Turns outa simple calendar won’t slow you down. Just take a look at this list of teams to watch in 2023. There are many more inspiring stories to tell.
We have already given you, so now let’s focus on the group of schools not on this list. They have a lot in common: rebounds. Rather, potential rebound seasons.
Thanks to the transfer portal and the one-time transfer rule, teams were able to rebuild faster than plastic surgery. Just look at 2022 with USC, Tulane and TCU, the latter being the first to go from a losing program to a national college football playoff championship.
Get used to it. Those coaches who mastered the portal the fastest were the most successful. Among the 12 schools below that could make the top 25, three had less than 0,500 entries in 2022. Two more took 7th-6th place. The five have improved by at least two games since 2021, proving that the twists and turns maybe happen in a hurry.
We remind you that this is one of the most volatile sports on the planet. As they say in financial management, past results do not guarantee future results.
