He got extended and promoted, tough scene for some of you lunatics

That's my cue.... This is ridiculous, smaller schools have told better AD's to take a hike at the end of the contractual run. Sean Frazier sucks, why are we keeping him around??? What was that wack-job Freeman thinking? Get someone with a set of balls who actually gives a crap about NIU....

STF has done NOTHING to deserve any contract extension. Why do that????? I have said he is "horrible." ok, that may be an over statement made in frustration. But at best he is ok. Does ok warrant an early extension WITH A PROMOTION???? NO! My answer is NO! Emphatically!

What the hell has he done to warrant that?????????????

Now I am getting over the gut punch and just getting mad!

Why the hell should I care? They (the powers that be) obviously don't!

He has a good and loving relationship with his mega donors (and no one else). That's all that counts. Maybe one of those donors supported his contract extension.

RE: FIRE SEAN T. FRAZIER
Frazier is not beholden to anyone except for the NIU president and honestly the new president seems like someone we picked because we had a previous scandalous president and we simply needed to pick someone who didn't have any sort of skeletons. If we had done an actual search for a new president we likely would have found better candidates for the position.

So since she is simply a manager and we don't have rich alumni demanding Frazier resign he will just keep getting extensions.

RE: FIRE SEAN T. FRAZIER
Amazing. 3 days after having to announce game day improvements. What is there - 6 home games? Did the opening day sneak up on them ? Not splitting the atom here. We already can’t get people interested in the program so you don’t have to provide an experience to THAT many people. Provide popcorn, drinks and dogs to what amounts to a large HS crowd and failed.

Staffing shortage ? Give me a break, not hiring people for a full time job. Call the dekalb football team, have them work concessions and give them an all access something or other before/after whatever make a donation to the program - who knows figure it out.

How can a div 1 program be so incompetent and then reward that incompetence?

That’s NIU! New motto: “We reward incompetence!!”

Did anyone find out what the pay bump might be? Northern Star foia? Also, they gave him management of the rec department last year or year before, so that means he's over that group of staff, facilities, budget and revenue.

He rides in his golf cart so he doesn’t have to walk through the lot with more normal big donors. He is an exclusively mega donor guy.

I think NIU is going with stability in the program. May not be what everyone likes but there is something to build on.

We talk about how understaffing and issues with athletic department that should be improved (like marketing, concessions, gameday experiences, lack of interactions with donors, less student involvement, etc.), does anyone think it gets better if he's also now in charge of a 2nd department? Only takes his focus away from athletics.

Does this mean STF will be coming out with a new Strategic Plan that will never be completed? His continual failures to accomplish anything meaningful should be grounds for dismissal not an additional 5 years.

According to the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) posted on NIU’s website, Frazier’s base salary will rise to $334,317 effective July 1, 2021.

I'm definitely not a big donor and have met and talked with STF. He always acknowledges Mrs. HFF and I and will stop and chat with us. While this may not be everyones experience it is my experience.

When STF came here, he brought Schedule Palooza. And the response? Poor attendance. What can he do with no dollars and fans that don't respond? Again, this does not apply to everyone, but it applies to way to many NIU fans.

True. What's he supposed to do with nothing? Our fan base just doesn't care much about Huskie Football. Or maybe we do, and there isn't much of a fan base.

Also, why trek it to DeKalb for overpriced tickets and crappy amenities, when you can watch the game from the convenience of your home in Ultra High Def TV...with unlimited Hot Dogs if you're at Dogfan's house.

Schedule palooza, Alcohol, the yard, new video board at convo these are Frazier things and they were are good things. NIU fan base has more people in it that will watch and cheer for NIU on tv then will come to games. Diversity is a strength of NIU and America. Many great White Heterosexual Males but many others outside that group also great!

Wait, what? I've been missing out.

The crappy concessions have been a thing for a while. The yard, while nice, didn't take the place of all the old tents that would be set up on homecoming, and they made the east tailgating lot lame by making it partly donor, and squeezed out what used to be a party atmosphere for the kids and made them come out. Not all went to the game but some did and they're the loudest of the fans usually. And the East lot was the first thing students saw when they approached Huskie stadium. Lame atmosphere = fewer students = fewer alumni attending games after graduation = fewer donors. Also, the schedule sucked for 10+ years. Not STF's fault, but it's a fact. And the MAC still sells out to E$PN so yea, they don't care about attendance, atmosphere, etc.

That's all you got after being here so long. His policies drove fans away, then you blame the fans for not showing up. The quest for diversity for the sake of diversity gets you mediocracy not excellence. You should hire the best person regardless of any gender or skin color attributes. Don't discriminate, but don't settle either. I am pretty much done with Freeman at this point.

New golf cart and three brand new odd-colored suits. Look for him in a peach colored suit against Maine and a purple suit against EMU.

RE: FIRE SEAN T. FRAZIER
I'm not sure I get the complaints about ticket prices. 33 bucks a seat (for the most expensive seat in the place) doesn't seem all that out of line for FBS football. I just checked the Illinois site and next weekend they play home against Charlotte and 35 bucks gets you seats at the top of the stadium. Anything lower and its 50 bucks and up (although you can sit behind one of the endzones for 20 bucks).

I'm not sure how much lower people think they should go for FBS football tickets.

As for basketball (men's) they're pretty damn cheap. A few years ago I was living in Minneapolis and was delighted to see the Huskies had a game scheduled with Minnesota. I searched for tickets for months (basically up until the week of the game) and couldn't come up with anything under 50 bucks. For a game between NIU and Minnesota where we all knew the outcome before they ever took the court.

Needless to say, I chose to watch from home. But I could have gone to 3 or 4 games in the Convo for what it would have cost me to see them play the Gophers.

So yeah, maybe football tickets are a tad high considering the attendance but I just don't see them lowering prices enough to drive up the bodies coming to the games. In other words, I don't see a 30 dollar ticket as being the deterrent.

Nobody ever fully likes their AD, but let’s not act like other big schools with more resources aren’t interested in him.
