"Student-Athlete" Is An NCAA-Created Legal Dodge

The term "Student-Athlete" was created by the NCAA to get out of paying worker's compensation benefits to injured players.

Michigan 74, Northwestern 51

NU got blown out again

Northwestern Basketball: Still Terrible

NU opened Big Ten play by losing to Wisconsin, the first of what surely will be many embarrassing losses.

NU vs Western Michigan preview/game thread

Northwestern might actually win a basketball game today, so stop what you're doing and watch. Or at least come talk about it.

Northwestern Basketball Is In For A Long Year

It should have been obvious before the season. Now it's a reality.

Northwestern 72, Eastern Illinois 53

Chris Collins wins his Northwestern debut, thanks to a big game from Drew Crawford.

A New Challenge For Chris Collins

Chris Collins has been outstanding since he's become Northwestern's coach, but the real challenge has yet to begin.

Ohio State 40, Northwestern 30

Northwestern loses a heartbreaker to Ohio State.

If You're Against Paying Players, You're Wrong

More and more people are coming down on the side of paying college athletes, but it's embarrassing that there's even a debate at all. If you're against players being paid, you should be ashamed of yourself.

NU basketball coaching search: Al Skinner?

Al Skinner's been out of college basketball for three years, but had a great run at Boston College. Could he end up as Bill Carmody's replacement?

Tim Doyle Punched Out by Kendall Gill

Northwestern basketball's least favorite son managed to annoy Kendall Gill enough to where Gill attacked him. Which was a bad idea, given that Gill took up boxing after his basketball career.

New NU Coach: Don't make the same mistake Iowa did

Iowa has a very good team this year, but they won't make the tournament because of a soft non-conference schedule. The new Northwestern coach, whoever he is, shouldn't make the same mistake.

NU Coaching Search: Bucknell's Dave Paulsen?

After winning his third consecutive Patriot League title at Bucknell this season, Dave Paulsen is certainly going to attract interest from high-major programs, and Northwestern will probably be one of them.

NU coaching search: Tommy Amaker?

Tommy Amaker flamed out his first time in the Big Ten, but the Harvard coach has proven he knows how to win at a school with stringent academic standards. Will NU dip into the Ivy League after what happened with Bill Carmody?

Bill Carmody, Alternate Histories, and Dumb Luck

After an embarrassing loss to Illinois that ensures another season with no NCAA tournament, the Bill Carmody hot seat talk is heating up. But this season, and the lack of NCAA tournament appearances, matter less than you'd think.

Noted Piece Of Garbage Kevin O'Neill Fired By USC

Kevin O'Neill was relieved of his duties today at USC, allowing me to reflect on how awful Kevin O'Neill was as Northwestern basketball coach and how awful he was overall as a human being.

Big Ten basketball conference preview

A look at how the nation's best conference stacks up this season headed into Big Ten play.

Northwestern 63, Brown 42

Even with Reggie Hearn on the bench with a sprained ankle, Northwestern had no problem with Brown thanks to 13 for 24 three point shooting.

Stanford 70, Northwestern 68

Despite falling behind by 18 in the first half and losing Reggie Hearn to an apparent ankle injury, Northwestern fought back to tie Stanford, but ended up losing a heartbreaker.

Drew Crawford Out For Season

WELP. Bad news, as Northwestern's best player, Drew Crawford, will need shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season, so the NCAA Tournament, maybe not so much.

Northwestern likely headed to Gator Bowl

Bad news, a worse bowl. Good news, better chance of winning.

Northwestern's defense suffocates TCU in 55-31 win

Northwestern sets a school record by holding TCU to just 31 points and improves to 5-0

Northwestern improves to 4-0.

Northwestern 80, Fairleigh Dickinson 53

Northwestern basketball improves to 3-0 with an easy win over Fairleigh Dickinson.

Northwestern 81, Mississippi Valley State 68

Reggie Hearn and Jared Swopshire lead Northwestern past a surprisingly game Delta Devils squad.

Basketball preview profiles: Nikola Cerina

A look at Nikola Cerina, a transfer from TCU who will begin his first season for Northwestern this fall. Can the 6-foot-9 forward from Serbia be an improvement on centers Luka Mirkovic and Davide Curletti for the Wildcats?
