President Barack Obama was sent through the inauguration promenade in the nation's capital Monday to officially kick off his second term in office. While this was going on it got us wondering who would be sworn in as President of College Football Nation, if such an utopia were to actually exist. We took the question to Twitter to see who you folks had in mind. Here is what you had to say... @crystalballrun Tony Barnhart — CFB Zealots (@CFBZ) January 21, 2013 One of college football's most well known columnists. Mr. College Football himself. The man would certainly have a way with words, no question about that. @crystalballrun REX BURKHEAD — Jilly Twenty (@1morehandmedwn) January 21, 2013 Rex Burkhead, Nebraska running back aiming for the NFL. OK, not really sure what to say about this one other than he would certainly be a tough President to take down. But he would also be prone to injury so that's probably not a great suggestion. @crystalballrun I vote for Brett McMurphy — Mark Parsley (@mpar42200) January 21, 2013 There would be no secrets left uncovered under McMurphy's watch. "Sources" would have all of the inside info and be able to relay the information to the constituents with no problems. In as much reality as we can possibly encounter in this little exercise it does appear there are two clear-cut choices. @crystalballrun Nick Saban who else is even on the same level? — Andrew Castle (@TheACastle) January 21, 2013 @crystalballrunTom Osborne, he's the only logical choice. #Huskers — 1ILLHusker (@1ILLHusker) January 21, 2013 Take your pick here. Do you prefer life under a dictatorship under a leader who accepts nothing less than the best and is always on the attack forming plans for the next great dynasty? Or do you prefer a more politician like man with a firm grasp on the politics of the sport? Both Saban and Osborne would seem to have their advantages and quite honestly, this would make for an interesting campaign if each were in fact running against each other for our fictional office. Did we miss anyone? Feel free to continue adding your suggestions in the comment section below.
