It was a wise COACHING decision not to let Ameer play further against Purdue. Looked like he could have gone back in after the brace and some treatment, but why risk it. Two weeks to get him ready for Wisky...

Remember, Ameer is a very versatile player, he can be used as a decoy, a receiver out of the backfield, he's a darn good blocker. Imani Cross is also a very good running back, can't forget Newby either. Need I say more?

He is a strong willed individual and he will do everything to be ready.

he needs to be 100 percent to be affective with his running style Wis 28-NU14

I think Nebraska's defense will raise their play to compensate. Also the offense will mentally adjust. They all want to win.

MCL sprain to heal up completely in 2 weeks......no way. Unfortunately, it will bother him for the remainder of the season.

His freakish ability to stop and cut on a dime is what makes him who he is and even if he's close to 100% he won't get much practice and I guarantee that injury is going thru his head come Wisconsin game time. I really worry about him coming out and cutting hard the first time and re-injuring it but this time worse.

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.
