Friday Sips, Gameday Eve

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Check your pulse. We're one day from Wildcats football and mine is off the charts.

One day from now I will be losing my mind with you plebes in the gamethread. Here are your final sips of the offseason:

  • Inside NU wraps up the last week of practice. Read about the work coaches are doing with scheduling to deal with the string of night games NU plays in the first half of the season. Also, coach Fitz shares his thoughts on slap-dick practices. Slap-dick. Twice.
  • Kafka to Ebert for a 13 yard score. Jaguars are also wild cats, so this feels right. Props to announcers for taking forever to figure out who Ebert was, and being completely oblivious to the fact that the guys played together in college.
  • Read up on Cal's final week of preseason practice. The article tries to keep a positive outlook, but the Bears have a massive question mark for a defense. Also, check that video of Cal QB Jared Goff who I think resembles Matt Saracen. Let's hope he plays like Saracen from the first half of season 1.
  • Fellow B1Gsters Indiana and Minnesota won yesterday. Read about Gophers here, and Hoosiers here. I find myself in the demented position of not minding that we don't play Indiana.
