Mini_n_2_medium One of NIU's favorite punching bags (48-14 W in 2006, 48-3 W in 2008), Indiana State, don't want to play the Huskies anymore in the near futuree according to head Sycamore coach Trent Miles:

"Rather than play two MAC schools, let’s play schools to make real good money," Miles said.
