5 Trades We Wish We Could Make in 2014 College Football Offseason
Mark J. Terrill

While NFL teams are busy trading players this offseason to bolster their respective rosters, college football is missing out on all that fun. 

That, and there's this whole amateurism thing the NCAA and its membership want you to buy into. 

But what if college football teams could trade players? How would it work? One player for another? One player for multiple players? 

Luckily for you, we have a lot of time on our hands before the college football season begins, so this is the type of stuff we think about. 

There are really only two rules. First, no trades are allowed that add to the 85-scholarship limit. In other words, Quarterback X can't be traded for three scholarships, which would be the college equivalent of trading a player for draft picks. 

Secondly, transfers don't count since they're a one-way transaction of sorts. Any future transfers fall into that category. For example, if former USC quarterback Max Wittek does choose Texas, the Longhorns aren't required to give anything back to the Trojans. Consider that more of a free-agent move.

In each case, the teams would be trading for a player (or players) from a position of need to potentially be better overall.    

Which trades would we love to see in college football? The answers, as always, are in the following slides.
