At the risk of sounding whiny, northwestern sure gets a lot of prime start times for an average program.

Without doing all the research, I'll bet my beach house they play mostly 2:30 and 6:00 games. Heck, they even got Purdue, a bad team, at 6:00 last weekend.

Why the love from the Big Ten office?

But thanks for the update

Probably because Chicago is biggest market in the area.
Lol if you counted New York as being in the market

But Chicagoans do not care about NU, despite their Chicago's Big Ten team marketing campaign.

Look at their record over the last 20 years, and then look at ours.

On second thought, no, donít do that. Itís not... itís not good.

I'm about the furthest thing from an NW supporter u will find, but they have been an above-average football program for a while now. If we start having the type of consistent winning seasons that they have had the past 10-15 years or so, we will enjoy more & more of those better start times.
