From The Stands - Northwestern 2022
Hard to describe my mood. Just got back to the tailgate and chatted with Carmen and he's in the same spot. Yes, there's no Big Ten Championship Game. But when I say I don't care about that in this moment, I really don't care about that in this moment. Eight wins is so special to me.
And AS I'M TYPING THAT, I get this text from my friend Brent:
That's basically what I just spent the last 13 minutes saying into my phone on the field. There are a lot of gaps in here because I'm taking photos of players with the HAT, but these are my immediate postgame thoughts. An eight-win football season -- especially one that ends like this with all these INTERCEPTIONS -- feels better than I ever imagined.
I love this team. Go Illini.
