Blogger Writes about being an NIU fan

Jerry Kill and Tubby Smith each want facilities upgrades

But who gets the money? New AD Norwood Teague is being pressed by both coaches for facility upgrades to their respective programs, but finance limitations means that probably only one will get the funding immediately. Jerry Kill called the football practice facility an "eyesore in recruiting," and Tubby Smith has complained that Minnesota still doesn't have a separate practice facility for basketball. Kill believes that an upgrade to the football facility would cost a cool 3 million. Shouldn't be tough for someone with Teague's resume. Adam Rittenberg believes that Teague's background in basketball makes it more likely that he'll focus on fundraising for Smith's practice facility. It is also possible that Teague, in his first major decision as athletic director, would prioritize football first and meet Kill's needs. Thoughts?

Jerry Kill Recruiting JUCO Running Back James Gillum

Phil Miller reports. Apparently this is a bit of a risk for Kill and co. because Gillum "did not have the grades to enroll at Northern Illinois" when Kill was NIU's coach and was recruiting him four years ago. Miller argues that Kill is likely recruiting Gillum because the Gophers are desperate for some depth at running back, and it's a risk they're willing to take. Gillum's JUCO coach says the recruit's grades are "in order" and is confident that Gillum will be a big impact for Minnesota.
