Tribune: Three QBs in the Running for Northern Illinois' Job
"I would love it if someone would separate himself in practice and we knew this was the guy. I'm still hopeful that can happen. That is how a team functions best. But I've been through it where the competition bled into the season. That could happen too."

Extra points: Jordan Nettles, a freshman running back from Romeoville, has been the breakout star through two weeks of camp. Carey said it might be difficult to keep Nettles off the field despite the Huskies' depth at the position behind Jordan Huff, who rushed for 703 yards on 6.3 yards per carry last season.

From his High School highlights Nettles looks like a home run hitter. We have three running backs like that now. Huff, Jones, and Nettles( if he doesn't redshirt).

They're all very different runners with home run potential so it will be interesting to see how they're rotated.

This is seriously the nightmare that never ends, please can we get a damn coach who is capable of evaluating talent and making a decision.

Im starting to understand why Carey teams get hurt so much, nobody knows their role. That, and being tentative/not aggressive are recipes for injury

We know Carey could do nothing right in your mind; but could it be ... a) he already has his starter picked but sees no value in tipping his hand to the competition or b) he is giving every opportunity possible to your guy (Childers) to win the spot, but to date he simply hasn't proven to be the best choice

You will remember how Carey finally settled on Hare as a starter after the Northwestern game in '14. He might use the BC game to determine his starter this year.

It is time for Carey to be dismissed, Im sorry but it is. He cannot even make the most important decision a head coach should make. He needs to go, there is no way to sugar coat this anymore
