College Football Gambling: Baylor set to bring in former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe

05.31.2016     07:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In full-on damage control mode, Baylor has decided to bring in former Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe on an interim basis. Grobe put together an impressive stretch three-year stretch from 2006-08 where the Demon Deacons went 28-12 thanks in large part to a +39 combined turnover margin. He failed to produce a winning season after that and eventually resigned in 2013. As Grobe mentioned following the announcement, winning will likely take a backseat to cleaning up what has evolved into a total mess. The Bears' season over/under wins opened 9un-125 and has since been bet down to 9un-160. Baylor opens the season with its annual three "gimmie" wins (Northwestern State, SMU, and Rice). 


"He has successfully led two FBS programs during his career," McCaw said in the statement. "Coach Grobe enjoys an impeccable reputation within the intercollegiate athletics community and is a man of great integrity and faith."

College Football Handicapping: Addition by subtraction for Syracuse following loss of Hunt?

09.11.2015     07:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Losing a senior quarterback for the season and being forced to play a true freshman may not seem like an ideal situation but for Syracuse, perhaps it's a blessing in disguise. Terrel Hunt, who tore his Achilles, will be replace by Eric Dungey. Dungey stepped in during last week's game vs. Rhode Island and completed 10-of-17 passes for two touchdowns and no interceptions. One game against an FCS foe doesn't guarantee success but considering how poor the Orange's passing attack was last season (54%, 6 TDs, 17 INTs) it won't take much to upgrade.


"We feel confident that he can do all the things that we're asking him to do," Shafer said. "We don't feel like we have to truly scale things down a whole lot because his learning curve has been extremely small.

"He did a nice job over the last 10 days prior to Rhode Island of being locked into practice," Shafer said.

College Football Gambling: Florida State still winless on the year against the spread

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The BCS Championship hangover continues for Florida State as the Seminoles are 0-4 ATS on the year. After allowing 12.1 ppg in 2013, the defense ranks 64th nationally in yards per play (5.6) vs. FBS foes. In last week's come-from-behind win over NC State, the Seminoles missed 33 tackles. FSU will try to notch its first spread cover of the year laying -38.5 vs. Wake Forest on Saturday.


"Yes, it is," Fisher said Monday when asked if Saturday's game resulted in the most missed tackles since he's been at FSU. "And the bad part [is] we were in position to make a lot of plays. I mean, it wasn't like you were out of position. I mean, the calls were there. We're there. We've gotta tackle better."

College Football Gambling: Market reacts to Wake Forest's shortcomings

Army -2.5 at Wake Forest

A little insight into the big market towards Army as it travels to take on Wake Forest. For starters, Wake essentially lost of a day of prepping for the Wishbone with having to travel back from Utah State. Second is their issues along the offensive line which resulted in six sacks and -25 yards rushing vs. the Aggies. Lastly, first-year head coach Dave Clawson admitted to playing defensive players that clearly aren't ready to play but need to experience.


“Where it really creates the problem is on the way back, because the team doesn’t get back until Sunday morning at 7 o’clock,’’ Clawson said. “So it really creates a lot more problem for the Army prep.

“I mean, when you play these games you prefer to have a long

College Football Betting: Wake Forest goes with true frosh QB

08.12.2014     06:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wake Forest first-year head coach Dave Clawson announced that true freshman John Wolford will be the team's Week 1 starting quarterback. The Demon Deacons are currently 2.5-point road favorites vs. UL-Monroe.


“John Wolford is going to be our starting quarterback,’’ Clawson said. “We made that decision (Monday) after watching the tape of (Sunday’s) scrimmage.

“Not just last night in the scrimmage, but consistently through camp he has executed the offense at the highest level. And I think he gives us our best opportunity to win football games.’’

College Basketball Betting: Wake Forest tries to get over the hump on the road

Wake Forest at Virginia Tech -1.5

Wake Forest enters tonight's game at Virginia Tech on a 17-game game ACC road losing streak dating back to 2012. Part of the problem – outside of the Demon Deacons not being very good for much of that span – is inexperience. Last year they had one of the youngest teams in the country and this year's group, while much improved, still features a lot of underclassmen.  Wake dropped its first three road conference games by margins of 23, 15, and 8 though the competition was significantly stronger than tonight's foe, Virginia Tech which has already suffered home losses to South Carolina-Upstate, UNC Greensboro, and Boston College.


"At home, we have extra energy and extra concentration and we feed off the great energy from our fans, and we're in every possession," Bzdelik said. "Whereas on the road, we seem to lose sight of how valuable each and every possession is. One play, a couple plays, can change the course of a basketball game. We just need to focus on every, every single

College Football Handicapping: Week 11 Injury Report

Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Stanford won’t have DE Ben Gardner for the rest of the season, but at least it is getting another 2012 All-Pac-12 selection back in the lineup. DE Henry Anderson is ‘probable’ vs. Oregon after missing several games with a leg injury.

Troy uses a two-QB system with Deon Anthony used in running situations. Anthony has rushed for 392 yards and three TDs while averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Anthony, who also has three TD passes without an interception, is ‘doubtful’ Thursday at UL-Lafayette after spraining his ankle in a 49-37 loss to ULM last week. Corey Robinson (18-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio) will get all the snaps for the Trojans.

Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis has been upgraded to ‘probable’ vs. BYU after sustaining a chest injury on a touchdown catch in Saturday’s 28-9 win at Iowa. The Badgers will also get back two-time All Big Ten linebacker Chris Borland, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.

Iowa QB Jake Rudock left the Wisconsin loss in the second half with a knee injury, but he’s good to go and will start at Purdue. Rudock has a 12-9 TD-INT ratio.

College Football Betting: Will Wake Forest's under the total trend continue?

For many teams across the nation, 25% of their season is already complete. Three weeks ago as fall practice sessions ended and teams began preparing for their season opening games, those of us who follow college football routinely had opinions set on all 126 FBS teams. Since teams only play 12 regular season games, the quarter pole has always been a time to proactively adjust to teams if need be or stay firm with initial judgments that were made. In this week’s article I’ll take a look at one team specifically from a totals perspective which has thus far performed differently than what the original outlook may have been.

It’s not that Wake Forest's schemes have turned into something we don’t associate with them. After all, this team has had the exact same on-field style for each of head coach Jim Grobe’s 12 seasons here. The difference right now is the extent to which their game scores have diminished. Through their first three games, Wake Forest totals have opened and closed as some of the lowest we’ve seen each week. To see closing totals of 51, 47.5 and 50 in this day and age can definitely be categorized as lower than average. Read more

College Football Handicapping: What to do with bad football teams?

09.17.2013     12:31 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We're through Week 3 of the college football season and for a few teams it's been a struggle. Some of those struggles oddsmakers and bettors spotted well in advance while others weren't as obvious. Let's take a look at some of these teams and decide whether or not they have "bet on" potential moving forward.

Wake Forest (1-2 SU, 0-3 ATS) - For years the Demon Deacons fielded a competitive team with pointspread value under long-time head coach Jim Grobe. But the program has unquestionably deteriorated with records of 5-7, 3-9, 6-7, and 5-7 the last four years. Even with solid turnover margins of +8 and +9 – a staple under Grobe –the last two seasons, Wake looks outmanned and slow compared to the rest of the ACC. They're off to a 1-2 start and once again can't run the football (86.3 ypg) or find consistency in the passing game with senior Tanner Price. This is likely a do-or-die season Grobe and I don't see many more chances for straight up wins on the schedule. This week's price of -3 at Army tells us all we need to know about Wake's place in the betting markets.

Florida International (0-3 SU/ATS) - Pretty Read more
