We aren’t the only major CFB program to suffer an embarassing loss to NIU. In 2003, the 21st ranked Crimison Tide were beat by NIU. History always repeats itself folks. In order for a tier one CFB program to return to prominence, they must suffer a devastating defeat at the hands of NIU. We should thank Nice Guy Mike for the parting gift. Ladies and Gentleman, there’s hope at the end of tunnel. Furthermore, your head coach must be named Mike. (UA Head Coach - Mike Shula) Also, your team must only win 4 games. (UA 2003 record - 4-9) . This is crazy but looks like we’ll be hoisting some trophies in the next decade.
