Your post seems mean spirited to me and it does not appear to serve the idea of a forum for discussion and information. It is merely a negative opinion leading to no particular end. It does not further discourse in any constructive way that I can see.
here are a few I picked up when I searched Northwestern. Sorry NULax, Your Postings were the most prevalent. I understand you are passionate, it just irks others when a winner is gloating.
NU Just beat North Carolina, a perennial powerhouse by 14 and we read postings like this.
Re: Northwestern 21, North Carolina 7 - 2009 ChampionshipAnother reason for not going to NU.
All the extra hardware they have to carry along. It must weight a ton after a while.

Or upon beating Duke another Elite team by 10 goals:Northwestern 18, Duke 8 (Final)
Another dominating performance on both sides of the field. 5 players with hat tricks
Spencer 4g, 2a
Dowd 3g, 1a
Smith 3g, 1a
of course those stats are factual, but not necessary to trumpet
Or a team that Northwestern beat by 22 scoring the last goal in the last 30 seconds, was it necessary really?Re: Northwestern 23, Duquesne 1 (Final)
Norrthwestern fan's Response:
3) The Northwestern team plays 100% for the the full game and that's a bad thing?
Yes, when it comes to sportsmanship.
nobody wants their nose rubbed in a loss.
The hubris of comparing a single player to an entire team: The official game announcer for NU, later quoted by a poster:
Re: Vandy at NW - Defacto ALC Title GameOr as the announcer saidSpencer 7, Vandy 6 at the half.

So,LBBear, Since you want to stay on topic in this forum, who is your pick for Final 4 ?
Heck, have fun with it , my out on a limb team( Loyola) took a painful kick tonight from what I thought was a lesser team. I may have to reevaluate them. Who do you have?
