Early storyline for the EIU game
The starting QB for Eastern is former NIU commit, Mitch Kimble. Kimble committed to the Huskies, then bailed for Syracuse when Dave Doeren left for NC State.

Kimble led EIU to a 22-20 comeback win over Indiana State yesterday, throwing a 15 yd TD pass with three seconds left to play.

Not unless you want to send him a check for the buyout money

RE: Early storyline for the EIU game
Our defense is good enough to beat the teams like EIU this year and the running game will be able to get yards against a smaller school defense. We will win this one.

Translation:

He didn't want to play for Roderick. Good choice on his part.

Hope we draw better than that for an instate opponent. Last night's crowd was terrible for bringing in a big name opponent. I am sure Frazier is frustrated after listening to what so many said they wanted, making it happen and then drawing a small crowd even with all of the special promotions.

I guess playing so late on a Friday night did not help but I still felt there should have been 20,000 for a game like BC.

Second that. The Western Illinois game cost the team a bowl game last year so I do not see NIU losing two straight at home to an FCS school. Probably will need this one to get to six wins this year.

I thought before the season NIU would finish end this season somewhere between 5 - 7 to 7 - 5 and after going to the game last night I didn't see anything to change my perception of that. There are a lot of good things going on across the roster but without elite production from the QB position it will be really tough to win the MAC.

If it had been on a Saturday afternoon, there'd be over 20,000 there.
