College Football Gambling: Rutgers adjusts to life as an up-tempo team

08.19.2016     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In keeping with our recent theme of first-year head coaches looking to go up-tempo, we take a look at the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Chris Ash steps in after serving as co-DC at Ohio State. He brings with him 28-year-old OC Drew Mehringer from Houston. Mehringer's offense is referred to as the "power spread" as will feature more pace. Rutgers ranked 13th in Big Ten play in total offense (338.9 ypg) last season.


"There’s some nuances and mechanics that go with the tempo," Blazek said, "and we’re picking up where we left off in the spring. … I like where they’re at."

But he added, "We’ve got some things we’ve got to work on."

"It’s something we’ve had to adjust to [physically]," the redshirt junior said of the faster-paced offense, "but I think it helps us out. It helps keep the defense on their toes. They’re not able to set up and make as many subs as they want, [and] at the same time it helps us

College Football Gambling: Maryland to go up-tempo under first-year coach

08.18.2016     08:39 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
More new head coaches and more newly implemented up-tempo offenses. With Randy Edsall gone, Maryland first-year head coach DJ Durkin is trying to change the culture of the program and the first order of business is to improve an offense that ranked in the bottom half of nearly every category in the Big Ten. Durkin though appears aware that playing fast also means a defense that coughed up 41+ on five different occasions last season will be asked to participate more than likely wanted. 


“(The amount of plays) used to be a big deal,” Bell explained. “You had people up there bragging about how many plays they ran, but at the end of the day it’s about winning the game. Our first year at Arkansas State (in 2014), we were sixth in the country in snaps per game and broke every record in the history in the conference, but we were 7-6 so nobody cared. And then last year, we were 33rd in snaps per game, still broke every record in the history of our conference, but, at the end of the day we were 8-0 in

College Football Handicapping: Mendendall wants Virginia to pick up pace

08.18.2016     08:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Virginia Cavaliers mark another team attempting to play up-tempo with a first-year head coach. Bronco Mendenhall says he wants the offense to "get with the times" and play as fast as possible. This of course will be a significant departure from former head coach Mike London's system. Virginia's offense actually showed flashes of competence last year as it quietly ranked fifth in ACC play in scoring (27.1 ppg) and total offense (400 ypg). However, on a national level, the Cavs ranked 76th at 5.49 yards per play. 


“We train during practice based on the fastest teams in the country,” Mendenhall said. “Our practices are based on who is the very fastest in college football, what is their time between plays. And we mirror that.”

“Basically after a play’s dead, you’ve got to line back up, look at the signal, see what the play is, and get ready and be ready to go,” Eldridge said. “That’s the hardest part, transitioning, because you

College Football Handicapping: Army loses starting QB, backup injured

08.17.2016     07:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting development with the Army Black Knights. Projected starting quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw recently left the team. Backup Chris Carter is expected to step in though is currently unable to practice due to a hamstring injury. Carter started the final two games of last season and showed some acumen in the passing game with 348 yards. Throwing the football is something Army had said it wants to do a lot more of this season.


“We are going to throw it more,” said Brent Davis, entering his third season as Army’s offensive coordinator. ”We have a weapon (6-foot-4 receiver Edgar Poe) on the outside, for sure. We have the slotbacks that can catch the football. We are working like heck to protect better. We are better at it.”

It's a new year and that means Rutgers is bringing in a new offensive coordinator. First-year OC Drew Mehringer will mark the seventh in seven years for the Scarlet Knights and is expected to install was is referred to as the "power spread" similar to that of Ohio State and Auburn. Rutgers averaged a pedestrian 67 plays per game last year.


"We install several different tempos," Mehringer said. "We're trying to manage the game and get the offense as well as the team in the best chance to win. Tempo and how we can affect that on offense is a big conversation."

“Do you have to have a pure running quarterback? No you don’t,” Mehringer said. “Do you have to tweak what you
