NCAAF Betting Notes: Vanderbilt offensive struggles continue

08.23.2011     09:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Keep an eye on Vanderbilt's offense this season. Not necessarily for more production but rather a move to a more conservative approach. Last year the Commodores attempted to run a version of the spread offense and it simply didn't work (16.9 ppg, 298 ypg). First-year head coach James Franklin brings over his pro-style offense from Maryland (63.2 plays per game in 2010). His first task it to somehow teach his quarterbacks accuracy. Vanderbilt signal callers have been in absolute free-fall since Jay Cutler left in 2005 with completion percentages of 55.5, 54.4, 49.2, 48.3, and 46.9 the last five seasons.

If you read between the lines, Franklin, who has been pleased with is defense, Read more

NCAA Football Handicapping: Odds to Win SEC Championship

06.01.2011     12:35 PM     Printer Friendly
Alabama will open the 2011 season as the betting favorite to win the West Division (+100) and SEC Championship (+170). The Crimson Tide managed to avoid getting hit too hard by the NFL Draft (5 selections) and are slated to return as many as 15 starters – the most of any season under Nick Saban. The one thing standing in the way however is the schedule as four opposing SEC teams come in off of a bye week prior to playing Alabama. Last season, it was a similar situation with six straight SEC opponents getting a much need bye before playing the Tide. All three of Alabama’s straight up losses came against rested teams. Also note that no one in the SEC outside of Alabama plays more than one team off a bye week this season. Auburn (+800) won last year’s National Championship but is priced lower than Mississippi State (+650) to win the West thanks to an NCAA-low seven returning starters. LSU (+175) brings back 15 starters but must travel to Tuscaloosa in early November.

In the East, Florida (+125) gets the Read more

Tennessee Vols find success in passing game

11.19.2010     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly
Tennessee -9 at Vanderbilt O/U 49.5

Due to its inability to run the ball effectively, Tennessee has been forced to rely more on the pass of late. The Volunteers average an SEC-worst 83.8 ypg and 2.78 ypc rushing within league play. During the team's current two-game winning streak, the pass offense has produced 702 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions. Expect that trend to continue on Saturday as Vanderbilt ranks at the bottom of the SEC in a bevy of passing defense categories.


"I feel like (offensive coordinator Jim) Chaney is going to take what the defense gives us," tight end Luke Stocker said. "If the defense loads eight guys in the box, we're going to throw the ball. If they put seven in the box, we're going to run the ball. I think whatever we're doing well that particular day, he's going to stick with it. It just seems the past few weeks we've done well at Read more

Passing game a focus for Vanderbilt this weekend

11.09.2010     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly
Vanderbilt at Kentucky -14 O/U 54

With no viable options at running back due to injuries, Vanderbilt has come out and said that it plans to throw the football much more than usual against Kentucky this weekend. Unfortunately, there hasn't been much success in the passing game as the Commodores have totaled just 466 passing yards in six SEC games. UK's pass defense shows some decent numbers (165.4 ypg allowed) but that has more to do with the fact that opposing teams have been able to run the ball at will (196.5 ypg allowed SEC play). Not to mention, despite how bad Vanderbilt has played, we can't recommend laying two touchdowns with a horrible Kentucky defense that makes it tough to separate from opponents. Also keep in mind that the Cats haven't been favored by more than 3.5 over Vanderbilt dating back to 2003.


"May have to (pass)," Coach Robbie Caldwell said. "When you don't Read more

Key offensive injury for Vanderbilt Commodores

11.01.2010     10:47 AM     Printer Friendly
Florida -14 at Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt's leading rusher Warren Norman will miss the rest of the season with a wrist injury. Norman averaged 5.96 ypc, was a contributor out of the backfield as a pass catcher (11 catches, 110 yards) and was also the Commodores' top option return kickoffs (22 returns, 26.7 ypr). He was 23rd nationally in all-purpose yards per game (140.9).

