Rumor

Just a suggestion, Eric Eidsness has been confirmed as the new OC but there is still speculation (by me and others anyway) that he will also coach a position group (probably QBs as he did at SDSU), so I would list him as "rumored QB coach" in your post.

All 2 of them?

That's like 5% of the population of the Dakotas.

Robert Wimberly, ex Liberty Asst HC/DC, could be a name to keep an eye out for. He was a GA with Hammock at Wisconsin in 2003. Also was the LB coach under Turner Gill at Buffalo and recruited Khalil Mack.

I know we hired our OC E. Eidness, a few days ago, but it still has yet to be formally announced by the school (CH Hammock on radio yesterday would not comment on it). What is the big hold up in making it official?

Nice pull, I did see he was already following the NIU Athletics and Football twitters. That's 2 on the D side.

I guess I can not coach for NIU, I have hair. The three known coaches have bald heads? Is that a requirement?

Might be having a lot of pros coming back to Dekalb. Hammock tweeted Melvin Gordon wants to come to a practice, James White just said something on twitter about Hammock and wouldn't surprise Mack comes back once for a game with Wimberly getting hired. Everyone is saying nothing but good things about Hammock.

Is there anyone running off season conditioning? Are the kids doing things on their own? If we don't have structure is place are we falling behind?

I’m sure they’re all sitting around doing nothing, actually.

Dude relax, it's January 24.

Hammock has hit the ground running. He's recruiting BOTH coaches and players as we speak.

He got literally dozens of players to the convo Tuesday night. That's "structure" if you ask me!

Can we still complain about Carey on this thread or is it too late? :-)

Who cares. He is gone and I am excited about the future. Banana Hammock is the man. The past is for cowards and losers.
