The GIST: The Bulls are putting together the pieces for a stronger season, and the Northwestern Wildcats proved the critics wrong by upsetting the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday. That's the only kind of sh!t that gets you some respect.

🏀Rebuilding for the rebound: After the glitz and the glam of the NBA Draft, the Bulls began their free agency moves by adding guard Garrett Temple and re-signing guard Denzel Valentine. Temple comes from the Brooklyn Nets and signed a one-year, $5 million deal while Valentine accepted his $4.7 million offer to stay one more season.

  • Both of these players bring the team versatility and efficient shooting, traits that new operations leader Artūras Karnišovas has explicitly prioritized this year. There are lots of free agents still on the market, and we’re excited to see what, if any, moves Chicago will make.

🏈Walk the talk: The Northwestern Wildcats were fired up to take the field against the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday after ESPN analyst Joey Galloway “disrespected” the squad. The extra motivation showed on the field as the ’Cats handily beat their Big 10 West rival 17–7.

  • QB Peyton Ramsey threw for two touchdowns, but the real MVP of the game was Northwestern’s defense, who forced five turnovers and made three sacks. Smart and athletic...who knew?
