College football betting players will want Shannon to upgrade a pitiful offense. Miami has 16 returning starters with 9 on offense and 7 on defense. College football betting players should know that Patrick Nix is the new offensive coordinator at the University of Miami. He came to Miami after five seasons at Georgia Tech, including the last three as offensive coordinator. It is not like Nix did anything with the Georgia Tech offense but Reggie Ball may have been the problem there as NCAA football betting players know. NCAA College football betting fans saw Miami go 5-3 three years ago in the ACC, 6-2 in 2005 and a pathetic 3-5 last season.
Senior QB Kyle Wright returns, but whether that is good news is up for debate among college football betting fans. He threw 8 TDs and 7 INTs for 1,655 yards while completing 60% of his passes. He was benched the final four games, giving way to junior Kirby Freeman, who was worse (7 TDs, 8 INTs) for college football betting fans. The offense averaged just 116 yards on the ground and 197 yards passing, outscoring opponents by a 19-15 average which is why many college football betting players lost money with the Hurricanes in 2006. The backfield should be good with Javarris James who had 802 yards as a freshman and true freshman Graig Cooper. College football betting players see that the line has potential with two good tackles in Jason Fox and Reggie Youngblood to work around. The Kyle Wright vs. Kirby Freeman quarterback battle will be an ongoing debate as college football betting players watch. Senior WR Lance Leggett (584 yards) and sophomore WR Sam Shields (501) also return.

College football betting players see that Miami’s first road game is at Oklahoma, though they play 4 of their first 5 at home. Road games at Florida State, at Virginia Tech and at Boston College will be tough college football betting games, especially with those last two ending the regular season. Key games for college football betting fans to watch will be those at Florida State and Boston College. Home games against Georgia Tech and Texas A&M could go either way in football betting and may decide what type of bowl game Miami goes to this season.
