Northwestern's Forgotten NBA Star

In this season of basketball futility, a story to brighten our spirits: Forgotten among Northwestern's many alumni is the NBA* league MVP from 1994!

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:

My dad came up with this gem this week. Enjoy!

Home Opener: Pre-game activities

As LincolnParkWildcat noted in the linked post, the scenery around Campus for tailgating has changed. I'm a new season ticket holder and am bringing a non-NU friend (also, new season ticket holder) along to the Syracuse game and was looking to bring some food or drink and join in on a tailgate. I'm putting this post up to find out if anyone has room for extras at their tailgate and if so where on campus they do it. I haven't done any tailgating since graduating and would love to meet some of the fine members of this board. Additionally, I'm posting the this in case anyone in the community has do's, don'ts, or events (like the popular, but now outlawed, Goose Island tent) they recommend around NU tailgating.

Custom/Retro programs from my dad are BACK! BEAT CUSE!!


My dad bought a stuffed wildcat and has it in his mancave filled with Northwestern memorabilia. A strategically placed orange works wonders this week


The Sherman Ave. boys piling on the Cal hate.

Hey! Are you going to NU v Cal in San Francisco? Are you lamenting the fact that it's a night game and the Alumni tailgate sold out, leaving you with nothing to do for like a million hours before the game? Do you like boats? Well you should sign up for this. They still need like 20+ people to make it an actual thing. Also I'm going to go, so it'll automatically be awesome.

Here it comes again

Recorded here for posterity
