Now that there is talk of a dynasty in college football, there has to be talk of those teams that are hitting the skids. 

It is not like I am picking on the Pac-12, with a West Coast bias.  I am not even piling on Notre Dame.  But careful observation shows that the potential for epic failure is with the following five teams. 

Some of the teams live with the dreams of being number one so their slide is hard and painful.  Other teams just hope to have a winning season, so their slide is gradual.  Together the comprise the five college football programs on the decline.
