Fan of Fanboys - ^ all the neutral games are not close to home, and just because it is neutral does not mean it is weak ass sht
every bowl game, conference title, national title, etc is played at a neutral site
and a neutral site vs USCw is more challenging than playing at Northwestern
home and home for sake of it does not strengthen any argument. all road games are not created equal. I want to watch good match ups, regardless of the location.
If the only way UGA had to choose between neutral site vs Notre Dame or home and home with Virginia I would absolutely choose the neutral site game. It matters more and is a better game
lol my god, this is a more hardcore rationalization than any bitter ex-girlffriend could ever muster.
Championship games are played on a neutral site because that's their nature. It's pre-determined destination that has to be earned by both teams. Of course it will be a neutral site.
Your other argument is ridiculous. If you pick any team in the country and ask if your preference is play them at a neutral site, or at their stadium, the answer will always be a neutral site.
Your other off-base assumption is that it's a comparative situation every year. It's not.
There was nothing impressive about playing a 2-10 Lousiville last year at a neutral site.
There was nothing impressive about playing Duke this year in Atlanta, a neutral site.
If they were playing top tier teams every season in place of scheduling home-and-homes against solid teams, you may have a pint, but that's clearly not the case.
You can try to cut any which way you want, but not having a real OOC road games in 8 years is weak by every definition of the word.
