Hi Brad, just heard about this video and your extremely early College rankings on the CBB Dreampod so thought I'd sign up to say hello and that I'm enjoying your work ...
Some interesting points made on there, particularly intrigued to hear about the potential offensive coaching upgrade. Buckeyes certainly looked like a team that wasn't maximizing its talent at times last season.
I'm a relative novice to CFB (and hoops, I live in Ireland and widespread TV coverage really only became available the last 5 years or so) but I've had two futures bets already this year ! Really just for an interest for myself next season as I'll be watching a lot of the games.
The first is LSU at 14/1 based mostly on what I've heard about their coaching hires, as they always struck me as a horrendously coached offense for the talent they recruit every year !
I've also bet Washington at 66/1 as I was surprised the price was so big and I know Browning and many of their key guys are due to return this Autumn/Fall. The PAC 12 will be a lot tougher this year admittedly but Clay Helton could contribute to blowing USC's hopes again early judging by his two seasons so far ?
Just checked oddschecker and Paddy Power bookmakers over here currently quoting Ohio State at 12/1 ! Will definitely be looking to grab a piece of that for my portfolio as soon as possible.
G'luck - Alan
