Honestly if we make it next year I will find a way to go. I just can't now because I just moved into my new house without selling my old house and there are a ton of expenses...on top of that I have 3 little ones to feed and all that.

Two mortgages and three kids?
Wait until AFTER the Orange Bowl to jump off a cliff.
It gets better, just start using birth control! With all the time you spend on here, how do you find time to make babies?

I have two kids aged 4 and 1. They go to all the games and I originally was going to bring them down and then do Disney afterwards. After thinking about the mood we'd all be in after driving down there cooler heads prevailed. My parents are watching the kids and I paid the huge airfare costs. Can't wait as this feels like the culmination of something that started 14 years ago.

Only 14 years? I've been watching Huskie games for 40 years.
Your parents must be SAINTS! How much are you paying them to take the kids off your hands?

The real point here is that we, as a school, are doing ok. The hard core fans need to dig deep and push the game. To themselves, their friends and anyone else willing to listen.

Technically I have three mortgages. We bought the first house during the bubble times...03-banghead

No...no more kids...wife doesn't have the oven any more...almost died after giving birth. We set out to have 3 before we were 30 then be done with having kids. We made it so we are good where we are now.

If that's true, I was hoping for a little more push by the end of this week with the loyalty points deadline, but it isn't terrible.

I think we'll get close to 10k somehow.

RE: Ticket Update
Our representation at the Orange Bowl will be the largest we have even had at a bowl. We'll be fine. BUT, I really stress that all this enthusiasm will fade after the game, regardless of the outcome, but especially if we get spanked. People who visit this board and of the others who have been aroused by this fantastic exposure, MUST commit themselves to carry it over to next year. The cost of a season ticket is less than $100. Buy one or more. Get friends to buy them. Failing to buy season tickets now, buy at least a game or two. We need to fill Huskie Stadium. We at least need to show a sizable improvement in home attendance. The west stands should be close to full. Next year we will have the Chessick Center and a new scoreboard capping the two endzones. Now we need attendance to rise to support other stadium improvements. That and the HS championships being in DeKalb will make next year's recruiting much more favorable. The Orange Bowl is a very expensive contribution and any support is welcome. The proof will be in how the NIU family shows next fall.

I plan on picking up my first season tickets next season.

I've never had season tix because I have a different size group at the game each week. I have decided to buy at least 4 season tickets for next year though, so I guess I will now be a member of that club!

Good to know the February thing. Honestly I've been holding off because I'm sure the ticket office is getting killed with Orange Bowl stuff. Figured I would wait until all of the craziness subsides before contacting them.

RE: Ticket Update
This is where the marketing department needs to be more aggressive. They should be selling 2013 season ticket packages simultaneously with OB tickets. Same with the Alumni Association, they should be more diligent in selling memberships during this time. NIU could see season ticket packages for Christmas this year and they would be well received.
