It's been a relatively quiet weekend in Northwestern sports. We're still three weeks away from August 9, Northwestern football's training camp report date, and a little less than two weeks away from Big Ten Media Days, which are July 30 and 31. Meanwhile, basketball coaches are out on the recruiting trail, and players are in the thick of their summer preparations.

Coach Gary Barnett joined the crew too, and spoke with the team on Saturday:

We want to hear from you though. Let's turn this into an open thread. What are your favorite memories of the 1995 team?
