Peters-John-2008-002.jpgSince the news has broke about college football's new four-team playoff format, there have been a surplus of reactions, especially involving NIU and the Mid-American Conference since NIU President Dr. John Peters was part of a committee of university presidents that approved the BCS commissioners' plan for a four-team playoff to start in the 2014 season.

None of them want to be sitting. They fight to stay on the floor."

Competitiveness will not be a problem for the 2011-12 Huskies.  Click here to read Sahly's article and find out more about what the Huskies are bringing to the table this year.
