On a side note, did anyone see the beautiful football facility Northwestern has built/is building on Lake Michigan which was highlighted on the telecast? As recently as 2016, their facilities were similar to Yale/Harvard. Their stadium is similar to the Yale Bowl, but the training, practice, meeting and other facilities are now light years ahead. They are also currently completely remodeling their basketball facility (playing offsite this season).

It will be interesting to see if these enhancements improve their program results through recruiting. Maybe the recent bowl appearance is just the first step. They will likely never be in the upper echelon of football, but that is not really the point. The quality of play has improved exponentially under Fitzgerald and the new facilities can only help them keep improving.
