Has anyone watched Bowers a lot? I've seen his stats, just wondered about the eye test.

I am sure Bowers will be here all summer throwing to the WR, RB and TEs.

May not matter who the QB is if offensive line is as offensive as advertised

Come on Eeyore, 3/5 of the likely starters are pretty much sitting out Spring Ball. You’ll get your chance in August.

OLine = no worries. Rarely look good in spring and with some starters sitting shouldn't expect much. One of those 3 won't start.

Childers, lot of grief on this board on him and understandably so, but the SOB did LEAD this team to a MAC title. It wasn't pretty and many times ugly. He does have more than some redeeming qualities.

I will give him that. He played his best game in the MAC Championship. Hope he’s gotten better but that era seems to be over. Look forward to seeing Bowers ball.

It would really be perfect for everyone if Childers leading the squad to a MAC Championship comeback is our lasting memory of him. Let Bowers, the almost guaranteed superior QB come in and take the job and let Childers be thought of fondly in NIU lore.

If Bowers was the QB under Carey , it would have been the same result though in all fairness to Childers. No one was succeeding in that offense

I propose a new rule. Let's stop talking about the previous coaching regime and focus on our current (very exciting) coaching staff.

One shining performance in Childers' career doesn't do it for me. Good luck to Bowers if he comes in and takes the job.

Said this before several times, worth repeating now. If Bowers evolves into #1, Huskies will need an experienced #2. Recall recent season Northern went through -- how many? -- 3 or 4 qbs. I forget now which season (2016?). But ---- happens.

On another note, glad to see Brinkman looking good. He caught several passes in traffic in that MACC, got some extra yardage, held onto the ball.

Does at one have any more notes on practices? Keep them coming. Inquiring minds want to know.
