I believe this would increase attendance dramatically, pay for itself and open up many new businesses partnerships for NIU and NIU Athletics. It's got to get done now! Also do wonders for recruiting.

RE: NEEDED!
In light of any possible conflict of interest do you or any friend or family member have any connection to this company?

Nope! I just googled cost basketball video boards and it came up. I personally feel a video board like this would do so much for our basketball teams and the university as a whole. Games, attendance, recruiting, concerts, graduation, job fairs, aid in recruiting new students it's endless the potential for new business partners and so many things. I could careless what company it comes from. We are losing out on many great opportunities. The Convo screen is outdated and unviewable. I have always felt that NIU has a basketball size fan base. What I mean by that is we will never have a big football fan base or attendance but with basketball we could be pretty solid. 5 or 6 thousand at the Convo may be more attainable than 25k at Huskie Stadium.

Every single basketball game was a sell out my freshman year. Of course we had a great team in 1971. We had to line up at 6:30 a.m. to ensure we got tickets when the box office opened. Good times.

I believe that a new video cube thing was already in the plan for the Convo a few years ago but I believe money is the issue.

Other than our current screen looking outdated I don't think a new screen is really going to make that much of an impact for anything other than advertising.

A first maybe but no one is going to show up to a second game because of a new screen in the Convo.

No good recruit is going to pick NIU because of a new screen in the convo.

No High School kid is going to pick to go to NIU because the screen might be used for their graduation.

I'm thinking about cancelling my season tickets because of the video screen. So they'd better change that screen.....quickly!

Huskie John, you couldn't be more wrong! Advertising is business partners. Take the video board out of Huskie Stadium and just have a scoreboard without video. It all makes a difference. NIU is not going to do any of the master plan to the football stadium. The Convo needs a better video board and it's up to power 5 conference status.

Concerts, job fairs, trade shows so many things would be better thus making the Convo a more prime venue for events!

I think we should get a scoreboard like Wrigley Field. Guys in the scoreboard change the numbers with every basket scored. For video, we can suspend an old B/W TV from the ceiling. We need to save money, and this would be a great way to do it!
