so very awesome.

too bad chgoland viewers do not get such a daily installment of NIU football coverage like certain other un-named programs in state and SB, Indiana.

That's because, to the media, NIU is a northern Illinois school and NOT a Chicago area school (like U of I and ND are).

UI and ND are in chgo area?

DeKalb is 68 miles from Chgo and only NU is closer.

If you base chg area definition on alums rather than distance to campuses, we must be near the top.

NIU needs to continue efforts to establish a greater media presence in Chgo and overcome the old guard mentality.

With Comcast and SCORE, an opening is being developed. Having Media Day at Harry Carey's in Chgo was a brilliant move years ago. If mainstream media won't come to you, you go to their backyards.

Just win baby and suddenly many Chgo journalists will seek out Kill & Huskies regularly.

Do ya get the feeling that Kill is building on what foundation Novak poured?

The media do not subscribe to the concept of reality. In their world, tOSU is more of a Chicago school than NIU is.

We are the minor leagues. Getting coverage in the Chicago papers is almost akin to the Kane County Cougars trying to get coverage in the land of the Cubs and Sox.

Good analogy. It does NOT have to remain so for eternity. Perhaps the newly hired Sports Marketing firm can develop a winning strategy to bring down that wall, Mr. Media Mogul.

Papa Joe and Jim Phillips had things pointed in the right direction, lets see if we can stay the course.
