Ron Brown...........that's it. Everyone else needs to go. I feel that Ron is essential to out program as he knows our program and tradition better than any other coach. It's important to keep someone around that knows about our tradition and history. Ron is also just a great person to have around maturing adults.

Coach Kaz and Coach Warren are proven as Position Coaches with their Units doing well, and especially Warren can Recruit.

With such turmoil caused by Pelini and his attitude and anti-social behavior, I think a clean start for everyone might be best.

Time for some "new blood". A few of them may be worthy of keeping around but I feel at the very most make it 1 or 2. I'm still waiting for a splash coordinator hire (not looking like it is going to happen).

Warren, Fisher, Brown & Kazz. These are the best of Bo'so crew. They will help with the continued quality of play and a smooth transition for this incoming recruits. This a very good incoming class.

I think that Coach Riley should keep Ron Brown. He provides the link to the past and produces good players and better men. I also feel that Charlton Warren is a good coach and a great recruiter. Finally Rick Kaczenski should stay given the work he has done with the defensive line and the fact that he will bring the twins in from Missouri.

Brown - Look at the development in the players he has coached. Great recruiter. Also good ties to the traditions of the past. Kaz - Has consistently been the best part of the defense since he has been hear. Great recruiter. Players love playing for him. Warren - Great recruiter, good development of Davie and Gerry over the past year. Fischer - Despite the heavy losses at WR due to injury the past two years, this group has been solid. Look at their downfield blocking. Players love the guy. Great recruiter. All in all, keeping the four best recruiters from the previous staff, and some really good coaches. I have a hard time believing we can see that great of upgrades from what we already have (which is pretty good).

Or three best units have been our running backs, D-line, and secondary (just look at Gerry's development). Keep Ron, Kaz, and Warren. Obivously, Warren has already been decided.

We have three excellent coaches on the existing staff that aren't necessarily Pelini guys; Coach Brown, Coach Warren and Coach Katz. Retaining these three and bring in powerhouse O & D Coordinators

The relationships with the players is important. The pass defense has been exceptional. We should not lose that.

Brown Definitely! Warren...Kazinski... Fisher...Garrison...Dobson. At least the first 4. I don't think you have a choice like on Jeff Jamrog since he's an assistant AD and what do you do with Grad assistants? Joe Ganz is a GA. But we've got some resources for Riley right there on the Remaining 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.
