Well that dropped like a rock in a big hurry.

These two opened up at 69.5, and it quickly sunk down to 65 before pushing back up a bit. And why?

Why are we all assuming these two teams with their new head coaches are going to get the offenses to blow up?

It’s entirely possible with Kalen DeBoer taking over the Bulldogs and Todd Graham at Hawaii both creatively offensive-minded coaches, but hitting 66 between these two might be a wee bit of a heavy lift.

These two combined for 79 last year in Honolulu, but this year’s Rainbow Warrior attack isn’t going to be as dangerous right out of the gate, and the Fresno State defense should be a whole lot stronger.

The Bulldogs will likely rely on what should be a strong ground game to kick  this off – they might control the tempo even if they’re trying to operate with a quick pace.

Be careful, of course, because we don’t quite know what these two will be doing right away, but that’s a big number with so many variables to worry about.
