Something about Tuesdays for Northwestern
After Northwestern ended practice Tuesday morning amid 80-plus degree temperatures that reminded me of mid-August and not nearly of late September, coach Pat Fitzgerald came sprinting over to the small group of media gathered on the Wildcats' practice field. He was happy that, for the second Tuesday in a row, the Wildcats had their best practice of the season.
Why is that? What is it about Tuesdays anyway?
"We're in the routine now and that first week is tough," Fitzgerald said. "I think after that week I might look a little bit at our plan for next year. I think [before the Vanderbilt game] we practiced too much. I can't believe I'm saying that, as a coach. We maybe ran out of gas before we went into Vanderbilt and we didn't peak at the right time."
