Northwestern's Vince Browne good to go for Saturday

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Wildcats weekly injury report was released Thursday and defensive lineman Vince Browne was not on it. Browne had dinged up his shoulder in the days prior to the Purdue game Oct. 9 and only played about a half. But it seems that Browne is doing OK and will start Saturday against Michigan State. But on the injury report is running back Scott Concannon with a groin injury.

* Despite safety Hunter Bates misreading two punts against Purdue that resulted in fumbles, coach Pat Fitzgerald still gave Bates a vote of confidence this week and said he is sure Bates "can take it to the house" at any time.

* Cornerback Jordan Mabin said this team is taking it upon themselves to change the way the football program is viewed on campus. For so long the Wildcats have been looked at as underdogs and fans have come to expect losing or underperformance. But Mabin said this team is working hard to change people's minds.

"We were eager and ready to get this week started. We're changing the culture around here to having a winning attitude. That's what we've been trying to preach to the guys and try get a win."
