Good Year For/Bad Year For - 2009 Edition

We've had great years and we've had crap years in the world of college football. The greatest year this decade was probably 2005, when everyone kept on beating everybody else, and you couldn't hold your breath. 2009 was distinctly middling, with three teams battling it out for, er, three places. And none of them lost - despite the close calls.

With that in mind, the VFA are giving out their feelings on a Good Year/Bad Year basis.

GOOD YEAR FOR: Urban Meyer - Florida 2009 National Champ, Unbeaten (regular) Season
BAD YEAR FOR: Charlie Weis - Wins a Bowl, loses to Michigan, USC and, erm, UConn, Gets fired.

GOOD YEAR FOR: Colt McCoy - Wins Fiesta Bowl, Unbeaten season, Goes to NC Game
BAD YEAR FOR: Tim Tebow - Win NC Game, Gets Concussed, Loses SEC Title Game, Cries

GOOD YEAR FOR: Brian Kelly - Cincy unbeaten, Gets Bearcats Noticed, Goes to coach Notre Dame
BAD YEAR FOR: Mark Mangino - Kansas trainwrecks a season, accused of bullying players, fired.

GOOD YEAR FOR: Alabama - Unbeaten season, win SEC, Heisman Trophy Winner, National Championship Game
