Let's start with the students.
An essential part of the college experience is going to games. Never missed a Northwestern home game in my four years there. But I also will never forget getting in the beat up car with a bunch of buddies and going on the road for a game.
Many of my experiences against rival Big Ten schools at their place beat the atmosphere of home games. We'd be going into hostile territory with our jerseys ready to shock them. And if we did, there was no better feeling than walking out of the stadium with a smirk on my face.
Are kids from Nebraska going to make the trip to Michigan? It's 12 hours each way. Leave Friday at 5pm get there on gameday at 5am. After a full day, then take the drive back another 12 hours?
