About the West Lot Pirates

The West Lot Pirates are the premier Northwestern athletics podcast and have been podcasting weekly episodes since December of 2011. We are three die-hard NU fans who have known each other for more than 20 years, and have a passion for all things college football.  We rarely miss a home game for NU and spend our fall Saturdays tailgating in the West Lot*, underneath the red pirate flag**.

For the fun of it, we decided to pool our enthusiasm into this podcast, both to focus on NU and to delve into the greater world of college sports.  We primarily cover Northwestern Football, but have a great love for all things NU and will discuss Basketball, Lacrosse, Softball, and other sports in depth. We’re always excited to continue the discussion, so please feel free to post your comments and questions here on our website, via email (westlotpirates@gmail.com), via Twitter (@westlotpirates, @NUMBTenor21, @JohnBLacombe, @Scuzz23), Instagram (@westlotpirates) or Facebook (www.facebook.com/westlotpirates).

*We were relegated to the Central Golf Lot in 2019, which we are content to stay in for the time being on account of it being better for the little ones running around
**Pirate ships flew a red flag to indicate that they would “give no quarter” aka spare no prisoners.

  1. I like your arrival and contribution to Wildcat coverage. Please add baseball to your plans for coverage of Wildcat news.

  2. Love the lead up to the Ohio St. great hearing from Jay. Feeling hope now in the English countryside.
    Looking forward to hearing you dissect our win this weekend.
