NU labeled a "tease" by Yahoo! Sports

Jason King wrote that NU is "in a funk" after teasing us with its #25 ranking in the AP Poll. The timing of this article is poor. Had it been written after the UTAP game then we would understand why NU was mentioned. Between what we could call a "bad win" against UTAP and the bad loss to MSU (MSU is very good, but NU should not have been blown out at home) it was arguable that NU was in a funk.

Perhaps Jason missed NU's last game in which NU stormed back from a 17 point deficit in Ann Arbor and win? A team that finished its last game at a Big Ten arena on a 54-31 tear is not in a funk.
