Texas -16.5 VS Maryland                      3U

TEX will play up to their talent level on "D" this season...They are very athletic and are returning 10 starters on this side of the ball...Maryland has a new QB and while they were able to run the ball well at times last season they struggled to against quality teams...The Longhorn O-Line is among the best in the country coming in and will dominate against the Maryland D....They will be able to run the ball at will in this game...QB Buechele had a good FR year and should be very efficient this game as the passing game should be opened up by the run.....I think Tom Herman makes a big statement to open the season with a lopsided win against a Maryland team who will be outmanned on the road..

TEX      42
MARY  13

Cent Mich. - 24.5 VS  Rhode Island.     1`U

Rhode Island is an awful FCS team.......They lost to Kansas by 7 TDS and were beat down a lot last year....Just 2-9 and I dont see them getting much better.....

C Mich is a very average but capable team....They will be improved on "D" this season and have a strong O-line coming in........QB is a ? but whoever he is will have pieces around him.......I dont think C-MICH is a top tier MAC team but in this game I dont see R.I moving the ball much and C-MICH should easily put up 40+

CM 45
RI   10

N Dakota +26.5  @ Utah                        1U

UND is a top 10 FCS team and are no pushover..........I believe Utah takes a huge step back.........They have lost a crazy amount of talent.....They will have their worst O-Line in several years coming in....They have a system QB in Troy Williams who cannot take over games with his arm......On "D" they lose 3 solid DB's and their best 2 pass rushers....They will go from winning 9 games to winning 5 or 6 tops....

Utah  33
UND  14

Notre Dame -15 VS Temple

An argument could be made that Temple will have the highest win drop-off than any team in the country.....Also an argument could be made ND could be the most improved team in the nation....I think Notre Dame is better at every position this year while Temple will be worse at every position.....I like the Irish to be better in every aspect....Although Temple has 3 solid DB's coming back they will be worse because of the pass rushers they lost... I think the Temple "O" will have their hands full breaking in their FR QB and new offense against an experienced and athletic defense...

ND         38
Temple   17

I can take your dig, but its jerks like you, who make unsubstantiated criticism, who don't contribute much to discussions on covers, who lower the quality of this forum.     You should focus more on your own capping endeavors...
