Can the Cardiac 'Cats Remain Relevant?

I offered my input with a guest post on Breakfast with the Big Ten on the history of Northwestern football misery and pessimism slowly turning into cautious optimism with each win in our fight to stay relevant.

Soccer Preview: Where is Big Ten Race Headed?

Despite the success of the team this fall that plays what Rodger would call "real football", the team with the best chance to take home a Big Ten title is still the men's soccer squad who took home the crown last season. The 'Cats are struggling for the first time this season with consecutive non-conference midweek losses sandwiching a sloppy Big Ten win over Michigan State to maintain a first place tie with Indiana. They have the weekend off of Big Ten play, but play the tenth ranked, Notre Dame Fightin' Irish Tuesday. See how I think the Wildcats will do and what's on tap for the rest of the Big Ten this weekend.

Next Games Could Sharpen Big Ten Race

I breakdown this weekend's men's soccer contests and group the conference of 7 teams into 3 haves and 4 have-nots. Northwestern is in the former group and are still favorites to repeat their Big Ten title at 1-0 in conference play and 6-1-2 overall, despite having their 17 game regular season unbeaten streak snapped Wednesday night. The Wildcats have their first nationally televised game Sunday at 3:30 PM (ET) on BTN vs Michigan State.

Off-Tackle Empire Closing Argument: Northwestern

Off-Tackle Empire (and yours truly) look at Northwestern. Come for the football analysis, stay for the references to Ender's Game, Us3's "Cantaloop," and Tyrion slapping Joffrey over and over again.....
