"Nap time'' is a popular topic for Wildcats

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald was joking Monday when he talked about scheduling “nap time” for his players before Saturday’s 2:30 p.m kickoff against Nebraska. The joke arose after Fitzgerald said he noticed his players seemed sluggish before their 2:30 p.m. start against Boston College last month.

Players told him it was because “it was nap time,” which led to Fitzgerald’s joke that he would schedule a morning nap time for the Nebraska game.That’s what caught the nation’s fancy this week more than the Wildcats’ 6-1 record.On Saturday, The Huffington Post had joined USA Today, ESPN and CBSSports.com in writing about nap time.
