College Football Rankings 2011: 3 Sizzling Hot Offenses That Will Burn Out
One of the hardest things to do in college football is to get hot and remain hot during the span of a whole season.
Most teams can find a pocket of a few games where they are absolutely on fire, but it is rare for a team to be able to keep that up.
There are too many factors that play into it! Coming out with the same passion, energy and inspiration every week of the season is almost impossible, the amount of film that is out on you goes up with every game you play, and sometimes you run into a team that is far better than you and can cool off your hot streak.
The same concept that applies to team works within the team, specifically the offense.
There are a few very explosive offenses to keep an eye on in 2011, but here are three that will eventually burn out:
Under Rich Rodriguez the Wolverines came out every year on fire, albeit playing against inferior teams. Even with Brady Hoke under helm I still believe that the Wolverines will come out strong, mostly because Hoke should run relatively the same offense with his own adaptions. Denard Robinson is easily one of the most explosive players in the game, and he can keep Michigan on this list all by himself. Once they start playing legitimate teams within the Big Ten though I foresee Michigan’s offense falling off.
While I really like Landry Jones and some of the players the Sooners have around him, I just don’t see them keeping it up for the whole season. More specifically, I have a feeling that Oklahoma is going to lose a big game in which there offense doesn’t show up, and it will most likely cost them the BCS championship bid.
There is a growing sentiment that the Tigers will be fine without starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson. If you didn’t hear, Jefferson is under investigation for his role in a bar fight, along with four other teammates. Even if he doesn’t face legal action he will most likely be suspended by the NCAA or by LSU. The Tigers first game of the season is against the Oregon Ducks, and the Tigers will need the explosive Jefferson under center. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem likely that they will have them.
