Bad news, sounds like could be some trouble in T-Town as Jalen Hurts expresses some dissatisfaction with team communication with him. Not surprising in the times we live, his father is speaking out to, it may be a forgone conclusion that Hurts will be a grad transfer after this season. Adding to the story, Saban had said a couple months ago he had "no idea" if Hurts would be on the roster for week 1. Rare for such an issue to arise on a Nick Saban team with as much influence and control he has over the players and the media.

Good news, Yahoo's Fantasy App has pick'em leagues capability this year!

I just got tickets to Wisconsin vs uh, New Mexico. Haven't been to a UW football game since I was a sophomore in college, used to live right next door to the stadium. Figured I'd go since I'll be in town for my parents' 50th anniversary. Camp Randall always has a great scene, we always partied with the alumni as they wandered through their old hood (or parked on our lawn), fed them some brats and beers so I guess it's my turn now

Yes, roles reversed! Sounds like a great time!

3 weeks until the first Thursday of the season!

Just looked at the line on the Michigan / Notre Dame game. Opening line was ND by seven. Now it's 2.5. That's quite a swing.

I thought I saw Michigan was always favored in that one. What site do you use?

The first post of this thread. Unless I read it wrong I thought it said ND -7. Not sure why Michigan would be favored on the road in that one. Don't know.

I still can't bet futures for whatever reason. I want to bet the over / under on a few teams.

They did have 7 but got pounded and they moved it to 1. Odds makers whiffed on that one. Usually early season opening numbers have low max bets to protect the books if the market finds an error.

Michigan is now - 2.5. If it moves to 3 before the game I'll bite and take the points. Not sure how a line can move 9.5 points within a few weeks though.

Curious: What do you mean by "got pounded"? By what? Money moving? Obviously not a game since nobody has played yet. Sure seems like a lot for a line to move that much when no games have been played yet. At least ND has a QB with some semblance of a track record. Hopefully Michigan's new guy can do something I guess.

Yeah, "pounded" meaning the sportsbook online or in Vegas took alot of action on one side.

There is another website I frequent for college football called capping the game and people were posting there people's twitter and stuff on how large bets would be made on certain win totals or games were the players/bettors obviously found a flaw or weakness in the early number. The sportsbook hopes to limit their exposure on the early numbers because people who bet for a living or are really good at it can have a huge advantage in knowing personnel and what a number should be, so when the book releases a number vastly different from their's they pounce.

I do think Michigan should be favored at Notre Dame and expect them to win.

ND does return Wimbush as well as Book, but Wimbush is going to have to elevate his game to a much higher level this year for ND to be more successful. And while generally you can expect players to get better with time and experience, it is going to be hard for him because he loses two great OL protecting him. ND's OL will still be good, but losing two first round DCs you'd expect them to be down a notch atleast early in the season. Then Wimbush has also lost alot of weapons around him, RB Adams is gone, #1 WR St Brown is gone (2 of top 3 receivers gone), so more is going to be expected of Wimbush and based on his poor passing last year, it could be difficult for him to come out of the gate and just carry the team on his shoulders.

Couple that with Michigan's D, which is to me, one of the top 5 Ds in the country. ND's O is going to face significant challenges in this game I think.

Michigan's O is not without question of it's own. Patterson is good player from Ole Miss, but coming to a new team with a new system and getting chemistry with his new teammates can't be understated. And playing on the road vs ND's solid D adds to that as well. I think Patterson having played against good Ds in the SEC in hostile environments will help him. And then looking at the Michigan offense as a whole, and contrasting it with Notre Dame, Michigan returns all their key skill players, while ND is replacing them. I expect big years from Tarik Black and People-Jones in their second season now. It is going to all come down to Michigan's OL which has under achieved and is perhaps lacking on talent.

Michigan's offense at times last year was simply bad. Tons of sacks allowed, threw more INTs than TD passes, bad ypp, ppg, Michigan's O was one of the worst in the Big Ten last year. I expect that to change this season as long as Patterson adapts well. Combine that with Michigan's D which I think will be even better this year, having potential to be among the nation's best for sure makes for a team that should be as good as 10-2, if not even better. They get it started week 1 with a W.

Not to call you out but another curious question; if you think Michigan is going to win, did you bet on them getting seven?

I wish! My favorite and most exciting bets are money lining underdogs to win straight up, especially finding ones getting a TD or more. I would've loved some of that action!! But I do not have any online accounts and don't do any early betting.

On another Big Ten note, after the Urban Meyer thing, now we have the story at Maryland unfolding. Just wow. To think that some of the coaching practices may've caused one of the players death...wow. Not to take the focus off of the seriousness there, Maryland over 5.5 was one of my most favorite win total plays. Since I do not play anything early, probably 2 weeks out from getting those in yet, with this coming to light and everything that comes with a situation like this it makes me reconsider playing that one.

Yeah and apparently a few of his staff were part of it. Didn't that kind of happen several years ago with Craig James' kid I want to say with Mike Leach?

I have a buddy (young guy) who likes to bet. He'll purchase an extra half point on a game. Say, take it from 7 to 7.5 or the other way if you want the underdog. Probably wouldn't make sense for a baseball game but it could make sense for a football game.

Yup, you're in.

If you have any questions once the picks come up for week 1 let us know. One thing that has been confusing before is some of the games on there might be a game like Texas A&M against Northwestern State. NW St is a IAA/FCS team and yahoo does not post point spreads for those matchups so it will just say 'off' where the spread would normally be. That just means you pick the straight up winner.

We are dropping everyone's worst week, so don't worry if you have a bad week or forget to get the games in. You get a mulligan.

So 5 of us now. Lots of past players need to sign up yet. 2.5 weeks away til first full weekend starts!

Pretty sure I'm out too. Both local sports accountants have gone to handling things online through a website offshore. Not sure I'm at all interested in doing that. So, likely won't take the time to make picks all through the season.

But this way, there will be a new champ this year.
