Linking Laconically is staying put

Andy Lyons

The Big Ten is doing everything it can to expand its footprint -- or whatever they're calling it -- but the heart of the conference remains in the Midwest. So today the Big Ten announced that the football title game isn't leaving Indianapolis anytime soon, and Linking Laconically is quite pleased with that.

Having been fortunate enough attend both B1G Championships involving MSU and a couple Big Ten Tournaments, I can say that Indy knows how to host a sporting event and make it feel like the biggest thing in town, partly because that's typically the case. Where a city like Chicago is huge and has an endless supply of things happening, Indy wholly embraces the football title game and basketball tournaments, making it feel like the huge occasion it should be for all the fans.

That's not to say I don't think the title game won't or shouldn't go elsewhere for a year or two in the future, but it's hard to go wrong with Indianapolis, if you ask me.
