Anyone who tries to argue that "stars don't matter" either a) doesn't know what they're talking about or b) roots for a team in the middle of that graph and is trying to be optimistic.

The 2011 Wisconsin game was the lone highlight of the year, but I'd still bump it off the list for the '14 PSU double OT game.

Also I know this site has a lot of current students and 20-somethings who are probably too young to remember, but I feel like like 2010 Sugar Bowl gets consistently overlooked.  It was a HUGE deal to finally get the SEC monkey off our back.

I’m not sure why our fans got so bent out of shape about Dabos comments in 2016. He saw a Beck/Warriner offense being led by a QB that wasn’t great at throwing the ball. We all said the same things at the time. Thankfully those days are long gone.

I agree with your top three and your last place but disagree with everything in the middle. 2018 is way too high - that team was so incredibly frustrating to watch with a nonexistent running game and terrible defense. 2015 also too high given how much we know they underachieved. Conversely, 2010 is too low for no reason at all - how is a one loss team that was conference champs and won the Sugar Bowl below a 2013 team that ended on a two game losing streak and won nothing other than a division?

Joe got all the headlines, but they're still a team with a TON of talent.  They should still be favored against maybe every team but Bama.

Gill is impossible to judge at this point.  He plays the same position as our schools all time reception leader, so he really hasn't had a chance to play much yet.  I guess we'll see this year.

I think that idea works better in theory than it would in reality.  Considering how much we already complain about the officials, introducing even MORE subjectivity by asking them to decide someone's intent would just lead to even more appearance of bias.  Imagine if Wade got ejected for 'Level 2' targeting and then ten minutes later a Clemson player only gets a 'Level 1' for hitting Fields in the head.  This place would burn hotter than the sun.

Under your system if the star defensive player targets your backup TE the coaches are just going to sit him the rest of the game.  That wouldn't work.

The targeting rule is basically here to stay, maybe with some minor tinkering at best.  We might not like it as fans, but with the lawsuits and CTE studies they're simply not going to do anything that would make it look like they care less about head injuries just because people watching on TV complained.
