RE: NIU @ Illinois Game Thread
I pretty sure our team could beat Wheaton Warrenville South, 3 out of 5 times.

They are hanging on here, alot of mistakes in the past few minutes that sucked any momentum out of this.

We'll need UofI to lose this with mistakes,

That's standard for 3rd and a million with time on the clock. Play for field position. There isn't a coach in the country that wouldn't go for safe yards in that situation.

I'm actually surprised they are trading punches with UofI here and staying close this late, looks for UofI to use their big backs and a long time consuming drive.

Think 26-12 with 7 minutes left, and then Air Harnish takes over.

Defense held them down as long as they could. Offense just couldn't hold up their end.

Probably shouldn't have used the word "hold"

Can't afford to give up anything more than a FG here.

This isn't the late 90s. No moral victories here. Just aggravating, aggravating losses.

Good job keeping them to 3 though.

I want to see Harnish air it out here with a few minutes left...win or not...and hit some longer passes. This is the test for the team. No more runs on 3rd and long please. And, I'm now fairly sure we'll win more than lose in MAC play.

We're down 2 possessions. If we make two extra points it's probably a 20-14 game.

Because Kill didn't recruit a FG kicker?

The start of the season looks like the same mediocre team that can hang around with the big boys but can never get over the hump. (.500)

Down 9.

With a decent high school kicker the score is 20-14.
