We have a lot of talent coming back on the defensive side of the ball and I like our young LB's. I think with an attacking style of D from our DL there will be more TO opportunities. I think Coach Riley is an experienced offensive coach and will play to the strenghts of the talent we have on O.

Can't imagine Harbaugh resurrecting that train wreck that quickly.

Mike Riley, because he's getting a team with a winning record and Harbaugh not.

Riley's hitting all right notes so far, inherited a team that under-achieved, and already addressed its worst problem under Pelini: an overly complex defense that couldn't handle power running games. Also,Harbaugh is grossly overrated (Kaeprenick plateaued under Harbaugh, an ex-QB).

not even going to let that first year Wisconsin coach be an option!

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.
