Here are more NCAA point spread numbers from the 2007 SMU Mustangs. NCAA point spread numbers show that SMU was 6-6 in terms of over/unders in 2007. As bad as things were in 2007 for SMU they could get better fast. The team lost five games by a touchdown or less according to NCAA football point spread stats.
The offensive player of the year according to NCAA football point spread stats was QB Justin Willis while the defensive player of the year was safety Bryce Hudman. The game that seemed to spell the end for SMU according to NCAA point spread experts was the loss against Tulsa in late October in which the Mustangs couldn’t put the game away and allowed a long game winning TD drive by the Hurricane.
There is really a lot of good news for SMU according to NCAA point spread experts considering they only had one victory in 2007. Jones takes over at head coach and he gets Willis back at quarterback. Willis does not have a huge arm according to NCAA point spread experts but Jones should be able to use him in a short passing game. Jones will have Willis throwing the ball all over the field and SMU should be exciting to watch according to NCAA point spread experts. The problem for SMU is one that Jones was well familiar with in Hawaii and that is defense.
SMU had a horrible defense a year ago and has to at least slow teams down on occasion or SMU will be playing 60-40 games every week according to NCAA football point spread experts. There is just no hiding how bad the SMU defense was last year according to NCAA point spread experts. They ranked 118th in total yards allowed and in points allowed according to NCAA point spread stats.
