Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald is finally speaking up about the Wildcats' potential player union. So are several senior leaders.

Their message: a union is not the answer.

As Northwestern's April 25 union vote approaches, the debate within the team is heating up. While former Wildcats quarterback Kain Colter and the College Athletes Players Association seeks more support in Washington, they also need to convince a majority of current scholarship players to vote yes on the union.

Here's more from Fitzgerald and several current players, as well as a timeline of what will happen in the union push during the next few weeks.
