Great job for the Cats. As a kid whose mom has worked there for 25+ years and an alum, I just felt proud. Did anyone else see the goals that the team had for the year? Besides winning a bowl game, one of the goals was to earn an NU degree. Something classy about that. And realistic.
As for the Chase Daniels' parents - I couldn't get over how many times they showed them! It was ridiculous! Not once - NOT ONCE - did I see the proud parents of ANY NU player. Was it Mizzou alum at work at ESPN? Was it simple lack of research to find NU parents? Regardless, the play-by-play and camera shots were so one-sided that even Mizzou fans I was watching with commented on it!

Northwestern has nothing to feel sorry about. They did a great job in the game and if they can continue putting together 9-game winning seasons, will be a power in the Big 10 and nation.

This is just about as ignorant a response as you'll see on a message board. This head coach has taken a bunch of reasonably but not extremely talented kids and produced 9 wins, not to mention coming within a missed extra point of winning its bowl game. Compare that result to what Illinois, my alma mater, did with supposedly a bunch of top 25 talent, or what Wisconsin did against a so-so ACC team.
