He'll be too loyal to his staff just like the last two fellas.

You've got to be kidding, right? Purdue, a 1-6 team only scored 55 points on Nebraska, if that's not getting it done I don't know what is! LMAO!

He should have done it in the first place.

There is ZERO chance Riley changes anyone. One or two might leave of their own volition (doubtful) but no way Riley changes anyone. He doesn't think it's the coaching.

We have seen this before, BC hired his buddies and BP it was rumored would not change his final staff. Call it being stubborn or loyal to a fault. MR is not making staff changes with his buddies from OSU.

He brought the whole Oregon St group to NU do you really think he will replace any. It is obvious he should and replace his playbook as well. I am wondering if he knows how to call running plays haven't seen that yet. My heart goes out to these kids, the play calling is bad.

Not until the Head Coach gets together with ALL coaches and puts together an offensive scheme that fits the players, not the coach or his staff. They have the talent but they just don't have the plays to fit the players. Think Out-side the Box.

I don't think Riley sees anything wrong with what his team is doing. He doesn't see that they aren't using the players talents to the teams advantage. He doesn't see that the plays called are helping the team perform.

There is no reason for coaching changes at this time. HCMR was hired to do a job. Let him do it.

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.
