Unfortunately even winning at a lower level would not be guaranteed.

And if we start to have a carousel of good players leaving each year, would it really be worse a level lower?

And I hardly think anyone is going to NIU for our superior DI programs (ok, football) any more. If it was 20% of the 2k students at a game I'd be shocked. Doesn't seem to hurt ISU. 05-stirthepot


I completely agree. While I certainly understand fans' desire for NIU to remain DI, times have changed (and none so more than the last 6 months). Finances are drying up and schedules are being washed down the drain. If NIU were forced to drop down to FCS, it would not change my support or financial commitment one bit.

Screw FCS, ISU would kill to bump up to FBS if they had a clear path. The savings from dropping down would be greatly eclipsed by the losses, tangible and otherwise.

They averaged more at home than NIU in 2019

I'm sure all their games were on Saturday and as we've learned in the past, attendance numbers are not always consistent with butts in the seats. NIU reports actual numbers in attendance vs. tickets sold.

I'm not sure what they report. I do know they, like other schools, resell tix on Stubhub.
