Have You Noticed...?

Arguably the best - and inarguably the most underrated - player in college football is from right here at Northern Illinois: Garrett Wolfe. In only five games thus far, he's already rushed for 1,181 ayrds and 11 touchdowns, including a 353-yard, 3-touchdown performance against Ball State last Saturday.

Wolfe averaging 9.3 yards per carry. Think about that. That's almost a first down everytime he takes a handoff. Filthy.

Sadly, the native Chicagoan is receiving hardly any publicity right here in Chitown despite playing for a local team - not to mention a team that has legitimate bowl hopes. So I doubt any serious Heisman consideration will come from around the country. But it'd be nice if maybe, just maybe, Wolfe gets to fly to New York for the ceremony. There isn't a player across the land who is doing nearly the things Wolfe is doing at the moment.
