Oklahoma Is #1 Team In College Football Bet Them Now At 12-1 To Win It All
With all due respect to Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and LSU - the 1-2-3-4 ranked teams in the national polls - my figures grade out the 5th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners as the best college football team in the country but a margin of 2-3 points. The 3-0 Sooners have crushed their opponents, Houston, 49-31, South Dakota, 70-14 and UCLA, 43-14, and did not work up a sweat in any of the outings.
The Sooners, who are off this week and host Texas Tech next Saturday, lead the nation in total offense, averaging 676.7 yards per game. That's nothing new for the high-powered offense but, what a change on defense. Last season Oklahoma ranked 114th in total defense and 101st in scoring defense in the more than 150 Division I teams. This season, they are ranked 46th and 58th in those spots.
Throw in the fact Oklahoma has the top-ranked quarterback in the country, Alabama transfer Jalen Hurts, who has already won a national championship as the Crimson Tide starter, has never been better. He has a quarterback rating of 250.20, has completed 80% of his passes, and also leads the Sooners in rushing, averaging 124.33 yards per game.
The team is one of the quickest and fastest in college football, has a very physical and aggressive offensive line, returns nine defensive starters from last season and brings it full bore every single game, giving every sign of a team determined to go the distance.
The 2019 edition of Oklahoma is much better than the one that went 12-1 during the regular season in 2018 (the only loss was to Texas by three points, 48-45) and which lost to Alabama, 45-34, in the playoffs. I think the Sooners will go the distance and you can still get a futures bet at 12-1 odds they will win the national championship. Send it in.
Decline In Quality Of Play In NFL Continues As QB Injuries And Inept Officiating Reaches Crisis Level…Even Tom Brady Agrees
The National Football League is taking a major hit in its quality of play and one ask to ask if the front-office suits can/will do anything about it. First there is the issue of major injuries to starting quarterback, followed by obvious and growing ineptness of the officials, despite the ability to review most decisions. First, the quarterback issue:
- Pittsburgh Steelers lost long-time starter Ben Roethlisberger for the season with a severe elbow injury. His replacement will be Mason Rudolph, a second-year player from Oklahoma State.
- New Orleans Saints lost long-time starter Drew Brees is out until at least late November after undergoing thumb surgery. He will be replaced by Teddy Bridgewater, a competent backup.
- Jacksonville Jaguars lost starting quarterback Nick Foles, who previously as a backup led Philadelphia to a Super Bowl championship, for maybe the season with a broken collarbone. His place as been taken by rookie Gardner Minshew (Washington State) who thus far looks like the best first year QB in NFL.
- New York Jets are playing without promising starter, second-year man Sam Darnold, who has been sidelined indefinitely with a case of mono. Luke Falk, third man on the depth chart, takes over. He too is a second-year player from Washington State.
- Carolina Panthers do not have a clue when starting quarterback Cam Newton will be healthy enough to be effective. Meantime, he has been replaced by untested second-year man, Kyle Allen who played his college ball at Houston.
- New York Giants pulled the plug on QB Eli Manning (two Super Bowls) this week and replaced him with rookie Daniel Jones, the number six pick in the draft, who has shown promise Into the twilight zone they go.
As for the incompetent officiating displays that have all bettors wondering what's going on, and why the inconsistency from one game to the next, even the players are getting vocal. New England quarterback Tom Brady used social media to complain about the state of officiating during the Thursday night game between the Tennessee Titans-Jacksonville Jaguars. He said, "I'm turning off this game. I can't watch these ridiculous penalties." Former fellow QB Kurt Warner piped in and agreed.
What is happening is ridiculous. All at once officials are the stars of the game, dropping the flag anytime a player blinks and eye or spits. In the Thursday night game, 15 penalties were called in the first half, including seven offensive holding calls. A total of 20 were called during the contest.
This comes on the heels of a record-breaking two-week stretch on which 63 more offensive holding penalties have been called - a 77.8% increase over the same time frame last year. What makes all this a joke, most offensive lineman could be charged with holding on every play. The form contact takes will at some point in the block appear to be holding when slow-motion review will show it was nothing close to that. As Brady also noted, Incompetent officials are changing the outcome of games, killing drives and making winners losers and vice versa.
All eyes will be on this this weekend.
THIS WEEK'S COLLEGE BEST BET
Central Florida Knights (3-0) -11 by 21-24 over PITTSBURGH PANTHERS (1-2) - There is no college football team that is more dangerous than one that has a chip on its shoulder and comes to prove itself in every single game it plays. Central Florida is one of those teams, standing 28-1 over the past two seasons and still battling for respect. While UCF has muscled its way into the minds of those who believe the only good teams come from the power conferences, they are again being disrespected with a #16 national ranking, while deserving a spot in the Top 10. The Knights are a team loaded with blue-chip talent, depth, speed, quickness and that hidden incentive to embarrass every team they can. They have every single edge over this mediocre Pittsburgh team, except the home field, and should destroy the latter. Begins at 3:30 EDT and will be televised on ABC or ESPN2.
THIS WEEK'S NFL BEST BET
Los Angeles Rams (2-0) -3 by 9-10 over CLEVELAND BROWNS (1-1) - The Cleveland Browns, despite all the hype - appear to me to be an average NFL team - and most certainly face the acid test tonight when they host the Los Angeles Rams, a team many think will win the Super Bowl. The Rams have a big edge in the quarterback department - Jared Goff vs. the Browns' Baker Mayfield and in the rushing game, where the Rams Todd Gurley vs. Cleveland's Nick Chub. I also like the way the Los Angeles defense has practiced this week and believe it is primed to show its true power in this one. Begins at 8:20 EDT and will be televised on NBC (Home Team In CAPS)
