    NORTHWESTERN PRESEASON PREVIEW

    1) Coach's Outlook - As the new Head Coach of Northwestern, the WildCats plan to start and END the 2011 season strong. We return 7 Offensive starters and 9 defensive starters. Last season went down hill after Dan Persa was hurt during the Iowa game, so offensively we plan to spread the ball around a bit more with a healthy mix up of passes and runs. Keeping Persa healthy will be a priority so don't look for him to be a leading rusher and we look to get our back up QB's as much experience as possible. Backup QB spot will be between the Speedy Colter Cain or the very large Evan Watkins. With our experience on defense in the secondary and Bryce McNaul and Vince Brown leading the front seven we plan to be a very aggressive defense. Mosley, a Aggie Alum plans on bringing the Wrecking Crew style of defensive play to A&M.

    2) Key Offensive Players - Jeremy Ebert (WR) -Will be the main target for Dan Persa (QB) and he will be protected by the veteran (LT) Al Netter . Running Back Mike Gumpy will try and turn Northwestern into more of a run and shoot offense from the usual spread team.

    3) Key Defensive Players - Brian Peters and Jordan Mabin lead a very expereinced WildCat secondary and plan on being Ball Hawks with the aggressive defense. Vince Brown will harass QB's this year and plans to make short work of all Tackles, while the quick Bryce McNaul will be a terror as a blitzing linebacker that can drop intro coverage and lay the lumber on any running back.

    4) Top incoming Recruits - With so much experience on the field, many of the incoming freshman with get redshirtted to try and catch up with the rest of the team. A young talented O Line crew comes to Northwestern, along with another speedy QB Zack Oliver and his counter part 6" 3" WR Cameron Dickerson who could grow into the next Andre Johnson.

    5) Toughest real game - The Wildcats Visit the Huskers at Lincoln Nebraska also fighting off the Sea of Red.

    6) Toughest NCAA game - Penn State coming to visit will be tough with their new coach BiggSteve31, this will be a tough game as these two coaches don't know much about each other.

    7) 2011 Projection - We start the season having pretty formidable opponents until we visit Illinois, which will be our first real challange. Right after that we have Michigan at home, visit Iowa and then host Penn State, all before having to visit Indiana and Nebraska. After all this the Wildcats will return to easier opponents with Rice, Minnesota and Michigan State all at home. Worst case scenario I have picked the Cats go 8-4, while a undefeated schedule is not the farthest thing from possibility, but all and all a 10-2 season seems a bit more realistic.
