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

BOISE STATE OFFENSE Well, it’s always hard to tell after Spring Camp, but at first blush this seems like a no-brainer—worse. It’s not that Boise State’s offense looked particularly bad this Spring…they return a ton of pieces—the entire O-line, the lion’s share of the receiving corps, and nearly every tight end and running back. However, departed running back Jay Ajayi (NFL 5th round pick to...

West Virginia Football 2015 – Better, worse or abo...

WEST VIRGINIA OFFENSE The WVU offense will likely begin the season as slightly worse, but look for it to end the season the same or better.  The obvious reasons for an initial downtick are the losses of wide receivers Kevin White, the number 7 pick in this years NFL draft, and Mario Alford (NFL 7th round selection). Less obvious, but also of large importance, are the losses of two starting offensive lineman in Mark Glowinski...

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

BYU Football 2015 Spring Recap     BYU OFFENSE Overall the BYU offense should be better as they have quarterback Taysom Hill, a potential Heisman trophy candidate, returning from a broken leg that only let him play four complete games last year. Also returning is the Cougars top running back, Jamaal Williams who was injured most of the year and only played in seven games. A healthy Hill and Williams will give the...

Texas A & M Football 2015 – Better, worse or ...

TEXAS A & M OFFENSE Although Texas A&M’s offense averaged 35.2 points per game last season to rank 26th in the nation in scoring offense, the Aggies project to be even better in 2015. A&M boasted one of the country’s most productive passing games in 2014 with a true freshman quarterback starting half the season and three receivers in their first seasons of major college football. Quarterback Kyle Allen, who was...

Minnesota Football 2015 – Better, worse or about t...

MINNESOTA OFFENSE This offense is pretty much what will determine how good the Gophers will be this year.  The 2014 offense was solid, particularly behind the legs of David Cobb on the ground.  And they struggled to really become much of a threat through the air unless TE, Maxx Williams was able to get in space and make some plays. Both of those weapons have moved on and were drafted to play on Sundays.  Quarterback, Mitch...

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

COLORADO STATE OFFENSE Change is constant, particularly in college football, but the Rams have had more than their fair share of it lately. Jim McElwain led the team to one of the best regular seasons in program history and then left before their bowl game to take the Florida job. Garrett Grayson broke just about every CSU passing record as a senior before being drafted by the Saints in the third round of the NFL draft. Left...

Wake Forest Football 2015 – Better, worse or about...

WAKE FOREST OFFENSE  Wake’s offense will almost certainly be better than a season ago, but admittedly there is really nowhere to go but up. Wake Forest had the 126th “best” offense in the country last season, according to Football Outsiders’ S&P+ ratings. Wake finished ahead of only SMU and Eastern Michigan. The Demon Deacons also had by far the worst rushing attack in the country.  Why, besides...

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

USC OFFENSE This is the biggest question headed into the 2015 campaign. Last year, USC’s offense went in spurts. They were able to dominate and move with pace at the beginning and end of the season, but that same torrid pace we saw against Fresno wasn’t on display again until the Holiday Bowl. It’s partially understandable why this was the case, however. USC HC Steve Sarkisian knew that he had to be protective over the...

Illinois & Louisville Football 2015 – Better,...

Illinois Football 2015 – Better, worse or about the same? ILLINOIS OFFENSE The offense pretty much hinges entirely on if Wes Lunt can stay healthy or not. If Lunt stays upright, this offense should hum. WR Mike Dudek will miss the OOC schedule, but will likely be back for the majority of Big Ten play. Dudek and Geronimo Allison give Lunt two legitimate deep threats on every passing down which should open plenty of room...

New Mexico Football 2015 – Better, worse or about ...

Three questions about New Mexico Football 2015 Can the Lobos offense be better in 2015? In 2014 New Mexico was one of the premier rushing teams in the nation. They averaged 310 yards per game which was good for 4th in FBS.  The Lobos triple option is hard for teams to cover because it requires extreme discipline and more often than not defensive breakdowns led to big plays but big plays alone will not score you points. The...
