Yeah, the reports on the NIU site, and from HuskieWire are encouraging--and good reporting and writing from both sources. Like what I'm hearing about Harbison. Sounds like this could be a special year for him, and he sounds very motivated.

And I like Marcus, who should be a good contributor this year and after this year it seems that Valentine kid could step up to the quick man role

That's interesting because there are 3 RBs in front of him. If he gets playing time it means he really stood out.

I know what you are getting at, with Harbs, Jones, and Nettles ahead of Valentine. But it seems like Coach has pointed him out on several occasions as standing out for an underclassman and there may be something to it. Plus I think Hammock is decent at evaluating RB talent
I wouldn't be too surprised. He looked good in the spring game.

Or the first Valentine. I'm optimistic but haven't seen him enough yet. But of course I haven't seen any practices either.

I have had a subscription to the Chronicle online for years. I read it daily because it keeps me up to date on the happenings in DeKalb/Sycamore, including NIU and the Huskies.

How much is it a month after the 1st month ?

Welcome to the board, HuskieManiac!

I pay $9.99 a month for everyday access.

Thanks!!! Would you say they keep a decent amount of huskie content on there year round?

Not year round. It slows to a trickle after basketball season and picks up again over the summer for football. Of course, they will cover when anything happens, whether with the sports teams or the university. Their coverage of the university is very good.

Chad Spann went from 6th string to stud quickly. That is what I meant
