Having some sort of pass rush will increase our win total as will even an AVERAGE special teams, will be interesting to see. That’s excluding the OL playProbably about right as far as preseason polls go. NU has earned this, and after last years last place finish, they are being kind. My oh my how this program has tumbled. Hopefully the new faces, new coach’s, and new enthusiasm will inject some life into this team. They’ve lost for so long now, that they have to learn how to win again. That, in of itself, can be a difficult obstacle to overcome. We shall see. 4-8, to 11-1 is possible. The talent is there to do that, but they have much work to do.
Scheme has something to do with that as well. Let’s hope he gets better, and the talent plays better. He needs to improve from last years improvement after 3 horrible seasons.Personnel
Personnel was also an issue. Nelson was our only guy who could get there, Tannor on occasion. Mathis is a guy who was underutilized and should provide instant relief
