Big Ten Football Championship Game Location 2011

Where should the new Big Ten Football Championship game location be located, that is a question we are beginning to hear more and more often. There has been a lot of talk of Indianapolis and Chicago on a rotating basis, which we think isn't a bad idea if it is held more often than not at Lucas Oil Field. Lucas Oil Field is the correct choice most of the time for this game with their experience with major NCAA events and the fact Lucas Oil Field was seemingly built for the Big Ten Football Championship game with its retractable roof. Without the retractable roof for Lucas Oil Field the Big Ten would have had a bit of a problem on its hands because we would have said you can't hold a Big Ten Football Championship in a domed stadium (in fact if it is held there we want a rule that they can't close the roof during the game for any reason). 

Chicago really isn't the correct choice for the game on a regular basis because it is just not a college sports city and that is a bit of a problem. It isn't necessarily a guarantee that both teams in the big championship game will always be able to sell out the stadium on their own as people might hold their money for a bowl game instead, so the hosting city should be able to move some tickets on their own. It is unfortunate that there aren't more options for the Big Ten Championship to rotate through, Milwaukee would have been a good choice every 5 years or so but Miller Park can't host a football game, the Vikings haven't gotten an open aired stadium built so MN is out, Detroit's Ford Field doesn't have a retractable dome, really the only other option we can think of besides Indy and Chicago would be Cleveland and possibly Pittsburgh and Philadelphia if more East Coast teams are added down the line.
