Welcome to Red and Black Attack

Its finally here!  After writing for more than a year at my old blog with the same name, I felt that I needed to expand the features and capabilites to cater to the appetite of Northern Illinois Huskie Nation .  Luckily, I found SB Nation to be THE premier sports blog network out there.

Coverage of NIU and the rest of the MAC continues to grow every day and I decided to kick-start that coverage providing a perspective that the majority of news outlets can't reach.  There are a few MAC blogs out there run by fans or journalists, so I am not alone in this quest to show all that is the Mid-American Conference.

NIU has had produced RBs Michael Turner and Garrett Wolfe, WRs Justin McCareins and Sam Hurd, OTs Ryan Diem and Doug Free and DT Hollis Thomas.  The MAC itself has produced numerous NFL stars including Ben Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich, Chad Pennington and Jason Taylor.

It is only fit that we have a new URL the same year that NIU has a new head coach in Jerry Kill.  He brings a new-found excitement to the program, providing a spark to not only the team, but the growing Huskie fanbase.  I bleed cardinal red and hope to boost excitement for the Huskies and join the NIU fans together.
