Apologies if this thread/topic has been discussed. But, a pure emperical analysis would suggest that Bradley is the master of second half adjsutments as far as defenses goes (Northwestern, Temple, Nebraska come to mind almost immediately and we can add Ohio State to this list too).
So, for me the next week's games comes down to how far ahead (or behind) we are at half. If our offense can hang around in a shoot out, it will give Bradley enough time to make his adjustments to stifle the opposition and give us a chance. I think the best synopsis of that remains Nebraska vs Northwestern/Ohio State. Even against Nebraska, the defense made some critical adjustments but the offensively-challeneged offense had fallen too far behind.
I saw a little bit of the Wisconsin-Illinois game and until Illinois zooked themselves on a botched punt, the Badger defense was really not very effective. The front four weren't getting any push upfront and we have seen McGloin can actually be adequate if he has some time. If we can stop BTN's favorite son Montee Ball, Russell Wilson (I may gets ome flak for this) isn't the best decision maker. I don't think he goes through his progressions before taking off.
So, if Nebraska game is any indication, we were torched up the middle by Burkehead in the first half but the Bradley's adjustments came through in the second half. If we can hang around or take a lead into halftime, I have no doubt Bradley and defense will shut down Montee Ball and Russell Wilson second half...
I do think this will be a game of two halves. The question comes down to how good/bad McGloin and team are in the first.
p.s. you ALWAYS make a two possession game.
