Arizona State Football 2015 – Better, worse or abo...

The 2015 Sun Devil Offense Arizona State loses one of the most productive quarterbacks in school history. Arguably the most talented receiver to ever play in Tempe left early for the NFL. Both starting tackles are gone, last season’s 1,000-yard rusher is now a wide receiver, and the No. 2 wide receiver is out for the year following knee surgery. Yet many around the program feel that this year’s offense could be better than...

Texas Tech Football 2015 – Better, worse or about ...

Texas Tech offense: better, worse or about the same? Why? The offense should be better as long as quarterback Patrick Mahomes progresses like they think he’ll progress, then the offense is going to be significantly better.  The big problem with the offense last year was turnovers, largely too many interceptions from Davis Webb, and all the pieces are in place for an offensive unit that returns all but one starter at...

Missouri Football 2015 – Better, worse or about th...

Missouri Offense: better, worse or about the same? Why? By Mizzou standards, the offense struggled in 2014. This was mainly due to losing some very talented wide receivers.  The 2015 Tiger offense will probably be about the same as last year.  Once again the lack of significant experience at wide receiver has the potential to present some problems for QB Maty Mauk.  Wesley Leftwich is the lone senior wideout for the Tigers...

San Jose State Football 2015 – Better, worse or ab...

SJSU offense: better, worse or about the same? Why? It has to be better or coach Ron Caragher could be in big trouble. The Spartans were last in the conference in scoring last year and don’t have a good enough defense to make up for that lack of production. Being one of the worst red zone teams in the country (scoring just 17 touchdowns on 39 trips) made the ultimate difference. Caragher often bemoaned the team’s...

Virginia Football 2015 – Better, worse or about th...

Offense The offense should be better in 2015, if only from a position of mathematical necessity. The offense last year was 11th in the ACC in total offense, 11th in points per game, 13th in rushing offense… And the ACC in 2014 wasn’t exactly murderer’s row. When the only teams looking up at you in the standings are Syracuse and Wake Forest, it’s probably time for a change.  But change is what we’ll see. Matt Johns took the...

Pittsburgh Football 2015 – Better, worse or about ...

Pitt offense: better, worse or about the same? Why? The Pitt offense is expected to be better than the 2014 version. Other than senior offensive linemen T.J. Clemmings and Matt Rotheram, Pitt returns virtually all of its talented unit. The offense is led by star running back James Conner, who racked up 1,765 rushing yards and 26 touchdowns, and wide receiver Tyler Boyd (1,261 yards and eight scores). Gone is Manasseh Garner,...

Alabama Football 2015 – Better, worse or about the...

Alabama Offense: better, worse or about the same? Why? The Alabama offense will take a step back this year. Any offense that loses its starting quarterback, running back, three starting offensive lineman and record breaking wide receiver will take a step back. Even though Alabama is at the top of the recruiting boards year in and year out, those guys were special players who will be hard to replace. When Jake Coker...

Oklahoma State Football 2015 – Better, worse or ab...

Oklahoma State offense: better, worse or about the same? Why? For anyone who watched Oklahoma State last season, this is not a serious question… The offense should be demonstrably better in 2o15, and all the credit will go to Sophomore QB Mason Rudolph and the offensive line. Rudolph’s burned redshirt should turn out to be a worthwhile sacrifice, as excitement around the program is about as high as it was prior...

Penn State Football 2015 – Better, worse or about ...

PSU offense: better, worse or about the same (as last year)? Why? Ultimately we will have to sort of wait and see but I think there is reason to be optimistic the offense will be better in 2015. The biggest weakness was up front with the offensive line, which never allowed Christian Hackenberg to breathe and never allowed the running game to get going. With some young guys getting some experience and the addition of a pair...

TCU Football 2015 – Better, worse or about the sam...

TCU offense: better, worse or about the same (as last year)? Why? Barring injuries of course, I think that the TCU offense this year could be the best one in school history by just about any measure you’d care to name- which means yes, I think it’s going to be better.   The Frogs return 9 of their starters on the offensive side (Some sites won’t count the departing B.J. Catalon as a starter, which would...
