Terps Rout ‘Cats, Season Basically Over, You Guys

This is much better than a picture from the actual game, trust us. Official Northwestern Chronicle Highlights Reel Click that link! Highlights: [0:00-0:24] A full student section settles in to watch an early defensive battle between two mediocre teams from two great conferences.

Like Life, November Basketball is Meaningless but Better than Nothing

Some college basketball faithful may sermonize the need for non-conference early games to you, but really, the games in November don’t mean much. Northwestern hasn’t lost a November game since 2009, and that should tell you all you need to know, really. I suggest everyone wear gray scarves, sunglasses, and black berets to the student […]

Keeping Up With The Joneses

Two Northwestern players with the last name Jones, Tyris Jones and Tony Jones, scored a touchdown in Northwestern’s 50-14 thrashing of the hapless Illini. A third, Christian Jones, came this close to scoring one of his own. That’s half of the Joneses on the team. Why am I bringing up this random fact? A) It’s […]

Wildcats Edge Some Guy Named Usher

The only MSVU-related thing we could actually find. I was there when the season ended, when the Northwestern Men’s Basketball Team lost in overtime to Minnesota in the Big Ten Tournament. I became The Underwhelming Hulk, a lanky spectacled brainless creature that breathed in air and breathed out fury. Something deep and important in the very back […]

What the Hell Happened in Ann Arbor?

What a shitty weekend. My computer broke and had to be replaced. The Chron sat out at the Rock and we froze our asses off. And, Northwestern lost to Michigan in one of the most embarrassing manners possible, putting myself and other fans of NU athletics in a state of shell shock, not to mention […]

Shucks

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The Northwestern Wildcats are leading their opponent for almost the entire game, and then they collapse in the fourth quarter and end up losing. Sound familiar? It should, as it happened just two weeks ago against Penn State (and far too often all of last season). Northwestern was ahead […]

The Game Has Changed

Rafael Nadal may be ready to return to tennis. But is tennis ready for him? It’s hard to believe Rafael Nadal has been gone from the game for so long. So long, in fact, that he may not recognize it when he returns this December. When Nadal was eliminated this June in a shocking second […]

Winning is Winning, I Guess

Northwestern vs. UMinn result: 21-13 It’s good to see Northwestern winning again. Granted, it’s just one game, but after last week’s loss, I was very worried about the future of this team. The Penn State loss was brutal. So much so, that I forgot to write about it because I was too busy drowning in […]

All I Can Do is Laugh- At the NFL

This article was originally published on Sep 26 For those who don’t know and haven’t been around a TV or the internet in the past 24 hours, the Seattle Seahawks “defeated” the Green Bay Packers with a highly controversial Hail Mary pass as time expired. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson lobbed up a high arching pass to the end zone […]

NU Destroys South Dakota’s Coyotes

This article was originally published on Sep 22, 2012 After three straight games against BCS teams, Northwestern said “fuck it” and turned their schedule on Easy Mode. The Wildcats cruised to an easy 38-7 win over the South Dakota Coyotes. There isn’t too much to say about the game. Northwestern’s Venric Mark scored a touchdown on […]
