Podcast: Pat Fitzgerald joins Pound The Talk

Henry Bushnell and Ben Goren sit down with Northwestern head football coach Pat Fitzgerald to discuss a wide range of topics, from Fitz's personal life, to his team's 10-win season, to his thoughts on recruiting and college football as a whole.

Here's a rundown:

4:20 — Looking back on 2015 season
13:15 — Playing days, evolution of football over 20 years
17:40 — Coaching/watching his kids play sports
19:00 — Blackhawks fandom
20:15 — Balancing football and family
24:55 — Social media, technology, and the insanity of recruiting
31:30 — Gameday routine
36:15 — Lightning Round
38:40 — Favorite game of past 10 years
42:45 — Urging fans to fill Ryan Field

Thanks to Fitz for taking the time to make his Pound The Talk debut. We hope you enjoy.

One quick note: The podcast was recorded last Wednesday, prior to the NCAA's rescinding of its satellite camp ban. Our brief discussion of the ban, therefore, does not reflect Thursday's news.
