Northwestern putting conditioning to test

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
When I walked out of Houston's Hobby Airport Friday night, I felt like I was in a tropical forest, the humidity was that bad -- at ten o'clock at night. And this morning it was just as bad. I went out for a walk and was drenched at 9 a.m. So hopefully Northwestern is as well conditioned as coach Pat Fitzgerald says they are for their game tonight at Rice.

A quick downpour around 4:30 may have cooled things off, if just a bit, but Fitzgerald has insisted since training camp that this year's edition of the Wildcats are the best conditioned team he's seen. We'll see when the game starts at 6. The game is on the radio, 560-AM and WNUR 89.3-FM, but is not televised. I'll post updates to twitter @takouris.
