I hope we put our big boy pants on and run right through them. TA is probably not going to play so the running backs are going to make up for that. WE are a big ten team not a pac 12 so let's stick it to them and show them what a good running team could look like. Besides running wears them down

Without Tommy we will need Terrell Newby and company to come up big, and with a healthy O line we should control the game and help Ryker and our D.

We do not have an accurate passer in Fyfe so we may have to run 60% to 70 % of the time.

Aside from staying in the locker room, running the ball makes the most sense of avoiding an embarrassment,

I think it is obvious with Ryker in limited playing time. Line up and run the ball. They may know it is coming but their stats are not that inimidating

Cancel The Game For Goodness Sakes. Why Embarrass Us Fans Who Have Wasted Their Money And Time??? We Barely Have A Team To Field. No QB, No Westy, No Gerry, ect...

I was impressed by some of the balls that Ryker threw. So I look forward to a few more passes, slinging it is not the term I would really use. We still want a ground game but it might not be there.

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.
