This post is not really a rant but does not belong on the FB or BB boards Tomorrow (Nov 27) if he were alive, Jimi Hendrix would have been 75 years old ! I was an undergrad at NU 1967-1971 and recall an informal campaign to change the name of the sports teams from Wildcats ( a name shared by many other schools/universities) to Purple Haze (arguably the most well known Jim Hendrix song). In fact in April 1972 the name Purple Haze won a non-binding student body poll and the name change was endorsed by Daily Northwestern. It will never happen but Purple Haze (also the name of an NU a cappella group) would be cool ! Despite this post ..GO (WILD)CATS.Hope they win their bowl game !
