There are so many question marks coming into this game I don't know where to start. Will Burkhead play ( I hope not, rest), will the D-line be healed up and ready to go, will we protect the ball, will we fill the gaps and stop Shoelace from racking up some major yards?
Offense: Burkhead sits in street clothes and helps coach the young stable of backs. Martinez is going to target a lot of receivers (at least 10) and will hopefully have a big day statistically. The big question mark in this game is will the O-line be ready to play and will they get a good push and open holes against a tough Defense.
Defense: The D-line is pretty banged up and Meredith will probably be switching around from end to tackle again this week. I expect to see a lot of Corey Cooper and Ciante Evans focusing on Robinson and trying to keep him from running wild. If the secondary can keep the receivers locked down Robinson could be running for his life instead of for Touchdowns.
Fearless Prediction: With the assistance of some great blocking from the O-line and the receivers Ameer goes over 100 and scores twice. Eric Martin gets loose early and gives Robinson a shot that makes him question the idea of running again. Compton gives Robinson a second shot which leaves him hobbling. Martinez's arm opens up the run and the Huskers win on a last second field goal by Maher (he's due).
a win in indy would more than qualify as Bo's first big one even if we fall short in pasadena
but the win over Mich was a big one in my eyes too Country
so your saying its gonna be close Ben? :-)
I see a defensive slugfest at State coming up. Gotta love B1G football.
It should be if the Spartans don't let the game get away from them like they did last year.
Michigan is, like all others in the BIG, a good team but nothing special. They were COMPLETELY unprepared to lose Denard. Once that happened it was OVER.
Not if it's against Indiana, although I don't think they would be a push over in a possible title match, based on how they've played some teams in the league.
it was close Ben very close 6 seconds to spare close :-)
Yes, a gift from Michigan State to the University of Nebraska.
