I have been following NIU football for more than thiry years, which I know is not as long as some people. I started in the Mark Kellar era. I have seen both the ups and downs. I have been to games where a few thousand hardy souls braved freezing temperatures, down their smuggled booze, and then by halftime were ignoring the game and planning their evening activities. What Joe Novak did for this program was nothing short of miraculous. People actually expect to win on a yearly basis, which is different than many years. Beating Alabama and Maryland is different than hoping to beat ISU and SIU (no insult to those other fine state schools intended). I hope NIU figues out a proper way to honor this man for what he did for the program.
