Troy Trojans vs. Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders Preview and Picks



Troy Trojans
(2-2, 1-3 ATS)

Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders
(2-2, 1-3 ATS)

In a game that could ultimately prove to be the de facto Sun Belt championship, the Troy Trojans and Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders will duke it out in NCAA football betting action on Tuesday night.

For the Trojans, this game is one in which the offense is expected to roll. This Troy team just hasn’t lost a step offensively, which is why 34.0 points per game are hitting the board. It got off to a good start in Sun Belt play last week, beating the Arkansas State Red Wolves 35-28, but is hasn’t covered a college football spread since September 11th. The world will be introduced to one of the top statistical passers in the country on Tuesday night, as QB Corey Robinson will lead this team on the field. For the first time in awhile, the Trojans don’t have a dual threat of a quarterback, but Robinson is a fantastic drop back passer. He is completing 61.8 percent of his passes and has an 8/3 TD/INT ratio. Robinson, still just a freshman, has already thrown for 1,244 yards in just five games. The running game is split between three men, all of which are equally dangerous. Running Backs DuJuan Harris, Shawn Southward, and Chris Anderson have combined for 106 carries, 512 yards, and four TDs for Troy. The problem has been the woeful defense, which ranks in the bottom ten in the country in total yards allowed.

MTSU finally gets QB Dwight Dasher back in the lineup after a four game suspension that simply felt like it took forever to get through. Dasher put up some of the best numbers in the land last year, and many felt as though he could be good for 5,000 yards of offense and 50 TDs this year had he stayed out of trouble. Alas, you never know with Dasher exactly what you’re getting, as this is a man that threw for 24 TDs and ran for 13 more in 2009. This offense is already good at 427.8 yards per game, but with Dasher calling the shots, things are only going to be getting better and better. Once again, defense is a big problem. Though the Blue Raiders are a modest 60th in the nation in both total ‘D’ (351.5 YPG) and scoring defense (23.8 PPG), they really have played a modest schedule to date, with no bowl teams on the schedule. This week’s game against Troy and next week’s duel against Georgia Tech are clearly the two hardest games of the season for a team that many thought could run the table this year.

The oddsmakers have forgotten about just how good Dasher and the Blue Raiders can be when they are firing on all cylinders. This is the biggest game of the season in Murfreesboro, and MTSU is going to want to put on a significantly better show tonight than they did in their opener, a 24-17 loss to the Minnesota Golden Gophers. The Blue Raiders can effectively win the Sun Belt on Tuesday night.

Selection: Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders -3.5

Like a superstar

Mint June 11, 2011 New Delhi, June 11 — If smartphones can have sequels, then the Samsung Galaxy S II is The Empire Strikes Back of the mobile world-a follow-up that improves on every element of the original, and stands out as an exemplary representative of its ilk.

The first Samsung Galaxy S was the thinnest, fastest Android phone in the world when it launched in March 2010. It also sold impressively, shipping 10 million units worldwide. The S II is faster and, rather improbably, thinner. It’s a mere 8.49mm thick and weighs a little over 100g. It looks almost impossible from an engineering standpoint. In a necessary trade-off, it has a plasticky frame, but with a pleasingly polished and textured finish. The extreme thinness also means the speakers aren’t great, and the sound is tinny and washed out. site htc incredible s

The S II’s super Amoled display is absolutely fantastic. One can argue about factors such as exact pixel counts and colour density, but this is the best screen I’ve seen on a smartphone yet. Yes, better than the iPhone 4. It’s vivid, large (at 4.3 inches) and a searingly bright beacon of light in dark places.

Inside, the phone is more powerful than many netbooks available in the market today. It sports a dual-core 1.2 Ghz processor, and a humming graphics processing unit (GPU) that handles any video or 3D content you throw at it with merciless ease. As a result, the Android version 2.3.3 (“Gingerbread”) runs without a hint of stutter. The only point of contention arises from Samsung’s TouchWiz 4.0 interface, which they insist on slapping over all their phones. To be fair, a lot of thought has gone into this version of TouchWiz-you can jump directly to a missed call or message when unlocking the phone, the SMS app is arranged in tabs when the phone is held horizontal, and the default keyboard is excellent.

However, this being Android, you’re not stuck with TouchWiz if you don’t like it, and dozens of other options clamour for your attention on the Android market (now 100,000 apps strong).

The camera is an 8-megapixel shooter with flash. It’s not bad, but it’s not the Nokia N8 either. The lack of a dedicated camera button is annoying.

The phone has a gyroscope and accelerometer built in, which lets you do cool stuff like flip the phone over to mute it immediately (which works great) or zoom in and out of pictures by moving the phone backwards and forwards (cool, but pointless). The phone misses no chance to show off all the things it can do, and why not, when it’s been put together with such supreme confidence? in our site htc incredible s

You’d think with all this power, the battery life would be woeful. It’s always been a sore point for Android phones in general. The S II fares reasonably well here too. It can get you through a day with medium use.

The S II is priced at Rs.32,850. Cheaper than the iPhone 4. More expensive than the HTC Incredible S or Optimus 2X. It’s the best phone Samsung’s ever made, and one of the best smartphones you can buy.
