Will there be one? If so, who should the Illini play? Would you like a crack at Duke?

Northwestern to Play More Games at Wrigley Field, Should Illinois?

Northwestern clearly wants to "own Chicago" but we in Urbana don't want that to happen do we? Illinois's played a few games up at Soldier Field in the last decade including the Northwestern game in 2015. Maybe we should play a few more games up at Wrigley/Soldier Field to match Northwestern in the future. Northwestern Chicago's Big Ten team? No. WE ARE!

Now that they have Chris Collins as their coach and we're a perennial NIT team maybe we should hope to be their rival. But putting us with Michigan-Michigan State and Indiana-Purdue wasn't necessary. I didn't think they needed any protected rivalries, maybe just Indiana-Purdue. But the move to 20 games
