DeKALB — While NIU coach Thomas Hammock has repeatedly said he's not announcing who's starting at quarterback in the season opener against Illinois State, Redbirds coach Brock Spack said he a good idea.
“We expect to see the transfer (from California, Ross Bowers). That’s the guy we expect to see," Spack said. "I think we expect to see both of them. We’re prepared for both of them. I can see a situational type thing with the other guy, (Marcus) Childers."
In NIU's weekly press conference Tuesday, Hammock indicated he knows who will start Saturday's 6 p.m. season opener at home against Illinois State, but wouldn't show his hand.
