Damn it!

I would've loved to see the Big Ten lose all their games.

But if ONE team needed to lose, so glad it was Jimbo. 02-13-banana

Why? Aren't you from the Midwest? Figured most of us grew up liking some big ten team.

Nothing against the specific schools. But it always irked me seeing MAC students and alumni wearing their favorite B1G bandwagon gear, even rooting for them vs. their own MAC school. And certainly the obnoxious Walmart Wolverines might be the worst.

Might not be a huge issue in Illinois... NW and UI aren't exactly national powerhouses and don't have that mesmerizing affect on the unaffiliated. But in MI and OH, it is.

I hope NIU’s next guy brings that. I think the program needs a reboot. It just seems like there is no excitement around NIU football these days.

Yeah you figure UCF will take step back. Norvell will leave soon but in meantime they may fall into power vacuum.

I agree I love that P6 marketing campaign. They are definitely best G5 conference. Yes couple of those 4 would be great invites. Maybe all of them.

I also wish Doeren did this. Fleck didn't have his new job yet though, frost and Doeren did.

I read an article recently where Frost said he had a chance to talk with Doeren in early December. Doeren told him not coaching the Huskies in the Orange Bowl was his biggest regret!

^Yeah I heard that on a broadcast too. But he probably regrets because he will never get a chance to coach in ny6 and it could have helped his recruiting.

It's not as bad now, but prior to this run of success, far too many on NIU's campus could be seen wearing ILL-ness gear. Huskie success coupled with all the losing in Sham-bana made a difference, but Northwestern stuff has never been that popular. Ironically, despite the continued slide, you'll always see Bears while Bulls wear has decreased; Blackhawks and Cubs increased thanks to bandwagon jumpers, while Sox stuff is in style with the hard-core fans.

I don't think they root for them vs their team but why can't they root for a team they grew up rooting for. Don't understand the Wal-Mart wolverine reference sorry.

I'm glad UCF won. There was a previous comment about AAC teams being poached to a bigger conference. That's what I hope for. If a couple of their teams are poached it gives us our best shot at getting a bid from the AAC. There has been much debate if we could sustain a move but there's no debating that the talent is better there. Better teams, players, and coaches. Football and basketball. Now many proponents of the MAC will say that we match up better in the MAC and schools are more comparable. After the last couple seasons I'd now have to agree but would still love a chance to switch.

Yea we were in the best position about 3 years ago...before the budget crisis and the Carey era.
