UC-Davis @ NIU
Narrow loss to old MCC rival Green Bay hasn’t deterred the excitement over this year’s team. Apparently the AD is expecting a big crowd tomorrow as my friend in Peoria sent me this link of their local newspaper’s board of an NIU ticket rep pushing a special sale ($5/ticket for 15+). Good year for our ticket office to market regionally and even statewide. Kudos!

I've been seeing a lot of ads on Instagram the past couple of weeks specifically marketing this one game. Thought that was pretty interesting...

I’ve decided to make the hour drive for a 7pm start. Looking forward to it and honoring the football team at half time.

RE: UC-Davis @ NIU
There’s a lot of people in Peoria who think former player Jim Les was unfairly pushed out at Bradley and follow what he’s built at UC Davis. That said I doubt that many will be traveling up I 39.

Went to Grammar School and High School with UC Davis Head Coach. He would have been a great get when Bradley got rid of him.

"net" rankings: NIU 155 UCD 273
KenPom : NIU 151 UCD 239

Huskies NEED this one to have a good feeling going into Butler. Would be nice to win by 10. On ESPN3 so it is free.

GO HUSKIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didn't see this but UWBG knocked off undefeated Belmont on Saturday. Maybe that wasn't a bad loss at all for NIU

What a lethargic game. UC Davis is wearing down NIU with all these switches. UC Davis is really getting after it. Much more energy than NIU

I was at the game tonight. The team had some trouble getting an offensive flow going but still won which is nice. The halftime ceremony honoring the football team was brief but very cool. They showed highlights on the scoreboard which is awesome. What an incredible improvement.

I thought we shot better as a team than we have the last couple years. Finally getting the 3s to drop. I didn’t know anything about Daow but he looked good tonight. New scoreboard is such a big improvement over the old one.

RE: UC-Davis @ NIU
Crowd was pathetic. Atendance was 910. All lower bowl. The new scoreboard is very very nice. The DJ music is pathetic. At least play some old school stuff and not the gangster music....Play old school R/B like Commodores, Michael Jackson, Earth Wind Fire, Kool and the Gang....That would appeal to all ages...and it is mostly people over 30 anyways...No NIU band for some reason. Has the band been at other games?

RE: UC-Davis @ NIU
No band or pep band. Seven silverettes and no cheerleaders. The football team left after signing some autographs at halftime, that’s ridiculous! The NIU men’s and women’s basketball team attends so many other teams games. Very disappointed in the support for the basketball team. The music by the dj was fine. The reason our fan base and budget is so low is our fan base is old. We do not have any fan presence of late 20’s to 40 year olds. NIU cannot continue catering things to us old folks( Iam 53). Our fan base is slowly passing away and there is no young blood to replace them. Montgomery is constantly telling and forcing his players to attend other NIU athletic events which they willing attend. We cannot control how many fans attend games but certainly NIU Athletics can support them!

RE: UC-Davis @ NIU
Playing a rap song that had referring to a lady and saying "one man's garbage is another mans pleasure" is acceptable?

I beg to differ and would love to take a survey of the 910 fans on their view of the music and I am pretty sure most say it is lousy...

I am a music lover and
here are tunes which I think would be acceptable to all at an NIU game ....

Superstition - Stevie Wonder
PYT- Michael Jackson (he did play 15 seconds of this)
Celebrate - Kool and Gang
Love Train- Ojays
Mony Mony - Tommy James or Billy Idol
Dancing Machine - Jackson 5
I Want You Back and /or ABC - Jackson 5 -- (They used to play this)
Walk This Way- Aerosmith and or Run/DMC
Rappers Delight - Sugar hill gang
Sweet Caroline - (of course)
Rock n Roll Part 2- Gary Glitter
Start Me Up -Rolling Stones
Eye of the Tiger - Survivor

You get my drift.....

I’ve been to several Bigten sporting events and professional events this year and previous years and NIU plays the same music as they do. I’m sure the students were just fine with it actually the people around me were wondering why so many country songs.
