I really don't think we take a QB this year
gawd I am sick of hereing Griffens name already
and to draft another Aggie Com on man
I bring Chandler Harnish from nothern Ill and let him sit on the practice squad for a year or so
I think we got bigger needs than a bad QB
Enters his senior season as one of the most prolific offensive players in NIU history, compiling 7,332 career yards of total offense and 53 touchdowns to rank first and third all-time, respectively. He is third at NIU all-time in total plays with 1,070 while his 6.85 yards per play is No. 1 on the career lists. His 5,728 career passing yards and 40 passing touchdowns both rank fourth in NIU history and he is also fourth with 726 pass attempts. His 450 completions rank third at NIU all-time. Has rushed for 1,604 yards in three seasons, to rank 22nd on the NIU career list. Owns five career 100-yard rushing and three-career 300-yard pass days. Has been the Huskies' starting quarterback for 31 of the 33 games he has played over the last three seasons and has an all-time record of 17-14 as a starter.
In the first two games of the season — a 49-26 win over Army and a 45-42 loss to Kansas — Harnish has averaged 339.5 yards of total offense, which ranks him 10th nationally.
With a degree in business management, Harnish is seeking his MBA. His primary strength, according to first-year coach Dave Doeren, is a faith cultivated through a serious knee injury he suffered in 2009.
someone as Smart as R Griffen
Has anybody stopped to consider the absurdity of the numbers Harnish has put up in his first two starts?
146 yards passing
168 yards rushing
314 total yards
208 yards passing
117 yards rushing
325 total yards
He has 639 total yards in two games. He also has a 66% completion percentage, and is averaging 9 YPC.
He leads the team in rushing, is second in the MAC in rushing (only behind Pierce) and is 29th in the country in rushing, and that includes the first game that he didn't play. He also has the 5th most rushing yards of any QB in the country, and again, he didn't play in the first game.
