Stinkin Thinkin with Stanley's Stinkers

The Letdown Teams of 2014

The college football season is just about a month away, and that means plenty of people are taking a look at who might be national title contenders by the end of the year. Instead of focusing on the best teams in this article, the focus will be on those who are being overrated a bit too much. Here are three teams poised to be letdowns in 2014.

Oklahoma

After an impressive win over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, there is considerable hype surrounding the Oklahoma Sooners. However, plenty of people have them rated as a top 5 team going into the 2014 regular season.

What's with these players?

Call me old school but I think there is something wrong with college football these days. At least with the players of the game.

Sure the competition is better than ever. Yes, the game day experience is more grand than before. And, of course, the coverage out-paces anything from yesteryear.

But, these players are just spoiled.

Well, maybe not all of them. I am sure that there are some really good, selfless players out there who never get attention or press coverage. But, it seems like every week when a wide receiver from Missouri or a quarterback from Auburn or a defensive lineman from Alabama gets arrested or issued a citation or is caught doing something he shouldn't do.

week 15 (newspaper version, 1200 words)

It was the best of times and it was the worst of times.

Rivalry week is finally over and some teams can breathe easier as they head to their conference championships while others are left wondering what might have been. Stanley’s Stinkers finished the week with a 17-3 record and our overall success rate is now seventy-nine percent. Given the way some other college football pundits picked, that is not a bad record. We never back down from the rivalries. Stanley’s Stinkers uses Reverse Prognostication to predict the losers in college football’s biggest games.

week 14 (newspaper version)

With just a few games left in the 2013 college football season, its last chance time for some teams and big chance time for others. Last week, Stanley’s Stinkers finished 16-4, holding our overall success rate steady at seventy-eight percent. But that’s not bad considering the fact that we never back down from the big games. We use Reverse Prognostication to predict the losers in college football. With that said, here are the teams we’ll be watching this week.
