And away we go. While most of us were watching our LTP Bowl Mania picks (and after going 2-0 like me wondering why I only put 3 total points on those games) and rooting for Arizona, Northwestern was busy with bowl practice and landing the first 2014 commitment. Chris Emma of PurpleWildcats.com posted the ‘Cats have secured the pledge of 6-1, 180-pound safety Jordan Thomas of Klein (Collins), Texas. The 3-star DB was drawn by the academic offering and the family atmosphere and he knew NU was what he wanted even befor getting the offer. According to WildcatReport.com, Thomas had an offer from Utah as well. Welcome aboard Jordan!
LTP Bowl Mania
#VenricMackDaddy and JuggleItUp are tied in first place with 69 total points after going 2-0 on day one of the LTP Bowl Mania. Obviously, they put 35 and 34 points on the two first day games and must have been sweating out the Arizona incredible comeback like most of us. Dan Baren1 sits right behind them with 68 total points. Yours truly has only 3 points after going 2-0. Things should get a lot more interesting next weekend when games start cranking up. The next game is Thursday, December 20. We’ve eclipsed the 200 entry mark which is an alltime record. We’ll get much more in to the picks as the games heat up.
Butler Loss Less Painful?
The ‘Cats home loss last Saturday to Butler felt a tad bit less painful after watching the Bulldogs knock off the #1-ranked Indiana Hoosiers in OT yesterday. Man, is Brad Stevens easy to like.
