Host Adam Burke joined up with regular guest and sharp handicapper Ralph Michaels on the July 23 edition of BangTheBook Radio to discuss some college football season win totals and conference previews. The guys focused specifically on the Pac-12, Big 12, and Mountain West conferences. The Pac-12 looks competitive, but is there an elite team? The Big 12 looks like Oklahoma’s to lose once again – do they have challengers?
Our first Group of Five conference was the Mountain West, which is clearly down from last year. Boise State is a clear favorite, but with a new quarterback. The top contenders have fallen back a few notches. Because of that, Ralph is seeing some crazy upset potential in the conference this season with a couple of long shots to consider from a futures standpoint.
