After two games in the 2013 B1G football season....

...NU is 4-2 (0-2). However, as some predicted on the pre-game prediction thread, this was going to be a difficult game to win. Whether it was played at Camp Randall, coming off the most hyped NU...

Pat Fitzgerald's Coaching Future

Given the improved performance of NU's football since the 6-6 campaign of 2011-2012, Pat Fitzgerald has been considered a 'hot coaching' prospect by many in the national media. Prior to Brady Hoke...

Thoughts on Carmody, National Signing Day, Jim Phillips, non-revenue sports, etc

Carmody/NU Basketball With 60% of the B1G season over, let's take a look at the season so far, factually. Overall: 13-11 Non-conf: 9-4 B1G: 4-7 Home: 8-7 Away: 3-4 Neutral: 2-0 ...

2013 Gator Bowl: Positives/Negatives

First off, Happy New Year to everyone! Congrats to Jim Phillips, Pat Fitzgerald, the 2012-2013 NU football team, and all the fans/alums that support it. I watched the first half from...

SOP Tailgate @ Capital One/Outback/Gator Bowl

Who will be attending bowl game? Since all locations are in Florida, it's not as if the particular bowl will determine the attendance. It would be interesting to get a head count, so that a...

Carmody's reputation amongst B1G coaches.

From Chris Emma. http://northwestern.scout.com/2/1233613.html So, what bothers me is how coaches say ALL COACHES are great. When Thad Matta says, "Bill is to me one of the best coaches in...

Thoughts, NU Alums in NYC, and NU's B1G Future

First off, I went to Blondie's on the Upper West Side of NYC yesterday to watch the Nebraska/NU game, and it was INSANELY AWESOME. I'm not kidding at all when I said EVERY seat was taken and fully...

NYC - NU Alums

Besides Rodger, who else on this message board will be at Blondie's on Saturday for the Nebraska/NU game? I am hoping to come for the full game, but I will at least be there for a while. I'm...

Why Cobb suspended?!

To everyone who said we will not find out, I told you we would. I am so proud that NU has become a big enough sports program that reporters will dig and dig and dig to find out information. Teddy...

The importance of this year for NU Football

NU is 5-0 (1-0), and while the schedule hasn't played out the way NU would like, that is not NU's fault in anyway. But, with the B1G being flat-out awful (please don't debate this Chad), NU's...

My Thoughts on JerShon Cobb

So, after having a night to sleep on this and discuss this with my good friend who founded the Welsh-Ryan Rowdies and loves NU basketball, I had some differing thoughts. Since I, nor many...

NU Facilities

For the people who say NU needs upgraded facilities in football and basketball to compete, here is an interesting nugget from Chris Emma (great follow on twitter). Chris Emma ‏@CEmmaFOX ...

Anyone catch Mike & Mike this morning and what Mike Greenberg said?

Basically, it started with discussion about Allen Pinkett's comments about ND with Golic, and then the discussion evolved into, what is the tangible harm to lower admission standards for athletes...

Fitz at Big Ten Media Day

Well, I'm sure L8 or Rodger will do a more extensive post later, but I'll start. As we all know B1G media day is today, and of course, there are many dumb quotes from many coaches. But, here are...

Tough Week for NU

First, Stewart Mandel of SI (and a NU alum) calls NU's football program a 'peasant.' It is hard to argue, but tough to see. Then, Jabari Parker finalizes a list of 10 schools, amazing NU is not...

Big Ten Basketball - 2012/2013

I miss everyone and the debate, so I wanted to get some thoughts here. This just came out on ESPN.com,...

Can I get everyone on the record about Carmody?

So, the season is over, and I just want to see who, by screenname and not a poll, is in favor of or anti-Carmody? As of Wednesday, March 21st at 10:15 a.m. ET, NUAlum02 - Fire Sec. 112 - Fire ...

Chris Collins

I know L8 thinks that it would make no sense for Chris Collins to leave Duke, but I disagree. Eventually, every assistant wants to be a head coach, and while Coach K will eventually retire, I...

Greenstein NAILS it about Shurna

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/columnists/greenstein/ct-spt-0127-northwestern-basketball--20120127,0,4899694.column Amazing that John Shurna could walk away as the statisical greatest...

Fitzgerald is delusional.

When people ask me why do I have a personal dislike for Fitz, here is why:  This is from Teddy G's twitter: Fitz: "What’s most disappointing right now, how darn close we are and for us not to...

Forget the future - NU is HORRIBLE NOW.

So, since many posters do not wish to discuss the future, trends, and direction of program/NU athletics, I will table that till the end of the season. But, let's discuss THIS season. Forget the...

Fitzgerald: 2020 - Jim P's "Best coach in America."

I think as Northwestern football fans, we are all disappointed. Even more negative posters/fans like myself did not envision this. Currently at 2-3 (0-2) and even with some mediocre teams coming...

What is the excuse now?

I want to hear, what are the excuses for this loss?  If you are a fan that says, we got beat by a better team in a close game, then I have NO issue with you.  But, if you are a Fitzgerald fan, I...

Fitz' silly quotes bother me. AGAIN.

Surprise, surprise, I have an issue with some of the things Fitz...

BC Game Viewing Party - Washington, D.C.

So, as many of you know, I live in the Washington, D.C. metro area in addition to Herman and BigTenDC. Anyone else? The reason I ask is because the NU Young Alumni Club of DC (which I co-founded,...

Option 1 - Lame.

My friend just received this letter. Lame, lame, lame, option #1. Eventhough it is reasonable, it has that goofy, "Chicago's Big Ten team" on it. I hope an Illinois player from Chicago comes on...

What the experts think....

Sports Illustrated Big Ten preview So, funny how the experts have the same projections as most optimistic NU fans? I really do think this is a realistic projection, higher than my prediction, but...

Brady Hoke can suck a fat dick.

I'm sooooooooooooooooooooo done with "We are ....." in reference to people feeling they are entitled to win. There is NO entitlements in sports. I grew up in East Tennessee, it was a given that...

I love this. 9 conference games.

(RS: Promoted from the fanposts because I was wondering: how do y'all feel about a nine-game Big Ten schedule?) I know it is in 2017, which is really far away. But this is just fantastic, more...

I'm so done with.

I'm so done with Northwestern being "Chicago's Big Ten team". Not only is this illogical by the following critera: NU is not in Chicago, NU's alumni rank 8th in terms of alumni bases in Chicago...
