That is what they need to do to bring back Saturday football. :)
I can see ESPN putting on an all day football schedule like they did basketball. NIU will get the 6am slot just like Bball.

Just wait for the MACC and you'll see it's true #TakeBackTheMAC

I guess we will wait and attend the one of the Saturday games instead.

Well, besides homecoming, there's always the mighty battle with Eastern Illinois on 9/9. Two Saturday games - which one to choose? Gosh, Athletics and the MAC are making it so tough for us! Oh well, there's always the hope that next year there will be only one or no Saturday games, so our choice will be much easier.

As a long time Season Ticket Holder, 2 Saturday Home Games is unacceptable.

I'm out & have reallocated my Ticket $$$ to something I can do on Saturday (in DeKalb), golf.

I'm well aware of all of the reasons, but, NIU (& MAC), you've chased me away. The education NIU provided me allows me to work during the week and watch High School Football on Friday nights.

I don't blame you, this will be my first season since graduating that I'm not buying season tickets. I've been buying them even though I haven't lived in Illinois in 8 years. Slowly the MAC presidents and athletic directors will wake up and realize that playing a bunch of weekday games on ESPN3, and if you're lucky ESPNU, isn't worth it. There's no reason a game on ESPN3 can't be played on Saturday.
