As usual, you can watch the game at Fatty's watch party. Go there people.
Guide to Central Michigan:

  • QB Dan LeFevour - Basically Chandler Harnish if Chandler Harnish spent every morning chopping down trees and eating several stacks of pancakes.
    WR/PR Antonio Brown - The fastest player that will be on the field. We'll stupidly "rugby" punt to him and he will return it to the house.
    LB Nick Bellore - Somehow plays every position on CMU's defense by himself and makes every tackle.

I can't figure out any way possible on paper that we beat the Chips, which means that we promptly will. My gameplan would be to run right at them, but all of our running backs our hurt and Coach Kill refuses to use sleeper stud Justin Anderson in his last game as a Huskie. We're screwed, which means we have the advantage.

I don't know...I've gotta feeling...Or you might say that I'm hooked on a feeling.

This will be the first NIU game that I have missed (watched or listened to) since 2005's West Division-clinching win over Western Michigan at home. The reason: I was on a plane. Today's reason: I am on a plane. Yeah, yeah I know they're adding wi-fi to airports/planes daily, but I'm that tech savvy or rich.

NIU is 1-0 in those games. Let's hope that streak holds up...GO HUSKIES!!!

And Go Rockets! <-----I'll need a shower after that statement, but bowl chances are bowl chances. Other games of interest:
