The Northern Illinois community did not take too kindly to ESPN’s bashing of its 2012 resume and subsequent Orange Bowl berth. And Huskies fans are not being shy about it.
One day after Kirk Herbstreit’s anti-NIU diatribe during the BCS Selection Show, the Marathon gas station on Lincoln Highway in Dekalb — just on the edge of NIU’s campus — had a message for the Worldwide Leader: “Suck Our Oranges ESPN. Go Huskies!”
An appropriate rebuttal from the home of Northern Illinois. ESPN and other outlets can pile on them all they want in projecting their disdain for the BCS. But that won’t change the fact that the Huskies are headed to Miami.
