Like Bill Connelly, I am a firm believer that college football’s 2007 season is the greatest of my lifetime. So, enjoy his reboot, in words and pictures.
It was an amazing year from the get go, starting with Appy State’s immortal upset of Michigan. LSU’s season was full of plot twists from start to finish. Then, there was West Virginia simply needing to get by “the s*****est f***ing team in the f***ing world” and they were in. But they di’int.
Also, Darren McFadden.
October 27: No. 20 Georgia 42, No. 9 Florida 30
And just like that, Georgia became the best team in the country (a few weeks too late for it to matter).
That early season loss to South Carolina was a killer.
Really, there were a number of teams that could have staked a claim to being the best after the regular season. It’s the one time an eight-team playoff would have been a worthy experience.
What a season.
