Culture Club

There was one moment in this game that stuck with me. No, not Coleman's 10th rebound (to get his triple-double) shown in Holly's photo right there. Great moment, but that's not it. It was an interaction between two Syracuse players. I'm now going to

Postscript, Northwestern

I used to think of myself as someone who didn't like to be alone. That was before I had kids. Now, doing literally anything alone -- stringing Christmas lights, seeing a movie, going to the grocery store -- is at the top of my self-care wish list.

Convincing Fashion

I've written about the 1994 season so many times. It was my first senior year (you know, the one before my second senior year), and I was there for nearly every painstaking moment. I was in Soldier Field on that Thursday night to watch us miss a 54-yard

Wait Till Next Year

I don't know how to write this article. I know how to write the other article. I've written some form of Wait Till Next Year at least 50 times. Even offseason posts have been littered with "by the time he reaches his junior year he should be..."

From The Stands - Northwestern 2022

Hard to describe my mood. Just got back to the tailgate and chatted with Carmen and he's in the same spot. Yes, there's no Big Ten Championship Game. But when I say I don't care about that in this moment, I really don't care about that in this moment

SOC - Northwestern 2022

I'm in my Chicago hotel room and I'm nervous. I didn't think I'd be nervous but I'm nervous. Let's talk about why I might be nervous. First off, it's Northwestern. Losing to them as many times as we lost to them the last 20 years has been really

Those Were The Days - Northwestern

I did it AGAIN. I have Detlef's TWTD. All I have to do is cut and paste it into an article and hit the publish button. But because it's the Friday after Thanksgiving, I always forget. It's 11:54 PM, I sat down to write the SOC in my Chicago hotel room

Necessary Roughness

OK, so I know your collective focus is squarely pointed north towards Evanston, so I'll keep this one short. This Black Friday night hoops game was a planned execution with new to D-1 Lindenwood serving as the sacrificial lamb. It was a strategic

Craig Has The Scout - Northwestern 2022

My last CHTS intro for the year. WAIT, that's not true. There will be another CHTS for the bowl game. Perhaps by then all of the other usernames will be fixed and Craig can post this as himself. Or perhaps by then mine will break as well and you'll all

Tale Of Two Cities XVI: Mailbag 2

Seems weird to end on 16 here. Maybe I should make up a post so that the Tale Of Two Cities series reaches 17. Would allow me to start the next one with my standard "this is one of the seventeen posts written about this past weekend" jokes. Oh well.

Tale Of Two Cities XV: Mailbag 1

Gonna wrap up this little "blogging" series by taking some questions. And this first one isn't even a question. It's a really good response that was buried under 30 other comments in a recent post and I wanted to cut-and-paste it here and then discuss

Tale Of Two Cities XIV: The Field Pass Michigan Recap

I took most of the last two days off. Battery symbol was red so I needed to plug myself into the charger. I've got an old battery, so I'm only charged up to 71% at this point, but that's enough to get back into this. We'll start with the Michigan recap

Tale Of Two Cities XIII: Postscript, Michigan

I've never understood the "no moral victories" people. Moral victories are real. Some coaches might say they aren't, but they've got ulterior motives. They can't be trusted as sources about the existence of moral victories. Fans who say moral victories

Tale Of Two Cities XII: The Hangover

Editor's Note: This is a Tyler article. But I'm publishing it under my byline. Because for some reason, comments aren't allowed on Tyler articles right now. Craig can't publish... Tyler's articles aren't allowing comments... we've pretty much reached
