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.

You typically pass a lot more when you’re playing from behind.

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.

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.

That's just part of the deal now with the portal, particularly after a coaching change. People may not care too much for it but we better all get used to it because it's not going anywhere.

If they enter transfer portal, they are not willing to work, and play tough. Let them go elsewhere

The new staff needs the freedom to get the players that will fit their system. The kids that leave or stay away are no guarantees either.

Coach Rhule needs to build his own team. Players that transfer shouldn't be there anyway.

In the spring the head coach and assistants will start their work. They, in effect, will ride the horse upon which they came, the players on the field. It is up to the coaches to either develop those players or to fail. We will see the result in August.

With the coaching changes, its only prudent for players to re-evaluate their decisions to make sure its best fit for them. If I was a father of a player, i would encourage the re-evaluation process and if they re-commit, Great! Otherwise best of luck to both sides.
