I think we will need to redefine what is a lost program. For example, if Virginia Tech went back to the form that Frank Beamer always had, would they return? I ask because the schools trying to get back this year are disappearing like Spider-Man in Infinity War. (I can’t remember if Marty McFly ever disappeared for a Back to the Future movie, so if that’s a more appropriate reference, use that.)
I didn’t realize this until Troy Aikman pointed it out, but during my time as Bruin, UCLA was the #1 team in the country (and I’m sure other times too). They didn’t win the national championship or anything, so does that count? I guess you’ll have to read on to know as a couple of McFly contenders took L’s this weekend, and although Washington State and Florida can still run the vehicle, if you’ve watched their games, you know that can’t happen. .
So let’s see who’s still hanging around outside the Back bar, hoping a friend, or a string of luck, will win them entrance.
