College Football Gambling Update: Stave didn't play vs. LSU due to a bad shoulder

09.02.2014     02:50 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Where there's smoke, there's fire, right? Some bettors were probably wondering why last year's starter Joel Stave didn't take a snap vs. LSU. Here's your explanation. It turns out Stave had a bum shoulder and will be out for the foreseeable future. Redshirt Bart Houston will serve as Tanner McEvoy's backup. 


"Joel has been dealing with some issues with his throwing shoulder for the last couple of weeks and we have come to a decision, after talking with Joel, that the best thing for him right now is to shut it down and give him some rest," Andersen said Tuesday.

"It was a tough decision because Joel is a great competitor and has a tremendous desire to help this team," he added. "We will continue to monitor his progress, but we're not putting a timetable on his return at this time."

College Football Gambling: Wisconsin has a quarterback problem

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Concerns about Wisconsin's quarterback situation following Saturday's second half meltdown vs. LSU. First-year starter Tanner McEvoy threw for only 50 yards on 8-of-24 passes. It raises the question should the Badgers revert back to last year's vanilla-but-for-the-most-part-effective starter, Joel Stave. Head coach Gary Andersen said both will undoubtedly be used throughout the year. UW plays host to FCS Western Illinois this weekend.

 

“We need two quarterbacks. Sooner or later, you’re going to have them both. Tanner’s the starter today, but Joel’s going to fight like crazy to get some reps and if there’s an opportunity that presents itself for Joel to be able to come in and play, then so be it.”

“Do we need better play (at quarterback)? Absolutely. Nobody’s going to sit there and debate that. We need better play out of the quarterback. We need better play in the throw game, period. There’s some

Florida State vs. Oklahoma State
Saturday, 5 pm PT, Arlington - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -17 O/U 63
CRIS Current: Florida State -18 O/U 63.5
Paul's Recommendation: Florida State

Defending national champion Florida State and Big XII perennial contender Oklahoma State square off in Saturday's 2014 season opener at AT&T Stadium in Arlington also the site of the finals of the inaugural College Football Playoff. While the Seminoles return many of their key components and rank as the consensus choice to repeat as national champions, the Mike Gundy-coached Cowboys will be trotting out lineups of mostly first-time starters on both offense and defense. With just eight returning starters, four on both sides of the ball, Oklahoma State is one of the least experienced teams in any of the so-called Power Five Read more

Fresno State at USC
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
USC -22 O/U 58
CRIS Current: USC -21.5 O/U 57.5
Ian’s Recommendation: USC

Rematch of last year’s Las Vegas Bowl in which USC demolished a better Fresno State squad, 45-20. Fresno State’s success was contingent upon its offense behind quarterback Derek Carr. He has since moved on to the NFL and head coach Tim DeRuyter has narrowed his replacement down to either junior Brian Burrell or Duke transfer Brandon Connette. Regardless of who starts both are expected to play on Saturday. This uncertainty doesn’t bode well for Fresno State against a stellar USC defense that welcomes back one of the best defensive lines in the country with Leonard Williams, J.R. Tavai, and Antwaun Woods. And behind them, even with the loss of Jabari Ruffin to a season ending torn ACL injury, they are still very strong Read more

College Football Betting Preview: California Golden Bears at Northwestern Wildcats

California at Northwestern
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Northwestern -12 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Northwestern -11 O/U 60
Andrew's Recommendation: Northwestern

The thing to remember about Cal is if we go back to the early portion of head coach Sonny Dykes' first season there were signs of potential. In Week 1 Cal had Northwestern on the ropes in Berkley before two costly second half interceptions gave the far more experience Wildcats the 44-30 win. And in Week 3, Cal was eventually blown out but hung over 500 yards on a 12-win Ohio State squad. Then the wheels came off as injuries set in, their lack of depth was exposed, and Dykes' pedal-to-the-metal offense put a ridiculous amount of pressure of what would end up being one the worst defenses in the country. My point? If Cal was good enough to play with Northwestern and move the ball vs. Ohio State then a year later (wiser, stronger, and healthier) Read more

College Football Betting: Friedgen makes his OC debut for Rutgers

Rutgers vs. Washington State -8 O/U 63

Good article on Rutgers offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen. The Fridge has been tight-lipped about how the Scarlet Knights will line up for Thursday's opener vs. Washington State (at Seattle). His Maryland teams were pretty balanced but head coach Kyle Flood said he wouldn't mind utilizing some form of the spread at times.


"I thought he would be a perfect fit for us because he was a pro-style coordinator that had a lot of flexibility in his run and pass, which is something I'm always looking for,'' Flood said, describing why he lured Friedgen out of retirement. "For Ralph to decide to come back to football, and to come back to Rutgers to do it, I couldn't me more excited. We've got one of the premier offensive minds of the

Thursday, 5 pm PT, Atlanta - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Mississippi -10 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Mississippi -10.5 O/U 53.5
Rob's Recommendation: Over

Intriguing non-conference, neutral field matchup between teams with something to prove. Ole Miss has drawn a lot of preseason enthusiasm but not enough to make the masses believe they’ll finish in the top three of the SEC West. Head coach Hugh Freeze and staff have recruited tremendously and the Rebels are out to show everyone they can take a major step up in the standings. They have 15 returning starters and 60 returning lettermen from last year’s 8-5 team including senior quarterback Bo Wallace. The return of second team All-SEC tieght end Evan Pilgrim is huge for the team as he was quickly becoming a security blanket for Wallace prior to his season-ending injury late last season. Defensively, this team has playmakers at every level Read more

College Football Gambling: Wisconsin remains noncommittal on starting quarterback

08.26.2014     07:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, reports surfaced that Wisconsin was going to start former safety/JC quarterback Tanner McEvoy ahead of last year's starter Joel Stave. Now head coach Gary Andersen is saying neither one has been anointed the "No. 1 guy." Clearly McEvoy has better upside but Week 1's game vs. LSU is not an ideal environment for a rookie quarterback. At some point, the Badgers may need Stave's experience hence why Andersen hints both guys will likely see the field.


"At the end of the day we're right where we were," Andersen said. "We've got two quarterbacks that I think are going to help this football team throughout the year.

"And whoever takes the first snap doesn't necessarily say he is going to be the guy for the whole season.

"We've got two kids that want to compete and will continue to compete. That's where we're going to stay with it. "

"The offense is built around the offense,

College Football Gambling Update: Tennessee wants offense to focus on tight ends

08.25.2014     12:49 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Virtually non-existent last year, Tennessee plans on utilizing its tight ends more in 2014. Head coach Butch Jones went so far as to say the offense would be "tight end-oriented." That sounds a bit extreme but also smart considering the Vols now have both talent and depth and the position. It will also in theory help quarterback Justin Worley’s development.


“We want to be a tight end-oriented offense,” Jones said last week. “... Now we have a little bit of depth, but we also have competition there as well, which is great to see. The competition has really elevated the play of a lot of individuals at that particular spot.”

“(Offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian) does a great job of adjusting year-by-year to the strength of the team,” Elder said. “As we play and as we play well, we’re going to be in more multiple tight
