I guess the people down in Texas never watched our men's bb games on ESPN3. If they did, maybe they saw how our home fan base may have grown from 600 to 750.

That's mostly thanks to me. I have gained more weight over the years, and my arse now takes up 3.5 seats. I can practically fill a row myself. So, thanks to me, the place looks a little fuller. Plus, the folks on ESPN3 usually see me chomping down a foot-long monster weenie that bloats me and makes me look even bigger. I make sure not to go to the bathroom until after the game when we are off camera. See how I sacrifice to make the attendance look bigger? I may need to put this on my resume because I think I have done more to increase attendance than Morris did!

Totally agree, the position is for all purposes vacated right now. He has checked out. The longer a position is filled by someone in name only, the worse the situation will get. As they say, someone is just "collecting a paycheck" right now. I honestly think he answers to nobody

What gets me most is the lack of needed repairs to Huskie Stadium. Forget about the "Master Plan". I realize that fundraising has failed and that there is no money to even talk about it. But there are facility repairs/upgrades that have been needed for a long time in Huskie Stadium. The bathrooms are disgusting and a complete embarrassment. The urinal troughs from 1965 need to go and be replaced. There needs to be adequate facilities. I sometimes used the bathroom in the Skybox, and I could barely fit in there. I am embarrassed to bring guests and tell them that they should use a bathroom before we get to the stadium. Concessions could use a makeover, too. These are not major renovations.

True, and I don't think the fans watching our Tuesday night games from home on TV generally translate into big donors that could donate toward even just the maintenance, never mind upgrades.
No upgrades for a team that draws less than 15k. Add the budget crisis and it would be shocking if any improvements are made.

Yea but the comments were that we supposedly had the donor support for upgrades. What happened to that?

If NIU could just get that one big home basketball game.... When you combine that with the upward trajectory in talent, I think NIU bball would take off. Just so hard to land that big home game now.

Yes, supposedly some money came in. If not, they should scrap the "Master Plan" (if it hasn't already been) and start a donation campaign only for repairs/upgrades. The fundraising does not need to be major, but it does need to be aggressive. Making a request for donations on a website does not do it.

As I mentioned, the bathroom situation is deplorable. If they can't do simple upgrades like ripping out the piss troughs and putting in urinals and adding more and better concessions areas, then they should simply get out of the business. It's not only an embarrassment for our fans but also for fans from the high schools that play in Huskie Stadium.

Yea, also the sinks in the bathroom shut off as soon as you let go of the knob, it's impossible to really wash your hands. Who was the idiot that came up with that?
