According to a report by USA Today, the Wildcats' head football coach was credited with a compensation package worth at least $2.2 million dollars in 2011. This marks the first time since 2005 that a Northwestern coach has been the private university's highest paid employee.
Last year, the Northwestern Wildcats wore a special stars & stripes helmet in their second contest of the season against Vanderbilt – a game which they won 23-13. This Saturday, they’re bringing the tradition back for another year against Syracuse. BTN’s Brent Yarina tweeted out the news this morning:
#Northwestern will wear this stars and stripes helmet vs. Syracuse....
The age-old argument about whether men should wear the jerseys of the teams they support reared its ugly head again at the Northwestern-Cal game, and in the ugliest way possible. Not only is the guy in the picture below wearing a Northwestern jersey, he went the extra mile and had it customized with his name on it.
