The Chicago Tribune reports Northwestern wants to host either Iowa or Illinois in a Big Ten football game at Wrigley Field this season.
Northwestern hosts Iowa on Nov. 13, followed by Illinois on Nov. 20.

Make this happen Purple Haze! That would be awesome! Wrigleyville swarming with Hawk fans…drooling in anticipation.
i would love for it to happen but they've been talking about it for an NW/Illinois game for quite some time and nothing's happened.
how many can wrigley hold for football anyhow? compare that to NW's home field. would be like going to a COE game by comparison
Northwestern's largest crowd in 2009, against Penn State, was about 31,000. According to the Sun-Times, "The Wildcats averaged 24,190 fans at 47,130-seat Ryan Field this season (2009)." When the Bears last called Wrigley home, capacity for football was listed at 46,000, only about 1,000 short of Northwestern's current home field capacity. So I don't think playing at Wrigley would be comparable to playing at Coe College in CR…unless Coe is drawing better than I thought…
It's a snug fit for a football field in Wrigley, but the Bears used to do it. Here's a site that has a a diagram of how the grid fits on the field: http://www.andrewclem.com/Baseball/WrigleyField.h… (click on the football link on the right). The corner of the end zone used to hang over the dugout, so watch out on those fade routes.
Oh, gawd. Oh, gawd. Oh, gawd. This would be AWESOME for Hawk fans and a win-win for Northwestern and Wrigley.
Soldier Field took advantage of Northern Illinois when Iowa played there in 2007. There were SO many Hawk fans spending money in Chicago, but Soldier Field charged so much that North Illinois had little or nothing to show for the effort.
Meanwhile, Wrigley is hosting rock concerts and NHL hockey with success. Hawkeye v. Mildcat game would be freaking awesome!
Yeah, you'll all really love it once you find your $100 ticket gets you a seat behind a big steel support beam. Not to mention the lovely November breeze off of Lake Michigan, the medieval toilet facilities & complete lack of tailgating space. The only viable alternative is Soldier Field.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
Excellent Article. Im looking forward to your next installment! How do you come up with all these ideas.. 9mm ammo
