While most major universities are already back and underway, the Wildcats are taking a bit more time before getting to work.

I suppose it’s better to show up later than never show up at all when it comes to the party that is voluntary workouts.

A large portion of Power Five teams already have workouts underway. The moment the green light was smashed, teams immediately returned.

For whatever reasons Northwestern has, the Wildcats are taking some extra time before getting to work. That’s their choice.

The good news is that they’re finally coming back in less than two weeks. That’s great news for fans of Northwestern and people who love college football in general.
