U.N.I. coach Mark Farley wants the Panthers to remember what got them to this point. U.N.I. overcame a sluggish start to the season and now have sole possession of the Missouri Valley lead with a 3-1 mark heading into this week’s visit to Youngstown State. Farley says the team has to stay hungry and understand how they are positioned and how much football is left to play.
Farley says improved special teams play has been a big factor in their successes. He says the special teams play requires effort and that’s what they have had and that is pleasing to him.
Junior quarterback Terrell Rennie was named the national player of the week after a big game against Illinois State. Farley says Rennie has plenty of help up front. Farley says the offensive line has gotten much better the last two weeks and he says they have gotten better at communicating as the season goes on.
