If today were April 1st, I’d assume this to be a joke, but since it’s mid-November, I’ll take it at face value.
Earlier this week we posted a couple of photos that showed how snug a fit the football field inside Wrigley Field for this week’s game between Northwestern and Illinois was. I had mentioned that there was no amount of padding that could be placed on the brick walls in the east end zone that would save a player should he run full-speed into them.
Seems that both schools have figured this out as well. Now, it’s too late to move the game back to Northwestern’s campus, so they’ve decided on the next best thing.
Only one end zone will be used during the game on Saturday.
Can’t wait to see who loses his/her job over this.
