NEW BLOG UPDATE

It’s time to kick off a new football season! College football begins on August 25, so here’s a look at the top teams, starting with my top 21-40. I have the odds to win the NCAA Championship next to team name (if they have odds) and the odds to win their respective conference championship next to that. Let’s get started with teams 40 through 21.

40. Georgia Tech: 50/1 ACC
Returning Starters: 13 (8 offense, 5 defense, 1 QB)
Last Year’s Record: 5-6
Projected Finish: 6-6

The ACC is one of the tougher FBS conferences with Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Miami and a host of equally competent teams. That means Georgia Tech will be up against the wall again this year to produce wins but could eek out 6-6 record and be bowl eligible with some luck. HC Paul Johnson is in rebuild mode and had one of the better recruiting classes to build that foundation upon. The defense is mediocre, ranking somewhere between 50 to 66 for the last five years. Taquon Marshall returns at QB after a good 2017 season. Marshall worked on his passing this offseason and with eight returners on his side of the ball should be further improved for 2018.

Was the risk of making these moves worth it and will they pay off?

The Minnesota Vikings lack of confidence in Case Keenum throughout the 2017 season carried over to the offseason as they did not offer the quarterback a contract.  Then they turn around and pay huge money to Kurt Cousins, who has never won a playoff game.

I always felt throughout the 2017 season, that the Vikings disrespect of Case and lack of loyalty was disgraceful. Now they roll with Kurt, who I happen to like. But remember there were plenty of Viking players in the locker room last season that did not care for the way Case was treated.

I believe the Vikes are the best team in the NFC North and I hope there is no carry over for the team execs letting go of Keenum, Bradford and Bridgewater.
