Yup. Nice to walk out with a good win, but feeling like it should have been worse. Something the coaches can use, especially because we can't make stupid mistakes offensively against next week's defense.
It means nothing, you can't make comparisons like this. Different teams different years.
I can't, and yet I just did. I must be magic!
The reason I bring it up is because NIU fans expected (and based on their experience from the last seven years, not unwisely) a much closer game, and they know their team better than I do.
This demonstrates that the NIU program has consistently competed well (except for the blowout vs. Ohio State, who was #1 at the time) over the past 8 years. Their fans expected to be in this game, and were shocked by the end of the first half. That historically decent football team never quit, and still got thrashed.
