Before he suffered his “lower body injury” in 2013, Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian was one of the best pure passers in the Big Ten. However, his production slipped in midseason as his ankle/foot etc slowed him down. His accuracy and efficiency declined. In a couple games, Siemian made the critical mistake of staring down his primary receiver when near his own South end zone. Those plays were critical in 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 in 2013. Trevor Siemian put up 4 bills + on one of the worst secondaries in college football.
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.
What happened in week one versus Cal makes everyone less optimistic.Follow paulmbanks
