    Episode 492: Tournament Time

    Big congratulations to the NU Softball team for winning the Big Ten Championship. Now, they're on to the Big Ten Tournament this weekend hoping to put a stamp on their chances of hosting NCAA Regionals/Super Regionals. Lacrosse is into the NCAA Tournament as well, drawing the 4 seed and a first round matchup against Central Michigan. A win would pit them up against either Michigan or Notre Dame, each of whom they've played this season.

    This week Veronica Burton became the second Wildcat ever taken in the top 10 picks of the WNBA Draft as she heads to Dallas as the 7th overall selection. We celebrate that, continue to rock and roll with the Softball and Lacrosse teams before we check in on some Football recruiting news and look at the USFL with a Northwestern view.

    Episode 490: Slugging to the Moon (Welsh-Ryan Roof)

    With Softball off to a wonderful start to Conference play (5-1), we have to take a closer look at the season of Rachel Lewis. She's not only hitting the cover off the ball, she's making her way up to the top of the NU record books. Lacrosse is also white hot as they gear up for the home stretch of the regular season. We've also got some transfer news as well on this episode of the West Lot Pirates.

    Episode 489: Softball Sweep!

    If you're not watching this NU Softball team absolutely dominate all comers this season, now is the time to fix that. The Cats finished off their early season barnstorming tour with a decisive sweep of the weekend series at Mizzou, knocking off the 18th ranked Tigers and no-hitting a very talented Stanford squad. This week we also celebrate Ryan Deakin's National Championship in wrestling, continue to marvel at the Lacrosse domination and check in on our NCAA Men's and Women's brackets before previewing the NCAA Hockey tourney.

    Episode 488: Bracketology with Scott Sepich

    March Madness is upon us yet again! However, a grave injustice exists as the NU Women's team was snubbed from the NCAA tournament this year, thus ending the fabulous NU career of Veronica Burton. To help us wrap our heads around the Men's tournament, we welcome our own Bracketologist, Scott Sepich back to the show.

Great N U Information and Fun

These two are very well informed and spoken, on all things Wildcat.
I will follow them right into my football future.

Only one complaint is that the one guy who uses the word etc. (Et cetera) frequently- always says it wrong, which for a Northwestern guy is cringe worthy. You may know what I’m getting at: “EK cetera”😒

UW Preview

Call this one the Homercast! Being a fan is one thing. Doing a pod totally lacking in any semblance of credibility results when you are so deep into fandom it’s impossible to see a team’s liabilities.

Great college football podcast

Great college football podcast with a focus on Northwestern Athletics and the Big Ten. Off season sports analysis is great as well. Must listen for Northwestern fans!
