As we inch closer to the beginning of the college football season, here are the 5 most overrated teams to look out for this season.
If you followed us last year, you know that I’m not too thrilled about the Iowa football team. Sure they beat down Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl, but I’m still not impressed. I think the Hawkeyes finish 4th in the Big Ten behind Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Penn State.
TCU Horned Frogs
After the terrible performance against Boise State, I don’t think this team can compete with National Championship caliber teams. Opening day will tell us a lot when Oregon State comes to town and if TCU loses that game we won’t hear from them the rest of the year.
North Carolina Tar Heels
Even before the agent stuff started, I felt like Carolina was very overrated. Yes their defense will be very good, but their offense is just terrible. Greg Little is the best thing they have on offense but he can’t do everything. T.J. Yates will have to have a breakthrough year for North Carolina to make it to ACC title game, but knowing him, I wouldn’t bet on it.
Les Miles has done a great job bringing down LSU’s talent base since Nick Saban left. The offense is terrible and the defense outside of Patrick Peterson, who might be the top corner in the nation, is young and small up front. It’s funny that two of my overrated teams are playing each other on opening day.
With Jeremiah Masoil leaving for Ole Miss, I think Oregon is going to be the most disappointing team in college football. Oregon still doesn’t know who their QB is going to be and from watching their spring game, they still have a lot of work to do on defense. Unless a QB emerges, it’s going to be a long year for the Ducks
