In the current political climate, it seems like anything may be possible.
And, in true basketball form, shoot your shot.
That’s what Northwestern basketball is doing.
The Wildcats Twitter account posted this video on Monday, calling for point guard Bryant McIntosh to be put on the dime.

The video features narration from Pat Baldwin, who played for the Wildcats from 1990-94 and had 452 career assists.
Baldwin says the faces on the United States dime has changed five times and it’s time for another change, Bryant McIntosh.
The junior guard’s teammates Sanjay Lumpkin and Nathan Taphorn then explain their case, calling McIntosh a “point guard for others.” Taphorn then says he supports McIntosh, “Because he gets me easy buckets.”
“I was alone, in the corner,” Lumpkin said. “But B-Mac found me with a pass.”
The video then ends with the quote, “Bryant McIntosh, a point guard you can trust,” before McIntosh approves the message.
Last season, McIntosh set a Wildcats single-season record with 213 assists. He was second in the Big Ten and ninth nationally with 6.7 assists per game.
Through his first two seasons, he’s also averaged 12.6 points per game.
If he continues to dish out dimes like he has over his first two seasons, Franklin D. Roosevelt may truly have some competition for his status on America’s 10 cent piece.
