The Rams finally got rid of head coach Sonny Lubick. NCAA football betting stats show that the Rams were 5-5 in terms of over/under bet NCAA football betting numbers. Here is a look at more NCAA football number from the 2007 Colorado State Rams.
NCAA college football betting will change now that Lubick is gone. Years ago he had Colorado State at the top of the Mountain West but recent seasons have been very forgettable under Lubick. The 2007 offensive player of the year for Colorado State according to NCAA football betting stats was running back Gartrell Johnson. The defensive player of the year according to NCAA football betting stats was linebacker Jeff Horinek.
The 2008 season holds promise simply for the fact that Colorado State moves past Lubick. The new head coach will be Steve Fairchild, who was the Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator. The infusion of some new leadership should immediately help Colorado State in many areas. The Rams have Johnson and Kyle Bell returning so the running game should be solid according to bet NCAA football experts. Four offensive linemen also return according to bet NCAA football experts. The team will have to replace quarterback Caleb Hanie but that may not be as difficult as it appears.
The biggest cause for concern according to NCAA football betting experts is improving a defense that was terrible. They never kept the team in games unless the offense outscored the other team. The defense was 84th in points allowed according to NCAA football betting stats. The huge problem was against the run as they were 109th in the nation stopping the run according to NCAA football betting stats.
The offense just wasn’t good enough to make up for that, ranking 70th in the country in total yards according to NCAA football betting stats. They were 76th in points scored according to NCAA football betting stats. Those numbers could improve during the 2008 season.
