Trying to predict how we'll play and a score this year is like throwing darts. So, I threw darts (in my head) and came up with:

NIU:27
WMU: 24

I keep hoping!

Just as it was with Lombardi, this is all on Cremascoli’s shoulders. Hope he’s ready, and when he throws a pass, hope the receivers have the ability to catch it.

Sounds like it’s time to move back to the cold and snow. I’ll let you borrow my shovel.

I missed last week (thankfully) traveling home from a work trip. Now that we are officially eliminated from everything…

Not sure what to say, this season has been brutal. 3 pretty bad teams to wrap up, so maybe they can build some semblance of positives to take into the offseason.

I think NIU has a chance to win one more and that chance is against Akron. I predict losses this week and definitely next week. No guarantee, but they have a better chance against the Zips.

Going to enjoy some good MAC QBs tonight on ESPN2 as Rourke and Gabbert go at it.

Don’t look now but the power is shifting to the East. Next season they’ll have Rourke, Gabbert, Irons Jr., Snyder and Schlee.

I mean Miami next week lost to BGSU and WMU in Oct. That being said, you are sadly probably correct.

If we only beat Zips… IDK

Gabbert just got back for Miami last week. So that makes things a little tougher.

Didn’t realize that. I have followed other MAC teams a little less, not as interesting when we are not competitive. So yeah, we probably lose that

Miami also has the #1 defense in the MAC. Doesn’t bode well for a freshman walk-on QB. They’d probably be in the hunt for the east title had Gabbert not missed a couple conference games.

I'd just like to see Cremascoli make some good reads and WRs catch some passes. I'd like to see less emphasis on the run and empty the roster to see who can actually play on this team. If you can't play then see ya.

Ball state may have less athletic WRs than NIU

EMU has only finished below .500 two times in the last seven seasons. Meanwhile NIU just locked in its third losing seasons in the last four. Crazy that EMU is now a much more stable football program than NIU.

I was encouraged by Nevan's play last week but one source of concern is that a mother of one of the NIU players posted on Facebook that we have some additional injuries to some key players. If that is the case it will be difficult to overcome.

Another disturbing comment that she made was that although NIU players have disciplined and tough practices they do not have an appropriate emphasis on diet and nutrition. They are primarily offered junk food to eat ... if this is the case, and I suspect that it is, it is sad and an indictment of NIU athletics because if it is true for football it might be true for the other sports as well. Come on AD Frazier you can do better.
Injuries aside...most Moms complain (either openly or in secret) about their 21 year old son's diet! and haircut...and sleep patterns...and some of the guys he hangs out with...and no don't pursue that girl please...and stay away from so and so...and...why can't you be more like your older brother...and those jeans look awful on you...and....or was this just me?

Didn't we just build a nutrition center? I've seen it in person. It's well stocked and it looks operational. Not dusty and empty...

Yep. We are now fighting with Akron for the honor of being the worst team in the worst FBS conference. That’s why our game with the Zips in a couple weeks is so important. The losing team gets the trophy!
