Pound The Talk: Northwestern-Penn State review, luck, New Year's Six bowls and Illinois

Henry Bushnell, Ben Goren and Josh Burton discuss a Northwestern football team that is 7-2! The guys discuss the Wildcats' win over Penn State, Justin Jackson's resurgence, Zack Oliver's performance, and James Franklin's coaching ability. Plus, how important was Matt Harris' return? How good was Nate Hall?

There's also a really good discussion of 'luck' in college football and how it pertains to Northwestern. Has this team been lucky? Is its 7-2 record an exaggeration of its true ability?

Non-Northwestern football topics include the dumpster fire that is the University of Illinois, and Northwestern University's announcement that it will break ground on its new lakefront athletic facility on Friday.
