"The Wildcat Factor" says take da Bears

Only one of the 10 Northwestern University Wildcat alumni who have played for teams that made the NFL's "super" Championship have made the winner's circle. This year Matt Ulrich has the chance to become the second. But over the History of Pro Football, the NU Wildcats have a better record in the AFL and NFL Championships. Here's the full list of Alums who have played in NFL/AFL Championship games.

There's a dubious Northwestern record that kinda ended last year.
Here at Purple Reign we call it the "Curse of the Wildcats" but originally it was called the "Wildcat Factor" in some west coast newspapers [Alan Abrahamson]. We think talk about NU's lack of "rings" started from a comment by long time NU fan Jim [the Haze] Bendat - that no team with a Northwestern Alumnus on its active roster had ever won NFL's "Super" Bowl.

Jim was right then, and to date, ten Alums have made it to the big game, playing in fifteen of the games, all but one [2005-06 Steelers and Trai Essex] a loss for their APrespective team. Yes, three were injured and did not play in the actual game. It doesn't matter, their teams also lost.

The worse record is held by Steve Tasker [left], who played in four losing efforts with the Buffalo Bills. Steve Craig and Jim Lash played on the Viking team that lost to Pittsburgh in 1975.

But the Cats are not without wins in NFL Championship games.

NU's Otto Graham [below] played in an NU record 6 NFL Championships for the Cleveland Browns, 1950-1955, and won 3. New York Giant [and NU] great AP Steve NesiusRay Wietecha played in 5 NFL Championships 1956-1952.

Over in the AFL, Houston Oiler Mark Johnson played in the first AFL Championship, a win over the Chargers. If you run down the lists below, you'll find that a Northwestern alum has been present, and participating in many of of the great Pro Football Championship games in the past, just not in that elusive "super" game.

We don't have records of the Canadian League, although several Alums have also played in that league's Grey Cup Championship game.

To start off, here are the 11 Wildcats [including Ulrich] who were eligible to play in the Super Bowl and their game information: Previous Super Bowls
  • Darryl Ashmore - Oakland Raiders 1998-2002:
    • 2002 - Injured Reserve
  • Kevin Bentley - Seattle Seahawks 2005-06 
    • 2006 - Seattle lost to Pittsburgh

    • 1977-Sub in loss to Oakland 32-14

    • 1992-Special Teams in 37-24 Loss to Washington .
    • 1993-Caught 2 Passes for 30 yards in 52-17 loss to Dallas .
    • 1994-special Teams in 30-13 loss to Dallas
  • Matt Ulrich - Indianapolis Colts 2006-07
    • 2007 - on depth chart for game with Chicago
  • Fred Williamson - Kansas City Chiefs 1965-67
    • 1967-Started at CB in 35-10 loss to Green Bay in Super Bowl I.
As for the Curse:
The Steelers won last year with a former Wildcat on their roster, although Trai Essex was actually inactive for the game, which starts the argument about whether you have to be active for the "curse" to officially be broken.

Reserve lineman Matt Ulrich will be at the game this Sunday with a decent chance to get his Super Bowl Ring also.

Below is a listing of the Northwestern Players who played in the old League Championships, prior to the start of the Super Bowl in 1967 [following the 1966 season].

The Oldest League, the NFL, only lists Conference Championship results from 1933 on, the AFL started in 1960 and merged into the NFL for the 1971 Super Bowl. I'm sure some NU Alums played on NFL Championship teams prior to 1933 - that's our next research project.

By the way, Northwestern Alums have a 16-17 record in the NFL Championship games, 2-3 in the AFL. We added up each player's won-loss record, even if two Cats played in the same game.
