    [2022] Week #15 - Saturday Morning

    GG. I like the fight we showed. Closer than I thought it would be. You throttled me on the ground.

    [2022] BOFA Presents: The Bowl Limbo Report

    It hasn't been the best of seasons, but I was left with hardly any freshmen and didn't have a great roster. This pumps me up as a first year HC. Thought 3-9 was very likely.

    Thanks. It was a solid game. Was a test for me for sure to see where I was as a first year coach. Can see the potential with your program. Would love to see how we match up five years down the road.

    Oregon State University announces changes to coaching staff

    With Oregon State losing some key players next year, and going into a rebuild, will you try and recruit players for a new scheme or players to fit in with the underclassmen you have now?

    Colorado State Unveils New Head Guy

    Anonymous question: Now at CSU, what are your goals recruiting wise to build this team back up to be the state power? Coming from the midwest, what types of schemes do you think we will see you run?

    Northern Illinois Looks For Fresh Start

    Bruce, thanks for your question. There is no doubt that I will look to be installing my own philosophy into how we do things here at NIU. Look, we have a lot of good pieces coming back and before I arrived, I don't think that the philosophy's really took advantage of the players we had and their capabilities. We have some really great pieces coming back. We have two really solid quarterbacks that will play this year. Charlie Sanford is my guy right now. Last year, I don't think that he was utilized as he should have been which led to some crazy looking numbers. The dude can play. We will be looking to throw the ball more this year and utilize his arm. Should something happen, Emmett Mast can step in and take over the offense. I do like what we have coming back on the line this year and I think we could surprise some people with our offense. Defensively, we want to be in your face. I don't care if people hate us, I want our players to hit hard and make the opposing team fear having to play us. We have an amazing linebacking core coming back and our secondary is pretty solid as well. We are going to bring pressure and hit you in the mouth every play. Recruiting wise, we are going to have to reload. We need to have a full class next year, if we don't, well they will run me out of here. I plan to connect with the players on a very personal level. If you don't give me everything on the field and in the classroom, we are going to have some problems. Being from the Midwest, I know the area is stacked with talent, especially from Illinois. I plan to look for upside and depth this recruiting cycle. From my preliminary view, this class can be really special and I think that will be reflected in the recruiting rankings. I plan to go out and get guys that match my scheme and I expect them to play tough. No longer are schools going to be able to come in and pluck whichever guy they want out of this state, not while I am around.
  10. Press Release After going 5-19 over the past two seasons, the Northern Illinois Huskies decided to move on and revitalize the program. Three years removed from three straight bowl appearances with no sense of direction have weighed heavily on Huskie fans and alums. Three different coaches over the past three years have began to take a toll on the student body and as a result, attendance has decreased mightily. We knew we needed to make a splash with this hire and make a splash we did. Today, marks Day One of MasonAsher's reign of head coach of the Huskies. He comes to us from Indiana, where he was the head coach of a nationally ranked high school program for years. His ties to the area will greatly benefit the Huskies as they look to bring in new talent. MasonAsher is looking to revitalize our program and take it back to the top, where it belongs. Big thanks to @npklemm for allowing us to hire a coach that we truly believe in. We at Northern Illinois truly think we have found a diamond in the rough here. Our new head coach MasonAsher will be taking questions below.
