Take a deep look at almost any college football program, and you'll find them sitting there waiting to be uncovered, like pill bugs balled up under a rock: comeback stories. They are the lifeblood of sports, testaments to resilience and perseverance that never fail to stir a reaction. The tales highlighted in this issue are among the most compelling of the season. One involves a player, another a coach and a third an entire program, and as is often the case, these stories are the result of injuries (USC's George Farmer), poor decisions (Louisville's Bobby Petrino) or some combination of both (Florida). Reading about the humbling drive to find what has been lost gives hope to those whose favorite receiver or play-caller is working for one more chance to get it right, to crawl out of the shadows, stretch his legs and run to daylight.
