I Survived Superstorm Sandy and a Nor’easter So I Get To Predict a Wildcat Win

Hey You Guys - Hang In There

First, my sincere sympathies to all of those who were affected by Sandy and the Nor’easter. I had a huge hassle getting back from Homecoming in Evanston, arriving just before the airport was closed. Then I got to deal with a blackout in the midst of a hurricane. And finally, clean up. 

Then less than a week later, I got to deal with the Nor’easter. Not nearly as bad as Sandy thankfully. 

But for all of that - I know that I had it tons easier than millions of others - especially those still cold and in the dark. Hang in there. 

Okay, I’m running out of time for predictions. 

Wildcats Head to the Wolverines’ Lair

Northwestern’s B1G CCG chances are dependent on winning out and hoping that the Cornhuskers lose twice in the next three games. This means that the season is essentially in single elimination mode - another loss and they will not be playing in Indy.

So here’s the deal - the Wildcats’ chances all depend on how many quarters the team plays. In the Penn State and Nebraska losses, the Wildcats did not play a complete game. They played about 3.5 quarters, losing in the final minutes. If Northwestern plays anything less than a full 60 minutes, they run a major chance of losing. 

To sum up in The Good, The Bad, and the Probable:

The Good: The Wildcats play a full 60 minutes and whomp the Wolverines 32-18. 

The Bad: NU doesn’t really get on track and are slowly choked to death in the Wolverine’s den by 9-28.

The Probable: Northwestern plays really strong for 58 minutes before *almost* giving the game away. But they do hold on, winning 34-32. 

More later...

Go Cats!
