A season ago, offense was the most popular currency in the college football marketplace. Passers put up big numbers, running backs added to yardage totals and receivers were there to break defensive backs' ankles to turn short receptions into big gains.
For some schools, such as Baylor, even in losing pieces the offense remains largely intact. As Lache Seastrunk and Tevin Reese leave for the NFL, quarterback Bryce Petty, running back Shock Linwood and receiver Antwan Goodley are back in the fold. Other teams are not so lucky, losing quarterbacks, receivers, running backs and linemen to send the offense into rebuilding mode.
Here is a quick look, in alphabetical order, of some of last season's high-level collegiate offenses, based on talent and numbers, with big pieces to replace in the 2014 season.
