Before he suffered his “lower body injury,” Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian was one of the best pure passers in the Big Ten. Then in midseason, his production slipped, and his ankle/foot etc slowed him down. His accuracy and efficiency declined. Siemian made a couple critical mistakes of staring down his primary receiver when near his own South end zone. And that was critical versus close home losses to Minnesota and Ohio State.
Trevor got right versus Illinois, but then again who doesn’t? The Illini Corners were very young and showed zero progress as the season went on. Trevor Siemian put up 4 bills + on one of the worst secondaries in college football, and one statistically, the worst defense in Illini football history.
Still, throwing for 400 yards was a great way for Trevor Siemian to end this season on a positive note, and to be optimistic for this year.Follow paulmbanks
