  1. Welcome to Mr. Jones.

    Go Huskies!!!

  2. Best of luck to DJ, sorry things didn't work out. Go Irish!

  3. Welcome to NIU! I am an Alabama alum living in Western Iowa. I wish you the best of luck, and the opportunity to compete instead of being some pretty boy's human shield. I have nothing respect for Coach Novak and the Huskies, and am sure you will thrive with a classy coach in a solid program.

    Roll Tide!

  4. Mr Schatten has no class with the pretty boy comment. That being said, I am a ND fan but a Western Michigan Student. Do your thing DJ, and dont hurt us to bad, I dont think the Bronco's have ever seen anything like you. Go Irish
