No it's his son Dan. I noticed he's not listed but he's on staff.

While there were some concerns, overall I think there's a really good team hidden behind an offense that just needs to find what it can do best consistently. BC's defense forced NIU's offense into some things they're not good at. Other big, fast defenses have done the same to other Huskie teams.

The play calling wasn't atrocious either. The Beebe 4th and 1 was. That was really dumb. But the now infamous 3 runs before half? On 1st and 2nd they looked like qb reads. If Graham had kept it, he'd still be running right now. Definitely on 1st down. There was no contain outside at all. And even on 2nd he would have gained at least the first down.

Graham needs confidence. Confidence to quit playing so safe. He needs a nice run of MAC games where he can establish himself. He will never be great(stop jumping up when you're running and about to get hit), but he could guide an adequate offense until it finds its next big play maker

Second that on the runs. He's going to get popped bad and on the one play he completely turned his back when seeing the bc player.. Needs to be less tentative

Boston College Game Thoughts
I saw someone had posted that Coach Dierson was the staff member that go hit on the sidelines during the game and had to get an air cast. Turns out it was one of our big donors, Ken Chessick. He just posted this for those who care:

On Friday night, I was standing on the sidelines, rooting for my NIU players, about five players between me and the sideline, and we ran a sweep. The BC defender tackled our player and they collcided at high speed. The wave of players before me split like Moses and the Red Sea, and the tackled and tackler rolled in a wink of an eye and hit my right leg below the knee. They ran back to the field and I was left with an unstable, dislocated right knee and rupture of four knee ligaments. The fantastic orthopedic surgeons on the sideline sprung into action and immediately reduced the dislocation and put me in an immobilizer for my knee. I cannot express my gratitude to Drs. Behl, Choi, and Bodner for their expert care, which prevented many bad potential complications and got my treatment started. I was seen by Dr. Nho at Rush yesterday, and the good news is that I have avoided horrendous complications. The bad news is that I will be in a non-weight bearing brace for 6-8 weeks, hoping that some or all of the ruptured ligaments heal, If not, surgery will be the option, and then the rehabilitation starts. If I was a professional athlete, my career would be over. How much tennis, cycling, hiking, sailing, scuba diving, walking, and skiing (all of which are important parts of my life; even old jocks like to play) is in my future remains to be seen. At present, I am in a lot of right leg pain with lots of swelling and discoloration, and my world consists of my bedroom, lounge chair, and bathroom. I want to thank everyone who has reached out to me and expressed their empathy. I love my Huskie family and I will be back. Next time (next year), I will stay ten yards behind the play, not in first down territory. Like McArthur said, "I shall return!"

Chessick is not only good for his money, but for his flesh and blood as well!

The sideline is a very dangerous place. Those players come up fast!
