Tennessee has no defense. They allowed 608 yards against Vanderbilt, 704 vs Missouri and 635 vs Kentucky.

We can play with TN, especially given their defensive woes. However, we will probably need to score in the upper 30's due to our own against good competition. However, where the bigger picture is concerned, the 2nd Coming of our Lord is far more imminent than our ascension back to relevancy in CFB!

Better team if they show up with some fire.

Nebraska has more want to... win that is. Nebraska is just as fast and athletic. Riely knows how to win bowl games. With Tommy A we win for sure, and without him we stll run the ball down there throaght and win.

I guess it all depends on the ANGLES the defense take on tackling. At least that is what Banker said. But is that an opinion we can trust???

Riley is NOT the coach to bring this program back to respect. He is a nice guy but beyond that he is not the coach for a major college powerhouse.

Coaching. The philosophy of both the DC and OC are ok for mediocre middle of the pack and down.,but will not win consistently playing top rated teams..

We are going to get killed. We don't have a qb, no Westy, No Gerry, and on and on... I don't know why I wasted a bunch of money and time to go down to get made fun of and embarrassed...

Coaching for Nebraska concerns me immensely as far as scheme and play calling goes. Lets get to far with the special teams issues.

Tennessee has no defense. They have allowed 500+ yards per game in their last 3 games. It doesn't matter who plays quarterback for us.

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.
