RE: Kent State - Homecoming Game
If Carey and staff couldn't see that Huff was a special kind of talent before then they were blind. Huff has the type of athletic gift that isn't just coachable, he was born with it. He has size, speed, and agility. He should have been the #1 last season and should have been the starter to begin this season. Just as Santa should have been the starter to begin the season. Play your best players and stop holding them back. Huff and Santa have earned that by their play on the field.

Hey Dog Pound North, Jones is still better than Huff, right? 03-lmfao
Santa isn't the answer, right? Still want Graham, right? 03-lmfao

The 111th NIU Homecoming is on 10/7/17! Buy a ticket today and @niucoachcarey will buy your second! #HuskieNation

It'd be nice if all the alums who came out of the woodwork after the Nebraska game saying how proud they were of Huskie football to actually show it by coming to Huskie Stadium this weekend.

It still irks me that we had a huge crowd of NIU at Northwestern in 2014, but we can't draw nearly as many fans to DeKalb. It's not as if Barb City is in the Dakota Territory. Tickets are cheaper and traffic better too at NIU games.

I just wonder if most fans have made the judgment that the stakes are not high enough for MAC play. NIU has fortunately wore out attendance in Detroit. Most realize that unless you are talking about an undefeated team, flawless MAC performance gives you a crap bowl game, and to even make this worse, the best MAC team is not even assured the best crappy bowl. A playoff system allowing access for MAC champ would skyrocket attendance

Huskies have enough trouble winning the "crap bowl games". Their last bowl victory was the Go Daddy Bowl after the '11 season.

Carey figured it out. Just took him a couple years too long.

Huff might have had the talent to run like he did the last two games but I believe he rarely showed that much toughness his first three years. That is why JB played more even though Huff did well as a change of pace back and he did have trouble blocking and at a time had fumble issues. The last two games he has reminded me of Chad Spann and I hope it continues.

Huff should be grateful to the coaching staff for saving his body a pounding over the last couple years. Rod really does make you scratch your head sometime and say .... wtf.

He rarely showed that toughness? He's gotten more than 100 yards every time he's gotten 15+ carries, I believe. All he ever needed was the oppotunity...
