It was a magical year in college football.
There was seemingly an upset every week and several players and coaches emerged from the pack as a cut above the rest.
Lamar Jackson ran away with the Heisman Trophy early, Jim Harbaugh kept us scratching our heads and the ACC overtook the SEC as the toughest conference in football.
It was the kind of year you could make a 19-minute highlight reel out of.
That’s just what this person did:
There are several programs poised to come out of this season and into the next one as major contender. The future for Ohio State looks bright. Alabama is likely to open next season as the no. 1 team in the country and the University of Miami appears to be ascending back to prominence under Mark Richt.
With so much change expected within the coming years as a result of player safety and the ability to justify student-athletes as anything other than slave laborers, the 2016-2017 season provided a lot of nostalgia fodder for old age.
