He is a winner, plain and simple.

I don't believe Coach Riley will use the pure West Coast offense. He has commented and the virtue of multiple set pass- run options. The offense will be similar to what we have seen the last three years.

Riley has said quite often he will adapt what his system with what the players can do. I know he recruited Stanton but he was a cali kid in pac 12 country.

Tommy is this best QB we have regardless of the system. Coach Riley will coach him up.

1 1/2 years starting is a lot of experience. If the new coach plays to this teams strength it will be hard not to. If he's looking for a pocket passer he may be out. Remember when he sits in the pocket he can't remember which way his receivers are going.

No, because Riley will install the offense he used at Oregon State which will primarily be a West Coast System. It will be Stanton at QB next year. You heard it first right here.

Actually, I've heard that hundreds of times from other sources already...

Average thrower at best. Johnny Stanton will be the guy.

Stanton has the best arm of the lot. It was shown this year that the difference between 9-4 and 12-1 or 13-0 was the fact that we couldn't consistently pass when it really counted. If we have a quality QB that can make those throws we might have been in the Playoff this year and Riley knows it.

Stanton was recruited by Riley, plus I believe he can complete check down passes to the running back, a problem we've had the last 2 years.

Great option QB, but those days are over. Too many bad throws (lucky for the USC drops) ; likely it's Stanton.

Mike Riley is a huge Stanton fan. And let's face it . Every time Armstrong drops back to pass , we have to hold our breath and hope he throws it to the right team.

Johnny Stanton will win the job because he is a more complete QB

Unless he can consistently make the throws in the short and medium range, he will sit. He needs to be consistent. Throwing a 65 yard strike is nice, but it also helps to make the throws to just move the chains.

I hope he isn't because if he is the best we have for 2015, then you can expect 3-4 losses next year as well. Sub par throwing, can't read routes and not a pocket passer.

two years of 50% passing... I don't think we need a third.

The guy is wildly inconsistent. Very indecisive. Locks in on one receiver. We need a better passer. My money is on Stanton, but I think Darlington is a possibility along with Bush. I also wonder if a junior college kid is a possibility.

Hasn't mastered progressions, patience in the pocket and most importantly, self confidence. Thought he might have what it takes but he does not!!

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.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.
