Heck, I'll take the Motor City Bowl if we can just win one for once in my lifetime! Seriously, win or lose Coach Fitzgerald has exceeded all expectations and grown tremendously on the job and this has been a great season.

perhaps next year, Big Ten schools will start thinking twice before automatically picking NU as their "patsy" opponent for the annual Homecoming game.

I doubt it - prior to Coach Walker's untimely death, Northwestern was 5-3 three straight years in a row in the Big Ten.

And since 1995 - NU has a .500 or better record against most of the conference.

I'd say let them keep overlooking NU and the 'Cats will do their fair share of making homecoming crowds less festive.

What a great triumph, especially on the heels of that debacle vs. Indiana. Take the Purple to Pasdena! OK, maybe Akron or Tulsa is more realistic.
