Northwestern didn’t belong in the Big Ten when I was on campus in the late 1980s, at least not in the two sports that most people pay attention to. That didn’t change how I felt about the school, but it was hard to routinely be embarrassed by all of the other schools in the Big Ten (back when there were only ten schools in the conference).
Since that time, the conference has expanded to 14 teams, while Coach Fitz and Coach Collins have taken their respective programs to places I never thought were possible.
This GIF shows the two coaches sharing a moment and savoring their success. I can’t wait for today’s game against Wisconsin, and all of the Madness that will follow.
Hit ’em high! Hit ’em low! Go Northwestern Go!
