Weekly Football Press Conference Quotes - NORTHERN ILLINOIS OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE...Kill knows what to expect against from Wisconsin fans: Drunkenness.  Duh, but its kind of funny coming from his mouth.

"Until you play you don't know what those worries are. You can go though practice and you can simulate the game all you want through practice but it's not like going to Wisconsin in front of 70,000 people that have been partying all day and you go to play them at seven o'clock at night. There is no way you can simulate that.

Who you gonna call?

The bottom-line is you have to be ready. And you have to be ready for things that you can prepare for. You can't prepare for ghosts; you have to be prepared for things you've seen on film, and things you've seen in the past. And I imagine both of us will be a surprise on one thing or another."

News conference notes | Daily Chronicle...Coach Kill takes a page from JoePa's book about that Wildcat offense everybody's talking about:

"The Wildcat package, which was being run 20 years ago and they put a new name on it and it's nothing new, but somebody acts like they invented football."

Scout.com: CFN Five-Year Program Rankings - 61 to 80
...NIU pipes in at #63 on this list.  3rd in the MAC behind CMU & Ball State:

Program Analysis ... A MAC power that hasn't been able to get over the hump and win a title, the Huskies have gotten through the transition period from Joe Novak to Jerry Kill and is back to its high status. Decimated by injuries, NIU suffered through an ugly 2-10 2007 season, but quickly bounced back with a 6-7 campaign with a trip to the Independence Bowl. To stay this high, NIU needs to be in for a big season with a 9-3 2004 season, with three of the eight Quality Wins, not counting next year. On the plus side, the conference winning % should go up as the team continues to improve.

I usually don't like betting writeups, but this guy makes an excellent point:

With a lot of freshman on Northern Illinois 2-deeps Huskie fans can take solace in the fact that NONE of the freshman are listed as starters unlike a season ago.

Last year QB Chandler Harnish, RB Me'co Brown and WRs Nathan Palmer and Willie Clark were all playing their first year of college football last year.  It will be up to those guys to make an impact this year.
