Northwestern spoofs famed ESPN commercial series

Thanks Northwestern, you have impecable timing. Earlier today they released a video to YouTube meant to promote Northwestern football and their upcoming season – one loaded with expectations mind you. They also chose wisely, deciding to spoof on the famed ESPN commercial series known as "This is SportsCenter." 

You know, the one that often promotes it's on-air personalities and has also used famous mascots for comedic relief too. Well, here is Northwestern's attempt, titled "This is Northwestern Football."

Personally I find this to be a pretty creative and funny way to promote the program and coach Fitz. However, it's a good thing he's not quiting his day job anytime soon as his acting leaves a lot to be desired to say the least.
