Where to go to read up on the Northwestern Wildcats.

SB Nation:

If applicable, we will put a SB Nation blog at the top. Start with Sippin On' Purple, who we'll hear from later this week. Also check out SB Nation's Off Tackle Empire, which has comprehensive coverage of Big Ten football.

Media:

Start with the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times, but NU coverage there is hit or miss. For a good conference-wide take, check out ESPN's Big Ten Blog. For a student perspective, check out The Daily Northwestern, considered by many to be the best college newspaper in the country.

Other Blogs:

Other than SOP, there are two other Northwestern blogs that should be bookmarked for this week. The first is Lake The Posts, which covers NU football like no other. BCI worked with LTP a few months ago on an early preview of BC vs. NU so check it out. The second is Bring Your Champions, They're Our Meat which has one of the more interesting names in the college sports blogosphere.

Message Boards:

If you want to visit message boards to talk with Northwestern fans, you can visit the Rivals (WildcatReport.com) and Scout (PurpleWildcats.com) sites.

Official Site:

You can find the Northwestern Wildcats official site here, where you can learn all about "Chicago's Big Ten Team."

Any other Northwestern sites, leave 'em in the comments.
