Merry Christmas, From Your Friends at Northwestern


It was a lean year at Ryan Field, but we've got a few blessings to count and a whole lot to look forward to.

Sippin' on Purple Bowl Pick'em - UPDATED!

Yo, folks. I was talking with a friend tonight, and realized that if we Northwestern fans were going to be stuck caring only about basketball this winter, we might as well see who knows our bowl...

Your Black Friday B1G Gamethread


It's...um...Iowa at Nebraska! So there's that! If y'all don't blow this out, it'll stay for tomorrow. There are more games then. I could elaborate, but I don't want to.

Big Ten Basketball Power-Poll: Drinking Games!


Basketball season in the B1G brings out the best and drunkest in us as we take to the indoors to enjoy yet another exercise in futility. Wait, some teams actually make it to the NCAA tournament?...

2013: Post Week 12 Bowl Projections


Off Tackle Empire's wildly inaccurate bowl projections for the Big Ten following week 12: now even more wildly inaccurate!

OTE Staff Picks: Week 10


We're talking #B1Grunning in IC and Lincoln, #B1Gscoring in Bloomington and [ERROR], and #B1Gmatchup in East Lansing! Oh, and Illinois-Penn State, too.

JMIII Receives Full Scholarship


From the NUSports website, this link surfaced showing James Montgomery III being called up in front of the full team, being praised for his hard work and perimeter defense, then being rewarded with a full scholarship. Everyone's favorite (former) walk-on then called his mom and sister, who were predictably pretty damn happy. For what it's worth, JMIII averaged .7 ppg, .5 rpg, and .3 spg, appearing most often after injuries forced Drew Crawford to seek a medical redshirt. He reached a high of 15 minutes in a rout at Purdue (that I was at--ugh), and scored a season-high 4 points against Michigan in a 94-66 rout. Congrats, James! I embedded the Northwestern Sports tweets below:

ICYMI. RT @NUMensBball: MUST WATCH: @coach_collins surprises @MontytheThird by awarding him a scholarship. #B1GCats http://t.co/dhncSlYMWo
