Each season in college football, coaches must make many decisions about their players, their coaching staffs, and ultimately their seasons.
If we follow the analogy of football as a "battle", the toughest decisions coaches face are around their field generals, the quarterbacks.
While the coaches make decisions off the field, their fate on the field lies in the hands of their quarterbacks.
In last year's National Championship game, Mack Brown called a play for Colt McCoy to run but during the execution of it--McCoy chose to turn his back on Marcell Dareus, and one hard hit later, Mack Brown's chances for the title were gone.
While not all of these coaches will face decisions affecting the national championship, they do face some tough decisions around the quarterback position.
