    $2 million home loan that he would not have to repay should he remain FAU's coach through the
    2021 season. Kiffin purchased a $2.1 million home in NE Boca Raton last May. The 2021 season would
    be his 5th with the school. Also, the terms of the deal call for FAU to forgive 20 percent of the loan
    with each passing year. Should Kiffin leave after the 2018 season, he would need to repay Florida
    Atlantic $1.2 million of the loan in addition to his $750,000 buyout. Kiffin's $1.35 million base com-
    pensation package makes him the highest paid coach in C-USA.

    Anyone believe Lane will coach at Florida Atlantic through the 2021 season? I don't.
    Agree, Kiffin is gone - probably after this season. He likely lands a very high profile job as well. LSU would be a great landing spot - he'd butt heads w/ Saban and would make things very interesting in the SEC.

    Florida: The Gators will probably be favored in 9 of 12 games this season, with just one
    double-digit underdog spot (Georgia) and five games with single digit margins. Replacing
    an ineffective strength and conditioning program should cut down on injuries and help
    fortify Gators' linemen. Ole Miss transfer WR Van Jefferson and a healthy backfield give
    Florida an impressive collection of skill players. Run defense against good teams is a big
    concern, and the Gators are a year away from above average FBS quarterback play.

    Sidenote: Florida is 1-6 against the spread after playing Georgia. They will play Missouri
    on November 3rd after the Dawgs this season.

    LSU: It's hard to find more than 25 teams that should be favored over the Tigers during
    the 2018 season. But the schedule is BRUTAL. LSU faces seven teams ranked in the pre-
    season top 30. Fall a little short of expectations and the Tigers could need to beat Texas
    A&M in the finale just to make a bowl game. The defense has a chance to be a Top 10
    unit nationally. But the offense will need to rely on the passing game, a problem area lately.

    Sidenote: LSU is 6-0 against the spread before playing Alabama. They will host Mississippi
    State October 20th before Bama this season.

    Ole Miss: The Rebels schedule features three automatic home wins and three winnable games
    away versus Texas Tech, at Arkansas and at Vanderbilt. They will be short underdogs against
    South Carolina, making another six win season very plausible. QB Jordan Ta'amu, WR A. J.
    Brown and others can dismantle opposing secondaries. But last year's run defense was totally
    embarrassing, and there's not much optimism that it will improve. Plus, NCAA sanctions and
    transfers have sapped team depth, which could mean trouble over the course of a tough SEC
    season.

    Sidenote: Ole Miss is 8-2 against the spread playing a non-conference opponent at home. Kent
    State, Southern Illinois and UL-Monroe fit the situation this year.

    LSU is in big trouble at the QB position. Half of the four players competing for the starting role left the team yesterday. LSU has a decent offensive line, but little more. They will not score a lot this season. Their defense is not as good as last year's group. Neither LSU or HC Orgeron have been real good in the clutch. This year, the clutch may be to get to 6 wins. Games at Miami, Auburn, Florida and A&M, plus home games against Georgia, Mississippi State, and Alabama (back to back to back with an off week between State and 'Bama) add up to 7 very possible losses.

    did rank No. 1 in turnover margin. New quarterback Tyler Waal is slated to run what is hope-
    fully an improved unit. Thanks to a potent defense and manageable schedule, Wyoming
    should earn a bowl bid. Anything more than that will hinge on the offense ability to improve
    and the defense continuing to play at an elite level.

    Sidenote: Wyoming led all FBS teams in turnover margin and turnovers gained last season.

    Sidenote: Wyoming is 7-0 against the spread before playing Fresno State. (@Hawaii, Oct. 6)

    Do you have an opinion on the Wyoming VS New Mexico ST game in week 1
    Line is Wyoming -4.5

    New Mexico State is 4-2 as a home dog in the past two seasons. Wyoming is 1-4-1 as an away favorite during that time. Caviat emptor.

    Good question Mike. The line opened at 5 and is now down to 4 in some shops. My system has Wyoming -13.5
    but I don't fully trust it until after three games have been played. Both teams had winning records last season
    and return about the same number of starters (NMST 15 and Wyo 17). Also, both teams will be breaking in a
    new quarterback. I would lean Wyoming even knowing they are not good Road Favorites but not enough to put
    money on it. I do like the UNDER as the play for this game. It opened at 48.5 and has been bid down to 46/46.5
    depending on which book you look at. New Mexico State has played under 8-0-1 their last 9 home games and
    Wyoming has played under in 6 of their last 8 non-conference games. Both teams breaking in new starters at
    quarterback is also a factor for me.

    I will pass on the side but place a small wager on the Under. Just my take and good luck with your play.

    Mississippi State: The Dan Mullen era at MSU ends, and the start of the Joe Moorhead era begins.
    Mullen's final year in Starkville was another reminder of how far the program had come during his
    nine years with the school. The Bulldogs won nine games for the third time in four seasons and
    appeared in a school record eighth consecutive bowl game. Mullen left Mississippi State in excellent
    shape as the Dogs return 16 starters, including veteran quarterback Nick Fitzgerald and several 1st
    team preseason All-SEC selections. Few new head coaches will walk into as good a situation as Joe
    Moorhead. The former Penn State offensive coordinator inherits a potential 10-win team with talent
    on both sides of the ball. Playing in the tough SEC West is never easy, especially with trips to Bama
    and LSU. A September 29 home date with Mullen's Florida Gators might be the most intriguing game
    on the schedule. In the end, though, anything shy of a New Year's Day Bowl would be a major dis-
    appointment for all Bulldog faithful.

    S.F. Austin.....@Kansas State.....Louisiana.....@Kentucky.....Florida.....Auburn.....@LSU.....Texas A&M
    …..Louisiana Tech.....@Alabama.....Arkansas.....@Ole Miss

    Sidenote: Mississippi State is 7-0 against the spread in the second of back-to-back home games.
    Auburn (Oct. 6) and La Tech (Nov. 3) fit the situation this season.
