they are the show, they are the reason stadiums in some cases sell out Saturday after Saturday, absolutely these student athletes should be paid. Student/Athletes have access to meals, clothing, tutors, etc., but some payment should be available

Kids are risking brain damage (CTE) and have only about a 5% chance of making it to the NFL. A free education you say? A degree in PE is practically worthless. All the while these kids are making the school, athletic dept, and coaches millions and millions. Billions in some cases. This is absurd.

It would change college football in to minor league football with incentive being money rather than the love of the game However, I think the schools could offer more incentives like Michigan with foreign experiences and broadening the learning base experience.

They are there to get an education and if the school makes money on them, so be it. If the school does not make money then all of the scholarships and free benefits will not be there. Are athletes that go pro, going to pay back the school? What school pays the most? That is where I would go.

They are there for the education or they should get out.

I do believe that they deserve an allowance so they have enough to live on while trying to compete on the field and in the classroom.

they are already getting paid. Meals, Tuition and an opportunity to reach the NFL. A normal student pays up to 60,000 to 100000 dollars for tuition at any big school.

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.
