Northwestern Wildcats Make Gutsy Move with Wrigley Field Game

Published on: 23rd April, 2010

Who knew Jim Phillips wasn't just NU's athletic director? He also apparently is a riverboat gambler. He'd double down on a 13, he'd hit on 16, and he'd split Kings. Now he's "all-in" in an attempt to get Chicago professional sports fans to see the light, and start attending NU football games. For ...

Rare De-Commit for Northwestern Can Be Rectified with Outback Bowl Win

Published on: 14th December, 2009

Normally, when a recruit gives a verbal commitment to Northwestern in the Pat Fitzgerald era, you can safely assume they'll be on campus the following fall.

Bloomin’ Onion!: Northwestern Jumps Wisconsin for the Outback Bowl

Published on: 6th December, 2009

What a difference a year makes. Last season, an 8-4 Iowa team jumped a 9-3 NU squad for the Outback Bowl. People often cited NU's poor home attendance and lack of national appeal for the snub. Then Northwestern packed the Alamodome and gave Missouri the fight of their lives in an OT ...

Northwestern Football Making a Big Statement on Campus

Published on: 16th November, 2009

One of my roommates does not care about sports at all. He grew up in Florida in a family that was passionate about sports, but that fervor turned him off entirely. After I returned from Champaign Saturday night, I sat down to watch Pittsburgh beat Notre Dame. He entered the living room ...

Northwestern-Illinois Rivalry Runs Deep

Published on: 13th November, 2009

Last week I wrote about the budding rivalry NU has with the Iowa Hawkeyes. This week, the focus shifts to the only "trophy" game NU plays, the battle for the "Land of Lincoln" trophy with the Illinois Fighting Illini. Being from Seattle, I didn't grow up hearing all about the Fighting ...

A Modest Proposal for the Northwestern Administration to Consider

A friend of mine is a pretty big NU fan who co-anchors the weekly television show "SportsNight" on the Northwestern News Network. Today I mentioned to him that I had an interview scheduled with Brian Musso. His response? "Who's Brian Musso?"   Northwestern University needs an "Introduction to Northwestern Football History" course, and they need ...

Published on: 23rd October, 2009

If there's a pep rally the night before the Homecoming game, but no students attend, did it actually happen? Oh, the band was there; so were the cheerleaders and some unlucky football players. But besides that, I'm pretty sure I could count the students at tonight's pep rally on one hand. Freshman ...

You can feel it in the air at NU football practice. It's time for revenge. The 2008 season was cruising along, until Northwestern traveled to Bloomington to face a bad Indiana team. NU was ranked 22nd in the country and coming off an absolute whitewashing of Purdue for homecoming. IU meanwhile ...
