College Football Betting Preview: Michigan State Spartans at Western Michigan Broncos

Michigan State at Western Michigan
Friday, 4 pm PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
Michigan State -18.5 O/U 60
CRIS Current: Michigan State -18 O/U 58.5
Recommendation: Western Michigan

On Friday Western Michigan hosts in-state "Big Brother" Michigan State in Kalamazoo. The Broncos are coming off an 8-5 SU campaign that saw head coach P.J. Fleck's kids cover 10 of 13 contests against the number while the Spartans are looking to improve on their 11-2 finish from 2014 by hopefully unseating Ohio State for the Big Ten title and secure a berth in this year's College Football Playoff.

Western Michigan brings back a ton of offensive talent with QB Zach Terrell (3,443 yards, 16 TDs) and RB Jarvion Franklin (1,551 yards, 24 TDs) leading the way. The Broncos also return their top three pass targets in Corey Davis, Kendrick Roberts and Daniel Braverman. This unit will be tested by Michigan State's strong defense, which returns six starters now after LB Ed Harris will miss the season with an ankle injury. We'll get to see how this defense plays without the leadership of former defensive coordinator Pat Read more

College Football Betting: Utah not sure how Harbaugh's Michigan squad will look

09.01.2015     07:24 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bettors aren't the only ones left guessing on how Michigan will look in Thursday's opener at Utah. The Wolverines have been fairly quiet in the media though the Utes are leaning towards a similar identity to that of last season under Brady Hoke. Note that UM was one of slowest paced teams in the country at around 63 plays per game in 2014. In last year's meeting, Utah won 26-10 in Ann Arbor. Both teams combined to run the football 73 times. The total in that game closed 53. The total for Thursday's game is currently 46.


"We matched up pretty good against them physically, we stood in there and slugged it out toe to toe," Whittingham said. "(Former U-M coach) Brady Hoke was a coach that liked physical football as well. So if nothing else, maybe the confidence we played these guys toe to toe last year and came out alright."

College Football Gambling: Illinois goes with OC Cubit following Beckman's departure

09.01.2015     07:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
By now you've heard the Illinois fired head coach Tim Beckman. The reason at this point is irrelevant as the Illini open their season Friday at home vs. Kent State. Offensive coordinator Bill Cubit has been named the interim HC for the season. Not surprising, the player quotes regarding the move were positive: 


"He's like a father to most of us," Lunt said. "He's a really good football coach but he truly cares about his players. We're behind him because we believe in him."



Say what you will about Beckman - and we routinely do on the Podcast - he did improve by two wins each of the last two seasons and somehow got the Illini to a bowl game. However, last year's 3-5 Big Ten mark was perhaps fortunate as Illinois was outgained by 1.65 yards per play vs. the Big Ten.

College Football Handicapping: USC's Sarkisian no longer calling plays

09.01.2015     06:40 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
USC head coach Steve Sarkisian has passed along play calling duties to offensive coordinator Clay Helton. At least one article is viewing the move as a positive.


“I love calling plays that’s what I do ... how I got into this profession and worked my way through it,” he said. “But I want to be a great head coach. I don’t want to set offensive records and finish 8-5 or 9-4. I want to win 13 games and 14 games.

“To do that, me being in defensive meetings, me being in every special-teams meeting, me really understanding the nuances of those things is critical to our success.”

College Football Gambling: South Carolina looking to get after quarterback

08.31.2015     07:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A year removed from finishing 94th in total defense (432.7 ypg allowed) South Carolina claims that more pressure will be applied on the quarterback this season. Last year the Gamecocks finished with only 52 tackles for loss (119th) and 14 sacks (119th). Week 1 should serve as a good test as North Carolina returns 105 starts along its offensive line and is projected to have one of the most explosive offenses in the ACC.


“We’re going to get at the quarterback this year,” said Sawyer. “I promise you that. We’re going to really get after the quarterback.”

“Darius English looks like an All-American,” said Spurrier. “He pushed Brandon Shell right back into the quarterback. And he pushed (Christian) Pellage right back into the quarterback.”

Below are some article links for recently named starting quarterbacks.

Bryant Shirreffs named UConn's starting quarterback. Shirreffs sat out last year after transferring from NC State.

Texas Tech released its depth chart but won't say who the starter is for Week 1's game vs. Sam Houston State.

Washington head coach Chris Petersen knows who his starting QB is but won't tell the media.

Ohio is going with senior Derrius Vick at quarterback. Vick took a bulk of the snaps in six games last season (59%, 1,156 yards, 8 TDs, 4 INTs).

College Football Handicapping: Grading Big XII defenses

08.28.2015     07:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article that defends Big XII defenses as "not that bad" because of pace of play and opponents' offensive capabilities. Similar to college basketball, a number of coaches are now using points per possession as a way to better judge their stop units. Below is last season's Football Outsiders' national FEI rankings.

2014 Defensive FEI rankings - Big XII
No. 6 - TCU
No. 10 - Baylor
No. 25 - Kansas State
No. 32 - Oklahoma
No. 44 - West Virginia
No. 73 - Texas
No. 75 - Oklahoma State
No. 87 - Texas Tech
No. 88 - Iowa State
No. 103 - Kansas


"It's completely opposite of what it should be defensively in statistics," Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. "It should be points allowed per possession. Like our defense, when we were rolling offensively here in those years, our defensive coaches and our team were facing about 16 or 17 possessions a game. There's teams in the league and other leagues that only face 10, or 11 or 12 possessions, so

College Football Betting: Washington State see turnovers as a way to defensive improvement

08.27.2015     09:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on Washington State's first-year defensive coordinator Alex Grinch. Grinch has never been a DC though spent the last three years coaching Missouri's secondary. There's obviously work to be done as Wazzu sported one of the worst power conference defenses in the country (38.6 ppg allowed). Some of their struggles were no doubt because of a lack of talent/ability/PAC-12 offenses. However, the unit was up against it on a regular basis thanks to an offense that coughed up the football 25 times. Turnovers are a part of who the Cougs are so to remedy that, Grinch is focused on takeaways this season which is nice in theory but something that isn't always controllable. That said, the extra emphasis can't hurt as Wazzu forced only eight turnovers last season; tied for the worst mark in the country. In 2013, they had 30 takeaways but committed 35 turnovers. Basically Washington State is the nation's best team at not being able to get out of its own way. Read more
