    2012 Season Northwestern Wildcats Team Thread

    Evanston, Illinois

    A new dawn as arrived for the Northwestern Wildcats, as new coach Jared Vagcrusher officially arrived today at Ryan Field for the first time, which fans hope is the first of many times for the long-time coach.

    Vagcrusher's road to Evanston has been a wild one. Following a 21-17 loss to Florida in his first championship game appearance (Dolfinley, if you read this, fuck you! jk), Vagcrusher left the Trojans to take his dream job at Penn State, with whom he won two consecutive BCS titles, both against Oklahoma and pussy ass Coach Poopah.

    In the off-season, Vagcrusher was offered an insane amount of money to return to his hometown of San Diego and coach the Chargers. After a 9-7 record in the opening season of Grinders 2012, Vagcrusher decided to say "Fuck this shit," and headed north to Seattle. It is rumored the move was highly motivated by Seattle's close proximity to Canada and dirt cheap price for blow north of the border. Two seasons in Seattle resulted in two playoff appearances and one narrow defeat in the NFC Championship game at the hands of fellow NCAA returner Coach Errig. Following a controversial loss to Detroit in the wild-card round the following year, Coach Vagcrusher was hospitalized due to an enlarged heart from his cocaine addiction, leading to an early retirement. After a few years of physical therapy, lots of Yoga, and medication, Vagcrusher accepted an offer to return to the B1G and lead the wildcats.

    Coach Vagcrusher has pledged to bring a new approach to the offense, utilizing multi-talented Kain Colter at QB in a mix of air-raid and spread concepts, as well as junior Mike Trumpy and freshman Jordan Perkins in a timeshare at running back.

    On defense, there is a lot of work to be done, and Vagcrusher has brought in his long time defensive coordinator and best friend Huggy Balls to try and revamp the swiss cheese defense NU has grown accustomed to. The secondary is raw and inexperienced, the front four are weaker than an old mans prostate, and the backers are decent, but will the prove to be decent enough? Only time will tell.

    Coming off of a thrilling 35-28 win over CSU, NU went on the road again to take on Eastern Michigan

    Impact Player QB Kain Colter, who only played the first drive agains CSU before suffering a concussion, came out strong, opening up the game with a TD on an option keeper from abut 30 yards out.

    Starting tailback, Mike Trumpy, who also missed the majority of the season opener with a strained hamstring, punched in a 14 yard TD run

    Following a INT from the NU defense, freshman halfback Jordan Perkins scored from 3 yards out to make it 21-0 in the second.

    EMU got on the board with 2 minutes left in the first half, putting together a long scoring drive fueled mostly by QB scrambles despite the NU defense having an impact LB in spy (this was kinda weird)

    Going hurry up, not willing to let EMU go into half with momentum, NU scored on a 39 yard pass from Colter to Cameron Dickerson making it a 3 score game again with 4 seconds left in the half.

    EMU came out of the gates on FIRE in the second half, eating up 3 minutes of clock and driving down to the 3 yard line before having to settle for a field goal

    NU suffered a huge loss on that drive, as impact player, defensive captain, and top rated DB sophompre Ibraheim Campbell suffered a broken leg and will miss 7 weeks. Yikes.

    NU put together a 13 play, 69 yard drive eating 5 minutes of clock capped off by a 7 yard pass to the backup TE from Colter to make it 35-10 at the start of the 4th

    EMU just wouldnt give up, keeping it close enough for NU to have to worry. They scored quickly, in under 2 minutes, to make it 35-17 with 7 minutes left. Majority of their yards on that drive were from a screen pass and QB scrambles still beating a spy on D

    NU responded yet again tho, with Kain Colter adding his 2nd rushing TD of the day on another option keeper to ice the victory making it 41-17, which ended up being the final score.

    Player of the game:

    Offense - Kain Colter

    14 for 16 - 234 yards - 2td - 1int - 8 carries - 69 yards - 2tds (sacked twice)

    Defense - Damien Proby

    13 tackles (8 solo) - 4 TFL - 1 sack
