The Crisis Cast


Jul 19, 2023

This is a moment of reckoning for Northwestern University.  In the wake of a hazing scandal within its football program, players on and off the field are immersed in a crisis.

In this episode, Lissa & Thom are joined by sports journalist Mark Carman. Not only has he been studying the evolution of college athletics for decades — he's also reported from the Northwestern football sidelines for over ten years. Mark calls former Wildcat coach Pat Fitzgerald a unicorn, but trouble has been simmering for a while in the team's performance. Carman has been a commentator and host for WGN Radio, Yahoo Sports, FanSided, and now CHGO Sports Network.
