    I don't have any inside info, but I'm sure it will be heavy on preps and University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, which has a pretty good D3 program. Great town. In the summer you'll be near a lot of great vacation places, including a couple hours north being the best place in the 'World to be in July and August. I don't believe anyone from the Northwestern does anything on the Packers anymore as Gannett generally covers that with GB Press Gazette and maybe an Appleton Post-Crescent person.

    Good luck.
