Being a Big Ten fan, based in Ohio, I sincerely wanted Northwestern to beat Missouri, and was very disappointed they lost a game they should have won. However, I have to say the one thing that became unbearable to watch, other than those annoying cutaway TV shots of Chase Daniel's mom and dad, was Northwestern's second half play calling. Abominable. If the Wildcats want to get that second bowl win they should quit throwing passes to the sidelines. At the very least, throw them to the northwest.

I Have to agree with Larry. As an avid NU fan by the end of the year I could call the play in certain situations. I love the new defensive coordinator, but I was not to thrilled with his offensive alternative. The last few years we put up gaudy offensive stats. this year we were way to conservative. If they had pushed the ball up field more we could have done better. But over all it was a great season with a disappointing ending. Next year is going to be a challenge to repeat this years success but we should be able to win enough games to go to a bowl. Go Cats! and thank you Fitz for a job well done.
