Commits and de-commits happen every year, even students backing out at fall camp. We need player development. 3 star players can become 4 star with development.

So far, it's not a bad class, and hoping for a strong close.

It is an improvement. Yet I won't be completely satisfied until we start landing 4-5 star recruits regularly. The bowl loss cost us.

not filling out the o-line and d line

If I understand correctly this staff wants to bring the number of o-linemen on the roster down.

Worse in yrs. Why? Because he is trying to make this a pass team with eye on WR instead of OL.His heaviest linman in this class is 279 likely exagerated. out of the three linemen recruited one is a3.5 and the last is a 2.0. Really? did he forget he lost. TA due to no depth in the OL?

Started out looking great with lots of hope but as the dust is settling it is not looking so good. We have some talent coming in but need more.

It seems to be going in the wrong direction. We only have a little over two weeks to go and still need 10 slots filled. Not hopeful.

Currently ranked lower than any of Bo's classes. No need to sugarcoat things; this staff simply isn't getting it done.

If Langsdorf wants to keep throwing the deep route 4 or more times a game we need a receiver that's a deep threat and an o-line that can buy adequate time. We also need better d-ends and our running back recruiting has been mediocre. I don't see the upgrade(this and last class) from the last staff.

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.
