2022 Attendance Results: LCH-2, PT-2, TomOs-1, Trashman-1
Trash hits NU on the number and is a little high on MN, but he takes the score winner. PT comes with a 138 non-fair weather fans for his second attendance victory. For future reference vs WI? The scanned numbers are going DOWN lol.
Hete are the unfortunate numbers:
Passing Offense: NU 58th (244yds), MI 93rd (216yds)
Rushing Offense: NU 75th (143yds), MI 4th (250yds)
Scoring Offense: NU 86th (25.6pts), MI 5th (42.2pts)
Passing Defense: NU 74th, MI 2nd
Rushing Defense: NU 107th (183yds), MI 1st (72yds)
Scoring Defense: NU 92nd (29.4), MI 3rd (12.2)
What does this all say? A 31 point spread for the home team who dominate in every important statistic. I will say, NU is T-5th in punt blocks with three....so keep an eye on that development! ;)
Looking at previous weeks, you see the difference in good B1G teams who know their identity and a NU team that doesn't. 32 carries for Brown, 32 carries for Ibrahim. The 4.4 average between them is not huge, but keeps them a constant threat. Grant has 33 the last 2 games averaging 5.1 and 5.5 per carry. Yet we (ahem Whipple) just can't help his pass-happy self. Grant getting one carry each of the first four 2nd half drives is really inexcusable.
There's little reason to believe we can be in this game much past a quarter. Maybe MJ convinces Whip to go 2006 Cally and keep us in it....but not really lol. Preventative beat-down approach? Might look better but doesn't really matter long term. Get the feeling after this bad loss, the MJ bandwagoners become a bit more muted....but now Frost is always there to blame lol.
The O/U feels pretty easy at 48.5. MI might go over that on their own.
NU 9 MI 45
