Northwestern basketball: Projected starting five for 2014-2015

NU's Sobolewski avoiding crowd noise

Dave Sobolewski was already having a rough season when Northwestern began its Jan. 11 practice. In preparing for the next day’s game against Illinois, NU coach Chris Collins ran through some of what he called the Illini’s “8,000 pick-and-rolls.” Sobolewski, Collins said, “got nailed on one of them” and suffered a concussion.

NCAA bans hashtags on football fields #WhitePeopleProblems

Hashtags on college football fields? To quote Jeremy Irons in his absolutely moronic opinion about gay marriage: “I don’t have a strong feeling either way.” But if the NCAA really has nothing better to do than get rid of them, stories about hashtags on fields it is.
