Earlier this week, Bovada released a number of options for betting on the 2014 college football season, including conference title odds for the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC and national championship odds for 51 programs. As is usually the case when numbers like these are released, some people agree with the odds the professionals are offering, while others simply do not. Texas A&M defensive back Deshazor Everett is in the latter camp.
Everett, upon seeing that the Aggies sit at 25:1 to win the SEC, took to Twitter to make a quick statement.
25-1 odds a lot of people sleep on us

…further proof that college football players, whether they’re supposed to or not, read what people are saying about both them and their programs.
Considering that Texas A&M lost a Heisman Trophy winner, a star wide receiver and one of the best offensive linemen in college football, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that the Aggies aren’t a favorite to win the league. But if their defense, which struggled mightily last year, can improve, maybe they’ll be able to win some close, low-scoring games for a change.
