I'm not saying Santa or Graham are Harnish, but they've both improved it seems, and that 2010 year was when Harnish really stepped up.

That 2010 team also played some Power 5 teams and went 2-2. They really could have been 4-0 just like this year. Also not saying they run the MAC table like 2010 did, but I really like this team going into MAC play.

Huff is officially a complete back, his blocking has been exceptional this year. He is the best back in the conference.

Was just looking at the media guide and NIU has only one 25+ yard rush this season. That's very unlike NIU and Huff, specifically. He's bound to bust some big runs soon. That also shows the offense has been consistently just moving the ball efficiently. Once they start making big plays in the run game, you're going to see consistent 40+ ppg performances. That starts this week.

03-lmfao Graham has improved???? Care to back that up with facts???? What an idiot.

The kid shouldn't start anymore but that doesn't mean he hasn't improved. He was responsible for nearly 300 yards on offense his one game this year.

Just because he isn't great doesn't mean he didn't get better. Maybe if you weren't such a dick and used facts and didn't troll people you'd have at least a neutral rating. I have yet to see you use empirical evidence on one argument. You just call people idiots and say you know this and that.

You're also now bringing this up after you had already commented but at that point I hadn't disagreed with you on another thread. You're going out of your way to troll.

And still waiting for empirical evidence for your most recent ridiculous statement.

Agree completely regarding the injuries Huskie Jon.

However 2003, special teams were arguably the best in recent history in 2003.

Special teams this year in my opinion needs improvement for NIU to win the MAC.

1) Returns for TD's are unacceptable.
2) Our kicker has not yet proven that he is as good as Steve Azar yet either.

No rating system is perfect, but by ESPNs adjusted QBR.

2016 Ryan Graham 37.6
2017 Ryan Graham 56

To be honest, the way Childers ran the ball against SDSU gave me Chandler flashbacks.
