Re: Suck it Herbstreit! 


I didn't watch it, but saw people commenting on it on the boards.  Don't let the negativity suck you in.   Just be proud of your Huskies and their accomplishments on this great season and don't worry about what someone who hasn't spent five minutes following your program thinks of your team.  I remember a couple years ago everyone kept saying my team (Kansas) didn't belong either and they went out and proved them wrong by winning the Orange Bowl.  Your school has a golden opportunity so hopefully they will make the most of it.  I'll be rooting for your Huskies!

I love it ... Herby - take your blanky and go home, you big baby. So the Sooners can't throw another stack on the pile ... I'm sure they'll be OK.

I don't like Florida St. as much as the next person but I'm sorry this bowl game is gonna be a waste of time. Herbstreit is right...there are much better teams that are more deserving of a BCS bowl game. I mean seriously...the schedule N. Illinois played is just about a notch higher than playing a FCS schedule. The game won't be sold out and won't even be watched on television. I mean ill watch it only because I know by halftime Florida St. will already have won. At least you guys might have a chance for points when you play the second and third stringers in the second half.

Re: Suck it Herbstreit! 


I guess you missed one of the best college football games OF ALL TIME when Boise State beat Oklahoma?
Your comments suggest that your time is certainly worth wasting since you failed to mention a few BCS Automatic qualifiers that definitely shouldn't be playing in a BCS game this year.
Louisville? Wisconsin? Why are they playing? Oh....yeah........those were the RULES........just like the rule that allows the Huskies to play.
Any team in the top 25 has a fighting chance to beat anyone they play......no matter how storied their opponent might be. I'll watch this game and root like hell for Northern Illinois just like I rooted like hell for Boise St. to beat Oklahoma.
If you don't think this game scares Jimbo Fisher and FSU then you are sadly mistaken. FSU has more to lose than it has to win in this game. NIU has nothing to lose and everything to gain. This might be the most entertaining BCS game this year because NIU will throw plays at the Sems that they have only seen in video games. I am sending my wife shopping that evening so that I can pee in a trash can by my TV so I don't miss a single play..............

N. Illinois isn't Boise St. or Wisconsin...and no they aren't better cause theyre ranked higher. If Boise St. or Wisconsin...or any team in the top 20 for that matter had N. Illinois' schedule we'd have 20 undefeated teams right now. N. Illinois' opponents included 8 teams with losing records (three of them were 4-8, one was 2-10, another was 2-9, and three were 1-11). Their combined record was 62-93. The only ranked team they played was Kent St. who probably didn't deserve to be in there because they also played nobody with their only significant win against a now unranked Rutgers team. I doubt any team N. Illinois played was even ranked in the top 50. Look at the teams Oklahoma played...the teams Georgia, South Carolina, LSU played...even Nebraska played better teams. But I guess the rules are the rules. N. Illinois should enjoy this moment cause once playoffs begin theyre never gonna smell the BCS again. (Unless they get into a better conference and schedule some real opponents)

Re: Suck it Herbstreit! 


Nw other folks are seeing firsthand why so many of us Buckeyes have jettisoned Herbstreit as one of our beloved own. The dude has some serious issues with his bully pulpit at ESPN.

He is pissed because he didn't drive this story. The system drove it. ESPN was caught fat footed here.

Good luck. So many will be pulling for you....especially the Buckeye Nation.

Re: Suck it Herbstreit! 


I am not sure why NIU fans keep stating the "rules" since nobody is even remotely saying that NIU got in illegally. Everyone knows that NIU got in through the "rules" but they are simply stating how utterly terrible it is for the BCS in general to have to accept a school with as small a fan base, an unknown team, etc....

Fans can point to the Boise/OU game but I will point to virtually every other BCS game where an unknown team played (and most likely lost) and the TV ratings were atrocious. There is a reason that teams like NIU are picked dead last in the BCS selection process.

Even if NIU wins, I am not sure it matters at all b/c it likely sets another BCS TV record for fewest TV viewers.

don't let the naysayers get you down.  You deserve to go.  Who cares about Herbie and ESPN. From one Husky to another go get'um. Congrats and good luck.

Dawg.......can you send me the link to the projected TV ratings for all college football games so that I can use those numbers to best judge what teams I, as a college football fan, should watch? It had never dawned on me that I should be watching what ESPN tells me to watch.
Or.........I could simply say that anyone who watches a game because "The TV said so" is a moron.
Other than the BCS title game, this NIU/FSU game is the one I am most looking forward to watching. If that Huskie offense starts on a roll......this game could be last year's West Virginia over Clemson BLOWOUT bowl game. Is it probable? No. Is it possible? Of course and that's why lots of college football fans will be watching. Will anyone besides an FSU fan be rooting for FSU? NOPE! NIU is AMERICA'S TEAM for that game and it is simply Un-American to not watch America's team play on TV.
That's right.......I said it.......only Communists and euro-soccer fans won't be watching. You a Man U fan or a Marxist?

Re: Suck it Herbstreit! 


And for the Round Mound Of Klown whose point was that this game wouldn't sell out; none of these BCS games really "sell out" if that term means that all the seats have an ass occupying them.
Sure....Bama/ND will have blue/gold corduroy and crimson polyester planted in every seat but that is certainly the exception. The National Championship games sell out but hand-fulls of tickets are written off by scalpers and those seats are empty.......like the 16 seats behind us last year at the BCS Nc game. Hell, we had enough room for 3 guys to have their own 6-seat row.
I have traveled to 13 different BCS games over the past 5 years. I am a West Virginia and a Cincinnati fan (long story) and my two best friends are LSU and Alabama fans respectively (you should see those two SOB's go at each other). All three of us are blessed with understanding wives and our weekends are spent going to college football games.
The year LSu played OSU in New Orleans is a good example; the Sugar Bowl with Hawaii wasn't a sell out and the NC game wasn't either.......a few thousand tickets were made available at the Superdome. I know this because I bought early before WVU lost to Pitt and ruined their NC shot. I sold 4 great seats for 3 grand on Tuesday before the game. We walked to the Superdome on the day of the game and bought 4 seats for 275.00 each from the SD box office.
Look............you all know you are going to watch NIU play Florida State on TV. Why not leave the Dark Side and cheer for the underdog. If they get their ass kicked......fine. If they win.......awesome. NIU is playing by the rules set up for/by ESPN to make the most money. Had that rule not been made, the BCS would have been sued for an antitrust violation. For you socially minded individuals......a bowl system that doesn't allow everyone an opportunity at greatness is elitist and myopic.
This is all you need to know; Boise St wasn't Boise St until Boise St beat OU and became Boise St by first starting as Boise St. Call it the Boise to Boise rule.........when little Boise beats a Big Boy school, they becomes a Big Boise school too..........

Good luck against the Noles. I think the remarks by the Orange Bowl Rep were reprehensible, and I hope you make them pay.

The only time I will say...Go Huskies.

God Bless America...even Seattle

Well Kirk and the OB reps were right

NIU had no business in this game, they are lucky EJ blows or else this game would have been a joke

Could you imagine if FSU had Brandon Jenkins, Tank Carradine and Chris Thompson ? my god, FSU might have won by 70 points

um... none of those play offense, and the D held NIU to 10 pts. What more do you want?  The low score by FSU was due to Fisher wearing too many hats, and none of them well. Let's not pat ourselves on the back-- Kent State scored 37 points on NIU.
