it sounds like the Little Caesar's / Illich family will not cede their college football bowl turf to the Fords so easily, announcing that they will explore a college bowl game at Comerica Park.
i can't imagine that the B1G would put another team in Detroit for the bowl season, but this would give all of us up-north man-ball damn-the-weather tough-talkers a chance to go to a game outdoors in Detroit in January or December. the way the college football bowl schedule works with games starting around the 20th of december and some played up until the 10th of january, the games could be far enough apart to not overly fatigue metro Detroit football fans. and surely the Lions will be dead in the water by then.
Surprised to read that there were over 60,000 on hand for Purdue vs Central in 2007, but that last year with a blizzard on the way, there were only 23k for CMU-WKy.
can't we all just get along? or at least alternate years?
