Experience, plus I believe that Imani can break the big ones.

I believe he will pound and he will be the guy for the 1st and 2nd downs.

Imani is a senior, and a beast. Imani will get more carries but not by much. Coach Riley will get everything out of Imani and more. Imani is a great athlete and is physically more capable of carrying the team like Ammer did.

More break-away ability, coaches will want big plays in the running game

Imani runs to straight up and down. Might be a load but doesn't pick up the big yards. Terrell can break the big play and is more versatlile

Cross has been shoved to the side right or wrong his whole career, and since Newby had more big play threat I see being the same

Newby is a big play threat. I really like Cross but he is not as explosive...should have been moved to linebacker a couple of years ago.

Not linebacker he should be moved to fullback

I think he is a better TB but I think Amani would rule as a FB in this system, be on nice one two punch!

Riley's offense is more spread than power, more about speed and misdirection than North/South running. Cross could have more TDs, but not more carries.

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.
