I’d agree, if not for Thanksgiving. I’ve gone to Iowa games the weekend before NU in Champaign, and the students were already gone. I was so excited when our Iowa game (aka when I can get my friends to go with me) was moved to October, but it’s the weekend before my wedding.Totally on same page w/ your 2nd point, but vehemently opposed to your first. I never got the allure of giving up true home games for neutral site ones. The home game experience is precious and limited as it is, don't whittle it down any further!
I think ONLY for that NU weekend … IF we are good … it might make sense. Open to good arguments to the contrary, though! lol.
