It's the coaches job to put the players in the best position to succeed individually and as a team. If there's something Mark Whipple can implement in the middle of the season to help the OL, and score points, he should do that.

Not a full scale strategy change, but play to our strength. Good to see some new player at RT. (Benhart might look good on paper, but his poor game playing stalls a lot of drives)

We have a mobile QB, we need to use that more with designed QB keepers

Not only do I think they should, quick hitters and more run plays, but I think these coaches are on top of it.

Well, as one local sports writer said, when it comes to pass blocking, the OL looks like a bunch of Matadors out there, particularly the right side of the line. Consequently, that's been getting CT killed. He won't hold up all season like that, I don't care how tough he is. We gotta protect him!

Thompson is getting killed. Let him move around. At least if he's getting hit while on the run it won't be flat footed with his arm in the air for a free shot.

Move the pocket around or line up with two running backs in the backfield. This would buy Casey Thompson the time and options he needs to get the offense rolling.

O line is the worst I think I have ever seen, some major adjustments need to be done if they wanna keep making progress, O line is definitely holding us back, to much talent to be only scoring 14 points on Rutgers and I think play calling hasn’t been very impressive. GBR!!!

Go back to the Osborne days ... what did Dr. Tom do ? Why he subbed in players, especially young talent all the time....which is why year after year it seemed as if our entire team had so much experience because T.O. subbed in and played new guys all the time. Give those young ones a try !!!

we cannot expect to continue winning without crease runs...the B1G is too tough and our line is not good enough for that. Get the ball outside on the edge and off tackle. Quit expecting to gash anyone between the guards. Ain't gonna happen with this line.

Only hope with the tougher defenses we will be facing is to do what Purdue does, quick pass plays and rush breaking screens, quick outs, short routes, occasional deep ball shots and maybe throw in some Smothers and the option.

Roll the QB out if the pocket, and run some halfback screens!

Phil Steele has Turner Cochran as the #13 tackle in the nation, and Bryce Benhart as the #34 tackle in the nation. THE NATION!!! It's time to exert our dominance and stop letting the QB, RB, and receivers get in the way of the offensive tackles!

Better coverage. Some point they'll figure out how to use the cell phones to enhance the game day experience. Perhaps they could take food/drink orders via phone.

If it's going to cost NU $30 mil, our phones work fine enough as is. Watch the game & spend $ elsewhere. But, if Verizon, etc are flipping the bill and the athletic department has lease agreements lined up to make the school $ as claimed, I would have to say why not and move my vote to the yes side.

I go to watch a game, not chat with someone on my phone. It's just like the gym; waiting for a machine or weight stand while someone using said apparatus talks on their phone.

I'm sick of seeing people with their head down in their phone and living in a little bitty world of trivial nonsense. Be at the game or don't come to the game.
