College football changes quickly and moves fast. LSU is the new national champions at the expense of Clemson’s 29-game winning streak, but both its quarterback and passing game coordinator are gone, just like that.

With LSU smashing the closing line, as it’s done all year, oddsmakers should be happy to close the book on the Tigers dramatic ascension and near perfect season from a transfer quarterback.

The losses of passing game coordinator Joe Brady to the NFL and quarterback Joe Burrow for LSU come at a time when the SEC West is experiencing change at most programs. Alabama may rely on true freshman quarterback Bryce Young in an opener against USC, while Mississippi State will undergo a dramatic offensive philosophy shift with Mike Leach.

One team in the SEC West has avoided turnover in coaching staff while taking minimal losses to the NFL Draft. That team has finished in the top six over the past two recruiting cycles, and never lower than 17th in the past four years.

The correlation between blue-chip recruits and winning national titles is fact and not theory, as this team looks to break into the upper-echelon of college football.

This article will focus on an early pick for the 2021 national title that may be off the radar.

Other programs just missed the cut, but may be a transfer portal quarterback or offensive coordinator away from investment.
