    Stuff you want to see this year

    My expectations are pretty low for this season but I do think there are a lot of exciting and interesting wrinkles this team can exploit. I do think 2015 can be a really good year.

    1. Iím very interested to see how we use the receivers this year. I think the group still hasnít been totally productive, but Iíd like us to have some Todd-Blytheian type packages but with both Montgomery and Lazard on the edges, hopefully one of them can get in single coverage and we can just have some plays where Grant just lobs it on a fade. I think this can help solve some lingering issues in pass protection letting him get the ball out of his hands, and can also create some seams in the running game for the backs or Rohach himself.

    2. There is a lot to be interested in on the defensive end. Man there is a lot of question marks but Iím very curious to see if Knott is healthy, the development of Cousin, and what the heck happens with the safeties.

    3. Back to Rohach, I do think and hope he wins the starting job. We saw some really good things from him. The other thing I want to see in regard to quarterbacks though is I hope they donít get too careful trying to protect them. I do think Rohach is better but I donít think heís light years ahead of Richardson, and the QB rush IMO is an essential element to the offense. I do expect 62%+ completion percentage and I think we would see a totally different offense with that stat.

    4. Just from a personal mental health standpoint Iíd love to see us beat KSU. So many close losses to them in the last 7 years or so. Itís early, they are replacing a ton of starters on defense, I have a tremendous amount of respect and hate for Snyder, and I just want to see the program get over that hump early in the season.

    Darius Lee-Campbell is a future All-American Heisman winner, so what I would like to see is us make our QB change before the 8th game of the season and give him the ball by the second half of the NDSU game when we are tied 7-7 but have had 5 bagillion chances to score but both Rohach and Richardson don't take advantage of the situation they are given.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    I was hopeful last season that we wouldn't see the whole, "rush up to the line in a hurry up only to stop, have everyone look over to the sideline, get set, have everyone look over to the sideline again, then run a read handoff and get tackled by the backs of our own linemen". Good thing we got up to the line so quickly!

    This year my hope is the same. That will be a major step of progress for me. Let's just play some football and stop out-thinking ourselves.

    You might just have to settle for an effective offense that does look to the sideline. IIRC, Mangino's Kansas team was one of the first schools I saw do it, and it sounds like he plans to continue.

    I suppose if we get some positive results from it then that will change. Also it's a little better since Coach Rhoads isn't stuffing "no huddle" and "fast tempo" quotes down my throat so far.

    Don't think you will get your wish as they have already said we would be going no huddle.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    I would like to see a competent offense where there isn't confusion on every play about who is supposed to be in the game, what the tempo is supposed to be, what formation they're supposed to be in, etc.

    Mess' offense was the worst in that regard.

    Stuff I want to see:

    1. Play with intensity and passion
    2. Have an identity - especially on offense
    3. Do something creative and unique - especially on offense

    In what will probably be another terrible season, I'd like if there's a chance I could enjoy watching a game or two.

    I want to see confidence from whoever the starting QB is. I want him to play like he isn't scared to make a mistake and get benched. The QB carousel has to stop. Pick one and be done. The starter has to "play to win," not "play to not lose."
