In just a few short hours, college football season will officially be here. It's that happy time when everyone is undefeated and every team just knows it is finally their year. But the good times can't last forever. Here are five burning questions as we enter the 2013 football season:
After back-to-back championships, Alabama is a heavy favorite this year to become the first team to win three straight titles, capturing 58 out of 60 first place votes in the AP’s preseason poll. But Ohio State, Oregon, Stanford and Georgia round out the top 5 and will be gunning for the Crimson Tide. Here is a complete rundown of the preseason Top 25.
Those long-handled putters that have become fairly popular on the professional golf circuit could soon be obsolete after the U.S. Golf Association and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club—the official governing bodies of The Rules of Golf voted this week to ban “anchoring” a club while putting.
The University of Oregon athletic department is completely underwritten by UO alum and Nike president Phil Knight. It’s not like they’re hurting for money. They still came up with a novel approach to fundraising—allowing the general public to watch Ducks’ cheerleading tryouts for $5 apiece.
Tyrann Mathieu has never suffered from a lack of confidence. But the "Honey Badger" definitely upped the ante this week when he planned to throw a “1st round draft pick party” in New York City even though most draft analysts pegged him as a likely second day pick. Late Wednesday, Mathieu came to his senses and canceled the party. In the end, the Honey Badger did care.
Every year there is a guy or two who goes from unknown to first day NFL pick based on an impressive performance at the NFL Combine. Likewise, there are always a few big name players who see their draft stock slide after a sub-par showing.

In early September, Notre Dame linebacker and Heisman Trophy candidate Manti Te’o—just days after learning of the death of his girlfriend—led the Fighting Irish to an emotional upset of then-#10 Michigan State.
