    Saturday is going to be a day for running the ball 50-60 times... very cold morning with 18-20 MPH winds out of the south...

    A day for the big boys up front to road grade and show some Husker nastiness...

    I want 400 yards rushing on these boys from Champaign-Urbana.... The "Fighting" Illini give up over 240 yards a game on the ground... DOUBLE IT

    I would still like JD and Morgan to get ~100 yards receiving. They're going to need it if they want to break 1,000.

    Yep, the short passing game will still be effective.

    Maybe a few down the field play action home runs with the wind at our back... or bubble screens that they break loose on... Don't see us putting the ball in the air more than 15 times.

    At least 25 passes this game. Mostly short patterns, but for sure at least 25 times. JD, Morgan, Washington are too good in the passing game to leave it that untouched.

    We need to keep it effective because we are going to need it the last two games, too, and it won’t be getting much warmer. Pass to set up the run, and versey vicey!

    right... over 30 is probably still a decent bet

    if we can't throw the ball we probably won't be able to run on a consistent basis. I think our line is getting better but they won't be able to do much if the threat of the pass isn't there. No reason to change what has been working and the wind shouldn't affect the short passes/screens very much. If we get up by a bunch then by all means keep it on the ground, but until then run the offense they way it is supposed to be run.

    Agree...this staff will stay balanced as much as possible to create the situations that they want.

    Anyone worried about the CA quarterback playing in freezing temps for the first time? He's been pretty amazing, but he's made mistakes when he's run into something new. I still think he throws it around, but don't be surprised if he licks a flagpole or something.

    I am unconcerned. There are like 50 things that worry me more.

    The only thing I do not see is the 30-40 yd bombs. Like the one last week to Stanley.
