Been a little behind lately, so here it goes. Doeren says that around 50% of what he wanted to accomplish this spring has been installed. Let's take a look at the progress, shall we? Two more weeks till the Spring Game.
- How does Jamison Wells juggle both his football and baseball careers at the same time? Should he just focus on one sport if he wants to be successful?

- An official article in which Dave Doeren says that QB Jordan Lynch "has swag"
- Senior DT Nabal Jefferson is out for the spring with a foot fracture. More on Settle and Lynch performing well. Yet another media platform where I can see the "swag" quote.
- Seeing reps at TE are Luke Eakes, Tim Semisch and DeVonte Majors. Jason Schepler will be back from his ACL injury in the fall. Will this group of athletic TEs finally make that impact NIU fans have been hoping for for years from the positon?
- The pre-scrimmage practice was sloppy as well.
