Michael the Burner story
Rittenburg just did a piece on Michael Turners Heisman campaign. I would recommend reading it and retweeting. Love seeing our guys get love years after their careers have ended. I would love to see a documentary on that season. That season the Huskies had played a major part in on mid majors get opportunities for bowl games:

The 03 season was absolutely magical. Breaking news, I know.

Remember PTI debating that year whether NIU make the national championship after rising to #10 in the BCS rankings. Wish I taped it.

Yep---absolutely the FIRST team of our ilk to put a dent in BCS contention. Still remember the Sports Illustrated article (I think Kerry Wood might have been on the cover with the Cubs making the run in this region) with the story of NIU becoming darlings.
