College Football 2011: Auburn, Ohio State, and Oregon Must Face the Hangman

The Hangman occupies a chilling place in the collective mindset of western civilization.

For all too long, and far too often, the image of the "last person to let you down" permeated the idea of  law and order in this nation and others.

Whatever the reason, the idea of a verdict leading to the final dispensing of justice by an unknown individual took hold in modern culture.

Eventually the concept evolved into a byword word regarding having to answer for one's shortcomings in life.

In time, even the children became involved by creating a word puzzle that sentences an opponent to eventual defeat one step at a time.

Slowly, inexorably, the base of the gallows is built, the derrick erected, the rope hung and finally the person is left to swing in utter defeat.

Using these concepts as our guide we shall construct our own assessment of various conference members and determine the progress of teams.

An evaluation of how close each will be to success or demise in 2011. 

The Hangman will now dispense final verdicts on the future of college football teams in the PAC-12, SEC, and Big Ten conferences.
