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!

* Where NBA = Nepal Basketball Association

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.


The Sherman Ave. boys piling on the Cal hate.

Sailgate 2

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.

Matt Eliason SportsCenter In-Studio Interview

Matt Eliason stops by ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT to do a one-on-one for SportsCenter about the bicycle kick heard around the world in the Messi and Friends match.

Favorable Women's Lax tournament draw?

With ND/Stanford, Penn State and UNC standing in NU's way to the championship, they won't have to face the likes of Syracuse, Florida, or Maryland before the final. Seems like the best draw that NU could have hoped for.

Good Night, Sweet Keg.

TKOE closed for good on Sunday. I, for one, never climbed over its fence to gain entrance, but I did (coughloseafakecough) always make sure to gain legal admittance. Pourin' a little out for The Keg tonight.

College Football Bracketology?

SBNation's doing a cool look at seeding the top 64 teams in college football--complete with auto-bids--into a March Madness-style tournament! Check it out for yourself, but NU garnered a #6 seed, facing Arkansas State in round 1, with a potential date with South Carolina waiting in round 2!

ESPN thing on recruiting needs

ESPN posted this article the other day about recruiting needs around the B1G, but this stood out to me: Biggest recruit: ESPN 300 dual-threat quarterback Matt Alviti had offers from some big programs including Notre Dame, but he chose nearby Northwestern. The Wildcats have an unsettled situation at quarterback, and as a local product Alviti could be called for by the fans if the quarterback play does not improve. Now, I know that Alviti is probably the best recruit in this class, but I consider myself a fan and are we actually disappointed with the QB play to the point of calling for Alviti right off the bat? This just seems like an incredibly naive statement, but I guess I should expect nothing less from the WWL.
