As we pointed out in our terms sheet, Pat Fitzgerald loves to talk about his "young men." Basically, it's a way to point out that Fitz doesn't just coach football players, he turns them into terrific ... well ... young men. According to the ASAP Sports transcript, Fitz said the term six times during his opening 15 minute media session — a little over once every two minutes. To contrast that, he said "Northwestern" and "Big Ten" just twice each. During the breakout sessions, which are not transcribed, he said it even more ... up to 10 times, according to Paul Banks. We might not get football for another month, but it's great to see that Fitz's talking points are in midseason form.

Hey, look, another new scoreboard!

From Teddy G.:

NU fans attending basketball games, volleyball matches and wrestling meets will notice a center-hung two-sided display board covering 300 square feet. Boards mounted on the east and west walls will cover 238 square feet.

For reference, the current video board at Ryan Field is 390 square feet (new one will be 1100).

Hey, look, a new scoreboard!

Northwestern Athletics announced today (Monday) significant upgrades to the in-stadium video display capabilities in Ryan Field, with plans to nearly triple the size of the existing videoboard and install new LED ribbon boards overlooking both the north and south end zones.

Now, we just need to see Fitz and a few players use the new video board to replicate this great bit from Conan O'Brien.

My dad bought a stuffed wildcat and has it in his mancave filled with Northwestern memorabilia. A strategically placed orange works wonders this week
