Big Ten Championship at Lambeau? Yes Please!

The Big Ten can now host a title game in football. If they do, is Lambeau the ideal location to host it?

With the addition of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, the Big Ten pulled into a tie with the Big 12 for the title of "Most Misleadingly Named Conference". (Switching names would be easy, but probably even more confusing than they are now.) More importantly, the Big Ten can now host a conference championship game in football since the NCAA requires at least twelve teams to be in a conference for such an event.

While most people are under the impression that conference championship games are basically a license to print money for all involved, a Big Ten title game isn't exactly a done deal. But let's be honest -- it's going to happen sooner rather than later.

So one big question remains -- where the heck are they going to play it?

Well, how about Lambeau?

The Packers sound like they're already on board with it. I know it isn't exactly balmy in Wisconsin just a few weeks before Christmas, but this just screams Midwest football, doesn't it? The history, the weather, the atmosphere, the tailgating...it just sounds right. Besides, it would be nice to see good football played at Lambeau Field more than once a year when the Vikings come to town. (Sorry, I couldn't help myself. This is still a Minnesota blog!)

There are other stadiums that would also suit the Big Ten championship just fine, such as Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis and Soldier Field in Chicago. Maybe they could even rotate between sites. But I think the mystique of Lambeau would make the country's newest title game really special and unique.

Do you agree? Would fans and players love the idea or hate it? Let us know in the poll and comments.
