This Saturday Illinois will host in state rival Northwestern on the hallowed baseball grounds of Wrigley Field. This is not the first time that a football game as been played at Wrigley as for years the Bears played their home games at 1060 West Addison Street. This is the first time that some moron who obviously has never seen a football game has decided to move the goalpost.
The good folks on the north side of the Windy City must have forgotten that behind that pretty ivy is a solid brick wall. With no room at all beyond the back of the endzone someone is almost assuredly going to get hurt. We all remember what happened to Houston WR Patrick Edwards a few years ago when some band geek left his wagon behind the endzone. That was one of the most devastating injuries I have ever seen and it was just a cart which actually gave way just a little bit. What happens when a Wildcat or Illini WR runs full speed into a solid brick wall? Tune into to ESPNU @ 2:30 this Saturday to find out.
