Season Review: Tale of two seasons for Wildcats

Northwestern experienced one of the most bizarre descents in the nation, watching a 4-0 start melt into a 5-7 record and last-place finish in the Legends Division. The low-light was a numbing seven-game losing skid that followed the 4-0 start. The pain finally ended with a season-ending win at rival Illinois. Injuries played a big part in ruining this season of promise for Pat Fitzgerald, as quarterback Kain Colter and running back Venric Mark—among others–never got on track.

Thursday links: Forbes.com ranks football teams

The most “valuable” Big Ten franchise: Michigan at No. 5. Next is Ohio State at No. 9; Nebraska No. 10; Penn State is No. 15; Wisconsin is No. 16. I guess I am a bit shocked that Ohio State isn’t No. 1 among Big Ten schools. I don’t care what metrics you use, how can the Buckeyes not be No. 1? Oh, well. It doesn’t really matter. *** The most emotional sports moment of the year?

Clothes Call: A look back at new 2013 uniform designs

With the year quickly coming to a close, I decided to take a look at the new basketball and football uniform designs that debuted in 2013.
