Haha you would think the athletic dept. would remember considering the AD got launched right after the "shocking" loss to NIU!

It's never as bad as it in when the referee refers to us as "Northern Iowa" in our own stadium.

So embarrassing. Terrible media relations. I cringe when I see the no. Illinois

Is the push for NIU vs northern Illinois dead?

I thought Frazier talked about branding us as NIU about 5 yeas ago. That has not happened and he obviously forgot to tell Bill Baker.

Shawnty needs to get on that.

But anyway, they'd still mix up NIU with UNI.

Not true.

If you've noticed on the ESPN broadcasts this year, they show NIU now instead of N. Illinois on the scoreboard which is a huge step in the right direction.

I take it as a compliment that he’s not allowed to transfer to NIU.

RE: Apparently Nebraska doesn’t know we are NIU and not UNI
in a week the list will not matter. New NCAA rule prohibits schools from listing where a transfer may not go. Of course that might still be held true for transferring within a conference. That will all depend on the conferences themselves.

This new redshirt rule has opened up a can of worms.

It’s common practice to not allow transfers to go to future opponents.

Hard to teach an old dog new tricks. Don't think you will see him change that all the time, but he does say NIU from time to time.

I've never seen niu. This last game still showed no. Illinois on scoreboard and referenced by broadcasters
