PODCAST: 2017 Nevada Wolf Pack football preview

The Jay Norvell era begins.

NCAA Football: Nevada at UNLV Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

Jeremy and Matt are back to preview the Nevada Wolf Pack and their 2017 season. The big ticket item surrounding this team is the new coaching staff where Jay Norvell is taking over from Brian Polian. This offense is expected to be a pass-happy attack which we are coining #AirWolf due to its tendencies.

There is a quarterback battle brewing with Ty Gangi who started the back half of last year as an injury replacement for Tyler Stewart is being challenged by former Alabama quarterback David Cornwell. Despite who is quarterback the offense will be throwing a lot and handing the ball off to James Butler, and he very well could be the best running back in the conference.

The defense needs work as the front seven was one of the worst in the country last year, but the plus side is that they return nearly all of those players.
