We just lost to...Temple

Disclaimer: this post has been edited 3 times because of my own stupidity.

Per Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

Etymology: probably from Edward A. Murphy died 1990 American engineer

: an observation: anything that can go wrong will go wrong


OK where do I start?

WRs Britt Davis & Greg Turner were both out for this game for some reason. So was backup RB David Bryant.

Apparently the absence of Greg Turner was a huge one, considering he is our holder for the field goals. WE MISSED 2 EXTRA POINTS?!!! WTF? Nendick is the NIU record holder for most XPs made consecutively (I'm pretty sure). Guess who the holder was...

JEFF FONTANA


Is he smiling or not smiling? The NIU FB Picture Bio's Mona Lisa

WERE THE MISSED XP's HIS FAULT?


“The first one was a high snap, a real high snap. [Jeff] Fontana did a great job getting it down and Chris just couldn’t get a really good kick on it,” Novak said.

“The second one, I don’t know what happened. It looked good, but I don’t know what happened. It’s a shame two missed extra points were the difference in the game.”

I mean seriously. He cost us the SIU game & almost the Idaho game. He is the bane of my existence.

Anyways, where was I?

QB Dan Nicholson SUCKED going 12 for 25 for 101 yds? Hahaha you have to be kidding me! He also fumbled the ball that was taken back for a TD and hurt his ankle in the 4th quarter. I bet you he just wanted to get out of the game because he was playing SO bad.

Is Ryan Morris the answer @ QB? I seriously doubt it. He wasn't a scholarship recruit and takes FOREVER in the pocket to throw the ball (from what I've seen). In this game he got sacked twice.

There were positives:

RB Justin Anderson again proved his worth rushing 29 times for 168 yds and 2 TDs. He is now a top-10 rusher in the nation.

WR Marcus Perez was back and he caught 5 passes for 63 yds.

On the Defense this could be a good or bad thing depending how you look at it.
SS Alex Kube
had 14 tackles (6 solo) and CB Melvin Rice had 12 tackles (8 solo). Our secondary guys shouldn't have that many tackles.

#10 LB Cory Hanson continues his tear with 10 tackles (4 solo) and another secondary guy FS Bradley Pruitt had 9 tackles (6 solo).

True frosh Defensive Tackle DJ Pirkle had 2 sacks for a total loss of 28 yds. Also CB Chase Carter had a pick, which is his 2nd of the year.
