PJP Over/Under Game – FIU

We put out a list of season-long over/unders last week and then the starting running back was suspended and the backup QB quit the team.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you are new, every week we’re going to post over/under “bets.”  We will be tracking picks on the website so please register if you haven’t already.

For the uninitiated, the standard over/under bet is on the total number of points in a game. Basically, a number is set that represents what someone has determined is a likely amount and you choose whether you think the total will be “over” the set number or “under.”  Our over/unders will generally be a little more in-depth than simple “total points.”

We’ll keep track of how everyone does over the course of the season.  The contest will include this season-long over/under, the 12 games, and hopefully a bowl game, after which we will crown a 2018 champion.

Let’s get rolling.

The Impact (or lack thereof) of the New Fair Catch Rule

In an effort to decrease the number of kickoff returns, the NCAA Football Rules Committee has approved a rule that turns any fair catch inside the 25-yard line on a kickoff into a touchback. The offense would then start their possession at the 25-yard line.

The intent is to make the game safer and it should be safer although by how much remains to be seen. As far as an impact on Indiana, it probably won’t be huge.
