Mettenberger will be nowhere close to as good this year as you think

book that

For someone who has been following college football for 30 years, you display spectacular ignorance.  I wish I was your bookie.

Mettenberger was the #3 ranked pro-style QB in the nation coming out of high school in 2009, and qualified as one of the Elite 11 QBs.

http://georgia.scout.com/2/769514.html

Had it not been for an arrest that got him kicked out of Georgia, he almost certainly would have beaten out Aaron Murray for the starting QB position.  During the time they were competing for the starting QB position, Murray was running a distant second to Mettenberger.

At 6'5" and 230 lbs, Mettenberger has prototypical NFL size.  Barring some unforseen injury or arrest, unlike his predecessors, he will be playing on Sundays for an NFL team.

Mettenberger probably has the strongest arm in all of college football.  He is basically a Ryan Mallet clone - huge arm, but lacks mobility (hence his knickname "Pillsbury Throw Boy").  His statue-like presence in the pocket probably won't prove to be much of a liabilty however, given that he will be working behind one of the best offensive lines in the country.

Mettenberger represents a huge upgrade for LSU at the QB position.  With Mettenberger's ability to stretch the field with his howitzer of an arm, LSU's running game will be that much more lethal this season.

With the exception of Alabama, LSU will be far superior to every team on their schedule.  Moreover, they will be the favorite in all 12.  The only games that have any chance of being remotely competitive are South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, and maybe Arkansas.  Personally I would not include Arkansas on the list because the Razorbacks cannot come anywhere close to matching up with LSU in the trenches.  I really don't see how that game will be close.

LSU will not even be in four close games this season, much less lose four games, and Mettenberger will be one of the primary reasons for many of the blowouts.

There is no way anyone could possibly think LSU will lose that many games, even if you are a hater that is just stupid. That is even dumber than thinking Auburn will win 10 games.

. . . or that Auburn is a legitimate contender in the SEC West.    I've heard that one a few times.

Auburn is a team in complete disarray.  Almost all of their top recruits from the past three seasons are no longer on the team, most of them due to legal trouble.  They have a head coach who has no idea what type of system he wants to run on offense or defense.

Can you imagine Nick Saban changing offensive and defensive philosophies every couple of years???

They have no legitimate SEC caliber QB.  They will be extremely fortunate to become bowl eligible this season.  Fade this team hard early in the season.

If Michigan State has an awful season, you'll win you wager.  But there's no value in that bet.  Sparty will be favored in 10 of their 12 games (granted a couple of those lines will be a FG or less).  They'll lose in Madison for sure, but they're more than capable of winning at Michigan, if you don't think so, check Denard's stats vs MSU.  I understand you're betting on the fact that MSU's passing game is entirely new, but every other aspect of their team is loaded.  The offensive line is improved and Leveon Bell will be an absolute beast this season.  The defense is Top 5 in the country, they just had 4 players named to Bednarik Watch list.  So the running game and defense will take all the pressure off of Maxwell, who came to MSU as a much more decorated QB than Cousins ever was.  I'm not saying you'll lose your MSU bet, but there's no value in betting either side of that one.

they don't have to have an "awful season", just go 8-4 with that new qb, new wr's, and new te.  we'll see how well they run they play 8-9 guys in the box the first 4-5 games until the qb gets some reps. 

v Boise St

@ Cent Mich

v ND  (probable Loss)

v Ohio St  (Loss because OSU is better)

v Iowa

@ Mich  (Loss because Mich is better and wants revenge)

@ Wisc  (Loss)

v Northwestern (tougher gm than you think)

@ Minnesota (see N'western note)

 

i think they can definitely go 8-4 or worse w/that schedule

Michigan state will have 4 losses by Saturday when Michigan punks them in the "big house", and my UNDER 8.5 will be a WINNER when October is not even over,

LSU Under 10.5 might win as soon as Oct 20 when they play @ Texas A&M, or at worst on Nov 3 when they host BAMA.

these 2 season under plays were CLEAR AS DAY

anyone who did not realize that BOTH of these were sure winners, simply does not know college football,

did you hear me?

those who overrated LSU, DO NOT KNOW COLLEGE FOOTBALL

What's clear as day I that you like hearing yourself talk. If you win your wager then so be it. Not sure why you would bump this after an LSU win.

to all of those who defended michigan state, you are now 4-4, and by october 20th, my UNDER 8.5 wins is already a mathematical winner,

too easy.

now, all I need is LSU to lose one more, and that UNDER 10.5 wins as well,

Bama will take care of that for me on 11/3

Nice job.  You won a couple of wagers dude. Not sure there is a need to bump your own thread twice.

i know it's completely obnoxious to keep bumping, but i want the people who told me i was basically an idiot for picking UNDER on both Mich St and LSU, to step up and admit they were wrong.

getting people to admit they are wrong is very hard to find in sports betting, which is why most sports bettors suck,

i was wrong about Kansas St, and went into my own thread and admitted it.

that's why i can win more than i lose, because i recognize when i am wrong about a team
