After a disturbing trend of declining on-field importance, the time is now to reverse the course of the Wildcat football program.
As the Wildcats turn their attention to Purdue and a must win to salvage a trip to a bowl game alive, we as fans can wonder how the Notre Dame game will impact the near term.

Pat Fitzgerald seemed as authentic as you’ve ever seen him at Monday’s press conference. There are some major reasons for concern heading forward.
It looks like a Slim Shady Saturday as NU fans look to see which Wildcat team is the real one. For that matter, the same goes for Wisconsin.

The ‘Cats begin B1G play on Saturday at their house of horrors. Aside from the ‘Shoe, the ‘Cats history in this venue is the worst. For fans, NU will be playing up against history against a program that has owned us since entering the B1G.
