VT, FSU, and Miami are all down, and in the case of VT and

Miami, have not had any sustained success for awhile now. (I discount Richt's one good year as an obvious flash in the pan.)

You could say that FSU and VT suffered from having an iconic coach stay too long at the dance. Penn State is in that same boat, although with a heinous sidenote. Not the case at Miami, since their success was accomplished with several different coaches along the way. So, what happened, what changed?

They are not alone. Other "blue blood" programs declined when the scholarship limits took hold, namely Texas, Nebraska. Texas is finally showing signs of life again, jury still way out on Nebraska. They may never recover from the error of joining the Big 10.

I guess this post is just a lament over "lost identities" in college football in general. This may be our Golden Age, but the Golden Age of college football in general, to me, is long over.

Now, get off my lawn! :)

Southern Cal, and Tennessee come to mind.

Some of the teams listed by the OP are a series of underperforming coaching staffs, some are parity issues, and some are conference adds/realignment.

The ones I listed seem to be primarily bad coaching hires.
