    Ohio State - Northwestern

    Anyone else notice the sea of red in that stadium? That's embarrassing for Northwestern

    I remember watching when they played Nebraska last year. That might have been even worse sadly.

    Re: Ohio State - Northwestern

    There's a billboard on I-294 here in Chicago area that says "Northwestern - Chicago's Big Ten Team". I laughed the first time I saw that. I would say NW is pretty low on the totem pole of Big Ten fans in the area.

    Has Northwestern been wearing those helmets all season? They're pretty cool

    They need some advise from our turf management department, that field looks like crap.

    Do you KNOW how many bodies are buried under that field? I can't believe they can even get that stuff to take root with as often as it gets dug up.

    I figure it's bad on purpose to try to slow Ohio State down.

    They haven't mowed in like a week to try and slow down OSU's speed. The old tricksters.

    Re: Ohio State - Northwestern

    OSU fake punt on their side of the field fails. That says a lot about how OSU feels about this game.

    And the tackle by the NW player was textbook.

    Re: Ohio State - Northwestern

    Rooting hard for NW in this game. Need to get OSU out of the NC conversation post haste.

    In regards to attendance, I remember watching their game against Western Michigan earlier this year....they were at half capacity or less, while ranked in the top 20. Brutally pathetic. Can you imagine the froth our fan base would be worked up in if we were in the top 20? We could be playing against Ankeny Centennial and JTS would be overflowing.

    And it was a WR making the tackle. Good stuff.

    Re: Ohio State - Northwestern

    Attendance just isn't going to happen at NW.

    Only 8,000 undergraduates. Grads aren't hanging around Evanston either.

    NW ranks what in Chicago sports? 8th? You've got Bulls, Blackhawks, Cubs, White Sox, Bears, Notre Dame, Illini. That's just off the top of my head.

    They're buried, and don't have the numbers to do anything about it, because the second they lose a game, there's an entire weeks worth of content that is more interesting to the market.

    Yeah, when it's convenient for the celebrity media alumni to be fans, they'll turn out...but they'll move on instantly as well.
