Not all teams can stay good forever. That is the case for any sport. Although all five of the teams in the slides that follow didn't have their worst seasons in school history, they still took a step back last season. Luckily for those teams, they will all bounce back in the 2014-15 college football season.
The Virginia Tech Hokies actually took a small step forward last season, but expect them to get back into the national spotlight in 2014. Things can only go up from here in the offensive department for the Hokies. A better offense will lead to a better season. Pretty simple.
With all of the news surrounding the Notre Dame football program right now, who knows what will happen to the Fighting Irish before the season even starts. Regardless, the Fighting Irish will welcome back QB Everett Golson, and with a brutal schedule should be in the national spotlight all season. They probably won’t go undefeated this time around, but a 10-win season is not out of the question. Either is a College Football Playoff appearance.
Georgia had the talent to have its best season ever in 2013. What an epic fail that was. Aaron Murray is no longer the gunslinger of the Bulldogs, but Hutson Mason should fill in nicely. Not to mention, running back Todd Gurley could challenge for the Heisman.
The Charlie Strong era has begun in Texas. As a result, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the Longhorns. Texas probably won’t make the playoff this year, but it has the talent to at least finish better than last season (8-5 record).
It’s kind of hard for Florida to not bounce back in 2014. After all, the team finished 4-8 and did not make a bowl game. That does not happen very often in Gainesville. QB Jeff Driskel is healthy, the offense should be improved and Will Muschamp’s job is likely on the line. A better record in 2014 isn’t guaranteed, but it might as well be.
