Episode 424: Quarantine Bar Trivia

This week need to wipe some egg off our face after our position last week that Northwestern would probably not get any recruits to chose the Cats over some of the top schools in the country. Caleb Tiernan proved us wrong less than 24 hours after our pod posted last week. Also, we have a fun game of Wildcat Football Trivia starting this week.

Recruiting Thought Experiment

Consider the rosters of the following two teams. Imagine they are going to play head-to-head, and reply to this post with your answers to the following 3 questions:

1.Who ya got?

2.Is it close, or does your team run away with it?

3.Regardless of which team you picked, would your decision change if Justin Jackson switched teams?

A couple of notes:
–Starters and reserves are listed for each team. Value depth as much or little as you want.
–Team A is obviously younger, so feel free to be as optimistic or as pessimistic as you’d like relative to the talent on the roster.
–Let’s assume Team A operates out of a more Bajakian-style(we think) double tight-end offense(better fit for the personnel). Team B runs a more traditional Northwestern spread.

Episode 422: (Imaginary) Bracketology with Scott Sepich

With the whole world turned upside down by the global pandemic, we aren’t going to do our usual bracketology podcast.
