HUSKIE Defense needs some work


Yours truly was at Soldier Field and witnessed the one-sided victory by the Badgers.  Make no mistake about it, Wisconsin is for real.  Having said that, NIU has a lot of work to do on the defensive side of the ball.  In my opinion, this will not be a one year makeover.  We've got holes to fill on the D line and linebacker.  Fortunately we have a head coach with strong defensive credentials.

I was really disappointed in our offensive performance, but I did some evaluation after the game.  We don't have a Wolffe or Spann in the backfield to help open up the passing game.  Hopkins has speed and moves, but I have my doubts about Womble....time will tell.   Harnish certainly has running skills, but the Badgers shut that down.

Bottom line:  this team is a "work in progress" and combine that with a whole new coaching staff.  This may require some patience from the Huskie Nation.
