Who were the last two college football teams to play at Wrigley?

(hint neither have football programs anymore)
(one last hint Midwest teams)

St. Louis University and Depaul in 1938.

ding

actually it was depauw vs st lewis

A DePauw shout on TCR? Now we're talkin....

Go Greencastle!

Monon bell'd

For those who were wondering, DePaul eliminated it's football program in 1939.

San Francisco State Vs. Father Flanagan's Boys Town. I cried when Spencer Tracey used the orphans to make a step stool and walk right over the goal line. Even Bill Cartwright couldn't stop him.

that was great Tim

man...b.harper hustles on everything. popup to shallow RF...he's 1/2 way to 2nd on an easy out.

now if he could quit taking every moment, AB, and pitch of the game personally.

...and if soriano could watch and learn...

AFL championship game on MLBN btw.

Hilarious. What I love about these by Tim is how well they capture Cub-dom (Cub-dumb?).

Bravo.

What I learned watching the opening announcers for the NU Ill game today.

You have your Sheffield (Avenue) and your Wavefield (Avenue)....

Jim Leyritz murders someone and the fix is in...on a Saturday, of course.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101120/ap_on_sp_...

"Testimony was inconclusive on whether Leyritz ran a red light on Dec. 28, 2007, when he collided with a vehicle driven by 30-year-old Fredia Ann Veitch, who died.

Defense experts testified that Leyritz may have been below Florida's 0.08 percent blood-alcohol level when the crash occurred, even though it was 0.14 percent three hours later."

Donte Stallworth approves.

Fuck Florida. This is disgusting.

Born in Chicago, raised in NJ...the pizza is way better in NJ/NY...just sayin'...

Where were you living when they seared off your taste buds?

lol

hey, some people like their pizza without 20lbs. of sauce and cheese between the crust and toppings...heh.

But why?

i dunno...i blame obama and pelosi and richard nixon and kanye west and willie horton and free masons.

don't forget about the KGC crunch...

Chicago makes more than just deep dish. Lots of great places with thin crust here.

Plus all the other wonderful Chicago traditions, like Italian beef sandwiches, and Chicago style hot dogs.

and the Best Gyros in the world.

I read this blog almost daily but seldom comment, your baseball insight is far beyond me. However, when we start talking pizza, I have to put in my two cents. I spent several years as a touring musician and have had slices of pizza throughout the US and Europe (note in Germany, the word that looks like pepperoni is not pepperoni, it is pepperchini peppers). NY/NJ, hands down, have the best slices of pizza plus you can get served and on your way in less than 30 minutes. My Chicago pizza attempts have ended in debacles. I'm sure there are some great local spots, but the locals we asked did not apparently send us to them. However, Chicago does have the best after gig, go out on the town because there are certain cheap dive bars that don't close until god only remembers what hours.

BTW, thanks for all the great Cubs discussions and information this site provides. Whenever I have Cubs discussions with my friends that are casual fans, I appear to be a genius armed with the insight you all have provided. Thanks.

Cubs, Red Sox, Nats, O's and White Sox

That actually says teams that have shown interest in the past... I guess if Howard is a $25 million player, then Gonzalez must be... but that seems a little much for what he brings.

What's with the odd formatting in the comments? Some of the later ones are appearing before the earlier ones (even if they aren't in response to any other comment). The order is all messed up.

The site is possessed. Same thing happened on halloween

"Talks between the A's and Japanese right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma have broken off, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle."

...and the A's ruin that for everyone, including Iwakuma.

they knew they didn't need a SP that badly or wanted to spend the money...though Iwakuma is supposedly demanding 15+m a year...which is stupid.

  • The Reds bullpen -- statistically one of the worst in the history of baseball -- has no-hit the Cubs for 7 innings. That just sucks.

  • Nice inning from Carl Edwards Jr - two straight quality appearances for a pen that could use it.

  • Runners left in scoring position, 2 out: Heyward; Baez, J 2; Bryant.

  • Arrieta pitches like crap and gets a W, Lester pitches brilliantly and doesn't. Baseball!

    Man, have we been giving up a lot of 2-out runs lately. C'mon Hector -- Eugenio Suarez??? Sheesh.

  • To have Billy Hamilton break your shut-out with an HR is like Iceland winnng in soccer.

  • Hamilton - good grief. Does he have Lester's number or what!

  • and there it is...

    time to sweat it out now.

  • Yeah - I was waiting for someone else to comment first so they could shoulder the blame should cubbery prevail.

  • he'd actually have to get through these last 2 innings in 13 or less pitches to pull off an actual Maddux (CG in less than 100 pitches)...and I probably jinxed the whole game with my comment so I'll shut up now.

  • An efficient one-hitter through seven innings - seems reasonable to me.

    Quite the contrast from last night

    Eric S 1 hour 52 min ago view
  • It's really quite enjoyable watching Lester dissect the strike zone and a lineup like this...dare I say Maddux-like?
