So with the ND series coming to an end, and ND trying to make it so they have more home games in this round of the series than Michigan by having the series start and end in South Bend, would you want to see the game take place at a neutral site?
Notre Dame is playing Miami (YTM) this weekend at Soldier Field in Chicago. The largest chapter of the UM Alumni Association is based in Chicago, and it's a far more entertaining city for night life than South Bend. So, would you want to see the final game in the series be at Soldier Field instead of South Bend? Or do you want it to be in Indiana?
I personally would love to see it in Chicago. No matter where it is I'm going to try and get tickets, but I'm sure they're going to cost an arm and a leg for this final game in the series.
Anyone like this idea? If it is at a neutral site, is there a better venue than Chicago you'd like to see?
With conference season finally in full swing this week (10/12 playing, no OOC games), and the Big Ten looking wide open, let's take a look at who is favored and by how much. All lines are from Caesars.
Michigan State v. Indiana (+16)
Illinois v. Wisconsin (-14)
Nebraska v. Ohio (-4)
Northwestern v. Penn State (-3.5)
Michigan v. Purdue (+3)
Iowa and Minnesota have byes.
Vegas has Michigan playing the closest game this weekend, with Wisconsin and Michigan State expected to win easily. Is Purdue's DL that good/is Denard going to have another five turnovers? Can State put together a seventeen point win against an IU defense allowing twenty-seven points per game? Can Ohio pull off its second victory over ranked Legends teams in consecutive weeks, and by more than a field goal?
I'll take my own quiz: No, no, M covers. Yes. Yes, I don't know (Lincoln is still a mystery).
Dee Hart had torn his ACL again and will be out for the rest of the year. Very unfotunate for the kid. Especially since he was sidelined last year as well. Hope he has full recovery.
Edit: Only posted due to Dee being a former commit. Plus our fan bases obsession over him the last few years.

Finally got highlights of this game. I've been looking for it for years. Michigan made the return trip to syracuse for the home and home series. Michigan gets revenge in this game for what happened the year prior when Donovan McNabb came in and led the Orangemen 38-28.
