Perhaps he read my article, or perhaps Northwestern minds just think alike. Either way, the Tribune is reporting that Pat Fitzgerald has come out in support of hosting the Big Ten’s championship game at Soldier Field.â†µ
After visiting Soldier Field for the recent Bon Jovi concert, Fitz had this to say,â†µ
“I want to play it here,” Fitzgerald said Tuesday during the Big Ten Kickoff Luncheon at the Hyatt Regency at McCormick Place. “What a great weekend that would be in Chicago: the Big Ten championship game on a Saturday and the Bears playing for a playoff spot on a Sunday. It’s the ideal place, it’s outdoors and we’d support it. It would be rocking.”â†µ
The ball is in your court Mr. Delany.
