Big, if true.

Well, looky here.

You know how all those Ohio and Michigan people like to whine about the fact that southern teams have this huge advantage because bowl games are played in perfect weather rather than subzero wind chills and blowing snow (as if they deal with much of that in the fall to begin with?)

It turns out that the Big Ten teams actually prefer to fly south for the winter. Who knew?

From the article:

The breakdown in negotiations occurred because Cubs officials wanted a premier spot in the Big Ten bowl lineup — the ability to land the league’s No. 3 or No. 4 team. When Big Ten officials queried schools, the response was that they’d prefer a warm-weather destination.

Well, I’ll be. You have to wonder who they surveyed. Since they are looking for #3 and #4 finishers, perhaps they reached out to Professor Klump?

No, that tiny head isn’t a photoshop.

File this one away for future use, folks, and have some fun with it.

Roll Tide.
