Posted by Alex Murphy on Monday,July 13, 2015 3:10, EST in

Every coach in the college football ranks is under some sort of pressure at the start of a new season, but there are some who feel it more than others. These are not necessarily guys who are in the hot seat, but rather veteran coaches who feel as though they have something to prove in the coming season. Let’s take a look at a few who might feel as though they should be doing a little better this College Football Odds season.

Here’s Our 2015 NCAA Football Betting Season Coach Ranks

Mark Richt

If Mark Richt of the Georgia Bulldogs were fired tomorrow, the line-up to secure his services would be a long one indeed. Richt has been one of the most consistent coaches in football for as long as anyone can remember, but there is still a sense that he has come up short more often than not. The Dawgs always have a great recruiting class, yet always seem to find a way to lose a game or two that they shouldn’t each season. They have seen Missouri take the SEC East crown the past two seasons, and that is something Richt will want to rectify.

Urban Meyer

It seems strange to mention Urban Meyer in this group, especially since he is sporting a rather snazzy looking National Championship ring won last season, but the Ohio State coach still has his doubters. The Big 10 Conference is not really looked at as one of the Elite, which means the Buckeyes tend to have a rather powder puff schedule to look forward to. It is really going to take back to back titles for Meyer to get the credit he fully deserves.

Jim Harbaugh

No coach is going to have more eyes on him this coming season than Jim Harbaugh. Not only is he taking over the largest sleeping giant in football in Michigan, he is also getting paid a ridiculous amount of money to do so. Harbaugh has made a habit of turning things around quickly wherever he goes, so the expectations of the Michigan fans are high. He will likely get a pass this season, but there will still be an expectation of massive improvement.

Nick Saban

If you want to talk about a coach who changed the fortunes of a program, look no further than Nick Saban and Alabama. He has turned the Crimson Tide into a perennial contender, but has also created a winning atmosphere where nothing but a National Championship will do. After winning 3 of 4, Alabama has now gone 2 years without one. The natives are getting restless.
