You do realize that "the line" has nothing to do with what the professionals think the outcome of the game will be, right?
That is not totally correct.  I do realize they are establishing a line to create action and try to evenly balance that action.  So they really are trying to set a number that will do that.

That then pretty much becomes what the betting public perceives to be the difference between those two teams.  However, folks like Sagarin, Massey, Billingsley, Dunkell, Kambour, Marssee, etc. are putting a number that equates to their feeling of how the game will turn out.

I always thought they started at the point they thought would be the outcome, then adjusted it for even betting.

I mean, when the mob hired DeNiro to run the sportsbooks, they did it because he good at predicting outcomes, not public betting strategies.   8-)

Wrong. There would've been little to no chance Henry was here. Seriously doubt that family would dare put up with BP language and shenanigans. He'd probably be at Georgia.

This years recruiting class is now 18th in the country (though it's still 9th in the SEC).

Still, I would rather have the 18th best national class and be 9th (out of 14) in conference, than be 9th (out of 12) in conference with the 30th best class. That's how things were under both Nutt and Petrino.
I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.

Also, almost everyone currently ahead of us in the rankings have more commits.

I wonder about this.
Why are we so much later signing commits than the others?
Is is a function of our current staff "only" being in place for less than two years?

The other programs above us on that list are currently more established.  Maybe the remaining high star recruits are taking a wait and see approach as to how our season progresses?

And since we are being more selective maybe we're willing to wait to see if we can land them?

Of course this is pure speculation.

If you think you're above failure, you'll always be beneath success.

Maybe we're evaluating the talent we have now to see where we need to focus with our remaining spots.

For all you Walking Dead Fans, SDS posted this and compared the selection comittee to Terminus. Smile!


http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-football/football-friday-free-for-all-harbaugh-smith-walking-dead/

How crazy could it get? Funny you asked, because Christopher Smith of SDS decided to document just how wild it could get. I enjoyed his Walking Dead comparison. I envision the selection committee as the group from Terminus, luring in college football fans from all over with the promise of unity. When we arrive to Terminus, we find Condoleeza Rice grilling up some human meat and Jeff Long carving up some guy’s leg. Damn you Jeff Long! You promised college football harmony, but gave us only death!


Speaking of Jeff Long, a hot discussion right now is whether or not an 0-16 in conference start for Bret Bielema through his first two seasons is acceptable. In most cases, the answer is an emphatic no, but then I remember the days of John L. Smith. How is there not a 30 for 30 underway on John L. Smith? Recent SEC coaches are quite boring in comparison. Here’s a fun fact for you: John L. Smith is NFL QB Alex Smith’s Uncle! The guy has done it all.
