To show I’m not just blowing smoke, here are some other suggested sponsors for a few of the Big Ten basketball and football coaches:
Everything is for sale.
Chris Collins was introduced as Northwestern’s 24th head men’s basketball coach Tuesday. But that may have been the second most important development inside Welsh-Ryan Arena.
Collins and Northwestern may be an ideal fit. It will certainly look and sound that way while it’s still all about appearances.
Bill Carmody is officially out at Northwestern, ending a 13-year run that did not include any NCAA Tournament berths.
The general consensus is that Carmody’s job is in the hands of Phillips right now, but a new question was raised after Thursday’s loss: Does Carmody even want to return?
He needs to cut the cord with Bill Carmody. Then, if NU’s AD is as smart as NU’s student body, he’ll make every effort to replace him with Duke associate head coach Chris Collins, a prodigal North Shore son who would fit Evanston like a winter glove.
The Chicago Cubs and Northwestern University announced what they are calling an “innovative, multi-year event and reciprocal marketing partnership” Tuesday that will include five Wildcats football games at Wrigley Field.
With no games scheduled until Monday, the Northwestern basketball team is taking a break this week. But here in the meantime, what I’m wondering is if the Northwestern basketball program will ever decide to break away from coach Bill Carmody.
Trustees at Northwestern University have voted in favor of a massive new multipurpose athletic facility on Lake Michigan, according to a published report.
Bald eagles have returned to a Cook County Forest Preserve south of Chicago for the first time in 100 years.
Northwestern has since decided to retain Carmody, and athletic director Jim Phillips said expectations have never been higher for the Wildcats.
Carmody led the Wildcats to their fourth straight NIT this season, but came under fire when the team failed in a number of chances to secure the school’s first ever NCAA Tournament berth.
Duke associate head coach Chris Collins reportedly prefers the Northwestern job over the Illinois job.
After 12 years, you can’t say that Carmody hasn’t had his chance in Evanston. He has.
A 22-ounce basketball never carried so much weight for a program that desperately needed it to find its way inside the 18-inch diameter of the rim.
Conference commissioner Jim Delany has long been pegged as the highest-profile figurehead in opposition to a college football playoff, but it appears the Big Ten is changing its tune.
Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked NU as the 12th-best college in the country. The school demands academic excellence. So why does its athletic program so revel in mediocrity?
It’s estimated that the rehab for an Achilles tendon rupture such as the one suffered last November by Northwestern quarterback Dan Persa takes anywhere from 12 to 14 months.
What is a small private school with very little football tradition like Northwestern doing spending money on billboards across the country to promote Dan Persa’s Heisman Trophy campaign?
