For college football fans, there are three ways to count time. There are the now-defunct pre-Julian Calendars, which featured just 10 months...the reformed and current 12-month calendars that feature July and August as months...and the annual time span of August to January that encompasses a college football season.
Yes, for true die-hard college football fans, it feels as if a new year begins every late August/early September, and then ends the first week of January. Each August and season kickoff can bring as much joy and optimism as the dropping of the ball in Times Square. But as is the case with life, sometimes, we are disappointed.
What follows is a list of the fanbases who should be most upset with their team's performance this year. It is based on an inexact science that considers expectations, results, off-the-field controversies, etc. Basically, if you were a fan of the team, how happy/upset would you be so far this season?
