It’s that time of week where I reach into my latest mailbag. And, to no surprise, it’s stuffed with cards and letters about the new penalty for targeting a defenseless player. It’s not all about player safety, though, as there are questions regarding Indiana and Wisconsin. So, let’s get started. Since the penalty for targeting is here and arguing it does no good, I think the best way to deal with these is the have flags thrown as usual and let league offices review hits prior to the following game to determine if a player is suspended. It’s too much

Fitzgerald: 'We're just getting started at Northwestern'

If there was a darling at Big Ten media days, it was Northwestern. Expectations are at an all-time high in Evanston, where talk of winning the Big Ten is legit for a program that has eight starters back on offense and seven on defense from a 10-win squad that won the program’s first bowl game since the 1948 season. “We have a veteran team,” defensive end Tyler Scott said. “We think that experience will no doubt help us in the fall.

Missouri State is an easy win. A trip
