  Hunter Johnson doesn't want to be afraid to make mistakes anymore. After having a 2019 season to forget at Northwestern, the quarterback said he isn't worried about all of the game-ending injuries, the losses and the interceptions that defined his sophomore campaign. "There's good years and bad years," Johnson said. "I'm just moving on, everything about it. There's obviously some things I'm going to take from it, but you can't move forward looking back. I'm not looking back." New offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian is helping Johnson turn the page. After the highly-touted transfer from Clemson finished last season with just one touchdown and four interceptions in six games, Bajakian had a simple message for Johnson when he was hired to coach the Wildcats. Bajakian wants Johnson to be more decisive, even if he's wrong. "If I think I know the answer, (Bajakian) wants me to yell it out," Johnson said. "Be confident, and if you're wrong, then he'll let you know. But he'd rather us go for it and be wrong than just go through the motions."

Coach Pat Fitzgerald admitted he needs to do a better job helping Johnson be more confident during the season. Johnson felt pressure all last year as the assumed replacement to Clayton Thorson, the winningest quarterback in NU history. The Indiana native left all three of his final games of the 2019 season with an injury. His sophomore season ended with a 10-yard sack against No. 10 Minnesota in November, and Johnson finished the year with a 46.3 completion percentage. "What comes with that locomotive is the hype," Fitzgerald said. "It's unrealistic to expect a lot right away because it's new relationships, a new offense, new school. It's a lot of stuff that goes on." Heading into his third year with the program, Johnson knows he needs to play better to claim the starting spot in September. - The Daily Northwestern
