This thread is for all things home opener. Game time, opponent, tailgating etc.

Let's start with helping STF decide what time the game should start.

Definitely should be a night game, just like the game vs EIU where Lynch and Garoppolo dueled.

NIU home opener night games traditionally have started at 6:30. Let's keep that.

I want every sunny Saturday afternoon game I can get. Plus, there’s something magical about drinking before noon. So very fall football.

Comparing this ISU team to that EIU team is an insult to Garoppolo

What a game that was. Best two QBs to play in one game ever at NIU.

Except for the fact that it's the opener, I am not excited about this game. Somehow, playing high school teams just does not build my excitement level.

Well, we have Rhode Island next year at home and the Maine Black Bears the following year. EIU in the future too.

I sure hope the excitement level can tone itself down a bit before we get to our great MAC home schedule. I can already feel the excitement building for October when we face Ball State and Akron.

Not sure what is more exciting, the home opener against the Blue Hose or this one
