No notes for slide


  • 1. South East Conference 2010-2011 College Football Season Preview
  • 2. Alabama Crimson Tide
    • Challenge: Defense
    • 3. The Tide lost a number of key contributors from their number 2 ranked defense. Talented recruits need to step up.
    • 4. Watchlist: Mark Ingram
    • 5. Last year's Heisman trophy winner gets a second shot with basically the same o-line.
    • 6. Betting Rating: Sell
    • 7. Too much hype and talent around this team to bet on them. They are +100 to win the SEC. If their defense struggles, bet against them.
  • 8. Arkansas Razorbacks
    • Challenge: Defense
    • 9. For this team to compete, the defense that gave up over 400 yards per game last year has to step up and they didn't add many defensive recruits.
    • 10. Watchlist: Ryan Mallett
    • 11. Mallett had 3,627 yards and 30 TDs passing last season, but only 55% completion rate.
    • 12. Betting Rating: Hold
    • 13. The Razorbacks won't surprise anyone on offense or defense. They are +800 to win the SEC because their d. can't compete.
  • 14. Auburn Tigers
    • Challenge: Quarterback
    • 15. It looks like Cameron Newton has won the starting job, but he still has a lot to prove.
    • 16. Watchlist: Onterrio McCalebb
    • 17. McCalebb had 600 yards last year playing behind Ben Tate. He's ready for prime-time.
    • 18. Betting Rating: Buy
    • 19. It's risky with an unproven quarterback, but their running should be better than anyone expects. They are +500 to win the SEC.
  • 20. Florida Gators
    • Key Challenge: Defense
    • 21. A lot of turnover on defense and a new coordinator.
    • 22. Watchlist: John Brantley
    • 23. The Gators send a traditional pocket passer to replace Tebow at QB.
    • 24. Betting Rating: Buy
    • 25. The turnover on this team should scare bettors away, but Urban Meyer always has the best recruits and is an excellent coach. They are +250 to win the SEC.
  • 26. Georgia Bulldogs
    • Key Challenge: Switch to 3-4
    • 27. The Bulldogs' defense left much to be desired last season. At least they can't get much worse.
    • 28. Watchlist: A.J. Greene
    • 29. The only consistent performer left on the Bulldogs offense. Competition at QB means they should find someone who can get him the ball.
    • 30. Betting Rating: Buy
    • 31. Heavy competition at QB and RB means this team should be better than most teams that lose so many good players while switching systems.
  • 32. Kentucky Wildcats
    • Key Challenge: Defense
    • 33. The Wildcats lost a lot of players on defense and they even lost a planned replacement
    • 34. Watchlist: Randall Cobb
    • 35. He's not just the leading receiver, but he gets yards running out of the shotgun.
    • 36. Betting Rating: Buy
    • 37. They are not getting much respect at +3000 and their offense is good enough to carry them to a few covers.
  • 38. LSU Tigers
    • Key Challenge: O-Line
    • 39. The o-line was too small and inexperienced last season. This season, they'll just be too small.
    • 40. Watchlist: Kelvin Sheppard
    • 41. He led the Tigers defense with 110 tackles last season. Don't be surprise to see him do it again.
    • 42. Betting Rating: Buy
    • 43. One of the best defenses and an excellent recruiting class give this team excellent potential to surprise.
  • 44. Mississippi State Bulldogs
    • Key Challenge: Scoring
    • 45. The Bulldogs lost their only real play-maker and don't have a clear-cut number one QB.
    • 46. Watchlist: Pernell Mcphee
    • 47. Mcphee led the team in sacks last season and, with most of the defense intact, should be a menace to quarterbacks all season.
    • 48. Betting Rating: Buy
    • 49. But only if you're betting under. Their offense will be painful to watch, but the defense should inflict some pain.
  • 50. Ole Miss Rebels
    • Key Challenge: Quarterback
    • 51. If Nathan Stanley doesn't work out at QB, the Rebels have little in the way of alternatives.
    • 52. Watchlist: Pass Rush
    • 53. Simply put, the Ole Miss front-four and linebacking corps will make the secondary look good with all of the pressure they put on QBs.
    • 54. Betting Rating: Hold
    • 55. Their defense will be excellent except for a few game-breaking plays. This inconsistency makes them a hold.
  • 56. South Carolina Gamecocks
    • Key Challenge: O-Line
    • 57. Last in rushing and sacks for 3-straight years, the new o-line coach can only help.
    • 58. Watchlist: Stephen Garcia
    • 59. Garcia threw for 2,862 yards and 17 touchdowns with an o-line made of cardboard cutouts. Imagine if they give him some time.
    • 60. Betting Rating: Buy
    • 61. They have a talented defense and even a slight improvement on the o-line will greatly improve the offense.
  • 62. Tennessee Volunteers
    • Key Challenge: Turmoil
    • 63. Lane Kiffin left and some key players may not be returning. The new coach should help the program in the long run.
    • 64. Watchlist: Tyler Bray
    • 65. The 6'6” freshman QB looks to have stolen the starting job. As he matures, he will be very dangerous.
    • 66. Betting Rating: Sell
    • 67. They have a lot of talent left on the team, but they need a coach to stay for more than a year.
  • 68. Vanderbilt Commodores
    • Key Challenge: Passing
    • 69. The Commodores were 119 th in passing efficiency last season and haven't done anything to address the problem.
    • 70. Watchlist: Warren Norman
    • 71. Norman averaged 5.5 yards per carry despite everyone knowing Vandy had no legitimate passing option.
    • 72. Betting Rating: Hold
    • 73. The Commodores can't pass and can't stop the run. Watch for some value later in the season.
