I came across an interesting article today about Northwestern athletics. Apparently they are planning on expanding their relationship with Wrigley Field, and want to have more games take place at the stadium. The article talks about NU having other sports play at Wrigley in 2013 (baseball, softball, lacrosse, and soccer), but that they also want to bring football back to the stadium in the future as well, once the field is renovated to avoid having both teams use the same end zone like they had to in the Illinois vs NU game a couple years back. Michigan is cited in 2015 as a potential opponent, with the current schedule.
So, what do you guys think of this idea? Would you rather go to a Michigan game at Wrigley or at Ryan Field out in Northwestern? The attendance levels are about the same so tickets should be comparably easy to get. I think Wrigley would be more fun, plus there'd be a lot of pre and post game bars to choose from, although tailgating would be more challenging.
