College Football Betting News: Utah State will employ faster tempo

08.18.2017     07:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Changes coming at Utah State with David Yost taking over as offensive coordinator. Yost has ties to Oregon as well as Mike Leach so it's logical to assume there will be an uptick in pace. The Aggies ran only 66 plays per game last season and ranked near the bottom in virtually every offensive category within the Mountain West.


“There are times (with up-tempo offenses) when it’s nine seconds later and your defense is back on the field,” he said. “That is not what we want to do. That is not our goal as the offense.”

"In the past we've done a lot of sideways passing and not getting up the field as much as we want,” Myers said. “We're going to spread the offense and go vertical a lot.”

College Football Handicapping: Cal defense should improve under Wilcox and DeRuyter

08.17.2017     10:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There's a massive cleanup needed in Berkeley after Cal cut ties with Sonny Dykes and brought in longtime and well respected defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. Wilcox's first job is to fix a defense that was one of the nation's worst units (42.6 ppg allowed last season). Under Dykes, opposing teams scored 40 or more 55 percent of the time. Wilcox hired former Fresno State head coach Tim DeRuyter to serve as defensive coordinator. In two seasons as DC at Texas A&M, the Aggies ranked inside the top 20 nationally in yards per play allowed. And during his first season as head coach at Fresno State, DeRuyter's stop unit ranked second in the Mountain West in yards per game (338.5) and play (4.73) allowed. If anything, it's clear that this year's squad will put a bit more stock into stopping the opposition.


 “We weren’t used to the head coach being in defensive meetings,” senior cornerback Darius Allensworth said. “Maybe a couple times, but Coach Wilcox pokes his head in the DBs room almost every

College Football Betting News: USF tries to maintain offensive success despite coaching change

08.17.2017     10:04 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With Charlie Strong taking over at USF for Willie Taggart, bettors are curious as to what changes will take place. Under Taggart, the Bulls averaged over 500 ypg and 40 ppg last season. One of Strong's main issues at Texas was that the offense never had an identity. Offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert, who Strong brought over from Texas, has a pedigree of playing up-tempo having coached at Bowling Green and Tulsa prior to his one season in Austin. The Longhorns played much faster under Gilbert (83.3 plays per game) than they did (65.1 plays per game) in 2015.

College Football Gambling: Pitt will try to revive defense with youth

08.15.2017     08:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pitt's defense was probably a shade better than the 35.2 ppg it surrendered last season but make no mistake, there were issues. One of the biggest was coughing up big plays. The Panthers allowed 24 plays of 40 yards or longer which ranked 121st nationally. Third-year had coach Pat Narduzzi will attempt to shore up a unit that is projected to be extremely young this season. Pitt manages to avoid Clemson and Florida State but plenty of challenges await. After opening with Youngstown State, the Panthers travel to Penn State, home vs. Oklahoma State, and then open up ACC play at Georgia Tech. Those three squads averaged 39.3 ppg in last year's meetings. Pitt squeeked out two of the three but also went 0-3 ATS.


If you listen to coach Pat Narduzzi and defensive coordinator Josh Conklin, there are 13 young players who they believe are practicing well enough or will eventually compete for spots on the two-deep depth chart. Nine of the 13 are freshmen or redshirt freshmen, nine are shy of their 20th birthday and six are serious

College Football Handicapping: Virginia Tech goes with redshirt frosh quarterback

08.15.2017     08:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Virginia Tech has named redshirt freshman Josh Jackson its Week 1 starter. Under first-year head coach Justin Fuente, last year's starter, Jerod Evans, broke a handful of single-season school records as the Hokies finished 10-4. Tech is currently a -4.5/-5 favorite for its season opener against West Virginia. The game will be played at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.


"Day in and day out he's been more consistent in terms of the things that we've talked about, the three criteria we've talked about before this camp started, and what we are looking for. Taking care of the football, expected outcomes, and how we feel. And in those three categories we feel the best about Josh," Fuente said.

"His execution, his level of understanding the offense, his ability to get out there play after play, and do exactly what he's supposed to do and protecting the football. He showed us that that's really important to him and those factors combined altogether," added Hokies offensive coordinator Brad

College Football Handicapping: UConn names JC transfer starting quarterback

08.14.2017     09:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UConn has never been a destination school for quarterbacks. Over the last seven seasons, only once did the Huskies rank inside the top 100 (2015, 88th) in terms of team passer rating. In his second term in Storrs, head coach Randy Edsall is attempting to change that pattern with JuCo transfer David Pindell. Pindell was recently named the team's starter. It's perhaps a good sign considering senior Bryant Shirreffs started the last two seasons. Edsall's teams however have never been prolific passing the football. During his five years at Maryland, the Terps' average team passer ranking was 92nd nationally.


"Just saw the way he's come in and handled the offense," Edsall said. "He's still got work to do, as they all do, but I think it was time. We sat down with the offensive staff and talked and evaluated all the things we had seen. We made the decision, and now we're going to move forward."

College Football Betting News: Florida suspends seven for season opener vs. Michigan

08.14.2017     07:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the disadvantages of playing an actual game in Week 1 and not some patsy from the Sun Belt is that there's always a chance for some good old fashion offseason suspensions. Florida announced that it will be without the services of seven players including the team's top offensive weapon, wide receiver, Antonio Callaway. Frustrating situation for summer bettors as there was a lot of pro-Gator money. Michigan opened -5 and was bet down to -2.5 before sportsbooks took the game off the board.


"We have a small group of players that have made some choices that are extremely disappointing," head coach Jim McElwain said in a statement, though he did not elaborate on the reason for their suspension. "Action has been taken they have missed some practice and will miss the Michigan game. We will use this as a learning opportunity and we will have some players step up as we move forward."
