We'll be back tomorrow with actual legitimate discussion of Northwestern's football team -- there is stuff to discuss! -- but for now, let us just settle for concrete evidence that the Northwestern Wildcats have assembled to play football and stuff, and swoon. NU's official accounts and scattered media know how damn excited we are, and provided us with stuff.
Enough talking, let's play football. Practice No. 1 is underway. #B1GCats pic.twitter.com/KLgsUX8xQ3— NU Wildcats Football (@NUFBFamily) August 5, 2013
Here's QB1 and QB1A:
No music more fitting than "AIN'T NOBODY MESSIN WITH MY CLIQUE."

Here's Kain again, tossing to Rashad Lawrence:

We also saw the debut of some new uniform stuff. First off, THESE GLOVES:
Day 1 of @NUFBFamily camp means debut of new @UnderArmour gear. New gloves, longtime value. #B1GCats @UniformSwag pic.twitter.com/z6rNlvCYew— Northwestern Sports (@NU_Sports) August 5, 2013
SUCK IT, BECKMAN! It's pretty impossible to be a college football team without gloves that you can put together to form some symbol, and this works.
And there's some new cleats:
New high-top and low-top Cam Newton-model @UnderArmour spikes for @NUFBFamily. Sharp. #B1GCats #UniSwag pic.twitter.com/6rALDRI6Ks— Northwestern Sports (@NU_Sports) August 5, 2013
I'm not big on cleats, but, man, Under Armour is just the bestest.
So I can get pumped about pretty much anything Northwestern sports related, and this works. But like I said, real stuff later!
