Northwestern at Wrigley

Seems the NU AD has had a brainstrom  He's seen hockey at Wrigley.  He's seen NIU vs Iowa at Solder Field, and now he wants into the action, proposing a game at Wrigley with Illinois.   

Evenston to Wrigleyville is not a tough trip for the 18 people they normally put in the stands, and Illinois will obviously fill the stands, so it's a win for them, as they would get those box office numbers, and it wouldn't be any more or less of a "home" game than they normally put together.

But even by Evenston standards, that would be the worst tailgating ever.  No, let me ammend that, it would be a great 1 hr of slamming drinks at the bars there before the game, but non-existent tailgating. 

Still, if Illinois wants to take a pass on it, I'm sure we could be persuaded to join.  As anybody who was at the Cubs game before the Iowa/NIU game knows, chanting I-O-W-A in the friendly confines works quite nicely.
