players in power conferences outshine players who are doing big things in small conferences.
In the end, an excess of players are underappreciated despite enormous production. We call those players "underrated."
