    The ten new Power 5 coaches are in a difficult situation, to put it mildly. These
    coaches are trying to navigate the lock-down, no football world of the pandemic,
    preparing for a season while not knowing when it will begin. Hiring an educating
    a staff, learning the roster, players and administration to meet, especially new
    signees and begin work on future recruiting classes. Add in limited to no spring
    practice and these guys find themselves between a rock and a hard place. Are
    they at a disadvantage? Yes. Are they worth attention early on for a wagering
    man? Yes.

    Jimmy Lake - Washington - 8-5 (2019 record)
    Lane Kiffin - Ole Miss - 4-8
    Mike Norvell - Florida State - 6-7
    Dave Amanda - Baylor - 11-3
    Eli Drinkwitz - Missouri - 6-6
    Jeff Hafley - Boston College - 6-7
    Mike Leach - Mississippi State - 6-7
    Sam Pittman - Arkansas - 2-10
    Mel Tucker - Michigan State - 7-6
    Karl Dorrell - Colorado - 5-7

    IF and when we have a season, it will be a wild one and these new coaches will be
    in the middle of it. Welcome your comments....

    Jimmy Lake, for one, has been in the Washington program since 2014, not a big learning curve there. Tucker being hired so late has the biggest hill to climb.
    Throw in Dorrell too at CU, very late hire.

    IF I knew there was to be a complete as scheduled season my money would be on Mich St under 4.5 wins. BIG IF!!
    Northwestern owns MSU at East Lansing although Fitzgerld has a history of slow starts. Still I believe Wildcats win in EL.

    I would also favor the under knowing Michigan State plays eleven Power 5 schools during their 12 game regular season schedule.
    Add new coach and all the other stuff going on and the Spartans have a tough road ahead. Michigan State is one of four schools
    that play 11 Power 5 teams this season.
