Ball was good because Wisconsin's offense was balanced with Wilson. And because they had a very good OLine and scheme.
At this point, Wilson, the OLine coach, and OC are gone.
Redd on the other hand, faced a stacked box and was saddled with poor QB play, and an average OLine.
Penn State's offensive future is brighter than Wisconsin's:
Better QB play, Real Offensive Weapons (Lewis, AB, etc), a better offensive scheme, a great OLine coach, and the Best S&C program in the US.
Penn State will be better than Wisconsin from 2013 on.
You can blame the o-line and I don't disagree that they've hindered Redd. However, Silas has still had plenty of opportunities where he's been in the open field, yet he didn't have the extra gear to take it to the end zone. I mean, has he ever broke off a long run for a TD? I don't think so. That's not a coincidence and isn't explained solely by poor blocking. Just look at a guy like McCoy (a 2nd rounder, mind you) who routinely broke off long runs at Pitt behind a horrendous o-line.
I'd say Redd would maybe be a 5th rounder if he came out early.
