I’m sure the double negative was confusing lol. I was trying to say 11-7 has always meant you get a bye.

You are correct any way you word it. The current format started with the 2015-16 MACT.

Huskies need to win 6 of the remaining 10 to get there.

Now if that doesn't fill up the stands Saturday nothing will!

Except hardly anyone is aware.

I keep asking this ...where is the promotion? Is the "official" website all Northern has? Is there nobody getting the word out? What was the response to "study night" like?

Or is this more of that big-donor-focus garbage. I say again ... 1,000 people donating $1,000 each produces the same revenue as 100 donating $10,000 each ... except the 1,000 will put 900 more in the seats. Why is that so hard to understand for our illustrious ... Never mind.

RE: MBB Bobcats @ Huskies
Been trying to buy an extra ticket next to my season seats for Saturday’s game all day and never answered or returned my call. When I finally got ahold of somebody they said I’d have to call back another day because the people who handle the ticket sales are spending the whole day in a meeting preparing for the Harlem globetrotters game. I swear sometimes this school is the BIGGEST F*cking joke ever

WOW! That is sad. I have been a defender of STF because of the budget problems but somebody needs to fired or demoted. Maybe you should email the president.

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

p.s. Is the meeting at Fatty's?

I'd almost bet that there will be an agreement between the refs and the teams that when it happens, they'll call an official's timeout to let NIU recognize it.

Also of note, the current format of the conference is dumb.

I have no problem eliminating divisions if, you know, it’s reflected on the schedule lol

RE: MBB Bobcats @ Huskies
Anybody know why we’ve only had cheerleaders attend one men’s game? Also it’s so embarrassing when there’s like only four silverettes at the games. Does anyone know why we got rid of that great montage to start the basketball games? The one with Kenny Battles 360 dunk. They played the music but no video. That video is one of the only traditional things we have and it was awesome please bring it back.

The divisions have zero effect on seeding, meaning they’ve pretty much much eliminated them but the scheduling currently doesn’t reflect that as they play all division teams twice

If you are going to have divisions, I really liked the old format of the top seed getting no worse than a 2 seed. It is good for divisional races, good for rivalries. It was a complete overreaction to the dominance of the East.

RE: MBB Bobcats @ Huskies
I do worry this could be one of those rare years where an 11 win team has to be a 5 seed. It will be close though. The thing I like about the Huskies right now, they may not lose that tiebreaker if they were an 11 win team and you had multiple teams in a tiebreaker scenario. Going 1-0 against UB, 1-0 against Kent might end up being huge. That is why I think that Kent game is so big, you go 3-0 vs the Kent/UB combo, that could really work out nice for possible tiebreaks. I just get the sense NIUs game vs Kent at home will go a long way in telling us if NIU is a serious threat in this conference this year

A Huskie win Saturday and it will take a major collapse for them not to finish as the 8 th seed or higher.

I’d agree with this. If you have divisions the winners get 1-2

Seems to me it is a big deal, but apparently that is just me. Me and that guy down on the band end of floor with the dry erase board marking off the final points Gino needs to become the ALL-TIME NIU point scorer in the long history of NIU basketball! Wow!

Study Night sounds like the dumbest promotion in history. I personally went to games as a student just to take my mind off things for 2 hours and mentally take a break

I am sure that promotion was brought to us by the Northern Star
