Which teams will have the biggest drop-offs in 2016?
Wednesday August 3rd, 2016

Regression is inevitable in college football. Teams can’t stay at their best forever. Sometimes it’s because of a difficult schedule. Other times, critical players from previous years’ successes are gone, and the replacements just quite aren’t at the same level. And some years, it’s simply bad luck. Regardless of the reason, the reality is not every season can be destined for greatness.

So which teams are prime candidates to suffer setbacks this season? Which fan bases should be on alert to lower their expectations? SI.com’s Colin Becht and Chris Johnson weigh in with their picks in the video above for the teams mostly likely to suffer the biggest drop-offs in the 2016 season.
