Northwestern is annoying. Their constant ability to come back from two score deficits to beat Iowa in the last six years is frustrating as hell. Their fans, who have turned from equally stunned to ALL WE DO IS WIN GROWL over that time, are teetering on obnoxious. Their coach, who clearly has a bone to
break pick with Iowa, is irritating.
With that said, their web presence (especially considering that Northwestern is a small private school that draws from a nationwide talent pool that, in large part, has no affiliation with Northwestern athletics when they hit campus) is pretty stellar. LTP's troll-baiting notwithstanding, both Bring Your Champions, They're Our Meat and SB Nation stalwarts Sippin' on Purple are must-reads for fans of Northwestern, Iowa, or comedy in blog form. Rodger Sherman from SOP is with us for this week's pod to discuss Gerry DiNardo's nephew, the beauty of Mi'kail McCall's name, how to work Childish Gambino references into your discussion of college football, and yes, Iowa-Northwestern.
