West Virginia Coach Has Head Screwed On Right!
College Football is front and center this Thursday night as two Top 5 teams collide in Louisville, Kentucky, home to the 2006 Breeders' Cup this Saturday at Churchill Downs.
#3 ranked West Virginia led by Coach Rich Rodriguez and # 5 Louisville led by Bobby Petrino will collide at Papa John stadium and something has to give. The Mountaineers average 319 yards on the ground, while the Cardinals relinquish just 74.9, so it will be evident very early, who is controlling the line of scrimmage.
This past Monday in the NFL the Patriots went into Minnesota knowing that the Vikings are tough against the run, so Coach Bill Bellichick had Brady heaving the ball, all over the field. Could Rich follow suit here.
When Americans decide to place a bet on the internet, the greater majority turn to www.sportsbook.com, as they know that they will receive the ultimate in customer service. That being said, Betting is now available on this huge Big East tilt and the home side is presently favored by -1 ˝ points.
What this really means is that the linemakers see West Virginia as the better team, as normally playing at home is worth 3 points, yet they have the Cardinals lower then that.
Did you know that the Big East pays schools money according to where they finish in the standings? The difference between first and second is literally millions of dollars and Coach Rodriguez is putting pressure on the school president, to reinvest the earnings back in the Football program.
The powers to be have made it very clear to Rich. Beat Louisville and the bucks are yours!
The point total has been set at 56.5 which suggest that the defenses will be defenseless against the powerful offenses!
