He struggled in recruiting and the D line's performance was pathetic on getting pressure on the quarterbacks that they played against this year and The players did not buy into his coaching Philosophy

When you don't recruit any D lineman you reap what you sow.

We were top 10 against the run. It wasn't obvious until the very end that he was failing on the Recruiting Trail. so if anyone says they saw it coming, they're full of it.

never heard of the guy till he was fired, but glad he is gone. Seems like he wasn't earning his $300,000 salary

Not saying I'm surprised... But, I just didn't realize there was any problem there. But, once I started looking at the information that is "out there", I can see why they might be wanting to make a change.

I thought because of stopping the rush all was alright, but who am I to know.

I am not privy to any inside information and I don't speculate on how well anyone is doing as a result. In other words I don't pretend to know what I don't know to feel like a big shot lol! It does look like a good move after the facts that were released came out.

Pass rush is but one part of DL play. They stopped the run effectively and contained most scrambles. The blitz packages or lack thereof fall on Banker, not Hughes.

Because he was not the weak point in the pass defense.

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.

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