love your work brother. 

i have a few teams taking HUGE steps back this year. 

my top regressing team is CMU. would LOVE under 6.5 RSW on them. UAB will take time to adjust. who knows what the roster will be like at that point. i think south alabama, and Wky take steps back. also, cannot fathom temple winning 7-8 games this year again. looks like 6-6 tops after losing a ton of talent/coaching staff.

Interesting...   he's a year away from being worth a play.  Next year when Barrett is gone and Burrow takes over it will be Weber's time.

 ....In Fact You and a Guy I play basketball with brought up WEBER having a Huge Year in the last 24 hrs ....


Take that as just what I needed to hear to finalize the BET 


WEBER 55-1   
$100/5550
BUCKEYES could HAVE A MONSTER SEASON !!!!
Might just be an early donation , but I honestly thought his odds would be 40-1 or less 

ONLY 3 TOUGHER ROAD GAMES ON PAPER =
AT NEBRASKA 
AT IOWA 
and the FINALE AT MICHIGAN 
12-0 is possible

THANKS FOR READING AND POSTING BROTHER 

appreciate your input 


Agree with you on CMU ....
But i think odds makers set CMU's win total at  Over 5/ or maybe even less ..
.I have them 4-8/ 5-7 right now 


I Need to do work On Temple / S Bama and WKU 

The Owls have screwed me before ( HAD USF TO WIN DIVISION LAST YEAR ....

FAST FORWARD to School #5 

U AT BUFFALO BULLS 

Lance Leipold was a Legend at D-3 Wisconsin Whitewater 109-6...
Now the BULLS FAITHFUL are getting anxious ( ALL 205 OF US )

Often the 3rd year is when Coaches put their mark on teams  ....

STRENGTHS =

QB  Rd Sft. Tyree Jackson is back ( 6-7 245lbs+) 
If the Bulls are to take a step forward JACKSON WILL BE THE KEY 


While the Starting RB is gone, Returnees Jonathan Hawkins + Emmanuel Reed  have worked hard during the off season  

4 STARTERS Return  on the Offensive Line + a Nice Transfer from Rutgers 6-4 345 LB+  Jacquis Webb.... 

6 OF 7 DB'S ARE BACK 
The Back 7 on Defense should be much improved...

Hodge and Hargrove Return at LB and could have breakout seasons...



CONCERNS 

The D=Line loses it's 2 Best 

WR's ???? Will need some young play makers to step up ...
True FR Rodney Scott (Miami Fl) is the best recruit at WR the Bulls have had in awhile ...

 CAN THE DEFENSE STOP THE RUN ????


SCHEDULE =

at MINNESOTA 4.5%  
Would want 28+ Points in order to back the Bulls here 

at ARMY  35%
Might be a decent ML Dog here , especially if coming off a tighter than expected game vs the Gophers 

COLGATE   73%
Clearly A MUST WIN 

FAU   45.5 %   
owls should be improved , but The BULLS might be a live Home DOG 

at KENT ST  40.5%
Again you might be catching the Bulls with Double Digits vs a possible bottom 10 squad 

WESTERN MICHIGAN  20.5%
Broncos lose some key pieces , but this could ugly 

 NORTHERN ILLINOIS  31.5%
NIU will be improved , but might be laying too many points to cover 

at MIAMI OHIO    19.5%
Redhawks won 6 in a row when GUS Ragland took over before losing their Bowl game 

at AKRON   40%   
Could be a good spot for an upset Win 

BOWLING GREEN  40%
Falcons will be improved as well 

at BALL ST  24%

OHIO 42% 



Bulls could be much improved possibly not STRAIGHT UP WINS , but there COULD BE GOOD MONEY MADE ATS $$$$.. 
MIGHT BE THE DOG IN 11/12 GAMES

DoubleUp,  It's pains me to say it, but I think NIU will be worse, especially on offense.  They were counting on having QB Maddie back for 2017, but his 6th year was recently denied by the NCAA.  WR Golladay and OT Myers are also big losses to graduation.  There is not another WR on the roster that can match Golladay's size and production.  The front 7 on D has some losses too.  And whoever the AD is that scheduled their non-conference games isn't doing Rod any favors.  They were beat up last year by the time conference play rolled around.  May be more of the same this year.  Unfortunately Rod may not be back in 2018.

