Eye of the Hurricanes
Above all the Miami Hurricanes had one of the most stunning rises and falls in NCAA Football betting history. In his second season on the job Mark Richt led his alma mater to a 10-0 start in 2017. Fans returned to fill the stadium with the mania of the 1980’s. As a result, Miami climbed to second in the national rankings. But a 24-14 loss at Pitt changed everything. It was the first of nine losses in Miami’s next 16 games. Following a lackluster 35-3 defeat to Wisconsin in the Pinstripe Bowl Richt retired.
A New U
Miami defensive coordinator Manny Diaz replaced Richt. In view of his being the son of a former Miami mayor does Diaz get a lot of love. His defenses became famous for the “turnover chain.” Diaz has been charged with jumpstarting the Miami program with much needed energy. Most important of all he is supposed to upgrade The U’s recruiting. In short gamblers have little to go with or against with Diaz.
A Legend Retires
Kansas State’s Hall of Fame coach Bill Snyder has retired. Oklahoma Hall of Famer Barry Switzer proclaimed Snyder “Coach of the Century”. Indeed, Snyder transformed the worst program in college football history into one of the best. Of great concern is that Snyder is the only man to attain online betting success at Manhattan. Chris Klieman arrives after winning four 1-AA national titles at North Dakota State.
Miles to Walk for New Head Jayhawk
Extending the big-name changes is Les Miles taking over at Kansas. Of course, “The Mad Hatter” is best known from his days at LSU. While he won a national title and recruited well there, Miles was derided for his plodding offenses. Kansas isn’t a recruiting magnet school. Miles was desperate for a job. The fact he took this one is proof of that.
Others to Follow
Equally important is Dana Holgorsen departing West Virginia for Houston. Neal Brown replaces Holgorsen as head Mountaineer. Mack Brown will make a second coming at North Carolina. In the same way Matt Wells takes over Texas Tech.
Matchup to Watch
In this situation Mack Brown and Dan Holgorsen have the best NCAA Football Betting chances for success. Each is at a school that may be down but has the potential to win. Day, Miles, and Klieman faces daunting challenges.
