They Didn't Ask Me


So... the Northwestern Wildcats were 2-0 going into this weekend's games. I had not realized that they'd made the #23 spot in both major polls. NU hasn't been in the NCAA Division I top 25 since October 2013 -- I remember, because I was still in the hospital watching them. Now don't get too excited. We haven't hit the rest of the Big Ten juggernaut yet, so most years any top 25 ranking happens early in the season. On the other hand, some of the mighty Big Ten teams have struggled early. Michigan has lost a game. And #1 Ohio State was tied 10-10 at the half with Northern Illinois today -- they only won by 20-13, not a Buckeye slaughterfest. I keep telling people, you've got to take the Huskies seriously.

Just before I went to take my nap at 12:10, after a late breakfast following my ER adventures (DW) (LJ), I remembered that the Northwestern game was actually going to be on in West Michigan.

#23 Northwestern at Duke, 12:30pm on MyTV -- cable channel 789.

No problem, I figured they'd still be at it when I got up in two hours. And they were. Northwestern, wearing white and new dumb looking Wildcat logo helmets -- much prefer the simple N logo -- was ahead 12-7 with most of the third quarter to go. So as we settled down to lunch, it was Northwestern football.

Duke managed a field goal, and it was 12-10. Then we got a touchdown and the game ended at 19-10.

Hey, ho, Northwestern is three-and-oh! Go Cats!
