They can just walk thru the Practice Center.

Yes, and "the yard" is being moved indoors for MAC games I believe.

RE: Changes to parking
I'm confused. The students have a farther walk to the southwest side of the stadium AND they sit on the east side of the stadium. Meanwhile those in the west lot being moved to the east lot normally sit on the west side. How does this improve things and not make everyone walk farther? What am I missing?

It's really only 2 games any parking changes will matter. I guess that's one upside of not having home games fans are able to attend

The more accurate question would be what is the athletic administration missing?
Answer: Common sense

Guys, don't worry about it, they are ahead of you on this. Let it play out.

Yeah I guess I see the down side of things when it comes to NIU athletics now. I definitely did not used to be like that. I don't mind if NIU athletics goes into demise because they are outplayed on the fields, what irks me and has made me cynical are the self-inflicted wounds NIU and MAC leadership have committed. It does go to show you how a lack of leadership and bad decisions can destroy a future. There is only so long good coaching and players can bail out a conference.
