2021 Summer Previews: Ohio State

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for, our 2021 Summer Previews! As per tradition, we kick off the series with a look at the Big Ten teams that Northwestern will not be playing this season. Ohio State is coming off another Big Ten Championship and a trip to the National Championship game. As you can imagine, they lose a lot of top talent off last year’s squad, but with the sheer amount of talent in Columbus, will that turnover even be an issue? You can download the episode from iTunes or directly from here.

Episode 458: Spring Wrap-Up

As we come to the verge of our 2021 Summer Football Previews, we need to put a bow on the spring sports. Lacrosse made a valiant run to the NCAA Final Four before falling to Syracuse. Softball made it into the NCAA Tournament as well before falling to Kentucky in their sectional. Also, June brings the end to the on-campus recruiting dead period, so we expect to see quite a bit of activity this month on the recruiting front in all sports.

Episode 457: The 10 Day AD

To call the past 10 days in the world of Northwestern Athletics crazy would be an understatement of epic proportions. Today, the Mike Polisky era came to an abrupt end as he announced his resignation just 10 days after accepting the job. Tonight, we raised the emergency pod beacon so we can try to make sense of what all just happened and where we go from here. We are your premier Northwestern Sports Podcast!

Northwestern’s hire of new Athletic Director Mike Polisky is, in a word, divisive.
