Now that 2009 has come to a close lets take a look back at the biggest surprises and biggest busts of 2009.
1. Surprise: TCU
TCU played excellent football this season. They have a good thing going and really should consider joining a BCS conference.
2. Bust: Ole Miss
Jevan Snead was less than spectacular all season. Had it not been for Mcluster they probably would not have survived OK State.
3. Surprise: Alabama's Offensive Line
These young men were a question mark coming into the 2009 season. Boy did they do a great job helping take UA to Pasadena and helping Mark Ingram bring the Heisman to Tuscaloosa for the first time. They played well with only two returning starters.
4. Bust: USC
Much hyped in preseason, but just didn't deliver.
5. Surprise: Ohio State beating Oregon
Ohio State leaves the Rose Bowl with a victory for the Big Ten.
6. Bust: LSU
Wasted talent. Moron for a coach.
7. Surprise: Toby Gerhart
Awesome running back for Stanford finished second in Heisman race. He may not seemed to be a surprise to some, but I don't keep up with the PAC-10 that well.
