It's so cold in the E: You in Chicago today? I heard it's frickin freezing! Northwestern athletes told me:
Is there any way I can speed up global warming??#ImFreezing— Kale Abrahamson (@kaleabe13) January 22, 2013
I woke this morning and it was -1 degree!— Ifeadi Odenigbo(@IfeadiOdenigbo) January 22, 2013
I have to travel south for some warmer weather, I wonder if Northwestern is south enough.... ;-)— Sherrick(@SherrickM) January 22, 2013
0° in Chicago right now?! That is brutal!— Al Netter (@AlNetter) January 22, 2013
-15 degrees Celsius outside, it feels like -24...now is the time when i really miss summer...— Alexandru Olah (@Alexandru_Olah) January 22, 2013
Haha I don't live there anymore suck it
It's good that Northwestern wraps up almost all its football recruits before Signing Day, because if they didn't, they'd all just log on to Twitter and see half of their incoming teammates being like "IT'S -35 DEGREES HERE" and sign with Arizona State, like we all should've.
(And yes, Alex Olah uses Celsius.)
NUper Bowl: The Super Bowl is set, and Al Netter is on the San Francisco 49ers... practice squad!
He hasn't played yet this year, but he's still a part of an organization playing for the Super Bowl, so that's nice. On the active roster, all listed as backups: A.J. Jenkins, Garrett Celek, Scott Tolzien, and Jewel Hampton. Go B1G 2010! (You might have also seen Marquice Cole getting burned for a touchdown in the AFC Championship game.) NU hasn't had a Super Bowl winner since Zach Strief with the Saints, so pull for the Niners.
Texas forever: David Nwabuisi will be repping TX in the Texas vs. the Nation all-star game, which, by my count, is the fourth most appealing pre-draft all-star game. Boosie's a long shot to get drafted, but he could wind up as a free agent.
WE STILL WON A BOWL: IT WAS STILL AWESOME
Me elsewhere: I wrote this piece over at .com about the ten most overpaid coaches - by win - with fun B1G hate.
