Fans can dream about big things for their favorite programs.Well, most fans can at least. Like every other year, there are going to be some really bad college football teams in 2019.In a piece for Sporting News, longtime handicapper and college football analyst Danny Sheridan tried his hand at naming the 16 worst Power 5 college football programs heading into the 2019 season.Every conference is well-represented on the list, which can be seen here. As for Sheridan’s “top” five, they are as follows. Oregon StateRutgersKansasLouisvilleColoradoHere’s what he had to say about Oregon State, which is coming off a 2-10 season and hasn’t had a winning record since 2013.“Will the woman who left her kids at Reser Stadium please come to the field to pick them up? They’re beating Oregon State 14-0 at halftime! When former Beavers quarterback Jonathan Smith returned to coach the team, it left alumni and students with a warm fuzzy feeling. After all, it was Smith that led the school to its greatest season in 2000, finishing fourth in the nation. Smith was confident he could turn the program around. And like going to Taco Bell at midnight, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Smith will keep Jake Luton at quarterback, who has somehow managed to finagle a sixth year of eligibility out of the NCAA.”If there is some consolation to be had for any of the programs on this list, it’s that teams sometimes surprise the experts and overachieve.At least a couple of these schools will prove the naysayers wrong by finagling six wins and bowl eligibility in 2019.last_img read more
