No, I will still probably cheer for NIU. I don't have a problem with inviting nonAQ teams. My issue is with the quality of this particular team which I don't believe is on the same level as most of the other non-AQ teams that have been invited in the past. Basically, I consider NIU (or Kent State had they been selected) to be more like Hawaii than TCU, Boise, and Utah of past teams. Any elitist perspective I have would be simply that I don't feel the MAC conference is at the same level as the MWC had been or even the WAC and so a top record in that conference doesn't carry the same cache.
