Barry Alvarez not ready for outdoor B1G title game


One thing is for sure when it comes to football season in the Big 10 school cities. IT GETS COLD. This is one major reason why Wisconsin Athletic Director Barry Alvarez is not excited with the idea of the Big 10 championship game being played outside.

According to College Football Talk, Alvarez wants to keep the game inside Indianapolis’s Lucas Oil Stadium and away from the elements. Lucas Oil Stadium has hosted the game since its inception in 2011.

“I would have a hard time voting for a game outside,” Alvarez said at the Big Ten spring meetings this week (he also had some things to say about the Big 12), according to The Detroit News. “I know purists say football is supposed to be played outside. But I don’t want elements to have a factor in a game of that magnitude.”

What confuses me is the fact that every team in the Big Ten plays their games outside. So, if the teams aren’t affected during the twelve regular season games, why would they be affected in a thirteenth game?

To me, it sounds like Alvarez, whose Wisconsin team has appeared in three of the four championship games, wants to keep his fans happy rather than playing Big Ten football the way it was meant to be played.