I have been amazed that The Huskies have sustained any success with all the horrible QB injuries over the last 3 years

Santacaterina or Graham could have a decent year ///

RB Jordan Huff might be all conference

I see what you are saying about WR , but at least 3 of the top 6 targets are back ... Some nice 3 star recruits on the depth chart as well 


Yeah the Front 7 on defense has some Big losses /////

OVERALL I think they still go Bowling , Would Love to see them beat BC week 1 






THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR TALKING MAC FOOTBALL IN APRIL 

APPRECIATE YOUR TIME

I think South Carolina could have a big season... not Big big, but big as in contending for the SEC East.  They have a good QB, good WR, good RB, and possible 1st rd LB and CB.  The team clearly has holes, but I think theyre one of the only teams returning their leading passer, receiver and rusher... They went 4-3 in their last 7 games when they switched to freshman QB Jake Bentley, one of those losses was to Clemson, one Florida, and the last loss was an OT loss to South Florida 46-39

Their TE, Hayden Hurst is a former pro baseball player, he's 6'5 250lbs but had an unbelievable freshman season, and is projected as one of the first TE drafted in 2018. Their leading rusher was Rico Dowdle, a freshman who had 133 carries for 764 yards and 6 TD's, their leading WR was another freshman Bryan Edwards who is 6'3 215lbs, their #2 WR Deebo Samuel is also returning. Between Hurst, Edwards, Samuel they will have weapons. Their O-line is also returning 4 of 5 starters.

Defensively, they're losing some players up front and two LB's, but they're returning their tackles, and one DE. Their best defensive player, is LB Skai Moore, who had 110 tackles, 6.5 TFL, 2 sacks, 4 INT's, 3 FF and 1 FR in 2015, he'll be returning after missing the entire 2016 season with a knee injury.  They're also returning their entire secondary which includes CB's Jamarcus King and Chris Lammons and safeties Steven Montac and DJ Smith.... 

Considering the SEC East is having a bit of a down year, with Tennessee, Florida, Missouri all losing key players, their toughest test may be Georgia, but we'll see if Jacob Eason can develop into a good college QB.  At the moment, I would take South Carolina.

love the MAC. would love to see the bulls catching 28.5 vs minn, will also play them vs FAU, Kent, Akron and agree they could be a great ATS team. if the RSW comes out at 5 or higher though, will play under.

CSU should win 8 games.  Maybe more!! and then HC Bobo on to a Power 5 job.  I think they set the RSW total higher than your projection if you like the Under.

Love What SC has returning and coming in .. 

Schedule looks tough , but does miss the Top Dogs from the West


Here is  my Current schedule Breakdown 

VS NC ST  55%    Could be a Coin flip 

at Missouri 46.2%    Another possible Coin Flip , As mentioned above the Tigers could make huge strides this season ....A win here and the Cocks could be on the way to 4-0

Kentucky   68.3%   

La Tech  67.4%   

at Texas A&M   34.8  %   The Schedule get tough 

Arkansas  52.3%      Tough spot with Tennessee on deck 

at Tennessee 31.1%    Must WIN for SEC EAST hopes /...Clearly this number would be much higher if SC is 5-1 coming in 

Vanderbilt  62.4%     Not expecting much from the Doores 

at Georgia  38.2%    A Win here might do wonders for SEC hopes 

Florida  48.8%     Chances are I will be on SC ATS 

Wofford  97.9%

Clemson  50%     Would take SC +5 or more on the GOY lines ...

 

Would need to finish 7-5 or better for improvement ... While its possible they go 8-4 , I dont see it   .... HOWEVER 2018 Might be their year .....

On a side Note ...I am often way off on the SEC EAST

Guessing odds makers put the BULLS around 3.5/4 .... 4.5 at the highest ....

Col St should be a little higher IMNHO ( so you should get your wish ) 

Ohio might not be that High , Guessing 6.5/7..

Not sure about the rest , still doing lots of work

I'm curious what the thought is there? They have an easier schedule, and everyone back except their stud MLB and stud WR. The OL sucked last year but most are back and they have a transfer from GTech. The WR corps should be OK, as they also have transfer from Oregon. 

They should have a solid D, one of the best backfields in the Big Ten. If the OL can get their act together, I would love to see the RSW total at 6.5.
