Another head coach was fired midseason with Tennessee parting ways with Butch Jones. Below is a quick list of this year's casualties, how the team fared the following game, and overall since the change. The "next game" has produced a 3-1 ATS mark but overall, not a single straight up win and dismal 5-9 ATS mark. Tennessee (+15.5) plays host to LSU this weekend.

Texas Bowl Betting Preview: Kansas State Wildcats vs. Texas A&M Aggies

Kansas State vs. Texas A&M
Texas Bowl - Houston
Wednesday, 6 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Texas A&M -2.5 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Texas A&M -2.5 O/U 57
Recommendation: Under

It's nearly impossible to get involved in a track meet or two playing in the Big XII. Kansas State was the slowest paced team in the league but when given the chance, the Wildcats were able to move the ball and put up big scores. KSU beat Baylor 42-21, Texas Tech 44-38, and lost to Oklahoma State 43-37. Those three teams however were three of the four worst in the Big XII in terms of yards per game allowed in conference play. And despite those three "big" offensive outputs, the Wildcats still averaged less than 400 ypg of total offense and 5.5 ypp in league play.

Texas A&M's defensive numbers aren't strong when compared to some of the elite teams of the SEC but this is still a capable stop unit. In fact, heading into October, the Aggies looked more than capable having held UCLA, Auburn, South Carolina and Arkansas to 19.3 ppg. A&M also held Tennessee to 14 points for three and a half quarters Read more

College Football Betting: Tennessee says it's motivated to play in postseason

12.13.2016     06:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
 For most bowl games, motivation is a key factor. And for most teams, it's common to claim they are motivated. Tennessee is one of those squads as they take on Nebraska in the Music City Bowl. The Volunteers had their sights set on bigger things, most recently the SEC Championship. But an embarrassing loss to rival Vanderbilt in the regular season finale ended that hope. UT will play a Big Ten squad for the third straight year. In 2014 they blew out Iowa 45-28 and last season hammered Northwestern 45-6.


“Some of them don’t want to be here,” Nutt observed. “They want to be someplace else. They’re not mentally focused on this game, this week, playing the University of Minnesota.

“The result was we got beat.”

“Obviously, we did not finish the way we wanted to finish and that’s unacceptable in our program and I take responsibility for that

College Football Handicapping: South Carolina moves forward with two frosh quarterbacks

10.25.2016     10:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Looks like South Carolina is going the youth movement route as senior quarterback Perry Orth has been phased out of what has been a revolving door of starters. Orth didn't play in last week's 34-28 win over UMass as the Gamecocks topped 20 points for the first time this season. Freshmen Jake Bentley and Brandon McIlwain will now battle for playing time moving forward. Bentley started against the Minutemen and is expected to do the same vs. Tennessee.


“I just feel like right now, from an ability standpoint, (Bentley and McIlwain) give us the best opportunity, and they’re just going to keep getting better,” Muschamp said. “Both of them do things equally well, and we’ll continue to rep that way.”

“Competition is my best friend, and those guys are two competitive guys,” Muschamp said. “They are going to go out every single day and battle and support each other. It’s going to be good for the Gamecocks. That’s what I’m looking forward to. We have two good

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Tennessee Volunteers

Alabama at Tennessee
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -10.5 O/U 60
CRIS Current: Alabama -13 O/U 57
Recommendation: Over

The Tennessee defense is in a world of hurt right now, terrible news as they take on the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.  The Vols stop unit has, quite simply, been gutted with key injuries.  They’ve lost Cameron Sutton, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Cortez McDowell from their secondary; Quar’te Sapp and Darrin Kirkland from their linebacking corps and Danny O’Brien from the defensive line.  Sutton, Sapp and O’Brien have all been lost to season ending injuries, losing top playmakers from all three defensive units.

Of that group, only McDowell has a chance to play this week, and even that’s very ‘iffy’.  No surprise, then, that the Vols surrendered ten plays of 20 yards or more in their double overtime loss at Texas A&M last Saturday.  And, after that wild A&M on the heels of the wild Georgia game and the wild Florida game; a Vols defense that hasn’t had a bye yet certainly could use Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Appalachian State Mountaineers at Tennessee Volunteers

Appalachian State at Tennessee
Thursday, 4:30 pm PT - SEC Network
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -22.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Tennessee -21 O/U 59
Recommendation: Tennessee

This will mark the third year in a row the Tennessee Volunteers play a strong mid-major to open the season and thus far, Butch Jones has made sure the Vols passed each test. In 2014, UT beat a 10-win Utah State team 38-7 and last season, cruised past high-powered Bowling Green, 59-30. Last year’s Sun Belt runners-up return 15 starters are a co-betting favorites with Arkansas State to win the conference title. Many think this will be a breakout year for Tennessee as the Vols are currently priced at -125 chalk to win the SEC East and the third betting choice (+420) to win the SEC championship.

Jones’ offense features two incredible playmakers in senior quarterback Joshua Dobbs and junior running back Jalen Hurd. Add to it a strong offensive line as well as talented depth at the skill positions and we have reason to believe the Vols will be able to move the ball with ease. And while Appalachian State will have edges on Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Florida hanging its hat on defense

01.06.2016     08:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Some good quotes from Florida head coach Michael White on his team's strengths and weaknesses. The Gators are the only team in Ken Pom's top 25 outside the top 100 nationally in offensive efficiency. In fact, of the 25 teams, UF ranks 107th (1.06) and the next closest is Purdue at 54th (1.09). Where Florida makes up for it is on the defensive end with the fourth-best defensive efficiency in the country (0.90). But perhaps tonight offers a decent chance for the Gators to put the ball in the bucket. Against its last four power conference opponents, Tennessee allowed 82 (Nebraska), 94 (Butler), 86 (Gonzaga), and 83 (Auburn).


“When we’ve approached games where we’ve spent too much emphasis on offense — where maybe you have guys, again, new to a staff, new to a style, new plays, seven new players — when we’re thinking about scoring, how many shots I can get tonight or how many I can score, certain things like that with an inexperienced team, it has set us up for poor performances in the
