Memorial for Diesel
I was really sad to hear the news about Diesel. He brought a lot of joy to fans at the stadium and watching on TV. It seems like every game broadcast, both local and national, the crew commented on the beautiful dog named Diesel. He was there for almost all of NIU’s rise to prominence as a mid-major power, and absolutely deserves a spot in the NIU Athletics Hall of Fame. He was the one constant during those years which saw various coaches, athletic directors, and players cycle through the program. He even provided the most shared NIU sports moment in history with his signature high five.

Some have mentioned a statue. I don’t know the feasibility in terms of donors, but I would love to see a statue of Diesel in front of the West side where everyone walks by -- one that is low to the ground in his signature high five pose. Kids would be high-fiving him back and having photo opportunities every Saturday for years.


We will miss you, buddy. I hope you are rollin in the snow somewhere on the other side.
