    NIU is NOT a cupcake.

    Division I-A Bowl Games
    Year... Bowl Game... Result... Opponent... Score


    2009 International Bowl (L) South Florida Bulls 3-27
    2008 Independence Bowl (L) Louisiana Tech 10-17
    2006 Poinsettia Bowl (L) Texas Christian 7-37
    2004 Silicon Valley Classic (W) Troy State 34-21

    At least they go to Bowl games.
    Eastern Illinois has never played in a major bowl game.

    Arnaud completed 27-36 for 265 yrds against NIU
    Stanzi completed 18-23 for 229 yrds against E. Ill.
    which is more impressive?

    Depends on what colored glasses you are wearing.

    Re: NIU is NOT a cupcake.

    FBS - bowls

    FCS - playoffs

    Not many are saying NIU was a cupcake. But let's be honest and say that 90 of BCS conference teams would have been favorites by double digits. Although progress is being made as we once would have lost this game and now using the W to support our slightly kookaid inflated view of our team.

    Re: NIU is NOT a cupcake.

    Eastern Illinois is a FCS (aka I-AA) team and is by far the smallest of the four "directional" schools in Illinois. Northen Illinois is FBS (aka I-A) and is by far the largest of Illinois' "directional" schools. Did hawk fans forget they played NIU in there big game at Soldier Field a few years ago??

    I remember after the Soldier Field game an friend and hawk fan said, "Maybe some day the clowns can play in an NFL stadium." To which I replied, "You mean like when we played Florida State a couple of years ago at Arrowhead?" It is sad when I not only have to educate "fans: about my team, but their own team of choice...

    I think Stanzi ONLY throwing for just over 220 yds. against that defense is ridiculous!
    I think AA ONLY throwing for just over 260 yds. against NIU is pretty conservative!

    Re: NIU is NOT a cupcake.

    NIU was a cupcake. They're a middle-of-the-pack MAC team. They were scheduled because it's a game we were expected to handle.

    That being said, EIU was a bigger cupcake for Iowa, so ultimately we're arguing who's less of a cupcake.

    Since when does a middle-of-the-pack team get almost unanimously picked to win its division and possibly its conference?

    Anyone who thinks NIU is a cupcake doesn't know college football.
