Hello, once again. With the preseason Coaches Poll just released, and the AP due in about 2 weeks, I thought I'd start looking ahead to the 2017 season.

2007: The Bizarro Season

When someone uses the argument that "every game matters" in college football, no season is a better example of that than 2007.  That year, from the very first week, no team was safe, especially if they were ranked #2.  It was an exciting - and ever changing - road to the national title, with new twists and turns every week.

Still, ten years later, I'm not even sure if everyone is aware of just how crazy that season was.  SB Nation calls it the best college football season ever.  It certainly is a standard that I have measured every season since against.
