OK, here's the deal....I just scored a pair of tickets to Ohio State-Illinois. I paid 200 bucks for the pair (which I feel is a bargain, considering I spent 175 for a pair to see Ohio State-Indiana in 2006).
The game is in Champaign, Illinois (a 7-hour drive), so it'd be a nice little road trip. I've never seen a game at Memorial Stadium, mind you.
This game is in the 11th week of the season. It's entirely possible that the winner of this game will be the champion of the Big Ten.
Illinois has a tough schedule (Missouri, Penn State, Michigan and Wisconsin - all on the road), but could be anywhere from 7-3 to 10-0 by the time this one gets played. I call 8-2.
If they're having a good year again, Illinois fans will be foaming at the mouth to get tickets to this game. The price on ebay could easily top 300 bucks.
has it a bit easier, but still tough (USC, Wisky, MSU on the road, Penn State at home). They look to be 8-2 minimum, 10-0 possibly. You know what I think they'll be at this point in the year.
So I ask you, what would you do if these tickets were in your pocket?
A) Keep the tickets, make a , enjoy the game
B) Cheer for both teams to be 10-0, sell 'em on ebay and save the money
C) Cheer for both teams to be 10-0, sell 'em on ebay and go to the OSU-UM game with the profits
D) Give the tickets to a Michigan blogger so they can see an actual football game once this year
Feel free to elaborate in the comment section on what you'd do.
