Live blog from Northwestern spring practice

As we hit the road for spring practices around the Big Ten, we're taking a new approach with the blog to truly take you inside these programs. I'll be posting pictures, videos, quotes and short observations throughout the day from Northwestern's practice in Evanston, Ill.

The Wildcats opened spring practice Feb. 27, and hold their fifth workout later this morning. Be sure and follow throughout the day for updates. Also, send in your Big Ten questions and comments as I'll be taking them at 2 p.m. ET, and Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald will be chatting here at 3 ET.
