Thanks for visiting!MINNESOTA OFFENSE This offense is pretty much what will determine how good the Gophers will be this year.  The 2014 offense was solid, particularly behind the legs of David Cobb on the ground.  And they struggled to really become much of a threat through the air unless TE, Maxx Williams was able to get in space and make some plays. Both of...

Colorado State Football 2015 – Better, worse or ab...

COLORADO STATE OFFENSE Change is constant, particularly in college football, but the Rams have had more than their fair share of it lately. Jim McElwain led the team to one of the best regular seasons in program history and then left before their bowl game to take the Florida job. Garrett Grayson broke just about every CSU passing record as a senior before being drafted by the Saints in the third round of the NFL draft. Left...

Wake Forest Football 2015 – Better, worse or about...

WAKE FOREST OFFENSE  Wake’s offense will almost certainly be better than a season ago, but admittedly there is really nowhere to go but up. Wake Forest had the 126th “best” offense in the country last season, according to Football Outsiders’ S&P+ ratings. Wake finished ahead of only SMU and Eastern Michigan. The Demon Deacons also had by far the worst rushing attack in the country.  Why, besides...

Illinois & Louisville Football 2015 – Better,...

Illinois Football 2015 – Better, worse or about the same? ILLINOIS OFFENSE The offense pretty much hinges entirely on if Wes Lunt can stay healthy or not. If Lunt stays upright, this offense should hum. WR Mike Dudek will miss the OOC schedule, but will likely be back for the majority of Big Ten play. Dudek and Geronimo Allison give Lunt two legitimate deep threats on every passing down which should open plenty of room...

New Mexico Football 2015 – Better, worse or about ...

Three questions about New Mexico Football 2015 Can the Lobos offense be better in 2015? In 2014 New Mexico was one of the premier rushing teams in the nation. They averaged 310 yards per game which was good for 4th in FBS.  The Lobos triple option is hard for teams to cover because it requires extreme discipline and more often than not defensive breakdowns led to big plays but big plays alone will not score you points. The...

ACC QB Breakdown: How This Affects Betting in 2015

The ACC is loaded with quarterback potential this season, as the conference welcomes back 10 starters from last year. Despite losing Jameis Winston, some may be underestimating how good this ACC crop could be. So how exactly will this affect how you bet on ACC teams this year? Let’s take a look at some factors to consider this fall from a handicapping perspective. Experience Like I stated earlier, the ACC returns 10...

Arkansas Football 2015 – Better, worse or about th...

ARKANSAS OFFENSE The consensus coming out of spring is that Arkansas will be much better on offense in 2015. Fifth-year senior quarterback Brandon Allen had a terrific spring. Bret Bielema said following the spring game that his QB didn’t throw an interception all spring, so all indications point to Allen and the passing game being much stronger next season, which was – if you could point to one thing – the...

Oregon Football 2015 – Better, worse or about the ...

The Oregon Offense in 2015  If you asked for my opinion on the Ducks offense coming into this season immediately after the brutal loss to Ohio State in the College Football Championship Game, I would have been concerned.  Losing Marcus Mariota made everything seem difficult again – fans were happy for him, but worried about the team.  Questions about who the quarterback was going to be formed a thick cloud over what was...

Utah Football 2015 – Better, worse or about the sa...

UTAH OFFENSE Utah still has a lot of question marks surrounding its offense; however, I believe the Utes will be better than last year. For starters, Utah has a senior quarterback in Travis Wilson that knows the system and has an offensive coordinator that believes in him. In spring, Wilson looked free and unencumbered as he picked up where he left off last year at the Las Vegas Bowl where he was named the game’s MVP....

Northwestern Football 2015 – Better, worse or abou...

NORTHWESTERN OFFENSE Better or worse? Right now, that answer depends almost entirely on one person… and we don’t even know that person’s name yet. That person, of course, will be Northwestern’s starting quarterback, the winner of a three-man competition that didn’t come any closer to being decided in the spring. With the departure of Trevor Siemian, a 7th-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, senior Zack Oliver, sophomore...
