The 2011 season is right around the corner. Spring ball has already begun and football talk and predictions are filling the air. Last season brought a lot of surprises. Auburn may have been the biggest surprise, with everyone in the country not knowing just how good Cam Newton was going to be.
We saw plenty of upsets and plenty of dominance. Of course the 2011 season will have plenty of surprises of it's own, but the usual suspects will be at the top. Oklahoma, LSU, Ohio State and Alabama should and will be fixated in the top 10, all with coaches who have already captured the crystal ball and have tasted what it's like to win a national championship.
Then there are the dark horses. Florida State, TCU, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Florida are all waiting in the wings for their chance at a national title shot and all those programs have coaches who have yet to capture the national championship glory.
This list compiles the coaches who could get a taste of a national championship this season. Many of them are in the same conferences so there will be plenty of battles, but only one team can reign supreme at the end of the year.