Vanderbilt makes switch at offensive coordinator

10.26.2010     07:31 AM     Printer Friendly
Vanderbilt at Arkansas -20.5 O/U 54

In hopes of spurring on some sort of offensive production, Vanderbilt head coach Robbie Caldwell demoted Jimmy Kiser to QB coach and promoted Des Kitchings to offensive coordinator. The Commodores rank 105th (18.9 ppg) in scoring offense. Four of Vandy's final five opponents (Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Wake Forest) rank 51st or worst in scoring defense.


"We're a fragile bunch offensively. We've got to do some simple things and make them click so we can stay" on the field, Caldwell said. "We've got to string some plays together. We haven't been able to do that."

Georgia continues to expand playbook with QB Murray

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Vanderbilt at Georgia -15 O/U 48

Rob Veno pass along a positive article about Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and the team's offense. Murray had his best game as a collegiate last week against Tennessee with 266 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.


“I feel like he’s seen growth in me,” Murray said after Monday’s practice. “I definitely feel like I’m progressing slowly every week. I’m just trying to get better week in and be out. And just be smart.

“I think he’s gained more confidence in me and hopefully I continue to show him that I can earn his respect and earn the respect of the rest of the offense, and he can put more on my plate.”

Fired up coach and QB switch spark offensive turnaround for UConn

09.27.2010     10:16 AM     Printer Friendly
Vanderbilt at UConn -7.5

Tied 14-14 at halftime against Buffalo, the combination of UConn head coach Randy Edsall's tirade at intermission and the switch to Cody Endres at quarterback sparked the type of performance that bettors hadn’t seen this season. The Huskies outscored the Bulls 31-7 in the second half and Endres took the team on scoring drives on four of their first five possessions. Endres, who had his suspension lifted prior to the game, finished 7-of-11 for 139 yards and two touchdowns. In his first start as a redshirt freshman back in 2008, Endres led the team to a 40-16 home underdog win over Cincinnati but injuries and "creative differences" left him on the bench more often than not. The second half explosion with Endres behind center could be the boost the Huskies need in order to contend in a wide open Big East. Bettors seemed to have liked the result as UConn Read more

Betting Preview: LSU Tigers at Vanderbilt Commodores

LSU -9.5 at Vanderbilt O/U 43.5
Recommendation: LSU
Saturday, September 11th – ESPNU


Vanderbilt wasn’t a good offensive team last year, averaging less than 17 points per game while gaining less than 300 yards of total offense against BCS conference competition. The Commodores are likely to be every bit as weak on the offensive side of the ball this year. Head coach Bobby Johnson quit in mid-July; a clear indication that he didn’t see many bright spots for this squad. Johnson’s replacement, career assistant Robbie Caldwell, has his work cut out for him to field a competitive team in 2010.


Vanderbilt quarterback Larry Smith was a disaster last year, throwing only four touchdown passes while completing a dismal 46 percent of his passes. He has a weak receiving corps to work with, utterly devoid of SEC-caliber playmakers. Smith struggled for extended stretches against a mediocre Northwestern stop unit in the opener last Saturday, routinely missing wide open Read more

The College Football Lines are A-Movin

08.27.2010     07:28 AM     Printer Friendly
A couple of recent lines moves in college football over the past few days. Let's analyze what went down.    

Illinois vs. Missouri (@ St. Louis) - Missouri was as high as a 14-point favorite but money has steadily come in on the Illini with a big move down to +11.5 last night. The move was a result of Missouri RB Derrick Washington being suspended. As for Illinois, Ron Zook's bunch enters the season with new coordinators on both sides of the football. Illinois closed a 6.5-point favorite in last year's matchup but lost 37-9.

Northwestern at Vanderbilt - This game was settled in at Northwestern -3 for a majority of the summer but Vandy's coaching change and various key injuries have given the market enough reason to bet against the Commodores. The Wildcats were bet up to -4 a week ago but a big push to -5.5 last night shows there is little expected out Vanderbilt Read more
