Welcome to the first look and picks for the opening week games of the 2017 college football season. These quick thoughts are being done in early June, with the real Fearless Prediction and expanded breakdown coming in August.
Early June First Thought: What’s Going To Happen?
The two basketball schools have some amazing offensive coaches. Be grouchy if this is anything less than a terrific shootout – even if it’s one-sided.
After a bit of a power outage late last season, Louisville needs to fire up the machine in a hurry with North Carolina and Clemson coming up next. The true tune-up games come later, but after losing the final three games of the 2016 campaign, all that matters now is getting off to a big start.
Purdue gets the big, national TV stage in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for its new head coach.
Jeff Brohm isn’t expected to make Purdue as offensively amazing as Western Kentucky was last year – at least not right away – but he has enough pieces in place to start bombing away from the start. But does he have the linebackers who can keep Lamar Jackson from tearing off big run after big run?
The linebackers are going to be the strength of the Boilermaker defense, but that doesn’t mean the D will be good enough to slow down an angry Louisville offense that should come out roaring.
On the other side, the Cardinal secondary should be good enough to shut down – or, at least, keep in check – the Purdue receiving corps, while the pass rush should camp out behind the line.
This is all about the Jackson show, and while he won’t disappoint, Purdue will have its positive moments.
