College Football Handicapping: Back to the drawing board for Texas' offense

09.08.2015     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Not every team can make a seamless transition from traditional to up-tempo offense. Texas managed only 163 yards in Week 1's 38-3 blowout loss at Notre Dame. Keep in mind that the Irish defense, when healthy and not littered with suspensions like what occurred the back half of last season, is a top 20 unit. That said, the performance didn't bode well for the Longhorns after saying they wanting to pick up the pace in 2015. UT's next three opponents present far better opportunities to move the football with Rice (55th in total defense LY), Oklahoma State (93rd), and California (124th) all headed to Austin. Of course one game into the season and head coach Charlie Strong is already questioning his offensive coordinator.

"We have to change. We have to get better on offense," Strong said of his Texas team.

"Things can always get fixed," Strong said, continuing saying that it's just about rolling up your sleeps and getting things done.

College Football Betting Update: Penn State shows no sign of o-line improvement

09.08.2015     07:47 AM     Printer Friendly

So much for an improvement. Penn State made shoring up its offensive line a top priority after 2014's disaster. We won't lay all the blame on the unit during Week 1's loss to Temple, but it certainly was as major issue. The Owls completely dominated the Nittany Lions in the trenches with 10 sacks and only 2.9 yards per carry allowed. PSU has now allowed 54 sacks over its last 14 games.

College Football Gambling: BYU offense should be fine despite loss of Hill

09.07.2015     08:32 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
We all knew it was a matter of time before BYU's Taysom Hill went down with some sort of injury. It just happened to occur in Week 1 and be of the season-ending variety. The Cougars are no strangers to playing without Hill under center. They lost him in Week 6 last season and while the Cougs were 4-0 SU in games he finished, there wasn't that much of a drop off in offensive production following his departure. In four games with Hill, BYU averaged 450 ypg and 37.5 ppg. In eight games without Hill, BYU averaged 470 ypg and 39 ppg. Those numbers were boosted thanks to a 64-0 win over Savannah State but the Cougs' shortcomings without Hill (4-4 SU, 3-5 ATS) were just as much a defensive issue as not having a key player. Freshman Tanner Mangum replaced Hill and threw the game winning Hail Mary against Nebraska on Saturday. Magnum, who is about to turn 22 years old, comes in highly regarded. He isn't much of a runner so the offense will need to be adjusted in a hurry as BYU returns home to play host to Boise State. That said, BYU's offense looks to be in decent hands.

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Longhorns at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

09.04.2015     10:14 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Otto Sports blog entry.
Texas at Notre Dame
Saturday, 4:30 pm - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -8.5 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -9 O/U 49
Recommendation: Under

The theme of the entire offseason for Texas was the adoption of a new "up-tempo" system. This after the Longhorns averaged 337.3 ypg of total offense in 2014. It's a logical choice considering the current climate of college football and the Big XII in particular but not every move to up-tempo yields instant results like what we witnessed with TCU. Initial reports suggest that the Longhorns aren't really changing the playbook but rather attempting to play at a faster pace. Either way, expect some early season growing pains. And it's not just the offense you worry about. Typically when teams decide more plays and possessions is the route to go, the defense tends to suffer. And defense was the sole reason why Texas was halfway competitive last season.

It was a tale of two seasons for Notre Dame's defense last season. Aided by health, depth, and a favorable slate in terms of opponents' offensive potency, the Irish had the look of a top 10 unit. But Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Alabama Crimson Tide

09.04.2015     07:28 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Wisconsin vs. Alabama (at Dallas)
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -9.5 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: Alabama -12 O/U 49
Recommendation: Under

Wisconsin has gone through a major transformation since the last time the Badgers took the field; an overtime win against Auburn in the Outback Bowl.  Head coach Gary Anderson left Madison for Corvallis, leaving the program in the hands of Paul Chryst, who went 19-20 in three years as the head coach at Pitt.  Chryst has brought in a new offensive coordinator, Joe Rudolph.

A new coach and a new offense is only one piece of the puzzle for the Badgers.  Yes, Wisconsin returns senior quarterback Joel Stave, but Stave is a game manager on a good day, a long way from being an elite level QB.  Last year, he completed only 110 passes, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns.  Wisconsin’s receiving corps isn’t littered with playmakers, and they’ve got a big void to fill at running back, with Melvin Gordon going in the first round of the NFL draft.

But the biggest problem for Wisconsin heading into this Read more
