A Lot Of Sports Media Went To Northwestern & They’ve Taken Over Twitter

Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism has produced a lot of successful members of the media community, specifically a very loud and proud chunk of today's sports media.
Despite being a longtime participant in Division I athletics, this is the school's first ever tournament bid after 78 years of falling short. Northwestern has been on the precipice of joining the college basketball elite for a while, and so their sports media graduates are ecstatic to finally be a part of one of the funnest sports traditions of the year.
How do I know?
Because they have completely taken over my Twitter timeline. As a member of sports media myself, I mostly follow sports reporters and personalities. So as Northwestern's game on Thursday approached, my timeline was flooded by ESPN employees decked in bright purple to cheer on their Wildcats.
