Kickoff Classic Tripleheader

Quote:Northern Illinois athletic director Sean Frazier has reached out to organizers of the annual Chicago High School Kickoff Classic with hopes of bringing the football tripleheader to Huskie Stadium in DeKalb, the Tribune has learned.

An agreement could come as early as Friday at a meeting between NIU officials and representatives of the event, sources said.

. . .

Lockport versus Providence, St. Laurence versus Benet and Mount Carmel versus Hope Academy.

Any time we can get high school players and their parents into Huskie Stadium it's a good thing. I hope Sean is able to close the deal on this.

I noticed Mt. Carmel (with you know who as their coach) would be one of the teams slated to appear. I believe it would be 6 teams in all so not a bad advertisement for us.

The experience of hosting the IHSA playoffs (4 games a day) helps quite a bit.

And it’ll be played in perfectly August weather, as opposed to the usually frigid state final games.

Yes!!!! Great opportunity to showcase NIU to guests and potential students/athletes and families to Dekalb. Good revenue opportunity as well. Go Huskies! Glad we got it over Toyota Park.....

This helps show people that Dekalb is not as far as they think it is.

This is absolutely fabulous news. STF deserves a raise, contract extension, and a Nobel prize for this. Well, maybe we should hold off on the Nobel prize until next March after NIU gets into a NY6 bowl and the basketball team gets to the Big Dance!

Madawg will be back the moment Childers completes one deep ball. As the lone Childers supporter last year, MD's patiently waiting for that one "I told you so" moment for #15 in the 2018 season.

I would love to have maddawg back on this board too. It’s been too long. He’s a real fan even if we might not agree with him all the time

MD and Nigel are both insane, but its nice to see some whacky viewpoints. They should both be allowed back.

Why would we want to go back to having every thread highjacked? I, for one, disagree.

An excellent get by the NIU admin.
Don’t underestimate Uremovich (along with Jordan) connections with Catholic league getting this to NIU.

Bad look for the Bears to have this being played basically in George McCasky’s backyard.

This should be an awesome day of football. Major coup.
