There’s nothing quite like the Northwestern secondary to cure what ails ya. In Drew Hare, NIU’s third quarterback to play in Evanston that day, the Huskies have found the guy to replace Jordan Lynch. Hare fired two touchdown tosses to Da’Ron Brown, the second of which was by far the most aesthetically pleasing play of the entire game.
Although that’s not saying much when...

Jordan Lynch was arguably the greatest player in NIU football history. You’d have to put the former Northern Illinois quarterback in the discussion for the MAC all-time Mt. Rushmore, if you don’t have him there already. But again, and it pains me that I have to say this in the first place, he’s not a NFL player. He may catch on with a practice squad somewhere, but if he makes...
