With the bye week behind Northwestern, the Cats should have had a chance to reflect on what went wrong against Army and chance to reflect on what needs to be done against Illinois.
Let’s get this out of the way. Army 2011 will have a potential to crack the LTP House of Pain, but time is needed for context.
Northwestern’s offense could never find its footing and the defense was not consistent enough to give the offense the time it needed to find it. The Knights handed the Wildcats their first loss of the season 21-14.
Northwestern’s run defense was a big question mark heading into the season after the final three games. The next three games will show what kind of improvement the run defense has made.
Can you feel the drumbeat? Persa signs shift positive, Army game to be a sellout with tons of purple and the Cadets are equally as dinged up as we are. CAN’T WAIT!!!!
How do we parlay the Sailgate buzz to move the season ticket needle?
The BTN kicks-off the first of three Northwestern days this summer today, but for us, it’s just another day with a ton of purple-packed info.
