Would you go to Michigan vs ND 2014 @ Neutral Site?

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?

It may be bitter and vindictive, and quite likely impossible, but how about U-M covertly arranges another game on the ND date for 2014 and cancels the ND game incredibly late leaving ND holding the bag with an open date?  I know it couldn't happen, but I'm allowed my petty musings in the dark recesses of my mind.

I'm not a fan of anymore neutral site games and I would love to see a game there just once. No matter who the team is, you can't beat a college stadium in a college town.

I've been to a lot of college stadiums in a lot of college towns and some of them are pretty lame.  South Bend is one of them.  Don't get me wrong, the ND campus is beautiful and all, but for atmosphere, it's pretty mediocre.

I want to be at this game @ND. Rivalries are better played in the schools stadium...tradition, fanfare, atmosphere. No better atmosphere than a college football stadium. I will miss this annual showdown as it has produced some memorable games. But the hatred will remain until we meet again!!

Notre Dame giving up its last home game against Michigan for the foreseeable future to go play at a neutral site? Yeah, not going to happen.

I'd rather beat them on their own turf.
