Sportsball! Win the points!

Uh, so, I've never been to a home football game, and I'm a senior this year. Northwestern has only been getting better the whole time I've been here, so I will make a point to go once or twice -- probably homecoming against Ohio State and maybe the Michigan game. We were ranked out of the gate and our defense is finally looking a bit more perky than usual. We got our bowl game win last year and people can barely contain themselves. Fingers crossed for a great year!

After watching the first two games, A&M's offense has improved. It improved from the first to the second game, and hopefully will keep on doing just that. Johnny is staying in the pocket a little longer and his passing has improved. We have 4 defensive starters that are coming off a two game suspension, so I hope that strengthens up the defense. It is going to be one heck of a game! So...BTHObama, Gig'em, and WHOOP!

I'm kind of surprised A&M v. Bama didn't get a prime time spot.

Some kid in the crowd was just waving a sign saying something along the lines of a ticket to this game cost a fortune, making the sign cost him some money, and the degree he'll get from Alabama is useless. I thought it was very funny.

Bama wins 49-42. A&M's defense better improve. They will real problems with teams that run the ball.

Bo Pelini making Husker Nation embarrassed again.

Granted he has a lot of youngsters on the team, but when are the excuses going to stop.

He did not have youngsters last year in those positions.

Heck, other teams start freshmen and win.

And that's not including the off field behavior.

Ohio State beats FAMU 76-0. That game was a blowout. But, go BUCKS! Kenny Guitton is amazing, and he's our backup. LOL.

Players mark gear in protest

In a gesture that organizers hope turns into an athlete-driven national movement, players from Georgia Tech, Georgia and Northwestern took the field Saturday with gear they had marked up to protest the NCAA's treatment of athletes on issues ranging from concussions to compensation.

Alabama still No. 1 in AP poll

With most of the top teams merely tuning up, there was little movement in The Associated Press college football poll this week. Alabama remained No. 1 and the first 14 teams in the rankings held their positions from last week.
