Even three weeks after Northern Illinois introduced Thomas Hammock as its new football coach, the words of Sean Frazier are clear in my head – as I’m sure is true of Huskies fans as well.
“We win championships here, OK,” the NIU athletic director said at Hammock’s introductory news conference Jan. 18. “We graduate at the highest level. It’s time for us to get back to the New Year’s Six Bowls. We need to get back there. We were there, we know what that looks like. The players have made it clear that that’s their objective.”
That’s the red meat the fan base has been dying to hear for a long time.
