Football Tour: Dienhart's best from NU practice

KENOSHA, Wis. – It was a great day for practice, almost chilly. It was brief, as players worked in helmets and shoulder pads. It also was notable for who didn’t partake: WR Miles Shuler; DE Ifeadi Odenigbo; DE Sean McEvilly; OL Shane Merz; OL Ian Park; OT Jack Konopka; WR Tony Jones; RB Warren Long; S Traveon Henry; WR Cameron Dickerson were the most prominent. The Wildcats were snake-bitten last year by injuries en route to a 5-7 season. And they lost myriad close games, falling by three to Minnesota, seven to Iowa (in OT), three to Nebraska (on a

NU camp preview: Who replaces Mark, Jones?

Northwestern was primed for a big 2013. It didn’t happen, as the Wildcats missed the postseason for the first time since 2007, ending a five-year run. Pat Fitzgerald’s crew welcomes back lots of veteran talent from a team that started 4-0 but finished 5-7, enduring a seven-game losing skid before ending the season with a victory over rival Illinois. The offense has nine starters back; the defense has eight. And motivation shouldn’t be an issue after the disappointing finish.

I’m one class shy of the Northwestern degree I’ve worked so hard

See Tom Dienhart, Sean Merriman and Brent Yarina’s picks in this post. See our other countdown features: Tom Dienhart: Nebraska. I just like the classic simplicity of the “N” helmet, which is iconic. Too conservative for you? Well, the school has introduced some alternate looks to spice things up. Still, the iconic basic red jersey and white pants are difficult to top. *** Sean Merriman:

32-year-old Navy SEAL trying out for Northwestern

There are plenty of outstanding storylines heading into this year’s Big Ten football season. But none of them top the one of an active Navy SEAL trying to walk on to a team. That is the case with 32-year-old Tom Hruby, a junior at Northwestern who is hoping to walk-on as a defensive end. If he does make the roster, Hruby would become one of the oldest players to ever play Division I college football. Hruby has a wife and three children, and currently lives in a dorm room on campus, while spending the weekend with his family. “I know
