There were more ups and downs in the college football betting action last year than for just about any other team in NCAA football betting. But with the loss several key players on both sides of the ball, this college football betting season looks as though there will likely be more ‘downs’ than ‘ups’ once the NCAA football betting action gets underway.
The Maize and Blue finished a very disappointing 9-4 last season after featuring some of the best offensive talent in college football betting. After humiliating losses at home to D1-AA power Appalachian State and an absolute drubbing by Oregon most NCAA football betting odds experts wrote this team off after the started the college football betting season off 0-3. But the team charged back and made a strong bid for a BCS college football betting bowl bid if it had been able to knock off arch-rival Ohio State; but of course it didn’t and it ended the college football betting season ranked 18th in the land.
This year the prospect of finishing 9-4 looks much more daunting as the offensive unit was devastated by the NFL and the 2008 college football betting season looks to be more a re-building season than anything else. Gone are QB Chad Henne, RB Mike Hart, WR Mario Manningham and OT Jake Long -to name a few of the players who carried this team in the NCAA football betting action last season.
But these college losses were hardly the biggest of the college football betting off-season. Coach Lloyd Carr’s departure made way for one of the more acrimonious coaching switches in college football betting when Rich Rodriguez, late of West Virginia, took over one of the most storied programs in college football betting. That change alone will likely take some time for the players to absorb and is yet another reason why college football betting fans are skeptical of the team’s chances this year.
At best this team will finish the college football betting season with seven to eight wins. It’s hard to imagine the ‘option’ style offense succeeding in Big 10 college football betting, especially without the right type of mobile QB that Rodriguez is accustomed to.
