UMass: UMass hopes it has the right guy in Walt Bell

January 5, 2019

When UMass announced the hiring of new head football coach Walt Bell on December 3rd, the move was met with some hesitation. At 34, Bell is the youngest head coach at the FBS level. Despite his age, the Middle Tennessee State grad has an impressive resume. Mostly recently he served as offensive coordinator at Florida State under Willie Taggert. Prior to that, Bell was the offensive coordinator at Arkansas State…

November 11, 2018

Trevor Lawrence will face a stiff test at B.C. This is the last week before the rivalry games kick in. It is a good week to bet because it will get harder from here. Here are my picks for week 11. Ole Miss at Texas A&M (-13, 67.5): Texas A&M has struggled on the road but they have been tough at home in Jimbo Fisher’s first season. They should cover…

Clemson at Florida State (+17.5, 48.5): I still have issues with Clemson’s offense despite the fact that they having been playing better. The think the Tigers will win but an improved Florida State will come to…


College Football: Week 8 Picks Vs. The Spread

October 20, 2018

Michigan, Michigan State is the top match up of the weekend. There are some quality money making match ups this weekend. Here are my top games and picks for week 8 of the college football season. Auburn at Ole Miss (+3.5, 63.5): Both programs have fallen off since the start of the season. Auburn is a mess right now. They cannot run the ball and their defense is struggling. I’m…


College Football: Ten Thoughts On Week 7

October 19, 2018

Laviska Shenault cost himself a shot at the Heisman after the Buffaloes lost to USC last weekend.  Some thoughts on Week 7 of the college football season. 1. Texas clearly experienced an Oklahoma hangover but in the end, they were able to beat an improved Baylor team. 2. Notre Dame also experienced a hangover against Pitt. Quarterback Ian Book struggled in the first half. The mark of a good team is finding…

College Football: Week 6 Picks Versus the Spread

October 6, 2018

Chad Morris will have his Hogs ready against Alabama today. My picks for today. There are a lot of jump ball games this week so pick wisely. DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Research is key this week. Northwestern at Michigan State (-10, 43.5): Sparty hasn’t lived up to the hype but neither has Northwestern. -10 is a big number but I think Michigan State covers. Northwestern struggles to score points. Maryland at Michigan (-17.5, 47.5):…


College Football: Ten Thoughts On The Week That Was

October 3, 2018

Here ten thoughts I have on Week 5 of the college football season. 1. I often wonder if Chip Kelly regrets taking the UCLA job. I don’t care what anyone says. Being 0-4 has to hurt Kelly’s pride. 2. No I don’t think coaches should put their hands on their players. Jimbo Fisher was in the wrong. Should he be reprimanded? Yes. Fired? No! That’s foolish. 3. I can’t believe…


College Football: Week 5 Picks Against the Spread

September 30, 2018

Ok folks. Here are the games I am betting on in week 5. There are some big time match ups on the docket. West Virginia at Texas Tech (+3.5, 73): I must admit, I was wrong about the Red Raiders. They actually play complementary football. Their defense has been terrific and that will be the difference against Will Grier and the Mountaineers at home. Syracuse at Clemson (-25.5, 65.5): I…
