Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a must buy for yourself or anyone that loves Huskie Football like I do. The book takes you through the humble beginnings in the 1890's, the magical National Championship years in the 60s all the way up through the historic Orange Bowl run.

There are great extra sections in this book as well talking discussing some debate on what the greatest game ever in NIU history and WHO is our rival?? (I was surprised to learn how it changed over the years)

To top it all off... Saint Joe Novak does the foreword in this book and gives his perspective on bringing the program back from the Dead in the 90's doing it his way... The Hard Way.

This book has a publication date of 2013 and thus includes the recent succcess of NIU football. It includes nice photos and in-depth analysis. I bought the book as a Christmas present for my husband, who is a NIU graduate, and was very impressed with the overall quality and value.

I've been an NIU season ticket owner for a number of years and wanted some "behind the scenes" information about the teams over the years. When I attended NIU back in the 70's Mark Keller was big news when he led the nation in rushing. Well, the author told me what Mark was thinking at the time he led the nation and followed up with what he's doing today. The author, Dan Verdun, gave me insight and background I could not have received any place else. I recommend this book to all Huskies football fans. You will not be disappointed.

For NIU football fans, this is a "must have" book. I'm a follower since the days of Bill Mallory and California Bowl. An easy read and nice to see it culminates with the Orange Bowl, albeit a disappointing loss for the Huskies.
