Looks more like the DeKalb Chronicle's view of the Huskies.

Yep, and while I'm not that optimistic regarding the receiving corps, we always seem to find some new WRs that are playmakers so I'm not as pessimistic as the writer of the article.

Huskers view of Huskies
So in summary, NIU's very own beat writer tells Nebraska we suck, poised for our worst season in 10 years and our program seems to be a complete dumpster fire. Couldn't have been a more negative article. Wish this Seversen guy would go back to Oregon and we could get someone like John Sahly or Steve Nitz like we had for many years before. Those guys were great and at least tried to spin NIU in a positive light. Obviously, we have issues at QB and some unanswered questions, and I don't think any of the fans are predicting a 10 win season by any means, but this article was just flat depressing. He sucks

Why do we hire guys that don't know Huskies culture? It's not hard to win 6 games in the MAC when you have quality players and a steady Quarterback. NIU will be better next season

IMO, there are way too many question marks to say NIU will be better. And we lost some quality players from a 5 - 7 team. At this point, there is nothing to suggest to me that NIU will be better....except hope.

We lost 4 games by 7 pts or less even with a ridiculous amount of injuries and awful QB play. We lost a couple good players yes, but WMU, CMU and UT lost some damn good players as well. I'm confident that if we stay healthy and these QBs get an entire off season to prep and get more reps that we can finish over 500 this season. I agree with BDB5yp, the MAC doesn't scare me

The big question is IF we stay healthy. Based on our track record, I'd say the chances of that are not great.

For NIU to go far in the MAC, a superb QB is needed. I see no evidence of that yet. Handing the ball off the vast majority of plays - added to the ubiquitous bubble screens and jet sweeps - won't do it. We need a QB who can pass. Plus, we need a play book that uses the middle of the field sometimes. Still way too many questions for me.

I agree the best QB gets th furthest in the MAC, and hence it will finally be Toledos year. But after that it's an equal race. NIU will be better. Graham will be better just by experience. With Ryan, the offense will be stuck in a horizontal pass attack, but will be better with a home run Rb like Huff. That's the point of that style offense. The OC should now know how to use Graham to the best of his limited abilities. That's worst case with Graham beating out Childers and Santa. If one of these two emerge we will be that much better at QB. Losing Kenny hurts, but we now have a true deep threat in Wesley.
Def will play faster with a full year under new DC and young players gaining experience. Injuries haapppen, but to your best player on D and QB is bad luck. Expect this year to be turning point season back to top Mac in next couple seasons. 7-5 or 8-4.

A five win team with an awful head coach, no quarterback, and no wide receivers. That is NIU.

The article is depressing, but it is very fair and not overstated. Criticism of the NIU beat writer is unwarranted.
