Gas station defends Northern Illinois with ‘Suck our oranges’ sign (Picture)
Northern Illinois is going to face Florida State in the Orange Bowl on New Year’s Day, whether we like it or not. Many feel as though the Huskies’ BCS selection symbolizes all that is wrong with the current BCS system, given the fact that elite teams like Oklahoma and Texas A&M who have faced elite opponents all year did not get an invite.
Kirk Herbstreit told us all how he feels about the selection with his epic rant on Sunday, and it’s probably safe to say most people agree with what the ESPN analyst had to say. However, the Marathon gas station on Lincoln Highway in Illinois strongly disagrees with the majority, as evidenced by the lettering they put on their sign earlier this week.
“Suck our Oranges, ESPN. Go Huskies!” the sign read as Huskie Wire pointed out.
There’s a good chance Florida State will prove that the Huskies were the wrong choice next month, but anything can happen. Northern Illinois certainly won’t have to search thoroughly to find bulletin-board material.
