In search of preseason preview

Specifically, I remember reading an article that discussed the 5-6 elements of teams likely to make the jump to championship contender.  It was stuff like "x" number of returning starters, senior QB, etc. and the person writing the article simply checked off which teams qualified and which didn't, irrespective of preseason polls and expectations.  Anyway, Alabama was one of the teams and I remember we all sort of chuckled because it was borderline delusional to consider a BCS title game when we were coming off a 7-win season.  But now I'd like to read that article again with the benefit of hindsight and see if the issues discussed have indeed been critical to our success and how teams that haven't had expected success fit into these 5-6 categories.  Also, it might be fun to project ahead to next year.

If there's one place where I'm sure I can find someone who knows what I'm referencing, RBR is the place.  For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure I read this online, so it should be something we can link to.

Thanks in advance, LD
