When you step back and take a look at it, college football is full of odd and comical minutiae. That's what makes it great. Every program has quirks that make it unique and also laughable to the outside world.
So each week during the 2015 season, Ben Goren will explore the weird ticks of Northwestern's opponents. Because... well, because Every Week is Hate Week.
Coming off a bye week, and thus a week of love, it's time to get back to the hate. And what better opponent to be the subject of that hate than Penn State.
Ben Goren explores the claustraphobic, insulated little universe that is Happy Valley, and the joke of a coach that rules over that universe.
