Texas Tech -6.5 (**) vs Minny.  Heres another one where I initially wanted to take the points – but after further review the play was overturned.

 

Minnesota’s defense is horrible.  There is no other way to put it.  They are 113 out of 119 in college football in total defense.  They suck equally against the pass and the run.

 

Plain and simple, I think that is the key to this game.  Texas Tech wins when they score points, and I have no evidence to show that Minny will be able to stop TT at all.  TT special teams are better both punting and FG kicking.

 

An interesting stat.  Minnesota is #1 in the nation in turnover differential, and that is how they have stayed in games this year.  Take away the turnover and they really are terrible.  Their offense will be able to move the ball but I just don’t see TT being stopped very often.

 

Minnesota might be the worst bowl team from a Major conference this year.  They beat North Dakota State in the middle of the season 10-9 and were outyarded by 131 yards.  2 of their other wins was against Kent State and Temple. 

 

TT 48-24

 

Purdue vs Maryland (NO PLAY).  I cant figure this one out at all.  I cant back a Maryland team that cant score and has no idea how to put away teams (they won every real game by less than a touchdown) – and I have a hard time backing purdue who has a hard time turning yards in to points.

 

This is a pass for me.

That bama game was a strange game.  I never expected the bama defense to get torched on the run and that was the difference.  They couldnt stop that up the middle option play.
 
Penalties and mistakes hurt badly too.
 
GL tomorrow everyone.

Riding the South Carolina pick as also think Kolb hasn't seen this level of pass rush and pressure.

Hey Koaj, where is Greenbacks anyway?  I don't think I have seen him in a long time (or have I)?

Van,
 
Congrats on continuing winning these games.  How do you feel about TT -7.5?  I missed the early line and still saw -6.5 yesterday.  Any input is appreciated.  Thanks for winning me $ over the course of this bowl season

WTF?  Please elaborate.  Is it still a solid bet @ -7.5?
