Northwestern in the Rose Bowl? The Cats in the Final Four? There are crazier Northwestern-related predictions out there, and we've found one.
Stealing an idea from legendary comedian Jerry Seinfeld, Northwestern coaches Pat Fitzgerald and Chris Collins star in a new video, "Coaches In Cars," released Friday on the Northwestern website.
For what appears to be the first of several episodes, the two coaches drive around Chicago, passing by every one of the four pro sports arenas and discussing what a great sports town the Cats play in (or adjacent to, if you're a stickler).

There are several highlights to this video, including Fitzgerald singing a few lines of the "Super Bowl Shuffle" and the head football coach explaining that his youth football number of 72 was in honor of White Sox great Carlton Fisk. But the best comes near the end, when while waiting at a stoplight at Clark and Addison, Fitzgerald predicts a Cubs-White Sox World Series.
He says it'll come in our lifetime.
That's one hell of a prediction, Fitz. This city hopes it comes true.
