It would seem prudent for fans to take a "no news is good news" approach to the college football offseason, as games cannot be won but players can transfer or run into other issues.
In fact, aside from recruiting, rarely does anything positive happen between January and August. Sure, teams are often reported to be "coming together" and you always hope that guys will stay healthy, but those things are sort of expected. You don't celebrate your team exiting spring practices without any major injuries the way you might celebrate a regular-season victory.
But, as is often the case, the offseason is zany and unpredictable. One part of the madness that you can count on, however, is players transferring. Whether it's a big-name star or a highly touted backup who hasn't received enough playing time, guys are always in search of the best opportunity for themselves and their future, and sometimes that means venturing off to another school.
Here's a look at five players who could be transferring in the offseason.
