We’ve talked a lot about how much NU has struggled on one side of the ball this year. Now, others are doing it for us!

When it comes to putting points on the board and just the general concept of offense, the Wildcats have not had a lot of success in 2019. In fact, based on the abysmal performances we’ve seen over the past month, they may be one of the worst offenses of all time, and they are certainly already in that conversation when only Power 5 teams are being examined.

Unsurprisingly, people around the college football landscape have started to notice. Some of them had funny (or just sad) things to say about the phenomenon! Without further ado, let’s open that little blue app.

Northwestern has not exactly kept it close recently

A -100 point differential over only 180 minutes of action (down at -127 for the year) isn’t what you want!

Northwestern is having some difficulty scoring, you may have heard

If you didn’t know, now you know!

Ok, Northwestern is having a lot of difficulty scoring

That seems pretty bad, in my opinion.

Some stuff that I tweeted while writing this article because nobody mentioned it

Gotta be honest, I think people are focusing too much on the “lack of touchdowns and points” thing when talking about NU’s offensive deficiencies. There’s lots of other material to discuss here!

People are, unfortunately, starting to notice

When the national media pays attention to Northwestern’s offense, it never seems to be for a positive reason!

As always, gotta finish with BYCTOM

To conclude, Northwestern’s offense is not good. Like, at all. There are even lots and lots of stats to prove it.

Anyways, enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
