Too late in the season. Give him time to master the playbook/concept of the program

At this point of the season it seems a little late.

Look to the future. Besides, one player can not cure what is ailing the defense.

He won't make that much of an impact this year but hey Im not a coach. I could be wrong.

The problems on this team are deeper than one offensive lineman. If he can save the defense that would be different.

The five biggest games are next. If he is the best player he must play. We learned this lesson last year in not burning red shirts. If he is not the best player, make that clear to end the debate.

The OL needs all the help it can get - it is obvious! Plus, the coaches are not firing on all cylinders! That's why!

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.
