College Football Betting – 2007 UAB Blazers Preview

College football betting players know that the 2006 UAB Blazers were a disappointment going 3-9 straight up and 3-7-1 against the football betting line.

College football betting players see that the Blazers get new head coach Neil Callaway. He spent the last six seasons running the Georgia offense. Quarterback Sam Hunt returns after missing much of last season with injuries. College football betting players know that the return of Nick Coon could help the passing game as he missed the entire 2006 season.

NCAA Football betting fans see that Sylvester Mencer, who caught 31 passes for 400 yards last year, also returns. NCAA College football betting players know that the Blazers lost their top three rushers from a year ago and must find someone to run the ball. College football betting players know that Brandon Jeffries is the lone returning starter on the defensive line. Linebacker Joe Henderson returns to lead the linebacking crew. College football betting players know that the secondary has a lot of experience but that may not be good considering they were terrible in 2006.

College football betting players know that last year the Blazers lost six games by eight or less points. Football betting players know that Blazer coach Watson Brown is gone and that may actually help. He did nothing at UAB the last couple of years. College football betting players know that a few years ago UAB had quarterback Darrell Hackney and he was the reason they won, not Brown. Football betting fans know that it will be up to Callaway to turn things around for UAB.

College football betting players see that the schedule has a lot of road games early for UAB but the middle has the Blazers home for four of five games. College football betting players know that the Blazers do have to face Houston and Tulsa from the West and three East games (East Carolina, Memphis and Marshall) on the road. Football betting fans see that a 1-3 non-conference record is probable with losses to Michigan State, Florida State and Mississippi State and a home win against Alcorn State. College football betting players know that the best offensive player is up for grabs but it might be senior WR Willie Edwards. College football betting players see that the best defensive player is senior FS Will Dunbar.

College football betting players know that the Blazers have had only one winning season in the last five and it is unlikely the 2007 season will change that stat. College football betting players see that the Blazers did lose a lot of close games last season so perhaps they can win four games this year. College football betting fans believe the key game for UAB may come in October as they host Tulane. That may be a game they can win in the conference.
