    Chicago Invitational in 2009

    Just got an email from JP that we will be playing in the Chicago Invitational in 2009. Notre Dame, Northwestern and St. Louis will also be in the tourney. I am looking forward to the Cyclones coming to Chicago.

    This is the best news I've heard all summer. I can't wait.

    Hopefully there's television for this tournament. Seems like everytime we play in one of these there's rarely TV or it's some webcast. I would love to see us play NW.

    Most likely the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, that's where it has been. Closer than Ames, but just barely.

    Re: Chicago Invitational in 2009

    McDermott mentioned this on today's interview with Deace and Miller. I didn't remember a thread about it so out of curiosity I googled it and naturally an old CF link came up.

    Looks like the past years of the event have been on the final Friday and Saturday of November with a game each night. Not really a tournament since our opponents will be predetermined.

    UNI was a participant in 2008. HERE is a quick view of the setup.

    From that info we should be playing two of Notre Dame, Northwestern and St. Louis. We should also be hosting two of the lesser participants at Hilton before going to Chicago.

    Sounds like a road trip to me!

    Great link! Thanks for the research on that.

    This place is not far from my brother's place in Schaumburg. Hmmmmm, this looks better and better.

    The arena website doesn't have anything listed yet for November:
    Deprecated Browser Error

    They don't really do a whole lot of work on that calendar, from what I can see.

    Has anyone checked to see if Chicago is ready for the Cyclone Nation to blow through there?

    Re: Chicago Invitational in 2009

    I'm guessing the exact match-ups and times are in the works so maybe we will hear something in the coming weeks. I noticed somewhere while looking that match-ups were released last June for the '08 one.

    I bet we give Northwestern and Notre Dame a major push for highest attendance there and that would be saying something given distance from campus.
