SORT BY Relevancy
We chat with former SB Nation intern and current Inside Northwestern editor Kevin Trahan to get the rundown on Northwestern's football team for next year, whether last year was an aberation or the norm, and whether the team can reboudn from a crazy offseason to make a little noise in the Big Ten West. Kevin also gets us up to speed on the major NCAA court cases, and what to expect from testimony over the next few days.
Northwestern NLRB board buled that Northwestern football players are employees. This is a huge decision that could have major ramifications. Do you like this decision? Dislike? There's a lot to break down here. Feel free to call in with your thoughts on this issue. As usual, we'll discuss other sports topics that are trending online and in the national media. Of course, we'll also have Seattle-related topics since we're broadcasting from Washington!

Our Wednesday Football Preview shows continue!
We'll preview the Packers/Ravens match-up and go in-depth as to how Dom Capers and his defense will deal with the loss of stud linebacker Clay Matthews.
We'll talk with our own Andy Johnson of Bucky's 5th Quarter about the Badgers hockey season starting THIS FRIDAY!
Plus, Rodger Sherman from SB Nation's "Sippin' on Purple" to preview what Kain Colter and Northwestern will bring to Camp Randall Saturday afternoon against the Wisconsin Badgers. We'll look at the match-ups and which Wildcats will give Gary Andersen and his team fits, and what Wisconsin can do to exploit that defense.
Well we go ahead and review the Nebraska game, we try and find out if there is a solution to the offensive lineman problem and whether it can be fixed before the Northwestern game. Either that or we may talk basketball, because the football team makes us angry. Either way we talk the Wolverines for an hour, and we hope that you will join us at 11am on Saturday morning right here at blogtalkradio.com/sportsweeklive.
On Sunday at 1:00 ET, the second-ranked Indiana Hoosiers (15-2, 3-1 B10) will head to Evanston to take on the Northwestern Wildcats (11-7, 2-3 B10) on the Big Ten Network.
Jerod will be supporting Tom Crean's brother-in-law watching the 49ers, so Ryan, Zach, and Andy will guide you through another episode of The Assembly Call after the game.
