Go to a foreign country and have to learn a new language? No thanks I'll stay in Merica.
They do know they are playing in Ireland not playing the Irish. Right?
Case in point: Tampa Bay this season. No true home games between Sept. 22 and Nov. 10, in part due to game in London ... two road games, "home" game in London, bye week, two road games.
I picked it up a bit by the end of the week when I was there.
Wow. Did not know that.
The OP should be given a mini-ban for the thread title, but also a nomination for Thread Title of the Month.
Irish people stole that island from the indigenous western Pict/Gaels. F*&k them.
Awesome. Half the normal number of a-holes that weekend on I-80.
This is a tourism stunt.....there will be 15,000 or so bored Nebraskans go(or more. I am underestimating for sure). I also smell BTN junket. Hell, can you blame them if you had that slush fund that they have. Spend it or lose it. 10,000 or so drunk and curious Irishfolk to fill out the bottom ring of the futball stadium and it will look OK on tv. What I don't get is Illinois? Illinois? Is Nebraska paying them what they paid Troy last year? I hope sports betting opens up a line on the over/under number of confirmed Fighting Illini fans in the stands. I would take the under on 75 right now. They really need to adopt a new marking/branding effort with their mascot. Maybe adopt a shark and start wearing gray uni's.
Sweet! Rutgers/Northwestern just announced their game in 2021 in Caracas. Bringing peace to the world through sports.
I think the Notre Dame games are actually Navy home games. Still makes since for Notre Dame though. It's basically a bowl game for the rich portion of their fan base.
Yeah, I happened to see an article earlier this season that included that nugget. And apparently, the NFL admitted/apologized for the scheduling quirk. (Like that would never ring hollow )
Great road trip! I'd go to Dublin to see ISU play.
Like others said, odd plan but if ISU was there and I had a chance to go, I would. Never been to Ireland but have wanted to see it for quite some time.
Somebody had to give up a home game. Might as well be Illinois! BTW, cannot drink in the seats at Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Quick pint in the concession area then back to your seat you go.
To make the game more interesting, the B10 should stipulate the loser stays in Ireland.
Maybe make it a double header with Rutgers/Maryland and get rid of 2 bottom feeders?
It's not much of a story here in Belfast and won't be. Most people know the NFL teams (mainly Patriots Packers Cowboys) but very few any college teams outside of Ohio State, Alabama and Florida. They don't know what an Iowa, Nebraska or Illinois is. I assume they are betting on all the Irish in Chicago making the trip maybe?
The Northern Irish love travelling to Florida and Vegas for holiday and can tell you about every little corner at Disney World and Universal.
just found out the N on fusker's helmet stands for Netflix
Its like a destination wedding. Yeah I want to go there, but I dont want to waste time with your dumb wedding/b10 game while Im there.
In 2021 Nebraska is scheduled to play Illinois on the road so they don't lose a home game. Illinois does.
Aer Lingus is sponsoring this so it is a way to boost tourism. Pick some teams that travel well and the Skers have a reputation for that.
