2015-16 Football Previews – (MAC) – Rockets Head coach Matt Campbell has done an admirable job in his three-plus years at the helm of Toledo football. After a 9-4 record last year, the Rockets are a program that counts itself as perennial contenders in the MAC (they went 7-1 in conference play in 2014).
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – Jayhawks The sad-sack Jayhawks have a new head coach and offensive co-ordinator (David Beaty and Rob Likens, respectively) and they are looking for the right signal-caller to run the team’s new Air Raid offense.
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – Cyclones Iowa State is a program not without talent – maybe even a couple future NFLers in their midst – but fundamentally was still winless in Big 12 play last year and narrowly escaped in-state rival Iowa and MAC opponent Toledo. It’s not inconceivable that the Cyclones could […]
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – Red Raiders It’s been two years since former school record-breaking QB Kliff Kingsbury took over the reins as head coach at Texas Tech, while the offense has been as prolific as expected (especially the passing game – ranked fifth nationally last season) it hasn’t made the gains hoped […]
Week 1 Free Picks 2015 The NCAA football season is just a month away and picking off lines now is always a valuable idea. Lines will continue to move as the season gets closer and closer. Finding value within these lines is extremely possible now as the public is yet to touch these.
2015-16 Football Previews – (ACC) – Orange Syracuse Football seems to have lost its way. They have not been a power like they were in the days of Jim Brown for some time but they used to compete for titles in the days of the old Big East.
2015-16 Football Previews – (ACC) – Demon Deacons Wake Forest football is a tough gig. They do not have a great history to build on, are maybe the fourth option for in state recruits and hardly have the most glamorous facilities.
2015-16 Football Previews – (ACC) – Wolfpack Head coach Dave Doeren had a strong second season in Raleigh including a bowl win. Still NC State is far from becoming a football factory in the ACC, or even getting back to the level where they were putting a scare into the elite programs in the league […]
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – Cowboys Last season, Oklahoma State was mired in what was undeniably considered a rebuilding season. As such, long time head coach Mike Gundy (he of “I’m a man! I’m 40!” fame) decided to turn to true freshman Mason Rudolph at QB, and the gutsy youngster responded by dropping […]
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – Wildcats Despite routinely coming up short in quantifiable talent and highly touted freshman signees, Kansas State finds a way to regularly be competitive in the Big 12. Why? Look no further than legendary head coach Bill Snyder. The wise old dog always gets the most out of his […]
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – Longhorns The Texas sized rebuild continues under authoritarian second-year head coach Charlie Strong. He comes from a strong pedigree after building a winner at Louisville, but Strong must continue to see his changes pay dividends to assuage an impatient fanbase (and donor field) in Austin.
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – Mountaineers It says a lot that West Virginia’s 33.5 ppg average last season was good for only fifth in the conference and 34th in the nation. Its passing game was particularly effective, with 317 pass yards per, on average.
2015-16 Football Previews – (ACC) – Cardinals Louisville is a basketball school and this is likely never going to change. They had things going pretty well when Bobby Petrino 1.0 was in charge and now that he is back they are looking to be a factor again, this time in the ACC.
2015-16 Football Previews – (ACC) – Eagles Every once in a while Boston College is able to have some real success on the gridiron. Back in 2007 they actually reached the number two spot in the national rankings during the season, but since then there has been a steady decline.
2015-16 Football Previews – (Big 12) – OU Sooners It says something about Oklahoma’s football program that an 8-5 season is seen as a complete failure, but that was reality last year. Passing was the Sooners’ undoing, both on offense and defense.
2015-16 Early-Season Football Matchups – (Pac-12) The Pac-12 Conference saw a sudden shift in power during the 2009 season. Prior to that year, the USC Trojans had won (or been named co-champions) seven straight years. Since then, it’s been the Oregon Ducks/Stanford Cardinal show, but the Trojans have a solid chance to make up for that this year if they can […]
