Could be better than it initially was going to be if we retain the current commits. Already got a nice LB recruit we wouldn't have.

Excitement...Intrigue...and wanting to be a part of a positive change. Doesn't matter what you're going into...that's exciting for anyone!!!

Might attract a high caliber QB knowing there is somewhat a change in style and OC.

Riley's national reputation by pundits will influence recruiting

I don't think it will affect the recruiting class. Students commit and de-commit all the time up to signing day. We lost a few at the last minute last year and it always happens. We will be just fine!

The system Riely runs will draw NFL hopefuls. Especially on the offensive side of the ball.P

Need to get use to recruiting to nebraska. No top recruiters on his staff so far.

Naturally it's going to hurt. Unless we end up pulling some previous commits from the schools these coaches are leaving, there's no relationship of current commits to these coaches. Not rocket science. However the fact that everyone has hit the ground running to get a staff in place certainly will make some difference, however it's not like these kids are going to be playing for a huge name coach. See more of a negative than a positive.

We had a good class going and Riley has never shown to be a good recruiter.

Riley has no impressive celebrity status with highschool (and college) players perhaps outside OSU. Nobody knows the guy because he only wins about half the time. Players who have never met him or researched him are not impressed so why be interested or stick around?

Because Husker fans are living in the 90's and think if the NEW coach acts like TO he will be TO. Doesn't work that way. The Ant-Bo will drop 2 of the first 4 next season. Bank on it.

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.
