My goodness could you imagine if the whole football world got flipped on its head so early? There wasn't all that much chaos as a whole last season so that happening would more than make up for it.
I think that says a lot about where the program is right now. It should take a Saquon-esque effort for young guys to see the field, instead of having to throw them out there because of lack of depth. There's a lot to be excited about with this group!
I think Minnesota could be a pretty respectable team this year. Heading to Minneapolis in late November does not sound like fun, especially after traveling to East Lansing. Thankfully there's a bye week in between but that game just feels so 2015 Northwestern to me.
Happy Halloween Matt
