OMG!!! NO!!!!!! Stop the presses! This is indeed breaking, shocking, and highly unexpected news! Thanks for sharing, Diehard. I look forward to reading the headlines in the Sun-Times and Tribune as well the lead story on the 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. news. Glad we have a couple days to calm down from the shock and excitement before the weekend.

We're going to have a good team but it all depends on how our QBs play, which is a big unknown right now.

Toledo is the biggest favorite in years to win the MACC @ -140 (bet 140 to win 100)

NIU is 10-1 fifth choice.

Western, Miami and Ohio are 2,3,4

Other wild cards to me is will Carey go into his usual white flag turtle position and not allow QBs to take any chances . Will Carey ignore skill level and go with his upper classmen bias again, and will a playmaker emerge that will allow NiU to score enough points to be competitive.

Carey won't be the only one wanting to ignore the skill level of our QBs.

If UT is not as good as advertised, we will win the West. We are a team of winners and we will win. Things are on the upswing again in Dekalb.

Huh? With no certainty at QB? And a coach who leaves a lot to be desired? 04-jawdrop

I mean NIU won't play Toledo or WMU until the 10th game of the year. Let's hope there's some QB certainty by then.

RE: BREAKING NEWS
This is still a great program hidden by our injuries the last 2 years. We know how to compete and win. I expect stability at QB. We will be STRONG on D and have a solid OLine. Expect our offense to not be as QB centric as in the past. Good things, we have good players and I am confident in the staff. This is a great program and no one should sleep on Huskies in 2017.

Whoa-whoa-whoa!!! What is this? optimism? Have you not read this board? The coach sucks. The AD sucks. The QB sucks. The WRs suck. The schedule sucks. The athletic office sucks. Everything sucks. We will have none of this enthusiasm for NIU football. Being a Huskies' fan is one of misery and complaining. Please comply.

Condescending, sarcastic or smarmy, I'll take optimism in any form. Just anything other than grumpy old man Archie Bunker complaining.
