What if...Terrelle Pryor had chosen Michigan over Ohio State? Rich Rodriguez never has to start the god-awful Steven Threet/Nick Sheridan combo.
ElongatedHorn's post about Burnt Orange scenarios and Doc Saturday's latest post about the "overrated" Terrelle Pryor got me thinking about some recent college football "what if's" that may have drastically changed the landscape of college football today.
What if...West Virginia doesn't lose to Pittsburgh? 2 loss LSU never makes it to the BCS Championship. Fans realize Les Miles sucks (well, realize earlier). LSU fires Miles and hires...Mike Gundy (some schools never learn). Rich Rod's spread offense overwhelms the "slow" Ohio State team and a Big East (!) team is a BCS champion. SEC isn't the sh*t after all. Urban Dictionary has an entirely different definition of "Dick Rod."
What if...Colt McCoy takes one extra second? Burnt orange nation is stunned. "Hunter" is nowhere near as legendary as "Dusty." Garrett Gilbert doesn't get the "championship experience." BCS voters leapfrog TCU to #2 over #3 Florida and #4 Cincinnati in the polls. Alabama plays another Texas team...and destroys them. A BCS Conference team plays Boise State...and destroys them. No one cares about the non-BCS schools this year.
What if...Reggie Bush never got caught? Pete Carroll stays at USC. Seattle still drafts Earl Thomas over Taylor Mays. Lane Kiffin stays at Tennessee. Lane Kiffin never makes Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive poll. Seantrel Henderson stays at USC. Randy Shannon, certified good guy, never gets lumped in with these cast of characters.
