NU's top dog leaving his mark
(MCT) — Here’s proof that Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald is not satisfied with his team’s 2-0 start. On Monday he mentioned that only one man on either side is playing “at a championship level,” and that’s tailback/returner Venric Mark. Then Fitzgerald repeated it, just to be clear.
Mark ranks fourth in the Big Ten in rushing yards per game (102.5), trailing quarterbacks Braxton Miller and Denard Robinson and Michigan State tailback Le’Veon Bell. Mark is at 5.4 yards per carry; Bell at 4.5.
And Mark is averaging a rather hefty 67.0 yards per punt return. His only two came at Syracuse.
