Nice article. That was well before my time at NIU. Interesting to see how good they were at their peak.

Great stuff, SAE! I was a press box spotter that year and saw a lot of Kraker to Petzke. The 1978 Huskies finished 5-6 in the slow rise under Pat Culpepper from the dismal 1-10 1976 season. Culpepper was gone after 1979 and 5-5-1, to be followed by Bill Mallory and the eventual MAC championship in 1983.

Lost to our non-rivals.

Thanks for posting.
