For a recap of the rules, check out this post.


Question #1 (4 possible points):  The second of the “Deep Cut” trivia questions is a doozy.  It only tangentially involves NU Football, but we had to include it:

Napoleon Harris played for an absolute juggernaut of a high school basketball team.  How loaded was this team?  There were roughly 30 NFL/NBA seasons of talent on the roster, and that actually sells the depth of the team short!

This squad quite likely would have won 3 straight Illinois State Championships…but the same team (winner of FOUR straight championships) knocked them out of the state tourney all three years.

Name Napo’s high school, name any one of his hoops teammates, name the team that knocked his school out those three years, and name any player on THAT team.


Question #2 (3 possible points):  What team was removed from Northwestern’s schedule as a result of 9/11, what team replaced it, and who was the coach of the replacement team?


Question #3 (3 possible points):  Name 3 players who played both football and baseball at Northwestern.


Question #4 (2 points):  Identify the Player, Season, and Opponent in this photo. (Apologies for the res on this one.)
