Question by : Anyone else think some bowl games should get moved up north?
I dont think its fair for those Big ten schools, the northern big east schools, and Mac schools to basically never get home field advantage in a bowl game. The Rose bowl? big ten vs pac-10, yet every year its in pasadena, which is a home game for the pac-10. Im not sayin change that one cas thats just tradition. But every bowl game is pretty much in florida, texas, and all southern states. Yah theres a few were it gets cold, like the bowl in boise, and theres one in detroit. But common, big ten schools build there teams around the fact that there playing there oponents, and the cold, come november. And southern schools, and west schools, got all the speed, and spread styles because they dont have to worry about the cold. But the advantage always goes to the south because thats were all the bowl games are played. Also homefield advantage.
They should bring some games up north, theres just as big of media markets, if not more, the fans will go out in the cold to watch, even if its below zero for a game. Put bowl gmaes in Chicago, a bigger bowl game than little caesers in detroit, use the indianapolis colts new dome stadium for games. i mean even it out a little. Philadelphia would be a good spot.
Did u see last year when Wisconsin played miami (fl) in champs sports bowl, it was in florida but the temp was like 40 degrees, and wisconsin smoked the hurricanes, todays game in el paso, the canes were dressed like it was in alaska, and the temp was only 38. and notre dame killed em. give an advantage to the northern schools for once. i mean really. And i liked watching the game in yankee stadium it was cold and it was fun to watch.
It doesnt have to be a weather advantage, just homefield. Put a game in the colts new dome stadium. Or a bigger one in Ford field in detroit. Minnesotas metrodome when the dome get put back up if it ever does. Milwaukees baseball field. Just bring some up here, Its not all about the teams playing, so the fans up here can go to a game without having to take a plane.
