    Iowa/ISU at Soldier Field

    I actually brought this up in another thread but wanted to get some more opinions on it. Let's say that, hypothetically, the Iowa/ISU annual game comes to a halt because of the extended conference schedule. Do you think it would be possible to play at someplace like Soldier Field or Arrowhead every 2 or 3 years?

    I think there's enough passion between both fanbases that we wouldn't have too much trouble filling up any stadium. And you have to figure that Chicago or KC would love to see Iowans invading their cities and emptying their wallets. Also, you would be talking about some epic tailgating.

    I don't see the logic of playing an in-state rivalry out of state.

    Maybe, if we're lucky, we can get a Duke-North Carolina game at Wells Fargo Arean.

    I was thinking the same thing with the Nebraska game, only in Winnipeg. Thoughts?

    Re: Iowa/ISU at Soldier Field

    Can't see it happening. If we played Iowa every 3 years or so, I have a feeling it would be in Kinnick or possibly alternating b/ween JT and Kinnick. I think a situation like you are describing works when we play a team like KSU in Kansas City or when Iowa played NIU at Soldier Field. However taking 2 teams out of the state of iowa would not happen. Think of the hotels in IC and Ames that would suffer, cant see either Pollard or Barta doing that. If we play Iowa it will be in the State of Iowa.

    in-state rivalry out of state? Won't happen. And, all of this stupid talk of the series getting canned...is off target. It's not going anywhere.

    Re: Iowa/ISU at Soldier Field

    Yeah, let's take a huge BCS in-state rivalry, and move itand all the fans' $$$ out of the state It's a ridiculous thought.
    Do you also think Georgia Tech-Georgia should move their game to Miami?
    Every big in-state rivalry plays home-and-home, every year.

    I figured for sure you'd have a coronary reading this idea after your lash at Pollard for moving the K-State game to KC.

    Re: Iowa/ISU at Soldier Field

    I understand the "let's not move the instate game out of state" argument. But if the game is not going to be played every year, I just thought a neutral site might make some sense. I don't see Iowa giving up a home game just to play in Ames. After reading Barta's comments today, I am even more convinced of it. So, I figured it would be more beneficial for ISU to play somewhere like Soldier Field than to come and play at Kinnick every other year.

    Re: Iowa/ISU at Soldier Field

    I would love it but thats just because it would take me only 45 minutes to get to the game. Its never going to happen though.

    I think we should have it at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, SD.
