After watching the Northern Illinois Huskies football team squeak by a solid Kent State team on Friday, it was an extra bonus to see the Huskies make the first ever BCS bowl game by a non-BCS school....basically breaking the BCS bubble.
As most of the local Chicago Huskies graduates celebrated, it was sad to see many of the ESPN college football analysts rip apart the Huskies, even though they kept saying it wasn't the Huskies fault.
Either way at the end of the day it's a proud moment to be a Huskie alum, even though I don't necessarily follow their sports or news as much as I used to when I attended.
Good for NIU to break into the spotlight once again for a positive and hard earned spot in the Orange Bowl...I'll certainly be watching them prove all of the critics wrong by beating Florida State on New Years Day!
Good luck Huskies, you've already made everyone proud!
