The End

I wanted to let everyone know that I have decided to discontinue my post-win highlights for Northwestern football and men's basketball. There are several reasons why, including the significant time commitment required to do each video and the current state of my hardware and both capture and editing software. I do not have the desire to invest more money into a new computer and capture equipment. This also frees me up to potentially cut the cord and save money on satellite/cable TV. I have never made a cent off of this site or my highlights, though I'm quite proud to have raised over $2,500 for PAWS Chicago by giving away game DVDs.

Another reason is that these videos have become somewhat redundant over the past couple of years. The athletic department has been making their own videos after each game and putting them out very quickly. When I started doing highlight videos regularly in 2007 they were still years away from making their own, but they recently invested in their video systems and do a great job.

Rest assured that the site and all of the existing videos are not going anywhere. The cost to keep up the Vimeo Plus account and domain registration are pretty reasonable, so you will still be able to watch everything unless a legal challenge comes along.

Thanks for your support and go 'Cats.
-Jon

Thanks for all the vids! Back in the early days, this site was the best way to catch the win highlights, and I was always pumped the Monday after a victory to watch.

Huge Bummer! I looked forward to your videos after every win - and still watch them on repeat. If you ever reconsider...

Many thanks for all the memories and giving us a chance to re-live the highlights over and over again. The combination of video with the WGN broadcast--what could be more fun? I always anticipated the pleasure of the highlights after a win. Thank you!

Dang it! Your site is really awesome. I appreciate all the hard work that you have put in to it. I hope you reconsider after really big wins (like when NU beats the buckeyes at football next season...) and put out a video. On a side note, today Dave Eanet just had his contract renewed to do the next four years of wildcat sports. Go Cats!

Love your site!! You did an awesome job, and I can't count the amount of highlights I've watched re-living so many great moments. Thank you for put the time and effort into them. Go Cats!!!

Jon, thanks for all the videos. They really will be missed.

Thank you for doing this for so many years...it was awesome.
Your hard work made a lot of NU fans very happy.
Your retirement is a wise decision...NUAD is doing a fine job with the videos (I think they've actually learned from you!)

I hope that you are still open to adding old videos whenever they are found.
The 10th anniversary of the WCWS brought this video to my attention... it's not good quality, but it was a wonderful highlight.
If possible, it would be great if you could add it to the site.

Jon,

Thank you for all your hard-work and dedication on your videos throughout the years.

I can't tell you how many times your videos got me through the lengthy off-season and long work days.

I wish you all the best. Go Cats!

This was a go-to site every Sunday after an NU win. While I am disappointed it will no longer be, I certainly understand. I was amazed at the amount of time and effort that went into each video. That work was very much appreciated and an important part of the NU sports experience in my opinion. Thank you.

I did not know of your decision until I tried to see the Western Michigan highlights. I only wish to thank you for preparing the highlights for so many years and providing me with such enjoyment (especially after a Wildcat win).

Thanks again,

Go Cats!

Jon, thank you very much for your great contribution. And here I want to say that where we desire to make an end, there begins a fresh start. So, we can not end anything at all. Though the Athlete department has started to create their own, you can also make highlights of your own as your audiences are always with you. Love your work. 스포츠토토 토토사이트
