    I thought that was only for this one year though... Hopefully they keep this, I think it is great for the college game to have the game at home for the best team.

    No OSU/Michigan, no title complications -> B1G CCG = ACC CCG

    :lol: Subtle as a fart in Sunday School. I bet the people who bought tickets are happy. What B1G, not enough leaders and legends to go around?

    They send you a ticket for $75. You sell it to a Mich State fan for $200. He gets it scanned at the gate. You make $275. Winning

    It's in Indianapolis. Should have been in Chicago. There are enough alums in just about any of the B1G schools to sellout Soldier Field. I hate CFB games in pro stadiums, but Soldier Field is a special place (saw a game there), small at ~65k and LOUD.

    I read a suggestion someplace else that the game should have been in Chicago as well. Anyone know if the B1G is locked into Indy for the foreseeable future ala the old Big 12 and Jerry's world? Or is it being rotated around?

    Seeing what the B1G is going through makes me very happy that Scott put the P12 championship game in the home stadium of the better team.

    The ACC CG is doing well this year, it sold out a few weeks ago. Granted they got lucky with the 2 best fanbases in the conference in the game, plus both schools are within a 3-hour drive of Charlotte.

    Another reason why regional rivalries should hold importance in conference alignment decisions.

    That is just pathetic from the B1G to pay seat-fillers. Sad that they can't sellout the stadium but just plain pathetic that they resort to that.

    Good thing it wasn't Northwestern vs Indiana in that game!

    Legends, Leaders, and now Lenders needed.

    If you read the article, you don't get the $75 until after the "event." And Michigan State fans aren't that dumb.
