If you want to talk about Monmouth University Football, Quincy University Basketball, Notre Dame Men's Soccer, or whatever, this is the place.

If that is the reward for finally making it to the Big Dance (2017), we ought to try that sometime. :lol:
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Sounds like Northwestern went about it the right way.

DePaul should have done something similar instead they build a 10,387 seat arena (which based on attendance is about 7,000 more seats than they need) eight miles from campus. I can't imagine being a student and having any interest in walking multiple blocks to wait for the Red line then get off at Roosevelt to wait for the Green line, then when I get to the Cermack/McCormick stop having to walk 4 blocks in what is typically cold windy weather. Ambling off to one of the multiple nearby watering holes on Lincoln would have got my vote.
