The Colts offense ranked 10th in the league at 21.5 points per game while their defense ranked 11th in the league in total yards allowed. Quarterback Andrew Luck is healthy and he finished the season with the 5th best QBR in the entire NFL. The addition may have made the Colts even better in 2019. Indianapolis started 1-5 but finished at 10-6 and ended the season on a four-game winning streak. Indianapolis didnt lose significant personnel during the offseason and were able to add two in th...
Undoubtedly, ESPN's No. 1 recruit in the 2019 class is competing for a starting job and I predict the defensive end will lead UO in sacks this season.At 6-foot-5, 240pounds, hes an elite pass rusher with explosiveness, scary speed and agility that creates major issues for offensive lines. Cristobal named Kayvon Thibodeaux a game changer from the moment he committed to the Ducks.
That came on the heels of the Cavaliers back-to-back upset wins. Virginia enters off a 31-21 win at home over North Carolina, covering as a 8-point favorite. They have covered 3 straight and are 7-1 ATS on the season. The next was a 28-14 win at Duke as a 6.5-point dog. First knocking off then No. 16 Miami 16-13 as a 7-point dog. Virginia has been a covering machine.
The Zips played the Tigers tough and trailed by just a 4-point margin with under 3 minutes left in regulation, however, allowed the Tigers to pull away for the win after a 7-0 Clemson run gave them a 70-59 lead with just :40 seconds left. The Akron Zips lost their first game of the season, dropping to 3-1 on the year, after being defeated by the 16th ranked Clemson Tigers, 72-69, yesterday morning. Akron shot 43.4% from the field and 37.9% from beyond the arc, however, allowed Clemson to s...
All of this comes with a massive caveat: scheduling is hard, yall. Theres a reason Alabama just set up a series with Notre Dame thats ten years away. But there has to be a way to avoid home-and-home series with the best G5 teams in the future, which provide the least possible return on a given scheduling investment.
Ultimately, I expect the Wolfpack to score 40-plus points in this game. Barring a bad day from Finley, the East Carolina defense isnt going to get too many stops in this game. As long as the NC State defense can hold the Pirates to 20 points or less, which seems reasonable, theres every chance the Wolfpack will cover the 24-point spread.
Fortunately, Indiana transfer Nick Tronti looked and played the part this offseason and should at least provide a push. Thequarterback situation should finally be settled.This gig is Chris Robisons, but the former Oklahoma transfer was suspended indefinitely this offseason and now hes back. But Robison who threw for 2,533 yards and 12 touchdowns with 12 picks is the starter.
One other problem: red zone stalls. WKU scored 28 in five. These failures were of direct importance in the loss to WKU the Bulldogs created two more scoring opportunities than the Hilltoppers but scored just 13 points in seven chances. Tech ranked 97th in points per scoring opportunity (first downs inside the opponents 40), 100th in inside-the-10 success rate, and 87th in goal line success rate.
Its a coaching mismatch: Shaw has a system and they run it on both sides of the ball. The Stanford receivers are good, although they lost some good ones to graduation and/or the NFL. Flat out, Stanford coach David Shaw is one of the best coaches in the Pac-12 period. Cardinal quarterback KJ Costello is the worst possible matchup for the Trojans still inexperienced secondary, no matter how talented. Look out below! The O/NSO pessimist: Yeah, and wait till Costello gets in the face of the Tr...
Right now, they rank just 40th in the FBS at an average of 217.5 yards per game. For the past several years, they have been among the top 10 teams in the nation at running the ball. For New Mexico to win, ithas to get itsground game going again. That isnt going to cut it for Bob Davies triple-option offense.
