I had already judged from his play the previous seasons. I realize it's one game and he had limited opportunities, but he doesn't appear to ever get any separation. He looks of average athleticism. And when you have those limititations, you'd better have great hands and win position battles. i dont see that either. Maybe he will have a great game next week and dispel all that. But I'm still waiting for that Blake moment.

Blake is fine

I'm probably a small portion (very small) that thinks they have a chance at 8 or 9 wins this year IF the defense stays healthy. I think the O-Line and run game will have its way with the MAC this year even with mediocre QB play. If the QBs hit the short ones and let the WR make some plays (Weasley, Beebe) they will get some good yards for the passing game as well.

That's awesome. You're #1 wr is "fine". I suppose our QB is "dandy". Here's the liked by most: Beebe, Huff,Wimann, Scharping, Shively, Steckler, Hawn, Brown, Corcoran,smith,Pugh, Johnson, Jones, Leroy, smalls, Williams, some Lurry.

The disliked: Graham, some Lurry. I added Blake. Yeah...so much hatred.

It's a bad loss. Fingers get pointed. Blake is average at best.

The #1 WR according to who? Beebe, assuming health, will be the most productive WR. I'm not even arguing Blake is anything more than average, but there's nothing wrong with being a solid, average WR. Canada and Deucee were slurped by this place for years for being average.

We have many hawk harrelsons. It's ok to be honest about things. Blake has limitations, I'd rather hear the truth than "fanboys" that can't provide an accurate or honest evaluation.

Blake was the second leading wr in yards last year. He has as many catches in his last 12 games as Beebe has in his last 22. It stands to reason he's your #1. But I agree that Beebe will lead to team in receptions this year. Especially if Graham returns to being starter. There's plenty of Love for this team. I called 7-5 and said I can't wait for this squad to get into conference play. Our weaknesses will look far better than they did Friday. But all teams have weak spots and we've been hammering our QB position. That spots tied to the WRs doing a good job as well. And I see Blake as sub par as a supposed #1. If he was a 3 like Brescacin or he was last year, then it's no concern. Btw-i loved Duecee. Thought he was underrated and under appreciated.

RE: Right before the half
I think the biggest problem right before the half is that the defense let BC score a TD in only about a minute with no timeouts. That was way too easy. The rest of the game I thought the defense did pretty well so I'm not sure what happened there.

But of course that problem was rooted in the conservative play calling when NIU had the ball. At some point hopefully NIU coaching will realize offense is important
