If Jay Johnson wants to keep his job, I suggest he get Maliq Carr involved in the offense a heck of a lot more than last season.
Not only would it make throws for Payton Thorne (or Katin Houser) easier, but when Carr gets the ball in his hands, magic things happen. Whether it was the long run after catch against Wisconsin or being at the right place at the right time early against Indiana, Carr’s athleticism has only been seen in flashes and has yet to be a game-changer that we all know he can be.
Behind Carr are Jack Nickel, Tyneil Hopper, and Jaylan Franklin. He needs to step up and be the leader of that group this season.
