CBSSports.com: With spread offenses still dominating college football, coaches wonder whether they'll ever be stopped

 

Good reading. Last season Alabama gave up the 3rd most yards per game (352.2) of any national champion dating back to 1936. What qualifies as good defense has changed. Also the 2009 rule change regarding downfield pass-blocking that gave rise to the RPO was a big game-changer in favor of offenses.

 

The best defensive strategy now is stop the run, limit explosive plays, create turnovers, and run an offense that controls the clock. Opposing offenses that are patient will still do their damage in the short passing game, but you'll give yourself the best chance to outscore them.

Wisconsin > Michigan

Iowa > Nebraska

 

Texas and USC have underachieved too much of late. But I’m guessing they are there for their brand name. Same as Michigan. Nebraska is way removed from relevancy....why not put Miami or FSU in if you’re gonna let Nebraska in?

DraftKings.com has released their over/under win totals for all FBS teams in 2021.

 

Alabama and Clemson lead the pack at 11.5, followed by Ohio State and Oklahoma at 11.

 

Kansas is in the basement at 1. If you are looking for a bet that simply won't be a loser, the Jayhawks might be it, since they do play South Dakota to open the season (not to be confused with South Dakota St, who were just the FCS runner-up). But I think it's unlikely you'll do better than a push.

Good read from Pete Thamel, and another lesson in unintended consequences for the NCAA to deal with.
