Maybe Delaney should have talked to the Colts or the Lions about using their stadiums instead of worrying about division names.

We can only hope that they will allow for the last game to be played north of the MD! And just it is known....Ohio Stadium, Beaver Stadium, and tsun's stadium all hold 105,000+ people, have luxury boxes. Ohio State can deal with the traffic associated with this game, and the city can accomodate all the visiting media, etc. BRING IT!!!!!

With only 25,000 tickets going to the combined schools, this is for the corporate sponsors now.

They want sunshine, warm weather and scantily clad women. Sorry b1g, you're out of the running.

This.

But in all fairness, I must note the NoFunLeague has the 2014 Super Bowl playing outside at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. However, none other than Jersey native and current NFL darling Joe Flacco is quoted as saying:

"I think it???s ****," Flacco said at yesterday???s press conference before catching himself. "I probably shouldn???t say that. I think it???s stupid. If you want a Super Bowl, put a retractable dome on your stadium. Then you can get one. Other than I don???t really like the idea. I don???t think people would react very well to it, or be glad to play anybody in that kind of weather."


There you have it, direct from a native Yankee son's mouth. Playing a big Champeenship game outdoors in January is a bad idea.

Dadgum frackin' copy/paste question marks!

If you want the Ship in warm weather places, then play the semi's at higher ranked team's house.

What a bunch of "b*itchy little girls" as Sam Axe likes to say.

A friend of mine used to say that Ohioans heading south during colder months often get sidetracked by Pigeon Forge, TN, but Michiganders don't stop for nothin' until they're in Florida (thus the milk jugs of pale yellow liquid and the used depends left in public restrooms at the FL Welcome Center off I-75).

Reminds me of something that happened when I used to live in South FL. I had a new hire driving down from Detroit call me while driving down.

He said "I'm almost there!", to which I replied "Yeah? Where exactly are you?" He said "I am at the FL-GA line, so won't be long now."

I LMAO'ed and told him not to get too excited, and take a closer look at his map. He still had 400+ miles or around 7 more hours to go. FL is a looooong state.
