The crew's national sleeper teams distinguished themselves in a variety of ways throughout the 2011 college football season...mostly in negative fashion. Here is a rundown of each crew member's national sleeper team. Hide the women and children.
Patrick Williams - Syracuse Orange. Final Record: 5-7. Bowl destination - None. Moment of Achievement - Defeated West Virginia 49-23 on October 21st to move to 5-2 on the season. Moment(s) of Failure - Lost final five games to finish 5-7 and miss out on a bowl game. Scoring stats - 84th in points scored per game (24.2) & 75th in points against per game (28.5). A bad combination. Final Grade - C-
Johnny Fayetteville - Texas Tech Red Raiders. Final Record: 5-7. Bowl destination - None. Moment of Achievement - Defeated No. 1 Oklahoma on October 22nd to move to 5-2 on the season. The win ended OU's 39 game home winning streak. Moment(s) of Failure - Never won another game after beating OU, and just like Syracuse, lost their last five games to miss out on a bowl game. Not sure Texas Tech fielded a defense. Scoring stats - 26th in points scored per game (33.8) & 117th (yes, 117 out of 120) in points against per game (39.3). Good gracious. Final Grade - D
Tom Logan - Louisville Cardinals. Final Record: 7-5. Bowl destination - Belk Bowl versus North Carolina State. Moment of Achievement - Went 5-2 in the Big East and tied for 1st place. Won 5 of their last 6 games. The best of this year's national sleeper teams. Moment of Failure - Lost at home to Florida International. Scoring stats - 100th in points scored per game (21.8) & 14th in points against per game (19.2). Final Grade - B
Jimmy G - Arizona State Sun Devils. Final Record: 6-6. Bowl destination - MAACO Las Vegas Bowl versus Boise State. Moment of achievement - Defeated USC 43-22. Were 5-1 on October 8 and in firm control of the putrid Pac-12 South division. Moment(s) of Failure - lost 5 of their final 6 games including the last four to finish in 3rd in the Pac-12 South. Fired head coach Dennis Erickson which may be a moment of achievement. Scoring stats - 25th in points scored per game (33.9) & 64th in points against per game (64th). Final Grade - D-
