  • The oddity of a spring season
  • How much development can happen over the truncated break?
  • What style of offense do the Coyotes play?
  • Offensive players to watch
  • What does this defensive line look like?
  • Where can Kansas attack the defense?
  • Special Teams strengths
  • Does the late coaching change help or hurt the Coyotes chances?
  • How does the game need to look to give South Dakota a chance at the upset?
