Michigan/Wisconsin to Play Outdoors?

I guess I'm hosting the party for this one! According to Mel Pearson, the Wolverines and Badgers are discussing an outdoor game to be played at Camp Randall Stadium in Feb. 2010. It sounds like both sides are very interested. Red said it would be great for college hockey and Mike Eaves said, "Other schools like Minnesota have been tossed out there, but we really want Michigan."

Can I just say HELL YES!

Outdoor games are awesome and to have one involving my team in my backyard would be absolutely amazing. Unless they actually decided to do one at the Big House, I can't imagine a better place than Madison. The city will be jumping, the bars will be packed, and by playing it in Feburary, it might actually be colder than the original Cold War (which is hard to believe).

Not to mention we'd break the record set at Spartan Stadium and get those bastards out of the record book :)

I'm a huge fan of this idea. I'm already super-excited about the prospect and the game is still 16 months away, if it happens. At least in the meantime, I'll be able to give full attention to the Wings' outdoor game at Wrigley since there won't be Michigan football on New Year's Day (or after November for that matter).
