Colts in a big way at home today.  Raiders have the least experienced QBs in the league (Flynn/Pryor).   Clearly a rebuilding year for the raiders.  Next year is a more realistic expectation for them to reach the playoffs. Terell Pryor is the starting QB today for his 2nd career start. On the road the raiders have been especially atrocious.

BOL EVERYONE!! 

I agree although the Panthers have improved closing out the year strong they are not even close to how pete carol got his troops in seattle.  Seattle covered every game this pre-season with a vengeance and were extremely potent on both sides of the ball.  The 2nd and 3rd string looked really impressive as well during the pre-season.  All the way down to tavaris jackson who is argued to be the best back up QB in the league.

I like taking small dogs too but only when their in a situational angle like a short week or something.  But as nick santoro stated they've had months to prepare so the east coast to west coast won't be a factor to Seattle opening week.

Seattle-3

Is there anyone who thinks SJST+15 can cover the first half? Thoughts appreciated.

BYU QB Hill last week was 13-40 175 yards or 32%. I would take the Texas D over Virginia as well. Home field is great if you are in the game come the second half, but if Texas is up a few scores early it wont matter where they are playing, all the air will be gone out of the stadium.

Texas Roll.

 19 returning starters for Texas.

Good morning on the Westcoast anyway.  I'm trying to decide between both the Tenn vols and cincinatti bearcats.  

Tenn. vols have a great o-line this year that return 4 starters. their defense also looks real good and should have an advantage. Also Western Kentucky’s defense struggled in the second half against Kentucky’s run game.  Tenn should have their way on the ground today as a result.

Cincy's defense last week was also really impressive so I was thinking of riding them again this week. 

Small Parlay
cincy-7.5
Tenn Vols-12.5

Straight Bet
tenn-13.5

The reason it is 7 is because they are on the road.  If texas was at home they would probably be around 11-13 point favorites. Like OK St was vs Miss ST. OKST when they were 12.5 favorites Week 1. I think it's pretty accurate.  

Don't Overthink it

What stays with me is how Texas can just  flick a switch after playing terribly and after halftime score 42 points in the second half real casually.  They were clearly looking ahead to this BYU game comng up knowing full well New Mexico St was no match for them.  And that's how exactly they were acting till they cleaned it up in the 2nd half.  Texas has the ability to blowout the game early in the game.  And for BYU they don't have the offense to play from behind.


Goodluck headoverheart

UCF-24.5

UCF QB junior blake bortles threw for 314 yards and 3 touchdowns vs 

Jake Medlock  was benched after going 5/15 for 26 yards.

Here is the breakdown on what the article says
http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2013/9/4/4682920/new-college-football-coaches

Turner's Golden Panther team is heavily depleted from last season's 3-9 squad. Only four returning starters played in the game against Maryland. FIU was blown out, 43-10, and were held to three-and-outs on seven of their first eight drives. The Panthers were outgained by more than 400 yards, and star quarterback Jake Medlock was benched after going 5/15 for 26 yards.


11 first time starters hit the field for FIU and got murked 43-10 by Maryland.  If the Star QB medlock struggle again this should be an easy route for UCF similar to the Maryland game.

Injuries for FIU are already piling up.

Texas D is solid this year, heaps better than Virginia.

Is it the Provo altitude?

Why is this only -7?

HELP!

You are dead on with Texas-7.  They struggled at the start of the New Mexico St game but after they shook off all the opening night jitters and got n-sync.  Texas was scoring rather effortlessly like you said.  And the defense of Texas was suprisingly effective considering how terrible the defense was last year. 

It's a complete mismatch at quarterback. In Taysom hill's defense for BYU he has absolutely no o-line to protect him. Like  last year. No O-Line. They were continuing to get to the QB. BYU's defense will be worn out.

Most of the BIG12 is going uptempo including Texas.  From the practices the Texas defense will be prepared for uptempo offenses this year including BYU's on saturday.  New mexico St was not a great example of the their defense because its.......new mexico st. But still This saturday we will see how much the Texas defense has really improved.

To BYU's credit it did rain in that game against Virginia and had to deal with weather delays for their slow start. So it did slow down BYU. BUT ALL EXCUSES ASIDE.

I don't see BYU keeping up with Texas offensively whatsoever.  I can understand however why BYU+7@home  could be a good underdog bet.  Especially for a bounceback game from BYU which would be a good situational angle to take BYU+7 at home. 

But for me Texas-7.  There is plenty of  motivation for Texas to continue the offensive onslaught with backs Overstreet, Johnson, and Bergeron. Why count on all those offensive weapons on that Texas team to have a off night including a QB David Ash who threw for 4 TDs and 343 yds also 2ints.

To me it's just too early in the season to take the dogs. Texas-7 longhorns roll
