Half of playing defense is showing attitude and being fired up to play. This will help our players.

Yes. Weve needed this for a few yrs A coordinator to push the guys to new heights and show them what defensive football's all about. Between Diaco and Parella were now in good hands You'll see a difference!!

His style reminds me of Monte Kiffin when he coached for Bobfather.

The players seem to like him and his hands on approach and that's all that counts. I am excited for the defense this fall.

The Defense needs a leader who is a little unhinged.... Check

sometimes, but not all the time, you get in a players face. i'm not sure banker could deliver a message that got to the soul of the defender, Dr. Diaco i believe will, just a hunch........

Defense is all about being fired up. Bringing that intensity in my opinion will only help to bring back the old blackshirt defenses!

First game is always vanilla on offense. They will try to establish the run with basic run formations.

Slightly more runs than passes... if we are smart. Or it's going to be a long year.

Oline should dominate a transfer portal depleted Northwestern front and get the practice running the ball that is needed to win in the BIG.

They will play to win. The way to win is to grind Northwestern down.

I feel we should get a somewhat comfortable lead and start grinding out 1st downs via the run game. But if Oline under-performs and forgets to show up? All bets are off.

Show off our running back talent, as they won't stop us by the end of the game.

It will likely be balanced, but slightly more runs. Whipple likes running.

Whips will probably stick to a 54/46 ratio. I know they will be seeking as much balance as possible. An early lead would help balance things back to near 50/50. Early on as they go on attack, I think it may start out close to 60/40.

It'll be pretty close to a 50/50 split, but I'll give the slight edge to the run game. From what I've read our run blocking is better than our pass blocking right now. Much like the TO days I can envision a run heavy 1st & 2nd down to avoid 3rd and longs.

There will be swing passes and screens that will act as substitutes for runs, loosen up the D and spread the defense.

I struggled with this decision. We have talent, but that hasn't been our problem recently. Execution, special teams and the O-line have been our Achille's heal (in that order). If we can improve in 2 of these areas, it should be enough to get us 7 wins.

I think our offense will score a lot more points than last year and the defense will shut more teams down on 3rd downs.

I think we may have to win one of the last four tough games to be bowl eligible.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.
