NIU got in on a technicallity. They do not really deserve to be there. The Orange Bowl was forced to take them. It's bad for the Orange Bowl and college football. This should have been a showcase game. It is not.

Or Chris, if you prefer.
Truth hurts, I guess. Seems like the Orange Bowl is doing whatever it takes to drum up interest.
Ahh yes... we're back to defending the "sanctity" of the Orange Bowl game.
“We have 45 men suited up. They're all supposed to be ready to play.”
We learned about honesty and integrity - that the truth matters... that you don't take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules... and success doesn't count unless you earn it fair and square.
-- Michelle Obama
I hope NIU whoops some 'Noles butt.
