This week marked the tenth year since Northwestern football coach Randy Walker suddenly passed away at the age of 52. Ben Goren wrote a tribute piece to Walker and the 2000 Northwestern team that defined his legacy.
Football and basketball analysis
As always at Inside NU, there was plenty of hard-hitting analysis to go around. Isaac Bushnell (who is not a pseudonym for the dearly departed Henry Bushnell to avoid work contracts, but actually Henry's brother) wrote a piece on who could end Northwestern's NBA Draft drought.
The Inside NU staff conferred on its biggest snubs from the "Top Ten Most Important Players" series.
We kicked off a series previewing Northwestern's team this week, position by position:
- Zach Pereles wrote about Clayton Thorson and the other quarterbacks
- Will Ragatz wrote about the running backs
- Zach Pereles also wrote about the Superback position
- Tristan Jung covered the offensive line
- Zach Pereles wrote about the defensive line
