Indiana vs. jNW


With all due respect to our favorite Wildcat (LincolnParkWildcat), the method to beating Northwestern is clear: Our guys have to play with consistency and discipline. Indiana looked a step slower across the board than did the Wildcats, and on offense jNW was able to exploit that both by misdirection and by relying on Indiana to chase the ball rather than staying at home and protecting their space.

Now, I only saw the sixty minute version of the game, so missed many drives that may indicate otherwise, but the Hoosiers moved the ball on the NW defense. What hurt them were dropped passes and a tendency to run east-west. If our O-line can open the same kind of gaps as they have in the last couple games, our power running game will gash the Wildcats. Hopefully McGloin has corrected last week's tendency of throwing behind the receivers; if he has, we have too many good receivers for NW to cover.

Penn State 38, jNW 27.

I'm sure many of you can offer a much more sophisticated analysis. Please do so; I look forward to reading your insights!
